Tonight I have a very important post on products that don't get talked about enough on blogs: nail care and implements. Cricket Beauty Hardware and Phuse Beauty were kind enough to send me these products to try out, so I've been using these the past several weeks. 

Phuse Beauty sort of reminds me a little of Jamberry in that they have parties where you can learn more about their products and purchase anything you're interested in. They have a wide variety of beauty products that include haircare and makeup brushes. The Push It Cuticle Pusher is now my holy grail cuticle product. I have always used plastic or wooden orange sticks to push my cuticles back, but they tend to wear down after a couple of uses. Sure, they are cheap, but if they don't work perfectly and I have to continually buy more, what's the point? This stainless steel version has a squared off end, and a rounded edge that will never dull and can easily be sterilized. When I use this with the Blue Cross Cuticle Remover from Sally's Beauty Supply (which comes in a HUGE container...I will never run out of this stuff), my cuticles stand no chance. My cuticles grow fairly quickly, so I have to use this pretty often. You don't necessarily need to have a Phuse Beauty Representative (but you can host a party yourself if you are interested) to order online. You can find out more on their Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages. 

The next product I have to show is a bit pricey, I understand. I bought a cuticle nipper from Revlon last year, but the clip that allows it to close broke off about a month before I received the Cricket Beauty Hardware one. In other words, it was perfect timing. I know that many people who do their own manicures at home do not use cuticle nippers because you can easily get infections from over-nipping. I happen to use one when I have a hangnail or a piece of dried cuticle that needs removed. One thing that really sets this cuticle nipper apart is how sharp it is. I can easily get close to the spot to cut, and I have had no issues with cutting my skin. So these are around $39, but even the cheapest ones will be over $10 from the drugstore. You only need one pair, and I'm sure these will last much longer than the Revlon ones I bought. The spring on the Cricket nippers are much sturdier and are made with stainless steel. You can find these at select Ulta stores, as well as other beauty locations in your area. Just stop by their website and enter your zipcode to find a full list of stores. You can find out more about Cricket tools on their Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages.
