REVIEW: NUBAR Scented Cuticle Oil

Happy Holidays everyone!

Hope this review finds you doing well and enjoying time with your friends and families.

Here is a review of NUBAR's cuticle oil.  I purchased it quite some time ago at Winners here in Canada.  Other than shopping online i'm not sure where else to find NUBAR products in Canada.  If you know of a retailer who sells NUBAR products please leave a comment below.  I'd love to try out more products from this company if only i could see them in person before purchasing.

Feels like Warm Holiday Craftiness

I'm not the most crafty person in the world, but I definitely do enjoy hands-on activities that allow me to be a bit creative.

I found this Yarn Wreath how-to on a blog ( I think it may have been featured on I'm not sure)  But I had to re-create it.
Check out the images below and if you want the full how-to tutorial, check it out on my Cut Out + Keep projects page

Hope Everyone's having a Great Holiday season so far!

NOTD: Done Out in Audrey

OMG.  I finally got my hands on the famous China Glaze nail polish: For Audrey!
It's as pretty as expected!

I gave it a shot with a konad stamp M57.
It showed up quite faint, but not too bad considering it was a medium toned polish being stamped on another medium toned polish.
I'll have to give it another shot with a regular manicure

Base color is OPI's Done Out In Deco.  China Glaze's For Audrey is
stamped on using Konad's M57 mesh image plate.
Why do my fingers always look so dry, or squishy or old in photos?  argh!  :@  lol..  note to self: moisturize hands before photographing my next manicure.

NOTD: Melon of Treasure

Teehee.  I like to think that my NOTD titles are kind of clever mash-ups of the polishes I used for each manicure.  I'm sure they could be more unique, but whatevs.  This is me.  :D

This NOTD is one from about a month ago.

I think it's GORGEOUS!

The base color is OPI's Melon of Troy.  And of course the top layer is
the famous Sally Hansen's Hidden Treasure.  I think the flakes in
HT complement MOT beautifully!
Maybe not the most seasonal winter manicure, but still gorgeous
none the less.
And of course, I used a base coat, and finished the manicure with
Seche Vite Top Coat.

Have a Great Weekend Everybody!

oh!  p.s.  Have you all heard about Coty (the brand that owns Sally Hansen) purchasing OPI? what do you think about it?
