Glisten & Glow ~ August 2022 PPU

*These products were provided for review

Hey! Can you believe it’s August already? I feel like I say this every month but damn. It just goes so fast! As usual Jill from Glisten & Glow is bringing you some fire! A reflective glitter polish and a cuticle oil/remover duo. Let’s have a look.

Poor Unfortunate Souls (You sang it too right?) is a black based jelly polish loaded with color shifting ucc flakes that shift from purple/blue/pink/red/orange/green. It has the added twinkle of purple reflective glitters. Did you know that reflective glitters are triangles? The inspiration for this polish is… you guessed it! The popular, dark, and mysterious Disney villain Ursula from the hit movie The Little Mermaid. This polish is the sh*t. Seriously, it’s just so freaking cool looking. And as a bonus it glows under black light! I’ve included a glow pic 🙂 This formula is on the thicker side but nothing that will interfere with polishing. It also dries slightly textured so you will want to swing by Jill’s shop and grab some Glitter Grabber. I used 2 coats plus Glitter Grabber, Top Coat, and Matte Top Coat for my swatches.

Also available is the Cuticle Oil and Cuticle Remover Duo in the scent Sun & Sand. Oh my gosh you guys! It’s the beach in your palms!! As I type I have already finished my cuticle remover pen. It immediately became my favorite and I used the hell out of it lol. Someone once told me they want a beach scent with no coconut! They said it was impossible to find. Well my dear, whoever you are (it’s been years) this is for you. Scent description: A tropical beach breeze of sweet orange flower, lemony citrus, fresh lavender, and powdery musk. I have no idea how that translates to beach but it does.

Glisten & Glow‘s Cuticle Remover softens and removes excess cuticle as well as eponychium skin and comes in an easy to use twist-up pen style applicator. Directions: Apply generously to the cuticle area and let sit for 60 seconds. Next, gently push back your cuticles with your favorite tool. Finally, wash hands and cuticles thoroughly with soap and water. G&G Cuticle Remover pen contains: distilled water, potassium hydroxide, coconut oil, and fragrance.

Glisten & Glow’s Cuticle Oil hydrates cuticles, nail plate, eponychium, hyponychium, and proximal nail fold. Softens and protects all of the above areas. Stimulates nail growth. Improves texture to all of the areas listed above. Increases nail flexibility, preventing breakage. Is a daily nail care maintenance. G&G Cuticle Oil pen is a custom blend of Jojoba Oil, Vitamin E oil, grapeseed oil, sweet almond
oil, sunflower oil, argan oil, castor oil, acai berry extract, tea tree oil and fragrance oil.

Poor Unfortunate Souls: $13 NO CAP

Glisten & Glow ~ October 2021 PPU/IPU

*These products were provided for review

Hello! I hope you all had a fantastic weekend! Hopefully this post will help you get through your Monday! I have for you Glisten & Glow‘s offering for this months PPU theme of Monsters & Mythical Creatures. Jill went a little out of the box with her Monster inspired polish. “A play on the “monster” theme! We spun revive the monster based on the famous Monster energy drink series of Rehab Monster – Raspberry Tea! It’s the only monster I want to revive each day!” Let’s check it out.

Revive Your Monster is a fuchsia jelly/crelly polish with various shapes and sizes of black, gun metal, light grey, and silver holo glitters. This one is packed with glitter so I highly recommend grabbing Glitter Grabber as well. Don’t worry though. It’s not chunky or hard to work with. It’s actually really nice to apply. I used 3 easy peasy coats along with Glitter Grabber to smooth it out and a glossy top coat.

My swatches came out a little bleached for some reason. This polish is actually brighter than what it shows here. I apologize for that greatly!

