Review: Cuter Cuticles Mani Bombs and Cuticle Oil

IMG_1502
Tonight’s Indie Appreciation Week post takes us back to when I made my first indie purchase. It was a time when my weekly manicures were increasing in frequency, and I found myself changing polish every 2-3 days. All that acetone took a toll on my nails and cuticles, and I was desperate for a fix. That’s when I discovered Cuter Cuticles and placed my very first order. Now, almost a year later, Sammy’s handmade cuticle oils and mani bombs have become a necessary part of my nail care routine.

As you can see, my nails and cuticles get pretty dry after a round of swatching and mending a cracked nail. But don’t worry, Cuter Cuticles can save them!

This Sweet Tarts Treasure Bomb is ready to drop into a bowl of warm water. Treasure bombs are a bit more special than regular mani bombs because they have a surprise hidden inside. Who doesn’t love surprises?

The bombs fizz up and release an intoxicating scent. I honestly can’t say which scent is my favourite because there are just so many to choose from and they all smell divine.

Now just soak your fingers and relax. Be sure to wear at least a clear coat of polish if you plan to soak for more than a few minutes – too much water can be damaging to your nails. This is also a good time to search for the treasure if you used a treasure bomb.

After soaking for a few minutes, slather on some cuticle oil and enjoy your treasure. This smiley face ring was the perfect treasure, as it complements my happy, healthy cuticles.

Welcome to Midnight Hour Beauty!

My name is Sarah and I’m a beauty-holic. I paint my nails at least twice a week and spend far too much money at Sephora. I’m currently building my freelance business as a makeup artist and nail technician, and am taking a makeup course to help me along that path.

I’m also a bit of an insomniac. It’s about 1am right now and, as usual, I’m sitting here working away on my computer. Most of my posts will probably go up late at night, as that is when my brain truly comes alive. But don’t worry if you’re not a night owl, you crazy morning people can just see the posts when you wake up.

The Midnight Hour Beauty blog is about pretty much anything related to cosmetics and beauty. Expect to see posts ranging from product reviews and tutorials, to daily looks and must-have favourites. I’ll even have a diary series to chronicle my days at beauty school.

Come back Tuesday to see my review of GLAMGLOW® SUPERMUD™ Clearing Treatment!
