I really like this product. I'm not sure about it's effectiveness of strengthening nails, as I keep my nails very short, but it's great as a base coat under polish - it works very well as a ridge filler, making nails look so smooth, which is great prep for wearing bright coloured cremes. It is expensive, but my bottle, with regular use, has lasted over a year. Will repurchase.
Top/Base Coats -Creative Nail Design - Super Shiney high gloss top coat

I love this product. I started using it years ago on the recommendation of a manicurist, and have kept using it, stockpiling it when I can find it (I've been lucky enough to get a salon sized bottle really cheaply, which will keep me going for a while). I think it's much better than other top coats I've used, and I've tried other ones but keep coming back to this one - it makes my nails so shiny, doesn't absorb the colour from the polish like the OPI ones I've used have, and lengthens the lifespan of my manicures. Will definitely keep repurchasing.
Top/Base Coats -Creative Nail Design - Stickey -Base Coat

Brilliant base coat. As the name says, it goes on, and stays sticky, allowing for the polish to grip it. It lengthens the life of a manicure, and is IMO is the best base coat I've used to date - I think CND make great base and top coats, theirs are the only ones that I use now. Will definitely keep repurchasing.

This shampoo is great - it leaves my hair soft and moisturised, and the smell is gorgeous, sweet and minty. Would definitely repurchase.

I really like this product - it provides light coverage, and lives up to its name, giving a great glow. Would definitely repurchase.
Conditioner -TiGi - Bed Head Dumb Blonde Reconstructor
xxanaisxx 1/14/2010 9:50:00 PM
I like this product - it smells divine and has a great thick creamy texture. But it's not as moisturising as other conditioning treatments I've tried, so would not repurchase.
I love this polish - a beautiful shiny chocolate brown. Excellent application. If the bottle ever runs out, I will definitely repurchase.
Hair Color -John Frieda - Luminous Color Glaze in Sheer Blonde

I love the idea of this product, but unfortunately it didn't deliver for me - it didn't moisturise or give any shine, and instead left my hair looking dry and brassy/yellow. Will not repurchase.
Great black polish - super shiny and perfect application in two coats. Much better than most other black polishes I've tried, would repurchase.
I love this polish. I bought a miniature of it (I love Orly's miniatures, they're such great value for money and their brushes are good, unlike the brushes on OPI's miniatures, *gah*), and am still working my way through it. The polish appears to be Orly's Liquid Vinyl polish with different sized silver glitter sprinkled through it - it reminds me of a snowy night. Application is great, flawless in two coats, plus a shiny top coat. Wear could be better, lasts around 3 days before major chipping. But I love it, will definitely repurchase.
I love this blush - it gives me a great natural glow. The packaging is cute and convenient, and a little goes a long way. Will definitely repurchase.
Mmmm, I love the smell of this soap - I keep some of it in my room and it smells gorgeous. The grainy bits in the soap are annoying though and when I use it, it leaves the weird brown film in the shower, plus because the soap is so soft it doesn't last very long. Won't repurchase.
Brilliant product - I picked this up at the supermarket when I needed a cheap clarifying shampoo and I have to say I'm really impressed! It's super cheap and does an amazing job cleaning all the product etc from my hair, leaving it soft and shiny. Will definitely repurchase, I can't imagine paying for a salon range clarifying shampoo again when this does such a great job.
GORGEOUS, GORGEOUS color - it looks just like a sparkly red Christmas decoration! Unfortunately, the wear is shockingly bad - I had large pieces of the polish flake off my nails, which I've never had with any polish, OPI's or otherwise. I would wear it for a one-off occasion, but wouldn't expect it to last longer than that. It's such a shame, because it's such a beautiful color. Will not repurchase.
Styling Products -TiGi - S-Factor Smoothing Lusterizer
xxanaisxx 1/13/2010 3:52:00 AM
I bought this on the recommendation of a hairdresser, and love it - it's the only product I've ever used that has given my wavy hair the perfect look when airdried! Also, the smell is just gorgeous. Having said that, it is really expensive, and comes in such a weird shaped bottle - it's impossible to get the last of the product out. Plus it makes my hair look glittery, which is either something you'll like or not - personally, it isn't something I like in my hair. But, given the amazing texture it gives, I will repurchase.