Also, for IPU Jill is bringing us a cuticle remover pen and an oil pen duo. The scents compliment each other perfectly too! The cuticle remover pen is scented in fresh picked apples (fresh, juicy apples picked right from the orchard). The cuticle oil is scented in caramel apple (tart, crispness of apples layered with the rich, creaminess of caramel). Glisten & Glow cuticle oil pen is a custom blend of jojoba oil, vitamin e oil, grapeseed oil, sweet almond oil, sunflower oil, argon oil, castor oil, acai berry extract, tea tree oil and fragrance oil. Glisten & Glow cuticle remover pen contains: distilled water, potassium hydroxide, coconut oil, and fragrance. Glisten & Glow‘s cuticle remover softens and removes excess cuticle as well as eponychium skin and comes in an easy to use twist up pen style applicator.

Cuticle Remover Pen Directions: Apply generously to the cuticle area and let sit for 60 seconds. Next, gently push back your cuticles with your favorite tool. Finally, wash hands and cuticles thoroughly with soap and water.

I hope you love it all. I know I do 🙂 The pen scents just scream fall! And the polish is just exquisite! Super pretty. These things will all be available from October 1st at 11am EST until October 4th at 11:59pm EST. Set your alarms!

Revive Your Monster: $12.50 per bottle NO CAP

Cuticle Pens Duo: $12 per set NO CAP

I hope you all have a great week ahead! Thanks so much for stopping by ❤

Glisten & Glow ~ Fall 2021 Cuticle Oil Pens

*These oil pens were provided for review

Hey my loves! Today is the day! It’s the release of the Autumn By The Sea collection and these fantastic smelling cuticle oils! I’m a bit behind so let’s jump right in.

Doughnuts is like you just walked in to a doughnut shop in the crisp morning with the scent of fresh, warm doughnuts rolled in cinnamon sugar. Exactly the scent. I couldn’t have described it better. Pretty sure my older daughter is stealing this one!

Blueberry Cobbler is blueberry bliss with warm notes of vanilla. I wish these were lickable. I could seriously just eat this one. So yummy.

Morning Wake Up is a hot cup of hazelnut coffee with a dash of french vanilla creamer and a dash of sweet. Yup, this one is my favorite. Is anyone really surprised here? Coffee shop scent to the max!

Fresh Picked Apples is fresh, juicy apples picked right from the orchard. Are we sure we can’t eat these??? There is nothing better than eating an apple in the orchard while picking apples and this takes me to those memories with my family<3 This one is special.

Pumpkin Spice Latte the hart of fall, pumpkin with cinnamon. I feel like this is even more of a staple here in New England. I have not had my pumpkin fix yet this season but it’s coming!

Banana Nut Bread – Mouth watering scent of freshly baked banana bread. A delicious combo of ripe bananas, roasted walnuts, warm vanilla, and a hint of cinnamon spice. This one is on the subtle side. My younger daughter has already taken this one. Banana bread is a favorite in this house so this one was awesome to have, if only for a day or two lol.

Caramel Apple is the tart crispness of apple layered with the rich, creaminess of caramel. Fair vibes for sure! I am so ashamed to say that I haven’t been to a fair in about a decade. But I do remember the amazing fair food and this would be one of them.

These oil pens will be available on August 27th at 7pm EST. Each pen will be $6.99 or you can buy all 7 for $43!Which ones will you be grabbing? Stay tuned! Jill has some fall holos coming soon as well!! Have a great weekend y’all. thanks for stopping by ❤

Glisten & Glow ~ June 2021 IPU/PPU

*These products were provided for review

Hello! How excited are we for this coming IPU/PPU?! The theme Rainbows is just a super winner. And you know someone had to come with the idea of the Rainbow Bridge. Jill brings you the best set for this theme. Let’s have a looksie!

