Quarantine Manicure 💅🏼
Hi my name is Katerina, you may call me Kat and I’m a neutrals girl. I gravitate to anything and everything neutrals. I may have 50 shades of neutral polish in my collection already. But that doesn’t stop me from adding more! I found this pretty shade on amazon during my regular quarantine browse. I never tried the miracle gel line and decided to give it a go. Just so you know I prefer regular polish for myself. I know you may pass judgment but hear me out! I feel like gel and shellac and other long lasting polishes destroy my nails. They become dry, thin, brittle and break easily. I don’t think it’s worth it. So I prefer to experiment with different brands of regular polishes to see which lasts the longest. Also a couple of chips here and there really don’t bother me. This is my 5th time using this product so I feel like I can give an honest review about how I feel about it. The color is called ‘Little Peony #247’🌸It’s a creamy baby pink shade. It almost reminds me of the OLD Essie Fiji color (my favorite shade of all time before they changed it to a darker pink color). It took two coats to get an even distribution of color and dried quickly when topped with Seche Vite top coat. The color started chipping around day five. But before you click away let me tell you that my hands are always in water. I’m a Chef, so I’m always working with my hands. I’m also a clean freak that still gets on her hands and knees to clean the floors from a bucket twice a week. So my hands take a beating on a regular basis and this polish managed to stay intact through the daily torture. If you’re not working this much with your hands I’m pretty sure you can get away with a week of it not chipping. I’m probably going to look into more shade from this collection and see if the Fórmula holds up for all their shades this well. If you’re still a regular polish fan I highly recommend this collection but especially this color because I die over it!

Tiny But Mighty!
They say big things come in small packages and in my opinion this little jar packed with magical goodies! I’ll be honest I’ve had this little jar in my wish list on Dermstore.com for about a year now. I couldn’t convince myself to pay $58 for such a tiny amount of product! No way is it worth that much, I’d say to myself. That is until one day I went to treat myself and take a looong relaxing shower and take care of bhsinesss. That is..wash my hair, leave a mask in as I shaved, scrubbed the dead skin off my feet, exfoliated my whole body, the whole 9 yards ladies. I felt like a whole new woman until I stepped outta the shower and felt like my legs were on fire. I got a rash! I put on lotion hoping to calm the irritation but unfortunately the next day I had hundreds of little bumps all over my legs the next day. All ingrown hairs. Not sure where I went wrong but a week goes by and nothing I tried got rid of them. I finally decided to order the little jar and thought myself this better be worth the hype and it absolutely was. It’s a miracle in a little jar. I’ve been using it for about a week now and the little bumps are healing slowly. It seems like a small amount of product but the texture of the ointment prevents you from using too much because it’s oily and slippery but absorbs into your skin quickly just give it a couple of minutes. I decided to test this products abilities even further when my mom cut her cuticles doing her nails by her self. If you’ve ever had the displeasure of having your cuticles cut you know the pain you feel for the next few days after. It’s annoying. So I asked her to apply the ointment to the nicked areas at night. Two nights later they healed! I was so pleasantly surprised that it worked so well! I absolutely recommend EVERYONE buy one jar to have it in their emergency kit. It’s one product that can take care of all minor skin breakouts, irritations and injuries. ***I should also mention I wasn’t sponsored by this company to write this review. I’m just a girl that likes to give credit where credit is due :)
