The Top Ten Award Tag

I was tagged by the lovely and talented Art Evolve to do the Top Ten Award Tag! I love tags and this is a fun one so here are the questions:

1. Favorite Cuticle Cream: I am a big fan of the Dr. Dobb's Tropical Blend Cuticle and Nail Salve with mango and lemon butter. It's a solid balm  that comes in a cute tin and it smells divine! I just love it! 

2. Favorite Cuticle Something Else (lol): For intense hydration and an overnight miracle for dry cracked cuticles I really love California Mango Mend. This stuff is an overnight wonder. I swear if your cuticles are beat up and dry from too much acetone or the cold weather just dab a little of this stuff on before bed and you'll wake up with noticeably hydrated skin. It's a holy grail product for me. 

3. Favorite Perfume: I am going to go all old school on you now and say Davidoff Cool Water for Women. I have been wearing this perfume since middle school and I still have a bottle on stand by. I think the reason I love it so much is because it just brings back old good memories. I wore it on my first date with my husband and I wore it on our wedding day. It's fresh and clean and for some reason just hits it off really well with my body chemistry. I have many perfumes in my collection but this one consistently appears and I never go without it. Notes: "citrus, pineapple, and woody notes, blended with the scent of ocean air". Honorable mentiones: Aquolina: Pink Sugar, Philosphy: Baby Grace and Pure Grace, Moschino: I Love Love and Donna Karen: Black Cashmere.

4. Favorite Lip Products: I am going to break this down into categories because I am nuts: 
  • Favorite Lip Balm: I am going to have to go with another Dr. Dobb's product here. My favorite lip balm of all time is Dr. Dobb's Peppermint Tingle.  I used to be a huge Burt's Bees lip balm fan until one day at my law school's co-op I picked up Dr. Dobb's Peppermint Tingle; it's been my go to balm every since. It's just like Burt's Bees by more emollient and not as waxy.  It's got a refreshing peppermint scent and it's cooling to the lips. If you ever see it pick it up because it's incredible stuff.  Honorable Mentions: Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm in Original or Lemon/Chamomile. I also love Nivea Lip Balms.
  • Favorite Tinted Lip Balm: I can't get my hands on there here in the US but Labello tinted lip balms are awesome!!! They are the smoothest tinted balms I have ever seen. I won one in a giveaway once and I have been dying for more since.
  • Favorite Gloss: I am not huge on lip gloss but I do like Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Glosses. They're not sticky and come in some really beautiful colors. 
  • Favorite Lip Stick: This is a tough one. I will have to say I miss MAC's Bare Slim Shine, why oh why did they discontinue it! I also love NYX's Thalia Round Lipstick which is only like $3 or less!
5. Favorite Nail Polish Brands: I love so many brands this is a tough one but if I had to pick only one I guess I'd say China Glaze because China Glaze products were some of the first in my collection and they've never let me down. 

6. Favorite Top Coat: I have to go with Seche Vite. I know it thickens and you have to buy Seche Restore or toss 1/2 of the bottle but it's always worked best for me as far as drying time and shine. 

7. Favorite Hand Cream/ Lotion: I am really picky with hand creams because I hate greasy stuff on my handsI love the Bath and Body Works True Blue Spa Shea Cashmere & Silk Hand Cream. It smells lovely and is not greasy at all. 

8. Favorite Base Coat: Nail Life Gripper is a great one and it comes in a giant bottle and isn't very expensive. 

9. Current Favorite Nail Polish Collection: This is so hard! Why must I be put on the spot!?!?! This year I really loved OPI's Pirates of the Caribbean Collection so I'll go with that! I loved all of the colors in that one.

10. Favorite Facial Moisturizers: Easy, for me it's Paula's Choice Skin Balancing Moisture Gel. It feels so nice!!!!!!!!!!!!
