Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
Y'all know I love nail polish and when I take pictures for ya'll sometimes I think wow I should have oiled my cuticles before that one. I try to take care of my nails and cuticles because healthy nails grow better and are stronger. It sound silly but I don't function well without long nails. So I was very excited when I was chosen to review GratiAE beautifying nail kit. It came with a nail file, buffer, cuticle oil, and a hand and nail care treatment (lotion). When i opened the package everything was very pretty and it looked regal and elegant to me.
The cuticle oil comes in a pretty pink tube that you squeeze to apply. I'm sure you know being a cuticle oil it is a bit runny and oily but every oil I have ever used was like that. Application is very easy all I did was turn it over on my cuticle and nudge it, not even squeeze then a perfect amount is dispensed. Don't worry if you squeeze, all you have to do is take some oil from one finger and put it on you other cuticles. Then message it in. With ingredients like sweet almonds and grapes it has light pleasant scent. You can distinctly smell the grapes which is okay with me because I like the smell.
The hand and nail care treatment is in a pretty pink tube as well and you squeeze to apply. It's a very lightweight formula with a medium consistency. It too, has a light pleasant smell with a hint of grapes. It absorbs in seconds and it not sticky or greasy. I can't stand a hand cream that is greasy, I won't wear it. This one leaves my hands feeling very soft and silky.
I will never forget how amazed I was when I first saw a buffer used on my nails. It gives a pretty natural shine that is incredible. It also takes out the damaged look when a layer of your nails peel off. It is super easy to do and doesn't take long. I did go on the hunt for how often I should buff my nails and this is what I found. You can over buff your nails and make them thin and brittle. I read you shouldn't buff more than once a month but admittedly I'm guilty of buffing more often. I love this buffer it works very well and the instructions are written on it! I can't tell you how many times I had to guess what side to use first. This one has step one, two, and three right on the front so there is no guess work.
The nail file is a normal sturdy file that works well, like a nail file that's not much else to really say about that. I will add it doesn't rip my nails or make them jagged like some files I have used.
Gratiae also has lots of skin care products so you're bound find sometihng you love.
