Review: Anna Sui nail care oil

I'm a bit of a cuticle product fanatic so I'm always on the lookout for new products to try. I love trying balms, oils, butters.. you name it. So how could I resist when I discovered this ABSO-FREAKING-LUTELY BEAUTIFUL limited edition Anna Sui nail care oil when I was in Hong Kong last year?! Ok ok I admit I'm biased though because I adore anything and everything Anna Sui especially when it comes to her nail products.

The oil is housed in the beautiful signature Anna Sui dress shaped bottle which is very easy to hold and use considering the shape. The oil contains three tiers in purple, light pink and a bright pink - my favourite colours and just so girlie! It smells like roses as her other products do but I found it quite subtle compared to the other liquid based products I've tried from her makeup range.

The brush is flat and square - which for a polish I would most likely find a bit difficult to use and to get a clean finish but for a cuticle oil it's not a problem.

To use it, you need to give it a gentle shake to mix the 3 layers which forms a milky lavender shade. The formula is absolutely fantastic - it's wonderfully moisturising, non-sticky and most importantly very fast absorbing. When the sales assistant tried it out on me I was so surprised at how smooth the oil felt and how quickly it absorbed leaving my fingers feeling and smelling lovely and rose-y. A little goes a very long way and you only need a small swipe to hydrate your entire cuticle. The formula is silicone based and contains plant-derived squalene and smooth oil to lock in moisture and hydrate.

Overall: I am absolutely head over heels in love with the Anna Sui nail care oil. It smells amazing, absorbs quickly and is just so so beautiful! I can't recommend it enough and it's a must buy if you come across it. It's a bit on the pricier side at about $18Aus but a little goes a long way and it's Anna Sui. Enough said!

Details: I purchased my bottle from the Anna Sui stand at LCX in Harbour City in Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong for $130HK (so about $18Aus). I found it available online from Urban Outfitters and for $16US and for $22US.
