Today I’m showing off my new favorite matte-effect topcoat: AGO Matte-ict. The effect of this topcoat isn’t “chalky” like essie matte about you, it seems like a mix between that and a waxy topcoat. I absolutely adore it though! Here is one coat of Matte-ict over AGO Berries & Cream:

I also received for review AGO’s new Sweet Nectar cuticle oil in Sangria. The scent is divine – a bit of spicy grape. But it isn’t overwhelming to my sensitive nose either. It comes in a tube, like a lip gloss would come in, with a long handle and a doe-foot applicator. At first, I wasn’t sure how I would like it, but it turns out that it’s genius! The doe-foot allows there to be enough oil on it to do all four fingers & thumb on one hand (without spilling a drop!).
The staying power of the cuticle oil is impressive as well. Before bed, I usually lotion my hands and then apply cuticle oil. When I did this with Sweet Nectar cuticle oil, I woke up the next morning with wonderful smelling hands and cuticles that weren’t dry at all! I’ve been using this every night for the past five days, and here are my nails & cuticles this morning:
I’m in the midst of testing AGO Magpie Shine (shiny topcoat), and when I’m done testing that, expect a review! Make sure you check out the pretties at A Girl Obsessed etsy shop, and keep up with her on facebook, instagram, and twitter.
What are your thoughts about the matte-effect topcoat, and the cuticle oil? I’d love to know! Until the next time,
