3 Empties: CoCo Base Coat, Gem Glam Top Coat Lavender and TBD

Greetings and Nailutations,

It's another installment of 3 empties, where I review 3 products I have used up and express my opinion on how well they worked, how well they smelled, their packaging and if I'd make a repeat purchase.

First product I used up is CoCo Nail Lacquer's Milky Base Coat.  I first used this base coat upon initially receiving it as a press sample.  I like that it's fast drying and has a white tint, because this helps hide visible nail line with lighter more sheer polishes.  I loved wearing it alone as well.

Smell Test: Smells like polish!
Feel Test:  Loved how this looked on my nails alone and under polish.  Worked great.
Packaging Test:  I like the clear labeling so that I can see how much of the product I have left.
Buy Again:  Yes!  But I'm not sure it's offered anymore.  Sorry for the teasing

I also emptied my Gem Glam Top Coat from Dream Polish in the scent of Lavender.  As previously mentioned, Gem Glam for me is shiny, fast drying and always goes on smooth.  This is my go to top coat.

Smell Test:  Lavender scent is floral and soft, almost 'soapy' smelling.  It was pleasant, but I prefer Summer Melon, Pink Sugar and Peach over it.
Feel or Look Test: Shiny, applies easily
Packaging:  Best part of the packaging is the nice wide brush
Buy Again: Yes yes, but would probably pass on this scent!  Bought the new spring scents to test them out!

The last product for this post is a bath bomb from Fortune Cookie Soap Company.  To be honest, Fortune Cookie Soap Company is my new OBSESSION!  I bought the winter box last year and I loved some of the products so much, I ordered more products in the scents I liked.  This bath bomb is in a scent I loved.  The bath bomb was a blue star and called I Pledge Allegiance, Amen! (product scents for the winter box were inspired by the National Lapoon's Christmas Vacation movie).  What I loved best....the blue did NOT cause staining in the tub!  WOO HOO!  Less cleaning after a relaxing bath is ALWAYS good.

Smell Test: clean crisp, I like this scent in the bath bomb and the shower steamers best.
Feel or Look Test: Dissolved easily and didn't stain the tub!
Packaging: Came in a labeled wax bag.
Buy Again: YES, but this scent isn't carried anymore since it was just for the winter box.  But, the winter box is what made me fall in love with Fortune Cookie Soap Company.

Have you tried any of these products?  Did you have similar or different experiences than I did?

Happy Polishing,
