Top 10 Nail Care Products

Nail Care products are available by the thousands.. maybe even more.  For this Top 10 Tuesday I’m narrowing down my top nail care products to just ten.  Oddly, I didn’t have 10 of any one item (such as cuticle oil or base coats, etc) to narrow this down with.  It seems when I find a nail care item I love I stick with it, which is good news because you’ll know these items are HG for me and not just a passing fancy!

Top 10 Nail Care ProductsIn no particular order:

  1. Cult Nails Glass Nail File.  I’ve had this for at least a year, maybe two?  I think I paid $10 way back but now they’re $15 and come with a case.  But that’s how long this lasts!  Well worth the investment!
  2. I am loving Revlon ColorStay Gel-Shine Top Coat for an incredibly glossy finish….
  3. ….but if I need my polish to dry super fast and still be glossy I go for Seche Vite.
  4. Sally Hansen Insta-Grip Fast Dry Base Coat.  I love this so much!  It dries like the wind.  I started using it after I ran out of another fave – Butter London Nail Foundation (not pictured).
  5. Julep Essential Cuticle Oil.  This has a roller ball, which excites me way more than it should.  It’s also a great oil.
  6. Butter London Handbag Holiday Cuticle Oil.  This is just a go-to of mine for the last year, fabulous moisture!
  7. Nicole by OPI Oil to Go.  This just recently released, but it’s perfect for keeping in your purse.  I’m always running out the door and I look at my nails and I’m all… ew.  Especially in the winter, moisturize those cutes!
  8. LUSH Lemony Flutter.  Is there anyone out there who doesn’t use this?!  I smear it all over my hands, pop on some gloves and hang out.  It’s a savior.
  9. Gloves.  Seriously.  Get yourself manicure gloves and soak that cream and oil in.  Remember SOAK and LOCK!
  10. Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream.  I got to try this through BzzAgent and I’ve been rebuying ever since!  It’s coating, but sinks in.  Fabulous!

Top 10 Rose Gold Beauty Items

Affiliate Links

Rose Gold was a big hit for 2013, and it’ll definitely be carrying over into the New Year.  For this edition of Top 10 Tuesday we’re featuring out Top 10 Rose Gold Products.  I chose to focus on beauty, but I definitely could’ve gone the way of jewelry at this point!

Top 10 Rose Gold Beauty Products

  1. Laura Mercier Rose Gold Caviar Stick Eye Colour – A great base for any eye look, multiple possibilities… even worn alone!  Bonus: It also will hold up all day without creasing!
  2. Hourglass Ignite Extreme Sheen High Shine Lip Gloss – A sheer rose gold shade to add to bare lips or to spice up a vampy holiday color.
  3. Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette – The latest to the UD Nakeds, of course this palette makes the list!  Out of all of the Naked palettes this one is my fave and I feel it’s the most widely wearable.  Must have!
  4. OPI Make Him Mine Liquid Sand Nail Polish – From Mariah Carey Holiday 2013.  This shade stole my heart before it even hit my nails.
  5. Benefit Rockateur Powder Blush – A new one from Benefit, Rockateur is a light and wearable Rose Gold shade for the cheeks.
  6. Marc Jacobs Gatsby Enamored Hi-Shine Nail Lacquer in Gatsby – A metallic rose gold nail polish, perfect for New Years Eve!
  7. Butter London Bit Faker Nail Polish – A glitter polish loaded with rose gold and bronze shades.  This would pair up perfectly with MJ Gatsby!
  8. em Cosmetics Ro’s Gold Waterliner – I love using this to brighten up the waterline area or making the inner corners of the eyes pop.  Bonus… it doesn’t budge!
  9. Laura Mercier Illuminating Eye Colour in Rose Gold – This is more of a “to be reviewed” because I just ordered it from the Sephora Sale on Sale.  I lusted this like crazy when it released but by the time I convinced myself to order it wasn’t around.  I considered myself ridiculously lucky that I saw it on sale online at Sephora and then got an extra 20% off on top of that!
  10. MAC RiRi Hearts M·A·C Holiday Cosmetic Bag – Not really so much a beauty “product” but it holds lots of beauty products!  I ordered this sight unseen, unsure of how good the quality would be or if I’d even like it.  I love it!  The quilted fabric feels plush and it’s a definitely win.  Review to come!

Butter London COTTON BUDS, CAKE-HOLE, SILLY BILLY Swatches & Review – Colour Clash Fall 2013

Press Sample/Affiliate Links

The butter LONDON Fall 2013 Colour Clash Collection features five fun and bold shades and one glaringly white shade to amp up your mani with some vibrant nail art (like my 4th of July not-so-conventional mani)!  Of the six shades I’m really excited to share with you Cotton Buds, Cake-Hole and Silly Billy!

IMG_9881Cotton Buds (bright white cream) – This is an excellent white shade, coating evenly and completely in two coats.

IMG_0029Cake-Hole (an eccentric watermelon pink) – Aside from having a name that just cracks me up every time I see it, this polish is flawless.  It paints on almost like it’s air and is absolutely gorgeous.  Two coats.

IMG_0062Silly Billy (a juicy deep orange) – is so orange it makes me thirsty when I look at it.  The formula was smooth on this one as well.  Two coats.

IMG_0065These picks from the butter LONDON Fall 2013 Colour Clash Collection are all must haves in my book.  Cotton Buds is perfect if you don’t have a white polish (it’s so hard to find one that isn’t streaky) and Cake-Hole is the essential watermelon neon shade everyone should have for at least their toes.  If you’ve been on the hunt for that perfect orange, look no further than Silly Billy.  I’m brutally impressed!

The butter LONDON Colour Clash Collection Nail Polishes retail for $15 each and can be found at Ulta, Sephora or online at

Butter London Poole, Sunbaker and Bit Faker Nail Polish Swatches & Review – Summer Holiday Collection 2013

Press SampleAffiliate Links

Six new shades of nail lacquer are released from Butter London in the 2013 Summer Holiday Collection – Bit Faker, Sunbaker, Champers, Poole, Marbs and Bobby Dazzler.  I have three to share with you today – Poole, Sunbaker and Bit Faker – and more on my wish list!


IMG_3421Poole is a lovely blue cream, reminding me of a robin’s egg meets Tiffany blue.  The formula was quite nice and I only needed two coats for full and even opacity.

Sun Baker

IMG_3444Sunbaker is a brassy metallic orange with flashes of gold, making the polish glow in the light.  This polish painted on so nicely and was fully opaque in two coats.

Bit Faker

IMG_3462Bit Faker is a true full coverage glitter with shades of copper, bronze, rose gold, gold and silver.  It’s insane how gorgeous this is.  There are no words, just look at it.  It’s a top coat sucker, so be warned it has a bit of a gritty feel.  Only two coats were needed for full opacity.

These are clearly all must haves, though you may have something similar to Poole in your stash.  My fave is Bit Faker… the dimension is just so beautiful!  As for my wish list, I absolutely must get my hands on Champers!

Butter London Nail Lacquer retails for $15 and is available for purchase at Nordstrom, Ulta and
