I have set myself the challenge of using up Champneys Pink, I have many pink polishes I never reach for so it would be good to use them up. Excuse the tip wear, I wasn't sure I liked these nails, the pink has Weird Sisters which is a clear to black thermal.
So far in 2021 I haven't bought any nail polish, the polish I would have bought is Orly So Fly which is a neon highlighter green shade which I don't have one of in my collection. I say would have bought because I can't find one in stock online anywhere at the moment other than the gel version.
I've tried many cuticle moisturising products over the years but not one that claims to be matte. This particular one has been known to be called 'swatchers balm'. While I do swatch nail polish I actually wear it for a few days rather than swatch - photo - remove - repeat.
Claims to be:
- Cruelty free
- Free of common allergens
- Vegan, no beeswax
- 85% organic
I had been applying it with my finger as the heat from my finger melted the balm enough to use however because I have longer nails it will become harder to apply like that and so I will be using a small brush.
This particular scent is Caramel Pecan Cinnamon Rolls described as "soft salted caramel cinnamon rolls with chopped toasted pecans". I found it smells very sweet, with a slight nut scent. The scent reminded me of the smell you get hit with when you walk in to a candle shop, particularly that of Collectables.
The balm is less oily looking than a normal cuticle oil, the scent lasts for a couple of hours on me even with hand washing and sanitising. It sinks in quickly which means you remove the white cast left by remover and so you can photograph the polish. Overall I like the product, and will continue to use on a day to day basis. For an overnight product I will continue using a traditional cuticle oil for intensive moisturising.
