Since I started to post about my monthly empties I might as well do a monthly post about my favorites too. These favorites are mostly makeup this time. When it comes to nails I pretty much always use my all time favorites and don’t change them too much. So here are the products that made me so happy in February.
It’s already spring on my nails
It’s still winter here in Finland and I can’t wait for spring to get here. I always get so much energy from spring. Days will be longer and there’s more sunlight. So now I also felt like using some bright colors on my nails too.
True Organic of Sweden – All You Need Is Me intensive cream
A while ago I was sent a tube of True Organic of Sweden All You Need Is Me cream. This is a multi purpose cream that can be used for a lot of things from dry cuticles to red baby bottoms. I’ve been using and testing this for a good time now and I’m very impressed.
Blue Essies for winter with a hint of gold
There’s still a good amount of snow on the ground here in Finland so it’s a perfect time of the year to wear blue polishes. I just always associate blue polish with winter. I did another very quick and easy nail art thingy too. That’s all I have time for nowadays. My youngest one is a real life human tornado and when he is up it is completely impossible for me to do my nails. So quick and easy manis it is :)

piCture pOlish – Sizzle
Hello, hello! I have a new favorite hot pink! Holy crap this polish is awesome!
piCture pOlish Sizzle by Cosmetic Sanctuary is just amazing in every way. The color is in your face bright hot pink and the formula is just perfection. I mean this practically applied itself. Opaque with two coats and quick dry time. This also has a very subtle scattered holo effect that is only visible in direct sunlight.
It doesn’t get any better than this! Read more…

Sally Hansen 18K Gold Hardener
Today it’s time for my review of the new Sally Hansen 18K Gold Hardener. As I have previously mentioned I usually don’t use nail strengtheners cos they make my nails too hard and they start to peel and chip easier. How ever Sally Hansen Nail Rehab base coat worked so well for me that I wanted to give this one a try too.
Today I’m showing you how well Rimmel Lasting Finish 25H Foundation with Comfort Serum and Lasting Finish Concealer work for me.
The photos below have not been retouched in any way other than cropping and adding the text. So with this makeup foundation, what you see is what you get on my skin. I have a dry combination skin that very easily looks dry after applying makeup. After three to four hours at the latest I usually experience the foundation running from my cheeks and especially the tip of my nose exposing the red skin. I need all kinds of primer and powdering tricks to keep my face looking good for more than three hours.

My nail care routine
Today I thought I’d share my nail care routines with you and show you some of the products I use. Earlier this year I removed my gel nails and grew back my natural nails. I’ve also done a lot of reading at NailCareHQ.com and found some very useful articles.

ScraPerfect Best Glue Ever and Watercolor nails with foil
Happy Sunday! I haven’t used nail foils for a long time cos I’ve always felt like they are hard to use. They don’t stick, they wrinkle, glue doesn’t dry, glue dries too fast and so on. I got this bottle of ScraPerfect Best Glue Ever a while ago and I finally decided to be brave enough to try foil again. I used it on parts of the nails and I think it ended up looking great. So today I’m going to share my experience with ScraPerfect Best Glue Ever with you.
