My Current Cuticle Care Faves

Hey everyone I don't do a favorite things post, like a lot of bloggers and vloggers, but I thought I'd let you know the products I've been using on my cuticles to help maintain and moisturize them. For some reason, I have been hearing that I have nice cuticles. This surprises me because I have such dry skin and I don't think too highly of my cuticles, but who am I to argue :-). I'll take the compliment and also share what I've been using on them recently.

Essie Rcessionista -NOTD

Today, I have a quick NOTD post. Essie Recessionista is a beautiful plum color that is perfect for the fall. It is from the Fall Collection: Stylenomics. Recessionista has an okay formula. It did pool at the cuticles, slightly, but it wasn't too bad. I love this polish.

SoFlaJo Ice Dancer review and swatches

SoFlaJo is releasing a Winter Collection called Party Time Collection. There are seven polishes in this collection. I was sent Ice Dancer to review for you. Ice Dancer is a blue shimmer polish with brown, silver and micro holographic glitter. I fell in love with this polish. The base of this polish seems to be a jelly consistency.

Per Jody from SoFlaJo:
"Ice Dancer – I love the sparkle and glitz of the costumes and the fancy footwork of Ice Dancers. When designing this holographic glitter mix of blues, silvers and browns in a blue base, I wanted a “topper” that could be worn alone with opacity in 2-3 coats or dress up favorite undies with its shimmer."

China Glaze Holidays Collection 2012

The Holiday Joy Collection:

l to r: Red Satin, Winter Holly, Cranberry 
Splash and Glitter All the Way

Red Satin is a dark red creme, that seems to be perfect for Christmas. The formula is a tad thin and it pooled slightly at the cuticles, but this doesn't take anything away from it's beauty. This is definitely a great Fall into Winter red! Red Satin is a two coater, but make sure to allow ample time between coats or you'll have bald spots. Red Satin is very shiny without a top coat!

NOTD: Nail Of The Day

Today, I'm just going to post a quick NOTD (nail of the day.) As you guys know, I'm not a gold nail polish fan. Well, I don't like gold on my nails due to my skin color. It tends to match too much or seems a little weird to me. However, recently I reviewed 365 Days Of Color Gimme Some Bubbly and I fell in love with it (here).

365 Day Of Color Christmas Collection

Sunny from 365 Days of Color does it again. Sunny seems to come up with unique designs for her collections and then top them off with something special. This time, for her Christmas Collection, Sunny introduces scented polishes into her store. She has three polishes in this collection: Trimming the Tree, Santa Baby and Gimme Some Bubbly.

Note: If you are sensitive to scents, I would suggests not buying scented polishes.

So, let's get into the review, shall we?
