Anchor & Heart Lacquer-Siren's Cure Cuticle Cream

It also contains super ingredients OptiMSM and DMAE, known for their anti-inflammatory, skin healing, and toning properties.

The creme I received was in the scent of Blue Razz Slush and reminded me of a Blue Slush Puppy. The creme works great and I use it at least twice a day the past few weeks. A little goes a long way and I still have a good amount left from the 1oz jar after 3 weeks of use. Photos below shows my nails before applied and the 2nd photo shows it about 10min after I applied it.

The Mermaid Tears I received came in the scent Root Bear and smelled pretty close to it. Due to swatching I can't really test a rehab product out long term since I'm having to do my nails numerous times a day,every day however I did use this numerous times as a ridge filling base coat for under cream and metallic polishes and it hid my ridges well.

The Iron Anchor I received came in the scent Strawberry Kiwi and smelled sweet and fruity. Aside from the cuticle creme this is my favorite from the line. I use this now in place of my OPI Nail Envy which I have used for many years. I never keep my nails naked as it leaves them too exposed to water and risk the chance of cracks and breaks so after every swatch session each day I apply 2 coats of this, making sure to wrap my tips and apply it under the free edge as well. As you can see from the photos my free edge has become pretty opaque were as prior to using this they were pretty much see through and had white spots through out(due to not really taking care of my nails during my month off back in May). I plan on continuing to use this one to help protect my nails and I highly recommended it to those who have nails prone to cracks or breaks, but you must remember to use it as described and as a routine for it to work properly. Can also be used under any mani just like any other base coat.

The Sea Glass I received came in the scent Baby Shark which had a tropical tone to it. This dries with a satin like finish and I have been using quite often for my nail art and swatching. This is not a fast dry so I personally use a fast dry top coat first, let fully dry then apply the matte top coat and let that dry completely.
