We tend to focus on the obvious. Creme, glitter, holo, shimmer polishes draw our eye and capture our attention. But, we forget to think about what goes on behind the scenes. A good nail care routine can enhance the overall look of our finished manicures and add to the health of our nails.
Wyoming has a very dry climate. The wind and cold temperatures can sap any moisture right out of my skin. I use tons of lotions, but it never seems to fully hydrate my cuticles and nails. So I often use a cuticle oil for that deep conditioning that my nails seem to crave.
Elevation Polish has started stocking a few of Lulu's Favorite Things. These are products that she continually uses and loves. One of the items is Emerald & Ash Cuticle Oil. I tried one and I want to share my thoughts with you.
The scent I tried is Yeti Relaxes in Lakshadweep. It has a creamy coconut and bergamot scent. The fragrances blend well together and give it a soft spicy, yet sweet scent. It is a subtle and clean fragrance. Bergamot is a common top note in perfumes.
I have used this oil for the last week and apply it twice a day. The roller-ball provides for easy application. The ball is small and allows for focused application. The oil glides on and doesn't leave a greasy or oily residue. It absorbs into the cuticle area within a few short minutes. I have noticed a positive difference in my cuticles since I started using it. The bottle is perfect for carrying with you in your purse. The bottle is constructed of sturdy thick glass - so I have confidence that it is going to stay intact.
This cuticle oil is affordable too. You can purchase it on the Elevation Polish website for $4.25 for a 10ml sized bottle. You can see the size of the bottle in the photo below. Oh, and that gorgeous blue polish is an Elevation Polish SBP - Uvs Nuur.
