If you want to venture into some (well, OK…it’s LOTS!) nail art, Juicy-Nails has THE giveaway for you. This is her first giveaway, but by no means, is Juicy a beginner. Check out her nail blog and you’ll see what I mean.
There is a question/comment on my previous post on the new Men’s Signature Collection at Bath & Body Works. I got these descriptions off the B&BW website. This gives you an idea at how complex these fragrances are. Explaining them would be like giving you a synopsis of what the show Lost was about.
Our Noir fragrance is a bold, exotic blend of black cardamom and white musk.
Our Oak fragrance is a warm, woodsy blend of red oak, cedarwood & musk. Top fragrance notes: Bergamot, Lemon, Crisp Aldehydes, Juniper, Clary Sage Our Ocean fragrance is a refreshing blend of cypress, vetiver and yuzu.
Top fragrance notes: Crisp Bergamot, Pink Grapefruit, Fresh Sage, Lemon Zest I hope these descriptions help where I failed to be able to explain these. As you can see, they are so complex that is is hard to describe. And, it is the lead-end phrase that hooks you to these smells.
Mid fragrance notes: Nutmeg, Clove, Pimento, Geranium, Orange Flower, Lavender
Base fragrance notes: Patchouli, Cedarwood, Sandalwood, Vetiver, Coffee, Musk
Mid fragrance notes: Lavender, Coriander, Hedione, Waterlily

I cannot even begin to explain the fragrances. They are masculine and sexy and I love them all. Favorite is probably Noir. Hubby said it was his too. We are a good, clean couple.
Do you think you’ll go check these out? And, how about wearing guy’s fragrances or body products? Yes or no?
This is the polish I did this morning. This is Finger Paints ‘Add and Abstract.’ I alternate colors and intensities each time I change out my polish. Last time was a fiery red, this time, a tranquil, deep blue.
Both of these are outside but with an overcast sky.
Not good for Memorial Weekend.
Top one is in sunny window light. I’m seeing streaks and VNL.
Bottom thumb photo is outside, sunny. I wanted to catch the shimmer. This is without a top coat.
Even though my cuticles are dry, they are looking much more ‘normal’ than when I was chewing the heck out of them. Yesterday I did a lot of driving for my work. I struggled with not biting the hell out of them. I do with there was a way to carry cuticle oil or butter with me. But in the Florida heat and a closed car, not a good combination for most cosmetics. :( I did have some hand lotion and I actually used up the rest of the tube which, has been in my car for some time. I think that’s my best bet is a tube of hand lotion. Any recommendations?
What is your ‘go-to’ summer hand and nail product?
PS…don’t forget my giveaway. It’s going to end in approximately 48 hours!
I just discovered this nail blog and what a discovery. It’s Deniz from Emerald Sparkled. She is hosting a super contest and I just had to share (knowing that I’d reduce my odds for winning but, eh, you’re my friends!). Jump over here and see what Konad goodies she’s offering. Oh, and she’s looking for the craziest, wackiest nail art too. Something you wouldn’t wear out for others to admire (or see ).
In our lovely world of nails, we like giveaways. I mean REALLY like giveaways. :) And the fever has been caught by Candy Coated Tips. Check out her purple giveaway. You know I love ‘themes.’ Tell her we sent ya over!
If you haven’t checked out my post just previous to this one, run! Go look! It’s a giveaway!
All the items I have shown are brand new. I may add some other surprises in before the package ships out, just because free surprises are so much FUN!
Thanks, again, for joining me.
