Hello lovelies,

Today I will show you a product that is very special to me! This is my secret weapon against dry cuticles and brittle nails and my currently favourite nail care product! Let me introduce you to SpaRitual Cuti-Coctail Pen & Pusher!

I got my first SpaRitual Cuti-Coctail Pen & Pusher as a sample for review and after a week of use I fell in love with it and purchased many more. I have used it several times during the day for two weeks at first and I have noticed huge improvement. My cuticles were no longer dry and flaky and my nails were feeling much stronger.

Interested? Let's check out the product then...

Lucy's Stash - SpaRitual Cuti-Coctail Pen & Pusher

The oil comes in a handy twisting pen with a brush and a rubber cuticle pusher on the cap. It took a bit of twisting before the product came out. Also you need to twist clock wise, not counter clockwise as the directions state.

The formula is something between oil and gel so it is not runny like oil and it's more thicker, like gel. Once it's on the nails & cuticles it kind of melts. It doesn't soak in instantly but it is not oily like normal nail oils so I'm not afraid to use it during the day when I'm on the laptop.

SpaRitual Cuti-Coctail Pen & Pusher contains many good things for nails and cuticles. In addition to the ingredients listed in the picture below, it contains one of the best things for nails - jojoba oil! You should read this very comprehensive guide by Nail Care HQ where you'll find out why jojoba oil also helps with brittle nails! Guide is HERE.

It really does wonders if you use it regularly and least for me it worked amazingly.

How do I use it? I twist the end of the pen to get a bit of product out and then brush it on my cuticles and nails (if they are bare). I let it sit for at least 5 minutes before I massage it into the skin and nails. It is good to massage it to the skin above the cuticles as well because the nails are forming underneath there too and will benefit from it.

I use it several times a day, basically as much as I can. If your cuticles are in a really bad state, use it as often as you can. Once your cuticles are good then you can use it a bit less just to keep them in good condition.

To show you I'm not lying about how much I like the product, look at my recent purchase ;)

So you know what I want to say - I absolutely love this product and right now it is my no.1 nail oil product for a day use (for night I usually do a wrap with various creams & almond oil). After I use up all the pens I will buy the 15ml bottle with a dropper applicator and will refill the pens (I've already tried it and it's possible). That will be much more economical than buying new pen every time. Wonderful product, hands down!

EDIT: I totally forgot to tell you that it also smells like sweet apples, yummy!

You can get these wherever SpaRitual polishes are sold and at:
UK: SpaRitual UK website,
US: SpaRitual US website
Worldwide: FeelUnique (in a larger packaging in a bottle with a dropper only)

Hello lovelies,

I got few more beautiful goodies from Mont Bleu, Czech producer of glass and crystal jewellery, nail files and other products that they decorate either with Swarovski crystals or hand paint. It was a surprise package that I got just after Christmas and I want to show you what I got.

You can check out a proper thorough review of the nail files that I've done a while ago HERE. I still use the files every time I do a manicure and they are still perfect!

Mont Bleu products

This nail file has rounded ends and has very fine 'grain'. I will be using it at the end of filing my nails to 'seal' the edges so my nails don't split. Since I started to use glass nail filed at the end of filing my nails I had no splits so it worked for me.

This next item was very thoughtful because I got nail file with my star sign - Libra :) I think I might gift this one to my mom as she's Libra too. It is the same quality as the previous nail file and it has one clear crystal at the top. The handle is something like clear smooth rubbery plastic, don't really know how else to explain it :)

Then I got these gorgeous little earrings that I absolutely adore and I've been wearing them since. They change colour on the facets depending on an angle. I've tried to capture it in the photographs below.  The crystals are again Swarovski. I've browsed their earrings range and some of them are really nice and also inexpensive.

Mont Bleu also produces decorated pens. This one is matte black, nice slim and sleek with big turquoise crystal on top.

And last but not least - stainless steel tweezers. I got these cute tweezers with pink crystals that came in black velvet case. I've already tried them and they work great. I usually use my Tweezerman tweezers but to be honest I like these very much!