First up is the Cuticle Remover & Cuticle Oil Pen Duo. Both products are scented in “Rainbows & Sunshine” which is a wonderful blend of fresh, clean fruity blend of orange, peach, watermelon, strawberry and cranberry. A wake me up scent of fruity fun with a touch of happy and carefree thrown in! Glisten & Glow’s Cuticle Remover softens and removes excess cuticle as well as eponychium skin and comes in an easy to use twist-up pen style applicator. Directions: Apply generously to the cuticle area and let sit for 60 seconds. Next, gently push back
with your favorite tool. Finally, wash hands and cuticles thoroughly with soap and water.
Glisten & Glow Cuticle Remover Pen contains: distilled water, potassium hydroxide, coconut oil and fragrance. Glisten & Glow Cuticle Oil Pen is a custom blend of Jojoba Oil, Vitamin E oil, grapeseed oil, sweet almond oil, sunflower oil, argan oil, castor oil, acai berry extract, tea tree oil and fragrance oil.

Rainbow Bridge is a medium purple creme polish packed with rainbow flakes. Inspiration: Based on the Rainbow Bridge Poem: In loving memory of all the amazing
and loved pets that we all have lost over the years. May their lives on the other side be
filled with comfort and wellness. We love and miss them so very much. This is one of my favorite G&G‘s ever. I just really love this one. The formula was such perfection and the flakies were abundant but not enough to mess with polishing. The formula is self leveling but I still suggest you use Glitter Grabber for such a flakie dense polish. I used 2 perfect coats for my swatches. Also, I had a pet pass not too long ago so that is the picture you will see below. ❤

You absolutely have to have it right?!?! Polish Pickup will be open for June 4th at 11am EST – June 7th at 11:59pm EST. Do not miss it! Rainbow Bridge will be $12.50 for each bottle with no cap! The cuticle oil & remover will be $12 per set and there is also no cap! Hug your pets extra close today for me! I hope you all have a great week! Thanks for stopping by ❤

Battle Of The Boy Bands Box 2.0

*Provided for review
Today is Monday and I am here to help you with that. In just a few days the Battle Of The Boy Bands Box 2.0 will be available for you to pre-order. This box, brought to you by Wildflower Lacquer and Nailed It!, contains 2 shifty, flakie polishes; a wax melt; and a cuticle oil. Let’s dive right in.
First up is the sweetest wax melt. Fan Girl wax melt is the aroma of cotton candy with notes of strawberry, and raspberry rounded out with vanilla. When I first read the description of the scent, I got one track minded and thought everything was strawberry scented. It’s a little ridiculous since it isn’t even the first scent listed. Even better, the oil has no strawberry scent! I was just so excited because strawberry is my favorite scent lol. Anyways, the scent is freaking delicious. Like a carnival scent minus the fried food. Just all the sweets. This is my favorite type of smell for me as well. This is a large wax and can be cut in 2 if you want to split it. 
Shimmer in the wax
Next is the cuticle oil. Back to the 90’s cuticle oil is scented in a juicy blend of candied watermelon and sugary cotton candy. Totally a jolly rancher on your fingers. I love this so very much. The oil itself lingers on your fingers, continuing to do it’s job without feeling greasy. It’s actually more silky. Liquid silk that smells like candy. COUNT. ME. IN!!!
The first polish is Nailed It! Rock Your Body. Rock Your Body is a purple base with a shifty blue to violet pigment, crystal chameleon flakies, silver flakies, and a subtle linear with scattered holo. This is an ideal polish. Purple base, flakies, shifty, holo. This polish applies very smoothly. You could use 2 coats but I used 3 thin coats for my swatches.

Lastly (only because it has the most pics!) is Dirty Pop. Dirty Pop is a gray base with subtle red to orange to gold to green shift, UCC flakies that shift from copper to green to pink, and scattered crystal flakies. This one is so good. It’s versatile and perfect for layering. I layered it over black and grey.  The description says it’s a subtle shift but it’s really not 😍 This one is sheer so I suggest using it as a topper. I used 3 coats by itself and 1 coat over black and grey. Again, I opted for hand drawn nail art and I blew it. Don’t feel bad about laughing because I certainly cringe at it.

