Review of Beauty Big Bang Cuticle Nipper

Hello! Sorry for disappearing, but life has been crazy, and it’s hard trying to stay on top of a written blog. Definitely find me @finepolish on InstagramFacebook, Tumblr, or Twitter if you want to keep up with all my latest designs!

Today I want to show you an item that I’ve been meaning to get for the longest time that is a necessity for a good nail care routine: cuticle nippers!

These cuticle nippers from Beauty Big Bang come in a reusable vinyl pouch.

There’s information on the back of the card along with a bar code for the item. The tip of the scissors is covered with a protective plastic cover.

Yes, I know, everyone says you shouldn’t ever cut your cuticles and only push them back, but while I wouldn’t recommend doing this every time you do your nails, sometimes you get dry bits of skin around your nails that need to be removed. I usually try to trim these bits with either nail scissors or nail clippers, but neither tool does the job as well or efficiently as this!

These nippers are as easy to hold and use as a pair of pliers. The nippers have a default open position, so you only need to squeeze the handles together to cut your target. The handles have just the right amount of tension so that you don’t need a lot of strength to do the trimming, but they don’t immediately close together in your hand.

What is extra appealing about the tip is how the cutting edge stays flush with your surface, allowing you to trim closely with precision. Care must be taken that you don’t cut into your living skin because the edges are sharp. As the instructions say, clip away small amounts at a time and do this in moderation. It is possible to get an infection if you clip away too much skin, causing an open wound, so please be careful!

The nippers should be positioned this way as you trim away dead skin.

It is easy to clean away the clipped debris when the tip is open.

These nippers are made of durable stainless steel and have a beautiful rainbow chrome finish, and can also be used for cutting decals and striping tape, so they make an excellent addition to your nail art toolkit.

Review of Mefa 12 Color Gel Polish Set

Who can say no to a good box set? I’m a sucker for buying collections of items, so it’s no shocker that I end up with so many nail polishes. They’re just so small and colorful! Today we’re looking at a 12 bottle set of gel polishes from Mefa. They are super affordable and come in a cute box set that is perfect for gift giving.

The back of the package lists the ingredients and warnings. As with all gel polishes, you should test a little bit of the formula on your skin for a few minutes to make sure you don’t have an allergic reaction to it prior to curing it on your nails.

Review of Aimeili 113 Strongylodon Macrobotrys Gel Polish

I’m still busy working through my collection of Aimeili gel polishes, so today’s review is on number 113 Strongylodon Macrobotrys, a beautiful vivid sky blue in a creme finish.

Truly a gel polish color like no other! You don’t see blue shades like this that often.

This color really stands out in my collection because it’s not a shade that gets duplicated a lot. It makes me think of fun tropical drinks and blue cotton candy, so you’ll need to have a fun personality to pull this shade off!

Review of Aimeili 065 Pink Nude Gel Polish

Seems like there’s a lot of talk about jelly polishes lately, especially with the launch of the new sheer tint collection from Maniology. You won’t be able to stamp with this gel polish from Aimeili, but you will be able to create that coveted stained glass look with it!

The jelly polish in question is color 065 Pink Nude, which is a fairly transparent pink tint that resembles rosewater. It comes in a 10 mL bottle and cures in 60 seconds in a 36W UV/LED lamp.

Review of Aimeili 016 Tinsel Toast Gold Diamond Gel Polish

Here’s a gel polish with a jelly finish: Aimeili’s 016 Tinsel Toast Gold Diamond. For those who don’t know, a jelly polish is basically a tinted clear lacquer, and it usually serves as the vehicle of choice for glitter particles because it still allows glitter to shine through the formula. This particular color from Aimeili features a dusky rose tinted base and features small silver glitter flakes to serve as the “diamonds” that the name of the polish refers to.

Don’t be fooled by the bottle shot! This polish is actually a jelly and does not provide dense glitter coverage.
