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:
Hey ladies! How’s it going this Tuesday night? Hopefully good since it was really warm today! I live in CT so around here it was nice lol! Anyway, I got more polish to swatch from Cherise, owner and creator of My True Love Creations!! Sometimes she throws in a full sized polish which is super sweet to do considering its sent for swatching. 🙂 She also sent a cuticle oil which I will be reviewing in another post after I use it a few more days! I even got my husband involved haha!! Check back to see how… On to the polish!!! I usually don’t do this but I will be giving a review of all the polishes then I’ll post the pics. I am doing it this way because besides the color, the polishes were all pretty much the same. The names of the polishes are Once In a Blue Moon, Apple Crush, and Foresta Lumina. There was also a gold glitter topper called Star Dust. The first 3 polishes are all holographic jellies!! I used 3 thin coats for each swatch and no topcoat. The formula, for jelly polish, was pretty smooth. The first coat is always a little tricky, but it built up and evened out beautifully by the third coat! The polish is full of scattered holo. What I really loved about it was that it wasn’t a super strong holo effect. In my opinion, the strong holo rainbow sometimes takes away from the color of the base polish. Now the glitter. This is something everyone should own!! It’s tiny glitters so it looks very feminine over anything! It could totally be built up if layered thinly or applied with a makeup sponge. I just love this so much! I’m sure you have heard me say before that I’m not a huge fan of glitter. This is my kind of glitter! I could wear this often. It’s not chunky and/or blingy. Here, I wore it over Loyal Made by Pure Nail Lacquer. Perfection 🙂 Lets check these babies out!!!
Once In a Blue Moon
Hello everyone!! Are we all ready for the holiday weekend?!?! I know I am because my birthday is Monday and my husband has a full day of surprises for me!! I usually don’t like surprises but I am so ready for this one!! I will make sure to keep you posted since I still have 2 polishes from Black Dahlia Lacquer to review! Today I have for you a new collection from My True Love! Well, more like the second half of her True Blood collection. I am sure you already can imagine how this will go… Cherise kills it again with 6 new amazing polishes. And she just had her 4th child!! Talk about an ambitious woman!! Since I will be getting all 6 in this post it will be full of pictures, but I will do my best to keep the rest (starting now lol) as short as possible. First up, we have Eric. An iridescent glitter topper with a very slight touch of holo dust and micro, small, and medium red holo hexes. I swatched one smooth coat over black and an ivory color because this also has a green shimmer that is really hard to capture. I tried!!
Hey ladies!! I hope everyone is having better weather than I have had lately. Because of that let me apologize for the lighting and picture quality. I did my best to have these ready asap but I had no sun to work with :(. So here is what I have for you for now and stick around because I think I want to redo these. Last time I did swatches of My True Love polish I couldn’t get over how awesome they were! These polishes are no different!! I absolutely love them 🙂 The six polishes I swatched matched each other so well. I ended up pairing them all together. Lets check it out!! This is a macro of Sam in its warm state with one coat of Andy. I matted my pointer for these pics because its just easier to see the glitters without the shine!! Sam is a thermal polish full of holographic dust that in its warm state is the perfect sour apple green. When cold it turns to a dark teal. Such a great transition 🙂 I used 3 coats to make it a solid color. Andy is a glitter topper in a clear base with micro metallic blue glitter, small translucent blue hexes and medium black hexes. One coat was all I needed and no fishing required 🙂
Hey ladies!! Long time, no type! I have had lots going on and I just took too much on for Easter. But I am back and SUPER excited to post this! I received 3 polishes to swatch and check out from Cherise Kane. Owner of MyTrueLoveMTL indie nail polish. In an email she sent me she said they may not be as good as other indies because she is new to the game. WELL, if this is what she does as a newbie I will stick around!! I already have gone over an order of about 5 bottles with my husband. The formula on all 3 polishes was amazing. so smooth 🙂 It could pretty much apply itself! Dry time is great! I had no issues at all with coverage or anything. I feel that I could not say enough about Cherise’s Line!! PLEASE do yourself a favor and follow her on IG (@mtlmytruelove) and buy her polish!!! You wont regret it!! here are a ton of pics of the 3 polishes I swatched.
This is a macro of Cosmic Girl. its a black jelly-ish polish with pink hex glitters and tons of holo dust! when I first saw this it was dark and I didn’t see the holo. as soon as I sat at my desk to swatch I saw it under my lamp and was soooo excited. I love it so much and I haven’t seen anything like it before!
