Treatments - Sally Hansen - Instant Cuticle Remover

Must-have product. Has whipped my cuticles into shape after only two uses. I do one nail at a time (it doesn't take that long, I promise). I apply a thin line along my cuticle, wait only 15 seconds, then start pushing back and running the manicure stick along the cuticle. It removes all the dead skin and softens the rest so that I can push it back. I then wipe my nail with a wet wipe, and …Read more

This is a terrific product. I've bought many tubs over the years, always coming back to it, and I can never understand why I strayed! This is how I use it. Apply a dime sized amount all over my face and eyes with my fingerips. Wipe off with a cotton pad sprayed with Lush Breath of Fresh Air toner. I then use another toner-soaked pad (usually a different toner) to get rid of all traces. My …Read more

Excellent highlighter- my go to. I don't see too much gold on my skin (NW15), but it's very frosty without being white or harsh. I've hit the pan and I'll definitely replace.

This is my go-to crease colour for a dark smokey eye. It shows up black on my skin (NW15), and it blends very well. I always get complimented when I'm wearing this shadow - it can be very dramatic. As others have pointed out, it's also a super liner shade, and I also use it to fill my brows. Love!

Fantastic crease colour. This and Bobbi Brown Espresso are my go-to colours for super smokey eyes. It's very blendable and is easily layered from soft to intense. Don't be put off by the red in the pan as I can't see it at all on my skin (NW15). I also use it very regularly to fill my brows.

Top/Base Coats - Creative Nail Design - Dry & Shine

Jan/06/2009

This is a wonderful product. I bought it for £2 on eBay just because I was intrigued, but it's now firmly a part of my routine. Although it's in a polish bottle and you put it on with a brush, it's actually more of a cream. I apply OPI DS top coat and then 60 seconds later slather this on top. I then wait 10 mins (it does go a little bit duller but you'll be waiting forever …Read more

Top/Base Coats - Sally Hansen - Insta-Dri Anti-Chip Top Coat

Jan/06/2009

This is now a staple for me. It dries extremely quickly (as in I can go about my normal business after about 30 mins) and has a nice shiny finish. You do have to be very careful with the thickness of your coats though - unlike other quick dry top coats, you don't need a thick layer. If I accidentaly put on too thick a coat, I get bubbling. This is especially bad on cremes. However, its …Read more

This is my favourite concealer of all time. I use the #2 Light, and have gone through 3 tubes in about 5 years. I use it primarily for covering blemishes, and have never found anything better. It is very natural when applied with a fingertip or brush, and it blends wonderfully. I use it over foundation and it does an excellent job.

It is quite heavy for use around the eyes, but you …

This is such a wonderful colour. I have v pale porcelain skin, and it's a greyed taupe on me. I get more compliments wearing this shade than any other I own. It's great if you're looking for an unusual polish which in not an in-your-face neon or bright. It's work appropriate, but also very on-trend.

I've always said that I wouldn't buy a back up of any …

Treatments - Sally Hansen - Diamond Cuticle and Nail Creme [DISCONTINUED]

Nov/27/2008

I really like this creme. It's very thick and moisturising, and I can really feel it making a difference to my nails and cuticles as I'm massaging it in. It's immediately softening and soothing on hard/ cracked cuticles. As has been said, a little goes a very long way, and it does take a while to sink in. I find that it helps if you massage each nail for 30 seconds. Despite the …Read more