The price for these products is really good so run fast and get one of those first 6 boxes!  Have a great week all ❤

Glisten & Glow ~ Breast Cancer Awareness Charity Polishes + Cuticle Oil Pen

*Provided for review



Hey guys 🙂 I am SO happy to be sharing this with you today! Breast Cancer Awareness is a cause I believe very strongly in. I have donated time and money when I can. But guess what? I have never personally known anyone who has had to deal with this. It seems crazy but it’s true. I honestly just believe that because I am a woman, my mom is a woman, my daughters are women, etc; we should all be supporting the cause. It is mostly a female issue so why not support something that can happen to anyone you love! Here is another thing you may or may not know: At the end of July, Jill’s mom Anne was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer that had spread to the lymph nodes.  The cancer was found at her yearly mammogram. They remain positive and hopeful for a cancer free future for her. Her form of breast cancer is aggressive and over the next year she will be receiving chemo, have surgery, and radiation. Fortunately, financially it will all be possible for her but for many women it is not. Jill and Anne created this collection to raise awareness of early detection, breast cancer in general, and to help women during this difficult time. 100% of the profits* from the sale of this collection will be donated to the Cancer Center in CT where she is receiving treatment and the donation will be earmarked for women who need financial assistance for treatments. We will be sharing the specific Cancer Center closer to launch and the donation will be publicly shown when the sale is completed. (*Profits are calculated less the cost of the ingredients to make the product, shipping and PayPal fees and promo discount codes.) I can only hope to do these babies justice for the both of them ❤ Let’s go!

Pink Is Stronger Than You Think is a light pink crème polish packed with pink and copper shimmer with a light dusting of holo. This one was a little streaky on the first coat. It totally covered on the second coat. This polish is super pretty and dainty, but for me it wasn’t the best G&G polish I have used formula wise. I’m sure a little thinner would fix it right up! I used 2 coats plus Glisten & Glow glossy and matte top coats for my swatches. Art was done using The Breast Is Yet To Come for the dry brushing and stamping, and Born Pretty stamping plate BP-26.

Big Or Small, Save Them All is a medium pink crelly polish packed with blue, purple, and pink ucc flakies and a light dusting of holo. I ADORE this one! The formula is freaking fantastic ❤ This is my ultimate polish I think. Seriously wouldn’t change a thing! I used 3 thin coats plus G&G glossy and matte top coats for my swatch. For the art I used G&G Mother Fire and a black polish for the stamping and Born Pretty stamping plate BP-26.

The Breast Is Yet To Come is a dark pink/magenta sparkly shimmer. This one is almost foil like but not as foily. Know what I mean lol?! Absolutely perfect for the season and upcoming holidays. The formula was wonderful and went on smoothly in 2 coats. I used 2 coats and G&G glossy and matte top coats for my swatch. For the art I used Pink Is Stronger Than You Think and I hand painted the design using The Breast Is Yet To Come. I never said I was an artist lol. I am left handed, swatching on my left hand and doing art with my right hand…  This is why I stamp all the time!

Lets not forget the cuticle oil! This is Fight Strong! and it smells divine ❤ The oil is scented with a fruity blend of passion fruit and guava with top notes of pink pepper and berry. Y’ALL… You need this as much as you need air to live. Let’s move on to how you get this amazingness!

This trio of polish, along with the cuticle oil, will be available on October 7th 2018 at 7pm EST. The 4 piece collection (3 polishes + 1 pen) will be $32 USD. Individual polishes will be $10.50 USD each. The cuticle oil pen alone will be $6.99 USD. If you buy the whole collection you end up getting the oil for $.49 USD. That is an amazing deal!! If you are going to get any BCA polish at all, get these. It’s just a great donation to an important cause for someone very close to home for the brand ❤ ❤ ❤ I hope you enjoyed the novel lol!

Glisten & Glow: Glorious Glistenettes ~ Oceanic Overture

*Provided for review

*Very picture heavy

Guys! I have some of the prettiest polish you have ever seen!! Jill has made more of her Glorious Glistenettes ❤ The Oceanic Overture Collection is going to be a 3 part series. Pay close attention to release dates because these are all going to be one batch then done! I have part 1 for you today and some cuticle oils! This will be a long post picture wise so I’ll cut the chit chat.

