Creations By Lynda Firefly and Honeysuckle Cuticle Oil

Hello Lovelies! Lynda has created a wonderful cuticle oil that I've been using over the last two weeks and she's come up with a gorgeous new summer line called the Bon Temps, "inspired by the infamous New Orleans phrase "laissez les bon temps rouler", which translates to let the good times roll!". I have pics and info to share. So...
I'm ready to roll. Are you?

This is Creations By Lynda Firefly.
Firefly is a true fluorescent yellow crelly that looks absolutely stunning over white polish. Without white underneath, Firefly would be quite transparent. And I am a big fan of making my polishes POP, so I took the obvious route--white undies! ^.^ 
To create this mani, I began with one solid coat of FP Paper Mache and covered it with a thin layer of Seche Vite. The Seche Vite helped lock in the white to keep it from pulling away into the neon Firefly.
Firefly applied absolutely perfectly. I have some serious LOVE for this polish!
After I finished applying three delicious (it looks edible, like lemon pie filling) coats, I realized that two would have been just fine. @.@
 I used one coat of Seche Vite as topcoat and to help speed the drying process.
If you haven't figured it out yet, I am a HUUUUGE fan of this polish. If you love neons, you must hurry and get yours asap!
The next thing I want to talk about is Creations By Lynda Cuticle Oil.

(Creations By Lynda picture) 
It is available in 5 scents (as well as unscented): Plumeria, Pina Colada, Honeysuckle, Love Spell, and Peach Nectar. 
 The Cuticle Oil is made from Safflower Seed Oil, Fractionated
Coconut Oil, Avocado Oil, Grapeseed Oil ,
Sesame Seed Oil , Olive Oil, Soybean Oil ,
Aloe Vera Leaf Extract , Jojoba Seed Oil ,
& Vitamin E.
(Additional ingredients for essential oils added
for scents will vary.)
Lynda also states, "If you have any allergies
please contact me for a list of ingredients in
the scents or order unscented".
I have been using Creations By Lynda Honeysuckle Cuticle Oil twice a day over the last two weeks and so far, I am really happy with the results. 
I've been using the oil after I apply my polish and before I go to bed.**
This is a pic before I began using the Cuticle Oil.
And my post today after two weeks of using the Cuticle Oil.

When I apply the oil, I apply it directly on my cuticles, up the sides of my nails, and inside the base of the tips. Once I've applied the oil to one hand, I take a few minutes to massage the oil into each finger gently. Then I repeat this on the other hand. It takes a little while for the oil to absorb into my skin, however, the results (and the sweet, but not too sweet scent) make the time spent well worth it.
