Top/Base Coats - FingerPaints - Smooth Over Ridge Filler

1.0
Created with Sketch.

28 days ago

I have slightly ridged nails, and sticky base is not an option for me (it's like crazy glue for me) so I like ridge filling base coat. A friend recommended this to me, and I bought it at Sally Beauty for $4.99. It has a pink tint in the bottle and that actually does show up on the nail. The brush is clear and mine is kind of crooked so application is somewhat of a challenge. It turns …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Unlisted Brand - Gloves in a Bottle Shielding Lotion

1.0
Created with Sketch.

4 months ago

After not being able to find this at WalMart, I spent way too much for it on eBay--$17.49 for an 8 ounce bottle. Yikes! Pricey, but if it worked, I would have been happy. The hand cream that is my HG--Derma Topix intensive hand cream, is much more expensive and each tube is only 3 ounces (though it is a cream). This is a lotion, and it takes a lot of rubbing to get it to soak in. I wash my …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Drunk Elephant - T.L.C. SUKARI BABYFACIAL

I really like this mask. The only caution I might give is keep very close track of the time and don't go over 20 minutes! I made that mistake once, and I broke out. And I never break out. Also, definitely use a pretty emollient face cream or oil afterwards to combat potential dryness. Overall, I'm very impressed. I didn't give it 5 starts because it's expensive and …Read more

Toners - Bobbi Brown - Hydrating Face Tonic

This review is more 2.5 stars. This toner retails for $34 for 6.7 oz. The fragrance is not particularly good (not unpleasant) but it is very strong. The toner leaves my skin very slightly tacky. I have sensitive skin and it did not care for this initially at all---- my skin was slightly irritated and I wound up with a few pustules. But I try not to return products anymore so I am finishing …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Nein! Nein! Nein! Ok Fine!

This is a outstanding polish. The color is about as dark a grey as you can get without being black and without looking black. Crème finish. Dried quickly and did not chip (though to be fair, I wore it 3-4 days). It took 2 easy, thin coats to become fully opaque. The consistency was perfect--not too thin or too thick. Highly recommend.

Polishes - OPI - Get in the Espresso Lane

Jul/15/2018

I was getting this polish confused with Espresso Your Style so I was perplexed by not seeing any shimmer. This is a tobacco brown crème. It is a very cool, grey-toned brown so it might not flatter warm skin tones. It applies very nicely, and was almost a one coater for me, but 2 coats was perfection, since I do thin coats. It's a very dark brown but in most lighting you can see that it …Read more

I like kittenmint's description of the color of this polish. It is a pale blue, lavender and dove grey mix. Almost a pastel but it is such a unique and beautiful color. I wasn't as successful reaching opacity, but it was mostly opaque for me in 2 coats. I didn't want to chance a 3rd coat because I was afraid that would be too many layers.

Colorwise, this polish reminds me a lot of Nails Inc Bamboo White, which was a very limited collaboration with Victoria Beckham. It goes for over $20 on eBay currently, which seems like a lot to me. It is a very pale pastel pink. The application was difficult. I did 3 coats, which is the maximum I will do, and it still looked streaky. It's pretty, though, and the formula is better than …Read more

Polishes - OPI - The I's Have It

Jun/29/2018

I would call this a powder blue crème. This one took 3 coats to reach full opacity with no streaks. I made sure to let each coat dry fully before applying the next coat to avoid dragging. I don't see any purple leaning here, which would make it closer to a pale blurple or periwinkle. It looks to me like It's a Boy with less white added to it, thus making it darker. Very pretty and …Read more

Polishes - Nails Inc. - Gel Effect - Regents Place

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/27/2018

I bought Regents Place in the Nailpure formula. So the color is a periwinkle crème, but the formula is supposed to be ultra gentle, 6 free and lets oxygen and water to reach the nail bed. I don't really know how I would determine if it does what it claims, but I like the color and I figured the rest of it can't hurt. Especially with my toenails, which are dry no matter what I do. I …Read more
