nail care trio

Basecoat, Topcoat, and Organic Cuticle Oil Review

The above picture was taken about a month ago and the below picture was taken today. :) I wanted to give the anil care trio a good use before writting this review:)

First off let me begin by saying that this base coat is just so beautiful! At first I was intimidated by its pink hue. Once I used it I was hooked! It's leaves a natural pink color on your nails. I'll even use it on its own when I don't want to wear polish because it leaves a pink healthy glow on my nails. Lately this is my go to base coat because it dries so quickly! Below is a picture comparing my nails with the Creamy Base Coat as well as without. My middle and pinky finger have both the Creamy Base Coat on and Organic Cuticle Oil for comparison. You can see the healthy pink shine it adds to my nails :)

Now for the organic cuticle oil  let me tell you this stuff smells amazing!! Its hard to describe the smell its sort of like strawberries but also some other fruits? Or Flowers? I'm not quite sure but it smells delicious! I use it after I apply my base coat or while doing my nail art so my cuticles will absorb it and I won't have to wait for it to dry. I use it all the time especially between swatches so my cuticles wont get dry. I have used Essie's apricot cuticle oil but I feel like that one leaves more of a dry oil? feel rather then a healthy soft feel.

The High Gloss Top Coat is just beautiful! I personally like to add 2 coats of this top coat for an even higher gloss. Although most of the time I apply just one coat.:) This top coat reminds me a lot of Sally hansens Xtreme wear top coat. High gloss Top Coat does dry a lot faster and has a higher shine to it. Below are some of the manis that I have topped with High Gloss Top Coat.:)
