Smells like cherry cough drops…
Weird, but cool.
Really, if you think about it, who says cuticle oil can’t smell like cherry cough drops (intentionally or not)? Is there a law that limits cuticle moisturizing fragrances to a list of pre-approved scents (lavender: approved; orange: approved; cherry cough drops: UNAPPROVED!)?
I don’t think so — which is great, because at least cherry cough drops are interesting.
Nicole by OPI Oil to Go cuticle and nail moisturizer ($7.99) has interesting packaging, too. Designed for on-the-go gals, it looks almost like a lipgloss in its tube.
Twist off the pink cap, squeeze the tube, and watch in awe as the oil feeds through the brush applicator tip. Then mumble to yourself, “Why the heck didn’t I think of that?!”
No, really, why didn’t I think of that? Nothing makes me grumpier than finding a spilled bottle of CND Solar Oil at the bottom of a Kate Spade purse. So yeah — Oil to Go’s leak-resistant packaging is a stroke of genius.
As for the oil itself — also pretty dope. It’s thick and moisturizing enough to soften the beef jerky cuticles on my fingers and toes and perfect for on-the-go touchups because the product doesn’t drip all over the place.
Plus, it smells like cherry cough drops!!