First up is Sea Turtle Sonata. This polish is a mega holo with purple/blue/green/teal holo ucc flakes and teal and blue shimmers. I used 3 coats with glossy and matte top coat (all G&G) for my swatches.

Dolphin Duet is also a mega holo base with bronze/red/gold/pink/purple holo ucc flakes and it’s loaded with pink/red shifting shimmer. My swatch shows 3 coats with glossy and matte top coats.

Last is Beluga Blues. Ugh so pretty. It’s a super holo polish with pink/red/gold/green holo ucc flakes, blue micro flakes and violet shimmer. My swatches show 3 coats with glossy and matte top coats.

Here is what I think: These are freaking fantastic! I do think that the shimmer is a little lost in the intense holo. When you matte it, it really comes out. The formula is as expected for Glisten & Glow, super smooth and easy to work with. These actually dry pretty fast too!


There will also be 3 new and 2 re-released cuticle oil scents. These will be in the new twist style! I am excited about this. Every time I put the cap on my pen click ones I would click it by accident lol!! This will stop that from happening 🙂 The 2 re-released scents are Summer Sorbet (a blend of orange, peach, watermelon, tangerine, and a touch of strawberry), and Nectars Of The Caribbean (Island fun blended with sweet fruit nectars). NOTC is my favorite of all and its so peachy/tangeriney ❤ Totally in love! Summer Sorbet is a subtle fruit salad. Not overpowering but very long lasting! The new scents are Pineapple Whipped Dream (juicy fresh cut pineapple with a touch of whipped cream), Papaya Mango Madness (tropical sweet mangos and papayas), and Seashore (clean scent of waves, air, and sun of a summer day by the seashore). The Pineapple Whipped Dream is neat. You can totally smell the pineapple and you can totally smell the whipped cream. But they also blend soooooo good ❤ Papaya Mango Madness is nice but not my cup of tea. I love mangos but I do not like papaya :/ My mother in law loves it so she has been using it ❤ Seashore smells exactly like a seashore. That’s all I can say about it because the description is just spot on.

Now for the details. The Oceanic Overture Collection part 1, as well as the 5 cuticle oils, will be available on August 10th at 7pm EST. The polishes will be $11 USD each or $30 USD for the set. The cuticle oils will be $6.99 USD each. From August 10th – September 10th 2018, cuticle oils are the product of the month and will only be $4 USD each!! Stock up 🙂 I think that’s it! What was your favorite polish? Favorite cuticle oil scent? As always the links are below 🙂 Have a great night<3

Glisten & Glow ~ Hand + Nail Nutrition

                                                                     *Provided for review

Good morning!! Just when I thought I had found my holy grail skin ritual, I get a message from Jill.  I was super excited to be chosen from so many talented, beautiful ladies in the nail community. I was also freaking out a little because I love her stuff! I have used Glisten & Glow top coat for years. It is basically the only top coat I use unless I say otherwise. It just CANNOT be beat. I have also used other products from G&G that have always been amazing. This new Hand + Nail Nutrition is no different. 
Hand + Nail Nutrition is one of those amazing “you have to try for yourself” products. It is unlike anything I have tried before. The formula is very thin. It only takes a tiny bit for both hands to be fully covered. H+NN is super packed with wonderful ingredients that deeply hydrate and protect your skin. I don’t drink nearly enough water and usually it shows. With this, my hands looked fresh and totally quenched. It actually helped smooth my nails a little. I have some crazy bumps and ridges and this seems to have evened that out a little. See for yourself…

