Not Nail-Related

Hello, everybody!  I know it's been a long time since I posted.  I do have a bunch of stuff to try that I just haven't gotten around to yet, but my pregnancy and now having a newborn has put blogging on the back burner.  Today, though, I have a bit of a sore throat because the weather has been shifting from hot and humid to cool and dry.  We do have a humidifier, which helps quite a bit, but we don't always remember to run it.  So, in light of my ailment (and the fact that I just finished a lat night feeding), I thought I would pass along one of my favorite things to soothe a sore throat.  It's super simple, and you likely already have everything you need!  I thought for a long time that everybody knew about this, but I've recently seen several people surprised at the suggestion, so I thought I'd share.

A Quick Update

Hey, everybody!  Long time no write, I know...  On the up side, though, I do plan on coming back with new swatches very soon!  I placed two orders yesterday, and I just put undies down for what should be a fun dotticure.  I just wanted to let you all know that everything is fine with me, and now that the nausea of the first trimester has (mostly) subsided, I do plan on getting back into the swing of regular manis and posts.  Thanks again for bearing with me!

First Impressions - The Body Shop Sweet Almond Oil Nail Varnish Remover

Hey, guys!  Sorry about my little hiatus there.  The nausea and fatigue does seem to be improving little by little, so I am hoping to get back into the swing of things very soon!  Today I picked up The Body Shop's Sweet Almond Oil Nail Varnish Remover, which I've heard some pretty good stuff about!  I emptied it into my flip-top pump before taking a photo, but at least you can see how it's packaged.
I will say right off the bat that it's pretty pricey for the size ($10 for 3.3 ounces).  It does not have a strong or unpleasant odor, which is a fantastic change of pace after finishing off the Nailtiques remover I wrote about in my remover comparison post last month.  It actually has a sweet fragrance that strikes me as vanilla-ish.  You can definitely still smell the alcohol in it, but overall it's a nice scent.  I'm using it on my nails as I type, so you're pretty much getting a play-by-play here.  Isn't that exciting?  I'm noticing now that the smell is actually pretty nice once you've got it on a cotton ball and the alcohol vapors dissipate.  The three nails I've done so far have come off nice and easy.  There is a bit of oily residue left behind, but it really feels like it's hydrating my nails and cuticles.  Working on my accent nail is proving a bit difficult, but that's to be expected since I used a glitter topper.  I'm not totally sold on the ten dollar price tag for such a small amount of product, but my first impression is that the product itself is really nice.  I might really love it after a few uses!
