Tip Top Cuticle Oil ♥

Hi guys ! Hope everyone is enjoying the long weekend ! Today I'm not going to show a new colour, this weather this past week has been hectic on my poor hands, they are super dry and I even broke a nail. :(

Over this weekend , I went out to buy myself a new Tip Top cuticle oil ( Clicks was having a special on them.. 20% off ! And I needed some as the other cuticle oils wasn't even helping my poor cuticles !! Eeeck !! ) This is really the liquid gold of all the cuticle oils out there .. Its worth EVERY SINGLE CENT ! It's very oily, usually I only applied this before bedtime, but my cuticles are SO dry , I am typing with it on, and my cuticles absorbs it within seconds. Scary.. Just goes to show how dry they really are. I'm on day 3 of cuticle oil, and while I'm starting to see a small difference, I know in a few days they'll be as good as new. :) That's how great Tip Top cuticle oil works.

Honestly, everyone should have this cuticle oil in their house / handbag / bathroom .. It might be a little pricier than some other makes, but really, this is the best cuticle oil out there. Especially with winter coming .

The best cuticle oil in the world ! ♥

Tip Top : Lemon Fuel

Hi everyone ! Today I have a pretty nice colour from Tip Top to show you. I won this as a prize last year on their Facebook page, and the last time I wore this colour, got a few people that LOVED this colour. Honestly, I'm not a yellow person ( I hate the colour actually ) but this colour I do love. :) And with this gloomy cold weather, it's a nice colour pop. Excuse the short nails , hate it when a nail breaks and decided to make them all short again .

 Nail Booster Protein Base Coat (Yellow ) and 2 Coats Tip Top Lemon Fuel

Tip Top Nail Booster Protein Base Coat
As part of my prize, I also got the Nail Booster Top Coat , this one was Yellow.  This one contains Honey and Vitamin E. Fantastic Base Coat . And it does help your nails grow faster. The colour might look very yellow in this base coat, but it does dry clear with a light yellowish tint.

Sorbet : Firming Hand and Body Age Control Lotion

Hi guys. Hope everyone is having a relaxing weekend so far ! I bought this lotion a few weeks ago, and since then have been majorly impressed. The lotion is not too creamy and oily, so you can easily put it on and continue working on your laptop or do whatever you were busy doing.

And it smells stunning ! And the best part - The firming and age control in the lotion. A lot of people tend to forget about their hands, and only use firming creams on their faces etc.. But your hands age just as fast, if not faster. This lotion is perfect for that . :)

I use mine before bed too, and put on a extra layer and some cotton gloves to keep in the moisture before bedtime. The perfect weekly treat for tired and dry hands.

The range also includes a Firming body lotion, a hand and nail cream, firming body wash , firming foam bath and then the product I'm using of THIS range - The Firming Hand and Body Lotion. The Firming hand cream is really nice too, I just prefer lotions during the day, as I don't want to be stuck with some greasy hands doing paperwork.

The range isn't too bad on your pocket too.. I bought the lotion at Clicks for R39,99 , and the bottle isn't even halve way through yet .

China Glaze : Ghoulish Glow

China Glaze Halloween Collection
L-R : Its Alive , Ghoulish Glow , Black Mesh and China Glaze Fast Forward Top Coat

I bought this awesome set a while ago .. mostly for the fact that I couldn't get the Ghoulish Glow on its own, and I SO badly wanted to try this novelty polish... Whats not to love about a polish that glows in the dark ??

2 Coats Tip Top Fairy Dust, 1 Ghoulish Glow  and 2 coats China Glaze Fast Forward
Firstly, I still had on the Tip Top Fairy Dust, this Top Coat didn't alter the colour at all (as you can see ).. It might look yellowish in the bottle, but the purple stayed the same. I did apply 2 coats of China Glaze Fast Forward over the Ghoulish Glow, as the Ghoulish Glow makes it look a little matte.

1 Coat Ghoulish Glow, and 2 Coats China Glaze Fast Forward at night time. :)
 So the results are in , a GREAT glow in the dark polish. Was worried with applying the extra top coats, it won't work, but it worked great . :)  The best part was playing with the flashlight and waiting for nighttime to see the glow.. Its so cool ! Even last night , before bedtime , I was turning of the light , and realised my nails are still glowing. Its so cool, and will be perfect for Halloween.

Tip Top : Fairy Dust

Hi everyone ! Thank goodness its almost weekend ! Today, I'm showing off one of my favourite Tip Top polishes : Fairy Dust. Its a light creme purple and looks so sweet and innocent.. Really a stunning colour . :) I bought this colour last year, and the last time I had it on, I used a matte topcoat ( Tip Top Matt-nificint) and it stayed without any chips for 2 WEEKS !!

2 Coats Tip Top Fairy Dust with Seche Vite Top Coat

This really is one of my favourite colours in the creme collection . :) It's such a girly colour, whats not to love about it.

I bought this colour a while back, and its been stashed in my collection. Its such a bright awesome looking metallic gold colour ! And the name is quite appropriate too..

China Glaze : Naughty and Nice

So the first China Glaze colour I tried out was the Christmas combo one : Naughty and Nice. Such a strange colour to be honest. Its suposed to be more reddsh.. But it turned out REALLY really dark on me .. Perhaps it was the Matte topcoat, but even before that , it was really dark . Still.. It was an awsome colour to have on ...

2 Coats China Glaze Naughty and Nice and China Glaze Matte Magic topcoat

I had to take a photo of it with my cuticle oil bottle in hand, as the actaul colour in the bottle made my hand look ghostly .. Eeeckkk....

It was really easy to apply the colour , which for such a dark colour is really awsome. Usaully you need tons of coats to get it even .. this only took two..

Actual bottle : China Glaze Naughty and Nice

However.. This colour had its downside... I have to say, to date this was seriously the HARDEST colour to get off. I really struggled to get this polish off my nails... Was so relieved when it was finally off.. It comes of in layers... This was one place where I saw the colour was supposed to be a deep red... Luckily it didn't stain at all.. But was a big mess to get off..

Loving my new goodies !!

First off, I have to say, after reading other nail sites, I had to try the China Glaze for myself !  Here are some of my first goodies I'm trying out...

First off , was one of the Christmas sets of China Glaze. Bought this super cool set. It contains Naughty and Nice ( the colour will be my first feature colour too, although I'm still a little two minded if the colour is actaully more red or purple - the website classifies it as a deep red.. I found it more purple-ish  ... ) , Peppermint Cuticle Oil, and Mrs Claus... It looks like such an awsome colour ....

Next one was another set they had on special. It contains Evening Seduction and Inner Beauty .. Such pretty colours !

Then my NEW favourite product.. China Glaze Orange Cuticle oil.. It smells devine ! It doesn't even make your cuticles too oily.. Though I would recommend applying in the evening before bedtime, as oily stains on everything isn't cool ! So far I'm really L.O.V.I.N.G this cuticle oil.. Smells like summer when you apply it.. My cuticles started getting really dry with the change of season, and so far this is working FANTASTIC !

Hopefully I'll add more to my collection soon .. :)

Until next time..
