Nailed It!

More splatter nails! splatter nails 1The other night I noticed we were out of 3 everyday Hancock essentials; toilet paper, tooth paste, and water bottles. Dire, right? I went to Walmart (one of my least favorite places on earth), parked next to the garden center in order to make a fast exit, grabbed the essentials + a few non-essentials, dodged screaming babies and rouge carts, and got the heck out of their. In my attempt to spend the least amount of time in Walmart I ended up leaving my purse in a cart in the parking lot. My purse, including my licence, debit card, favorite lip balm, favorite umbrella, $6, and 302948029384 bobby pins. Mini panic attack, am I right? Thankfully, as soon as I realized I called Customer Service and they told me a purse had just been turned in. I want to give a shout out to the kind soul that turned my purse in rather than robbing me of my fave lip balm. YOU’RE THE BEST!!IMG_8128 So, you’re probably wondering why I felt the need to tell you about my Walmart stupidity… Well, one of the non-essentials I picked up was this beautiful Hard Candy topcoat! It’s similar to this polish, but has more of the sprinkle effect!splatter nails 3

Root beer – IBC

IBCAllison’s Review:
Creaminess –  2.5
Not bad, I would say it was average.
Flavor – 3
Slightly spicier than most other brands with a nice root flavor. Classic and predictable.
Carbonation- 4.5
The perfect amount of carbonation. I just wish it didn’t make me burp every 3 seconds…
Packaging- 1.5
Well, it’s pretty boring. I’m not drawn to it at all
Experience- 3
This is the root beer I grew up drinking so the flavor is nostalgic for me.IBC 2

Ray’s Review:
Creaminess –  3.5
This is a decently creamy root beer.
Carbonation – 3.5
The carbonation isn’t too much and isn’t too little. It’s an definite parts of its flavor
Flavor – 3.5
I mean this is an IBC root beer. It’s flavor to me is just a very classic root beer flavor. A nice amount of creaminess and carbonation and normal root beer flavor. There are really no surprises here. But that’s not really a bad thing. This is a recognizable and reliable root beer
Packaging – 3
packaging is a simple brown embossed glass bottle. It’s simple but effective
Experience – 3.5
The overall experience isn’t really anything special. But very reliable. This is a simple no frills good root beer.

How do you feel about IBC?
