Love the smell of this so much (since sniffing it out on a guy friend of mine) that I bought a bottle of my own. This scent is - IMHO - more unisex than just masculine. It's dual "nature" - strong yet also soft - is what appeals yo me. Definitely a night time scent for those seductive intentions of either gender.

This is a nice dark grayish lavender. Looks lovely on my golden olive skin tone, regardless if my nails are short or longer. Makes a lovely fall or winter mani and pedi.

I was looking for a good hand, nail, and cuticle ad well as a (separate) foot lotion/cream, this past winter. My hands, feet and nails were extremely dry and cracked....

The SA at Sally's BS pointed me to the Hookfmaker Hand and Nail Therapy lotion..... but I wasn't too happy about the funky scent. (It reminded me too much of citronella - a mosquito repellent …

The SA at Sally's BS pointed me to the Hookfmaker Hand and Nail Therapy lotion..... They even offered a $1 off coupon, so I went ahead and bought a tube.


First off, the tube cap is a pain …

This is a pretty good ALCOHOL-FREE toner. It helps remove excess oil and refreshens my skin, without overdrying.


It's pretty gentle to my sensitive skin. (I have a minor case of rosacea - thanks Dad!) A few sprays on a paper towel and I'm good.


I'm not crazy about the bottle or the flip cap.... but I was able to change the cap for a sprayer top …

This is such a gorgeous sheer polish!!! On my nails, it's even better than what I had suspected from looking at the product in the bottle; a very lovely alternative to a typical (and boooooooring) french mani. (Check my profile for pics. I had trouble uploading them directly to this page.)


First off, I'm a bit surprised that other reviewers here had trouble seeing the …

I found this polish in the clearance bin, at my local BS.


I typically don't gravitate towards very bright colors - especially pinks, since I have a golden olive complexion and am a touch over "fooooooorty" such colors are just a bit too much for my taste.... but, since it was on clearance for $2, I thought " what the heck." I'm glad to did, since - …

I found this lovely shade of OPI polish in the clearance bin of my local BS. (OMG, it was only $2. I'll have to hurry back to the store to get a back-up bottle or two!!!)


It's a very flattering and (probably) universal sheer beige with a very tiny touch of pink. On me, this looks awesomely YNBB with a satin-gloss finish. (I don't know if that makes sense to any of …

What a lovely pale pink, glossy np - slightly darker than Ballet Slippers.


One coat gives me a nude glossy look. Two coats gives my nails a glossy pale pink/nude look. To avoid any streaking, I apply this over a good base coat - like Essie's Sensitive.


With a coat of Essie's Waltz or Marshmallow on the tip, this makes a great french mani.

I was initially surprised at the low score for this beautiful np. Then, I realized that some reviewers did/do not understand that Ballet Slippers is a SHEER np that is NOT supposed to be OPAQUE!


As a sheer/french polish, this is lovely. With a good base coat - like Essie's Sensitive - and a light hand, this goes on without any streaking. I've worn it with one or two …
