Review: Sephora Exfoliating Cuticle Treatment

I was at Sephora the other day looking for cuticle removers and found this one named Sephora by OPI Exfoliating Cuticle Treatment. I had to write a review.

1. Most importantly it does its job. Just apply it onto your cuticles and massage for 30 seconds. You will see them clean and gone and your nails will feel manicured.

2. It smells great.

Outlined Pearl

This nail art was inspired by the latest M.A.C Cosmetics banner that I caught a glimpse of at the mall. “Outlined Pearl” is a simple manicure with a pearl white base which is then bordered with a black striper. Start by applying a base coat. The paint all your nails a pearl white. I used REVLON’s Pure Pearl (#020). Let it dry. Using a black striper, border your nails from all sides. Finish the look with a top coat. I used the fast drying top coat by Seche Vite. You can also try this nail art with a matte white instead of a pearl white.

Black striper from Sally’s Beauty Supply.

Free Hand Design

Since the time i was little i have loved art, color and paintings. I love decorating my nails with even the simplest of design. Today, I decided to paint my nails with a pattern that came to my mind at that very instance. So I grabbed a couple of my polishes 1. Mint Sorbet by Sally Hansen and 2. A beautiful purple color by finger nails and ended up with a free hand design with the use of some nail art brushes and a white and a silver striper. Don’t you love this manicure?

I started off with my OPI base coat and then painted all my nails 3 coats of purple. Wait between coats for each of them to dry. Then use a white and a silver striper and draw vertical parallel lines on the right of the nail. Then with Mint Sorbet, draw some leaves on the left of the lines. Top it off with a fast drying top coat. I used Seche Vite.
