Keepin’ Cute Cuticles – Medicine Mama’s Sweet Bee Magic Cream Review

Hello everyone! Happy Wednesday; already half way till the weekend, wohoo! Today’s review post is a bit a different. As I was fixing my nails and prepping them to apply the winner from the last polish poll later this week, I thought I would share the nighttime cuticle/body moisturizer I love using. Medicine Mama’s Sweet Bee Magic Cream has been my go to evening cream for the past six months. The product retails for $22.50 for the 4 oz size and was purchased off Amazon.

A Hint of Sparkle for a Fall Neutral

Hello everyone! I hope your day has been wonderful thus far. As fall slowly makes it way in, certain nail polishes compliment the warm colors of the season. Orly’s polish in Nite Owl is a great fall inspired color for those who want something a bit softer on the nails especially if your are transitioning from having a darker nail polish. Nite Owl is a light taupe shade with finely milled glitter particles to add a subtle touch of glam without being too noisy. I applied this over my Sally Hansen Hard as Nails strengthener and added Seche Vite top coat for a faster dry. Overall, I would say this is a fantastic polish. It applies easily with one application. The polish has a nice creamy consistency adding to the ease of application and is opaque on the first coat. It’s a great quick nail polish that compliments any outfit due to it’s neutral color. Until next time. Take care! Remember to like Miss Alice Beauty on Facebook and follow Miss Alice Beauty on Twitter!
