Just received my Bliss Kiss order that I placed earlier this week. Bliss Kiss is currently having their twice yearly sale on their nail oil refill kits - $16.99 for a half ounce bottle of the oil and an oil pen. I also purchased a mini Simply Sealed lotion stick.
I normally get the 4 oz size of the oil but it was not part of the sale. I'll probably get that at some point later on, though, because it is more economical for the amount that I use.
If you've followed me for very long or have looked through all of my posts, you already have witnessed me raving about the nail oil so I won't do that again in this post. I am, however, here to rave about the lotion stick.
I got the mini version just to give it try but will be getting the 2 oz version at some point as well.
This lotion is in solid form and looks much like lip balm. I had already used it before it occurred to me to take a picture so I apologize for that in advance.
The directions say to rub some into the back of your hand but I did my palm, which worked better for me. It doesn't take much, either. The solid melts instantly, which makes it very easy to spread over both hands. This does contain lanolin, which can sometimes cause an allergic reaction in some people. I used to have a problem with it but I'm hoping I've 'grown out' of that issue. So far, so good.
Now, since it's almost been a year since I first started using Bliss Kiss Pure Nail Oil, as it was called then, I thought I would do some updated pics of the nails. You get to see the new nubbins. Aren't you lucky?
First, a post hand wash pic.
The sun was shining into my nail room so you get a natural light pic. Not as bad as it used to be. Still some dryness toward the ends and now I see a small peelie at the corner of that thumbnail. Winter has already made its mark on my nails and it's barely started.
Now, post oiling.
Just look at that shine. All the dry areas are quenched and things look much better.
Because the lotion stick claims to leave behind a barrier to water, I'm assuming it also might prevent oil from sinking in so I put that on after the oil had sat for a bit.
Still quite shiny but never fear. The lotion stick also seems to sink in and after 30 minutes...
...all absorbed. And in case you're wondering what's with the pointer, that's the cuticle beneath the nail tip peeking out. Didn't know there was a cuticle there? Yeah, neither did I until I read it on the Bliss Kiss site. Lots of informative articles there.
So what do you think of the new nails? I told you they were nubbins. Hmm, and I can see I might need to take a glass file to that middle nail. Not quite even there. Also looks like I need to do some cuticle work on that ring finger. Otherwise, they look pretty good in spite of all the grooves and bumps.
While I do enjoy it when my nails are longer, I also like them this length. This is when I like to wear the darker colors. Just something about a dark color on little nubbins.
Well, that's all for today. If you've wanted to try Bliss Kiss nail oil, now is a good time. The sale will continue through tomorrow and you know I highly recommend it.
Thanks for reading and stay tuned.
