there are several things i liked about these products.
- the basecoat is extremely fast drying. no waiting around just to apply your polish.
- the basecoat does provide a smooth foundation for your polish by eliminating ridges from nailbeds.
- the topcoat is also extremely fast drying. i don't have time to sit around waiting for my polish to dry. i have diapers to change, kids to entertain, and blogging to do! you know the saying "like watching paint dry", i have neither the patience or the time.
- the topcoat doesn't smudge my polish. i know i RAVE about Seche Vite, but the one downside is that halfway through the bottle it becomes so thick it is virtually unusable and smudges your fresh polish. this topcoat is thick enough to cover, but thin enough not to smudge.
if you are in the market for a basecoat or topcoat, i would recommend them. they can be purchased at any Sally's Beauty. (p.s. i have also been using Essie topcoat, which i do not recommend)
|exhibit A: split fingertip|
ever since we moved to the Rocky Mountains i have been having some major problems with my cuticles and fingertips splitting. ouch! i can usually get it under control with Vaseline but then i fall off the wagon and forget to use that miracle cream.
introducing Poshe cuticle care. a lotion with AHA (alpha hydroxy acids) that exfoliates and hydrates your cuticles. why has it taken so long to figure out that cuticles need AHA for exfoliation?! all that AHA we've been slapping on our face would go a LONG way on those cuticles. exfoliation basically solves any problem in skincare. it seems that our cuticles would be softer, less prone to splitting and cracking, if they were properly exfoliated. THANK YOU Poshe for figuring this out.
a small dab goes a long way. plus, it looks like jewels on my fingers. i think i just had a new idea for a nail design...gotta run.
