Gosh Holographic: Revisited

If you remember this post, you will recall me ranting and raving about how great this polish was. But after wearing it for less than 24 hours, it looked ragged! So, for as much as I paid for it (shipped from Great Britain & took over a month), it's been sitting on the shelf ever since...

I've been on a quest for months almost 2 years trying to find a product that would make this polish much easier to apply. A google search landed me on eBay buying the Gosh Fix Base Coat 565 last year. It is supposed to help with application and give you better coverage. Nevertheless, I let the base coat and the polish sit on the shelf again for months. 

I decided to try them out today, what the heck, might as well. Ladies, let me tell you, this base coat is awesome, it worked perfectly!!
This looks sooo much better!! Look at that rainbow!! HOLLA-GRAM!!! 

I think I paid $10 for this base coat on eBay, which is a far cry from the price I paid for the Holographic 549! Don't you just love it?! Thanks for reading!!

"No Bake" Nutella Protein Bars

Does anyone else think that store bought protein bars taste like sugary cardboard?
Ugh. I hate them!
Here is a quick and easy recipe that I found after following a fellow Instagrammer @TastyHealth. You can also find them on her blog here


1 cup rolled oats
1 scoop 100% Whey vanilla or chocolate
1/2 tbsp cocoa
1 tbsp almond or hazelnut butter
1 tsp chia seeds or flax seeds (or whatever other seeds)
1-1.5 tbsp water

  1. Place all ingredients in a bowl. Start with 1 tablespoon water and add as needed.
  2. Mix all ingredients together with your hands until you have a firm dough. Divide into 2 pieces and shape into bars. 
  3. Wrap in aluminum foil and store in the fridge until needed.
(NOTE:  Use a little water as possible to prevent overly sticky bars)


Here are Tasty Health's nutritional facts...

Nutritional information per serving (2 small or 1 large bar):
377 calories
32g protein
27g carbohydrates
14g fat

These are soooo good! If you are a protein bar lover, you have to give these a try! And put your own "spin" on them. I found a organic chocolate peanut spread at my local whole foods store that I will use next time to cut the calories and fat even more!