Keep in mind that this was Thanksgiving weekend as well, I did so much cooking and so many dishes. I didn’t change a thing in my normal daily schedule. I also swatched and used acetone like crazy! H+NN works even better when paired with the G&G cuticle oil. I would use the H+NN first and let it soak in for maybe a minute or two. I then added a good coating of the cuticle oil and rubbed that in. I did this 3-5 times a day when I had a free few minutes, not until bed on Thanksgiving. So now that you have seen the proof, lets get to the deets!
The Hand + Nail Nutrition is available now HERE. There are 2 sizes and 2 scents. The sizes are .5 oz. for $6.50 and 2 oz. for $14.00. The scents offered are Unscented and their signature scent, Sangria White Peach. I will leave an ingredients list below for anyone who cares to check it out!! So what are you waiting for? I treat my hands awfully and they look great right now because of this miracle in a jar! Go give it a try and come back and tell me what you think!! Have a great day friendos!!
**Ingredients: water, vitamin e oil, jojoba oil, aloe barbadenis, rosehip oil, vitamin a, kelp extract, neem oil, vegetable glycerin, castor oil, wheat germ oil, keratin complex, panthenol, oat protein, coconut oil, beeswax, steric acid, emulsifying wax, SDC, MSM, citric acid, potassium, and fragrance (or not).

Lilly Anne’s Garden Autumn 2017 Box Featuring Vinailicious

                                                                           *Provided for review.

          Aaahhhhhh… The first taste of fall. Well, not literally taste but close enough lol. Are you ready for fall/autumn? I most certainly am. I do not tolerate heat very well. Even though I am only in CT, my body totally rejects heat. Totally miserable without an air conditioner. So fall, yes. You are so very welcome to stop by! Please feel free to bring Lilly Anne’s Garden Autumn 2017 Box, hoodies, bon fires, pumpkin everything AND apple everything! Do you have a favorite? I’m guessing PS will win here lol! I am 50/50. I just love to bake 🙂 Make sure you read to the bottom for a bonus!!!  Hope you are ready to drool!!!

          Think I will go in order of my daily use so let’s start with the scrub. You will receive a 2oz. jar of a SUGAR scrub in the scent Autumn Rain. Brand Scent description: “It’s a crisp autumn day and the rain has just begun to fall. The fresh, dewy, cool autumn air carries the scent of dried leaves and hay bales from the farm next door as well as amber and fresh cut wood from the wood pile across the yard. Fallen leaves, hay bales, fresh stacked wood, cool autumn air. A fresh, invigorating, strong scent that is true to it’s name.” My description: You’re in an open field early in the morning. Before the sun is out, but it is still light. Dewy grass under your bare feet. Close your eyes and take a deep breath through your nose. That’s the scent you get when you use it. Now imagine you are in the same place as before but now it has just stopped raining. Close your eyes and take another deep breath through your nose. This is the scent that is left behind as you dry off your hands after the scrub. It’s magic. there are before and after scents. Just like before and after rain. It’s got the leafy wood smell in there subtly as well. Perfectly autumn. I use less than a teaspoon and it is plenty. Using sugar instead of salts is less drying for your hands and actually attracts moisture. The oils in this are wonderful. Leaves your hands smelling very clean, fresh, and soft.

          After I let that sit for about 5 minutes, I use some Apple Harvest Festival lotion. This is a very thick heavy lotion, perfect for the drier months to come. It comes in a 2oz. bottle and it only takes a blueberry sized dab to do it’s job. Once the warmth from your skin softens it all up it soaks in and leaves your hands incredibly silky. Brand Scent Description: “Notes of sweet slow-cooked apples with mulled berries and citrus rind provide a bright top note leading to a warm blend of star-anise, cinnamon sticks, and cloves for middle notes, and a succulent caramelized brown sugar rounding out the base. Candied, baked, dumplings or turnovers, all the great smells of the local apple festival.” My description: Exactly that lol! It reminds me of when I am baking apple fritter bread. Fresh from the oven, using a pot holder to fan the luscious steam into my face. Oh so yummy!

