Baroness X Valentine's Polish, Sugared Baubles, and Matte Cuticle Balm

Press Sample

Happy almost Friday, dear readers! I hope you are having a wonderful day! It seems crazy to me that this month is quickly approaching the end already and I'm spending so much time thinking about Valentine's Day already. I got my husband a REALLY nice coffee roaster for this past Christmas, and because of the expense, it's his Christmas, Valentine's Day, birthday, and anniversary present. Even though we don't typically do anything big for Valentine's Day, I still like to get him something small; guess I don't have to worry about figuring out gifts for him for a little while! Yes!!!

For today's blog post, I wanted to share with you the Valentine's Day offerings by Demi from Baroness X. Let me entice you with my favorite staging photo ever and then get into the details, shall we? Let's do this!
The Baroness X Valentine's Day is all about wine and roses!

Vino y Rosas
Three coats plus top coat

A mauve holo polish with violet and blue glass micro flakies that shift to red and bronze also twinkling about like little bubbles are thin gold holo microglitters.

Go ahead and take a moment to stare at this gorgeous colour. I can wait...

One of the blogs that I enjoy reading is My Lacquer Cabinet, and the bloggers have a really cool series on the blog called Polish from a Picture. Vino y Rosas is the polish created by Baroness X from Terra's inspiration photo, and because the shade and the name were so appropriate for the holiday, Demi chose to release it for Valentine's Day. I am glad she decided this polish needed to be shared because it is gorgeous! The base colour is lovely, and I am having so much fun staring at the colour shift of the micro flakies. They are small (hence the name) and it is practically impossible to capture the shift in a single photo, but it is there.

The formula of the polish is perfection! It is on the sheerer side so you'll need three coats to hide the dreaded visible nail line, but the formula is sublime and this polish practically applies itself.

In addition to the polish, the first 40 people that purchase Vino y Rosas will also receive a sample size of Wine & Roses scented Matte Cuticle Balm and Sugared Baubles (1 large and 2 small). Sugared Baubles are solid sugar scrubs containing various butters, oils, soap and sugar. The mini size was created for your hands and large size is to be used in the shower. I get those ugly bumps on the back of my upper arms occasionally, and I even used one of the mini Sugared Baubles on them to smooth my arms this morning. While they seem quite firm, they are a lot of fun to squish with some pressure. The butters and oils work their magic along with the gentle sugar exfoliation to leave your skin smooth with a nice scent afterwards.

Wine and Roses is a custom blended Baroness X scent described as sweet muscat wine, reminiscent of lychee fruit with a touch of english tea roses, a truly addictive floral and fruit scent. I was a little hesitant when I first saw the description as I'm not fond of overly floral scents, but this one is lovely. I didn't find it to be too floral, and the scent left on my skin overall is light and far from overpowering. 

The cost of this polish will be $12 plus S&H. 

Also available in the store will be the full size versions of Wine & Roses scented balm, Royal Oil, and Sugared Baubles.

These selections are all a win for me. Vino y Rosas is gorgeous, and I am really taken with the flashes of colour as I move my nails. The Sugared Baubles remove dead, flaky skin leaving a silky finish behind, and they are just fun to smoosh! I picked up a few containers of Baroness X Matte Cuticle Balm recently, so you know I am in love with this product! It's nice to see a new scent option because if you're like me, you have to have options!

These products will launch on the Baroness X website here on January 24th. You definitely don't want to miss out on these!

Until next time, dear readers, have a wonderful evening!
