I wanted to review my bottle of Nfu-Oh Flower Oil before my nightly usage brought the product level any lower. It's the same corset style bottle as Nfu Oh polishes, but this time containing scented cuticle oil. Towards the bottom of each bottle, dried blossoms are suspended. Gazing inward brings the feeling of looking into a terrarium where tiny flowers can bloom under domed glass. It's enchanting.
The design alone makes it a pleasure to use. I actually keep my bottle of Flower Oil on the cup holder that extends from the tile wall in my bathroom. It's vintage and ceramic instead of being the more modern style that's metal forming an open circle. I perch my bottle where I can enjoy looking at it.
I have used Nfu Oh Flower Oil unfailingly for two weeks when other cuticles products have never garnered such loyalty and attention. CND Rejuvenator is in my medicine cabinet and CND Cuticle Eraser is toted about in my purse. The former I reserve for whims and the latter I use on the train once a week. I travel an hour and a half on the regional rail every Thursday. I commit to spend part of that span tossing things about in my purse for entertainment. Similarly, I apply Cuticle Eraser when I am a passenger on long car rides.
What differentiates Nfu Oh Flower Oil is I genuinely enjoy applying it. The corset top twists off, bringing up a brush laden with rose scented oil. There are other options for fragrance: vanilla, banana, mango, orange, strawberry, bubble gum, peppermint, sunflower, plumeria, lavender, and jasmine. The consistency of the oil is light and it absorbs into the skin easily. I am pleased with the results. Despite almost daily contact with 100% acetone during clean up after polishing, my cuticles are soft and moisturized. Click on any of my manicure photos to see my cuticles under magnification.
I won't say Nfu-Oh has the best formula cuticle oil on the market. I will say they have the most attractive cuticle oil available anywhere and I like having my hands on pretty things. Nfu Oh Flower Oil can be purchased from fabulous street. See link at the sidebar.
