Smokey Mountain Lacquer Cuticle Oil Review

Greetings and Nailutations!

*Press Sample*
Over the past 3 weeks I have been testing out a new cuticle oil.  This vegan-friendly cuticle oil is from Smokey Mountain Lacquers.  My typical cuticle care routine involves A LOT of cuticle oil.  I apply cuticle oil in the morning, throughout the work day, anytime after washing my hands and between swatching after I’ve used harsh polish remover on my nails.  I always apply the cuticle oil straight to my cuticles and massage in to the surrounding skin as well (as the skin takes a beating too).  Photo below courtesy of Smokey Mountain Lacquers.

Smokey Mountain Lacquers Cuticle Oil contains Sweet Almond Oil, Clear Jojoba Oil, Coconut Oil, Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Argan Oil and Vitamin E.  Please take note that we can pronounce all the ingredients!  Let’s proceed with my tests:
Smell Test: unscented – nothing to smell, which was perfectly fine with me.
Feel Test: not greasy at all, absorbed fully in about 10-15 minutes.  After applying a liberal amount I was able to snap my fingers – that is how non-greasy it is.  I loved that I could apply it, put my base coat(s) on, apply polish, apply topcoat and by the time I got to taking photos, the oil was absorbed and not too shiny in a photo.
Loves: I have noticed a change with my cuticles – I did not have to use cuticle remover over the last 3 weeks (I usually use it once a week or once every 1.5 weeks) and I received several compliments on my cuticles.  The prices is very affordable as well and a little goes a long way.
Buy Again?  YES!  The product is amazing.  The only wish I have is for travel-friendly applicators (roller ball or cuticle pen) as the small bottles with brushes are a danger to the clumsy (ie me….I may have almost knocked it over a few times – but luckily I have the reflexes of a cat!).  I actually placed my cuticle oil in my old Julep applicator so that I can take it with me in my purse to work and on the go!

Here are some photos over the last week of using Smokey Mountain Lacquers Cuticle Oil for 3 weeks.
