Hello lovelies,

 

It's finally Friday!!! I'm so looking forward to the weekend and some time to do swatching and nail art. I also hope to finish editing another video tutorial so stay tuned for that ;)

 

Today I want to show you a beautiful vibrant red coral polish from Rococo Nail Apparel. The shade is called Hip-Hop and has creme finish. The formula was really good - easy to apply and well-pigmented. One coat could be enough for short nails but I applied two coats for perfect coverage. The polish dried fast and glossy, I have absolutely nothing bad to say about it.

I have also used Rococo Nail Apparel Superbase Treatment Basecoat and Supergloss Topcoat with this polish.

 

Superbase Treatment Basecoat is milky white in the bottle but dries almost clear. It is a bit thicker and dries longer than regular clear base coats and for me it worked quite well as ridge filler.

 

Supergloss Topcoat was surprisingly very good. I say surprisingly because I didn't expect it to perform as well - the formula is thin and easy to apply and it dries fast. I only disliked the smell which is quite unconventional and honestly I can't describe it.

Rococo Nail Apparel polishes are available at Lookfantastic, SpaceNK and Feelunique. I bought the ring in Primark.

 

Hope you'll have a lovely weekend and don't forget to stop by for a nail art post and a very special surprise you won't want to miss!

Hello lovelies,

 

It's time to review another hand care product and this time it's Yves Rocher Ultra nourishing hand cream. If you don't know Yves Rocher, it is a no.1 Beauty Care brand in France. I personally love their Eye Makeup remover with Cornflower, It's been my staple item for over 7 years. But I have never tried their hand creams up until now.

 

I chose to try the Ultra nourishing hand cream because even though the winter isn't very cold this year, my hands feel super dry all the time. This hand cream contains extract of protective and soothing Arnica. It is also paraben-free and it is not tested on animals

Protect your hands with Yves Rocher Ultra Nourishing Hand Cream

 

The first thing I notice in hand creams is the scent. The scent is light so I had to deliberately smell my hand very closely. I smell a bit of the Arnica flower but sometimes it smelled like bitter almonds. I like that it is not overpowering strong smell.

 

The consistency is a bit thicker as this is ultra nourishing hand cream and it takes a bit of an effort to properly spread it out but it's nothing too bad. It soaks in quite fast but I've had a sticky layer on my hands for a while. I found that even if I quickly washed off the sticky layer, my hands were still nicely nourished. It feels like it definitely does what it says on the packaging - my hands feel revived, nourished and ready for the cold weather.

 

The hand cream comes in the classic squeeze-out tube with 50ml of product and is currently priced at £7 on the UK Yves Rocher website or $13 on the US Yves Rocher website.
