Happy New Year! I hope you all had an amazing holiday season and were able to spend some quality time with loved ones.
The last couple of months have been kind of weird for me. There was a ton of drama in the nail community and that, coupled with my own depression and anxiety, really soured nail polish for me. I just was not feeling it. At all. I was picking my cuticles hardcore, my nails kept splitting and breaking and I had zero motivation to take pictures or formulate sentences.
While at Cosmoprof I had the privilege of attending the Tips & Sips event hosted by Nail Pro, Nail It! & Katie Cazorla. One of the vendors at the event was Cuccio Colour and they were insanely generous - we received their ASP Gel line, some body care items and like three different collections.
I finally got around to trying a few and let me just say, I'm impressed. The colours are great, the formula was so smooth and easy to apply and I enjoyed the brush as well. I was wanting something softer but still interesting so I decided to wear Sun Kissed (from the Nudetrals collection) which is a pinky peach shade with gold shimmer and teeny tiny silver glitter. It's so pretty and feminine and a perfect palette cleanser without being boring.
Shown here is three thin coats topped with Glisten & Glow HK Girl.
I wore Sun Kissed by itself for a day and then decided to use one of the crèmes to test out stamping. I love the combination of pink/champagne and purple so decided to use Count Me In to stamp with. After looking through my paltry stamping plate collection I decided on a pretty dahlia image on plate 4-01 from Uber Chic. All in all, I'm pretty happy with my novice stamping attempt.
Have you tried Cuccio Colour before? If not, I highly recommend tracking some down!
