Hard Candy 20th Anniversary Nail Polish in Sky

I remember when Hard Candy 1st came out with "sky" nail polish, but I was never able to get it. When they started selling it at Walmart(08 or 09 I think?), I was thrilled to finally own more Hard Candy! I bought the Just Nails in "sky" & loved it for summer. When the 20th anniversary items were released in late April, early May, I couldn't wait to find them, but had no luck at all. About 2 weeks ago, I was with my boyfriend, shopping at Walmart late at night & we went by the makeup. Out of the corner of my eye, I spotted something baby blue hiding behind some non Hard Candy nail polishes. It just happened to be the 20th anniversary of "sky"! It was on clearance for $2, so it came home with me. 

I decided to compare the 20th ann. version to the Just Nails version. To me, they look just alike in the bottle, but they are very different when swatched. The 20th ann. is more creamy while the Just Nails one is more sheer. I can't say how it compares to the original, so if you'd like to share photos of the original, please do!

I like both shades but I will probably use the 20th ann. "sky" more. Both went on very easy and didn't leave any streaks. I also lucked out & found the 20th anniversary eye shadow palette, which I will be sharing soon. Please feel free to let me know if you were able to find of the the limited edition items!

Omega 3 Fish Oil Triple Strength Review

Omega 3 Fish Oil Softgels by Quality Encapsulation

Omega 3 fish oil is a great vitamin for everyone. Fish oil helps with lowering cholesterol levels, heart, memory, immune system and many more. Like the bottle says, there is no fishy after taste. I have had that problem with other fish oil vitamins. These fish oil softgels are filled with 1,500 mg of omega 3 fatty acid. Since they are a softgel, they are easier to swallow. 

I have taken these for almost 3 weeks. I have an auto immune disease that causes me to have achy joints and after taking these, I have noticed a difference. Normally, I am always in pain with my knees, but I have been having less pain which allows me to get more done. I also feel like I have more energy then I had before taking these. I also had no problem getting them out of the bottle. Other fish oils I have taken have been hard to get out because they stick together. I am very happy with these and plan on buying them again in the future.
