Foundations -Revlon - Custom Creations Foundation [DISCONTINUED]

I really, really like this product in medium 050. I have always had really bad luck with foundations because I have combination skin, but this product evens out all the imperfections and makes me look natural rather than chalky or dark. Plus it has the added bonus of adjustment so I only have one foundation all year long rather than multiple foundations based on the seasons.
Little dab will do you to keep the hangnails away and my cuticles soft and supple. Very light and absorbs easily without any greasiness on your hands.
Treatments -Sally Hansen - Vitamin E Moisturizing Nail & Cuticle Oil

I have tried to use this product twice and both times I got the same results. It does not work for me for a couple of reasons. First, when I apply it to my cuticles and nails it doesn't soften my cuticles or moisturizes them, in reality, them seem to get drier. Second, when I apply it over polish, my polish cracks and flakes off, so there is definitely a drying effect with this product. I have better results with Sally Hansen Hand and Cuticle Cream and Sally Hansen Healthy Cuticles Now! cuticle cream. Both products moisturize my cuticles and help them to grow healthy and fast.

O.k. product for my hands and cuticles, but somewhat greasy and peculiar smelling. A vast improvement compared to the Sally Hansen Salon Hand Care Fast-Absorbing Hand and Cuticle Creme. I would only buy if I could not find Curel Hand and Cuticle lotion.

I love this lotion!!!! It is non-greasy and super absorbent. My nails grow exponentially when I use it. Cuticles are smooth and supple with no hangnails whatsoever. The only negative is that Curel does not sell the product in a larger size bottle like their other lotions so it is expensive for the amount of product you buy. Also, in my area it is very hard to find it. The only place I've been able to purchase it is at Walgreens.
A little to sheer for my taste, but I receive a lot of compliments when I wear this polish. Frosty texture.
I really like this polish, but it sheer and has to be build upon to get opaque. A very nice neutral for warm skin tones.
One of my better buys with Revlon. Another scavenger hunt to find it--finally at Ulta. Went on very easy and smooth...came out a tinge more on the gray side for my complexion, but still a eye catcher of a polish.
It just looked "blah" on my nails. First of all it was streaky, second the color didn't have any "pop". Gave it away.

I bought Hot Cocoa and I was not disappointed at all. The polish went on smooth with rich color and lasted a week with very minor chipping. Due to the expensive price ($5.99 - $7.99) in my area, I will have to wait for a BOGO 1/2 sale. The CVS where I shop, the shelving is always cleaned out of Rimmel nail polish.
Polishes -Sally Hansen - Diamond Strength No Chip Nail Color in 24 Karat

I really, really wanted to like this polish. I tried it a couple of times, but it just seemed goopy and thick. I may have gotten a bad bottle. In the bottle, it is beautiful, but on my nails in was an uncontrollable wreck.
I really, truly tried to like this polish, but but the love connection just was not there. The true color (pink) does not match the bottle (purplish). If the bottle color had been true to form, I would have loved it. It also chipped immediately after I finished applying my top coat. I received alot of compliments on the color, but I just could not like it...so I found it another home.
I love this polish. I found it by accident and I absolutely love the line. Easy application and drys fast--I'm talking lightning fast. I like using New York Color Minute when I know I need to polish my nails, but I don't feel up to the challenge of being completely still for an hour. Well, this polish cuts down the wait time to sheer minutes.
Easy application; long wearing. My only complaint is it pulled more blue gray on my skin tone, while photos I've seen of other manicures it looks more silvery gray. I've gotten great compliments while wearing this polish.
Polishes -Sally Hansen - Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear in Flirt (#38)

Search high and low for about a month before I found this at Ulta and I grabbed the last bottle. Paid a little more than others on the board cause I bought it when it was still a hot topic on the board. Just now getting around to wearing it. Love this color--matches my fall/winter wardrobe to a "T". The first coat was a little streaky, but the second coat went on smooth as glass. It chipped after the second day, but I'm hard on my nails and polish, so I won't lay the blame on the polish. Will definitely buy again.