          Immediately after I lotion up, I use the oil. I let them soak in together. The Pumpkin Bread oil is my favorite thing in this box I think. I used this last night at my birthday dinner. My mother in law saw me and asked to sniff. I handed her the bottle and she took a large whiff. She then put it right on her wrist like a perfume so she could continue to sniff it lol! It really is a homey, delicious, take you right to Thanksgiving dessert type scent. The oil itself is marvelous. It comes in a 5ML roller ball bottle. I will say, I don’t care for the roller ball application. I feel like so much comes out. I prefer the click pen with the brush. This is purely my opinion though. and I have solved my over use by using a clean up brush. I swipe some oil off the ball with the brush to apply it. Less oil used and a bit more precise. For me anyways. Here is the Brand Scent Description: ” This one is fresh baked and right out of the oven. Makes your mouth water while it fills your home with the scent of fresh baked pumpkin bread. Catch the smell of pumpkin pie spice with just the right amount of baked crust. A must have fragrance for fall.” My description: I agree. The best part is, that as the scent fades, it leaves just the cinnamon smell behind. This really smells exactly like a fresh baked pumpkin bread!

          Lastly, after all the oil is soaked in, maybe 20 minutes or so, I apply the Blackberry Scone cuticle balm. You will get a 10G jar of the balm. This balm is a harder balm. I prefer that. It is less messy and allows you to start with a small amount then add if you need to. Waste not, ya know?! To me, balm is a sealer. It’s the top layer that hold all the moisture from the other products in. I could be wrong but whatever lol. Now for the Brand Scent Description: “Notes of freshly picked blackberries are complimented by hints of boysenberries & raspberries and nuances of buttery, warm crust. This scent is more fruity than bakery, so the sweetness doesn’t overpower the fruit. My description: This takes me back to Montana. Right after my husband and I got married, we won a trip to Montana for an all inclusive vacation provided by Marlboro. We have quit smoking since then (yay!!), but scents are always good for taking you back to your past. Every day we had the most amazing local food. One night we had a homemade berry ice cream and this brought me there. Super fresh berryness. So not only does this smell heavenly, it took me to a very special place as well. Totally teary right now…

          Now that your hand care is taken care of, we are prepped for an exquisite mani using Leaves Vinyls from Vinailicious! These are great for nail art and super easy to use. I will be posting my mani to my IG and FB so make sure you keep your eyes peeled.

          Are you excited yet?? If you are a fall lover, like myself, DO NOT MISS THIS! The box will be available tomorrow, September 1st 2017, for $21 USD + shipping. Since you have read so much already I will just say, links below and thanks so much for reading 🙂 Your treats are a few apple and pumpkin recipes! Enjoy!

MTL Creations ~ Honey Dew Cuticle Oil

Hi everyone!! This post has been ready for some time. I just seem to have the worst luck with any type of technology 😦 I lost the pics I had so I took the closest ones to the start and finish of my 1 week using MTLCreations Honey Dew Cuticle Oil. Thankfully my husband has been a huge help at troubleshooting and I at least have these pics lol! Until I received this oil from Cherise, I had been using Bliss Kiss Simply Pure Hydrating oil, along with random lotions/creams that were nearby. Once I started using this I used ONLY this for 1 week. Let me start by giving you an idea of how my cuticles usually are, DRY!!!! My daily fluid intake is usually 3 cups of coffee. That’s it lol. Besides that I suffer from OCD so I hand wash countless times a day. I would say that 20-25 is accurate for a calm day. That means I need a heavy duty oil!! This oil is very supple! It has a thickness to it so it didn’t drip all over the place. It absorbs really fast though so no worries there! It doesn’t soak in and disappear. It softens the skin and keeps that silky feeling for quite some time before needing to reapply.The scent that came for me was Honey Dew, a very subtle smell that is crisp and lasts. I even smelled it still after washing my hands. Barely, but it was there. This oil worked great for me. Now I use it just as much as my bliss kiss!! I would totally recommend this oil for nice soft cuticles! Cherise has awesome polish and sugar scrubs and hand crocheted items available in her shop so please go check her out and keep her in mind when thinking about holiday shopping!!! She has thermals coming out that look super amazing!! Stay tuned 🙂       Day 1:
