I received this lovely package from KB Shimmer while attending the bloggers event that Katie Cazorla and Nail Pro/NailIt hosted during Cosmoprof NA in Las Vegas.
Nail Pro along with Katie Cazorla held a blogger event at Cosmoprof NA this year.
Although I know it is still August, I have to share this little tib bit that made me feel like Christmas was here early.
Part of the package contained this WONDERFUL smelling cuticle oil. It really does smell like Chai Tea. The bonus is that the scent stayed with me for a good couple of hours.
Chai Tea scented cuticle oil from KB Shimmer
The pen that it comes is has a soft brush (I’m not sure what it is made of) and on the other end is a dial that you turn to push the cuticle oil up to the brush. You have good control over how much comes out that way! Plus it is perfect for your purse, especially while travelling!
The oil is has a creamy texture to it which is nice. No oil slick here!
So, if you are one of those folks that loves Christmas and all the delicious scents that surround it, you definitely need to go to https://www.kbshimmer.com/ to make sure you get some for yourself.
You will also find her fabulous nail polish, and just new to me, Mani Shots! I have to find out more info on those things for sure.

I wanted to thank Christy for the lovely gift package. I will continue to blog about the other gifts inside.
Great news for health conscious or for people with sensitivities.
Now 7 free!!!!
Jessica Cosmetics, long standing natural nail care company is now 7 FREE! The products that are EXCLUDED from their products areFormaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, Toluene, DBP, Camphor, Xylene and Ethyl Tosylamide.
I found this out at IBS from Joey Brown. She was excited to tell us that Jessica Cosmetics Nail Polish, Phenom (their gel like nail polish) and GELaration (their light cured gel polish)
Such great news for us. And, the color selection from Jessica Cosmetics is wonderful as well.
Here is a pack of nail lacquers to show you a sample.
one of the newest trends to hit the nail industry is in the news and in use lately.
Made apparent in articles such as this!
The hybrid system that takes the best of gel nails (longevity of wear) and pairs it with the best of polish (ease of application and more importantly, ease of removal) is one of the most innovative products to hit the market of late.
I have had the opportunity to use a couple of them. Including Caption by Young Nails and Infinite Shine from OPI. Both wonderful products with amazing color selections.
Recently I got the opportunity to use Phenom by Jessica Cosmetics.
Again, beautiful finished product with a wonderful color selection but here’s the kicker!
Phenom – lovely color selection from Jessica Cosmetics
You use your own base coat! No big deal right??? Wrong! So let’s say you have that client that has the most incredibly dry nails. And you have been having success in using a specialized nail treatment for her. Well, guess what, with Phenom, you continue to use that specialized treatment, then apply Phenom color and the special top coat called Finale Shine.
Here are some of the colors that I found. So pretty….including the first two that would work beautifully for french manicures!
Each picture is on a pallet that has two coats of color and Finale Shine to finish.
These two would be perfect for a french mani!
Pretty in Pearls
A very pretty soft creamy lilac color
A pretty soft skin toned pink. It would work perfect for the office during the week, then add some art for the weekend. The color palette is perfect for adding any other color you love.
The perfect pool party pink.
And, like the other hybrids, this polish will last up to 10 days!
But remember, you can use any base coat with it. I would definitely check out Jessica’s “Rejuvenation” for dry nails as a base for those customers struggling with moisture loss. I use it on a gal who has very dry and brittle nails, and it is working wonders.
While I was on a flight recently, I noticed this great gadget the flight attendant was wearing. I think every one should have one of these. No more “tools for jewels” scenario’s coming into the nail salon!
It is a “ring” that you wear between your first and second knuckle and you use it to pop the tops off your soda cans.
Thank you to Patrick from West Jet for letting me take the picture! He told me he got it from a online flight attendant website. I think you might be able to find them knocked off somewhere else! Great gadget for large parties where you are opening lots of cans of sodas/beer!
