Claire's Chunky Purple + hitting 50 followers!

Woo! I've hit 50 followers (52 actually)! Thank you everyone who follows :) You are all lovely, and thank you for all the wonderful comments! For hitting 50 I added a new banner so I can scratch that off the blog-to-do list. Next up is forming a blog roll finally.

If I can hit 100 followers I am planning a lovely giveaway!

I just have to say winter is finally catching up on my hands- my cuticles are a disaster and I started noticing it in pictures. What is your favorite cuticle cream/oil? I picked up China Glaze orange cuticle oil but I'm not really liking it (although it smells good) the application is really messy and it doesn't seem to help at all.

Here are some swatches of Claire's Chunky Purple. What a gross color name. Who wants to wear something CHUNKY on their nails? And really, it is more pink than purple. But they are right- it IS chunky. It is dark pink with chunky silver glitter and fine pink glitter mixed in a kinda sheer jelly pink base. This was 3 coats (plus top coat) and the application was kind of a pain in the butt. I think I just kinda hate the color of it though. I also picked up Chunky Blue and Chunky Gold (which was on clearance and gorgeous) so I will have swatches of those coming soon enough. Chunky Purple did some chipping the very next day so they don't wear very well but they are fun anyhow.


And with a coat of Essie Matte About You....

Oh, I never thought to use a matte over this!!
I use Solar Oil, Burt's Bee's and California Mango...they keep my cuticles bearable in the winter!

This looks great! Congrats on 50!

I think I like it better matte honestly!

How does the Burt's compare to the others? I was looking at it the other day and couldn't decide. Burt's seems to be hit or miss.

And Lemony Fluff sounds delicious! I don't have a Lush but maybe I can swap for it on MUA:)

@loverlada - I really like the Burt's .... it smells like Lemon and it's small enough that I keep it in my purse... it says to put it on at night, but I use it whenever....

:B
