Barry M has released 3 new vegan cuticle oils under the name Nail Shots! Each Nail Shot contains colourful oils that you need to shake to blend before you apply to your nails and cuticles. The 3 blends are Avocado, Grape and Argan. They say to apply before your manicure, let them soak in the wash off. Let’s see what I think…Read More »
My blog started as something for my nails and since I started incorporating makeup and bath products I’ve strayed away from its roots and I want to start bringing those nail posts back. My first step towards that is my manicure routine, which I try to do about once a week/when my nails need it. I’m not a nail technician or specialist nor do I have any nail qualifications but this is how I look after my nails! I know people will probably say I’m doing it wrong or I should do it differently but this is just the way I’ve always done it! First of all, my before picture is shameful, I let my nails get really bad because I became lazy/work is still taking it’s toll… Let’s hope the after looks okay 😉Read More »
I’ve been lusting after this product for so so long! I’ve been following @simplenailarttips on Instagram for well over a year now and the reviews that Ana posts for the Bliss Kiss™ PureNailOil™ are fantastic! I’m going to add mine to the collection.
As I may have mentioned before, I’ve always suffered from dry cuticles and I’m hunting for the perfect product to suite my needs… and… I think I may have found it! I purchased the Starter/Refill Kit, in ‘Crisp’ from nailcarehq.com (who ship internationally. YAY!) for $19.99. It came to about £15.00 in total – including shipping. There’s also a fragrance free option too. This kit includes a 2ml nail oil pen and a 15ml dropper bottle which is said to be enough to refill the pen 7 times (sorry for the poor photo! I forgot to take a proper one and to be honest I can’t be bothered to go back upstairs – oops). Oh – it also includes a mini booklet containing the instructions and how to do the 3 Day Naked Challenge!
So what do I think? I’ll let the before and after pictures tell you first!
As some of you may know I was away for 5 weeks on fieldwork for my third year dissertation, hence the state of my nails! I’d just spent everyday outside for 30 days! They were dry, splitting and were in some serious need of some TLC but as you can see from the after picture they are 100% improved – thank goodness. The 3 Day Naked Challenge involves nothing but applying Bliss Kiss™ PureNailOil™ for 3 days in row as frequently as your nails need it. It’s a simple concept and worked wonders – as you can see! I’m very impressed with this product, it really does work. My nails soaked it up a LOT for the first day. It felt like I was applying it every 5 minutes. And saying that only half the pen has been used over the 3 days which is pretty good going considering how bad my nails were. It doesn’t leave your nails or fingers feeling greasy either which is another plus.
Have I mentioned how amazing it smells too? Well.. it does. As for refilling, I haven’t tried that yet as I’ve yet to empty the pen – I’ll keep you updated on that one!
I seriously recommend this product to anyone that suffers from dry cuticles, or anyone really! I’ll now be using it as part of my daily nail care routine.
I’ll be back again later in the week for a notd/nail art 🙂
