KBShimmer Mani Shot & Cuticle Oil in Chai Tea

Good morning!  I have a nail related post for you today and I hope you enjoy it!  KBShimmer released their Fall 2015 collection last week (you can see my post HERE) as well as a restock of Mani Shots!  I have a Mani Shot and Cuticle Oil in Chai Tea to share with you today.  I do enjoy the scent (and flavor) of a good cup of chai tea so I knew I'd be a fan of this scent.  KBShimmer has Mani Shot available in a variety of scents for $1.95 each.  You can also pick up Cuticle Oil Pens for $6 each.  So let's jump in and see what these products are like!

KBShimmer makes many products to go along with their polish.  2 of which are the Mani Shot and Cuticle Oil Pens

The Mani Shots come in a small plastic cup, about the size of a shot glass.  The actual product is densely packed into the cup.

The "shot" didn't come out easily.  I had to push on the bottom of the cup until the plastic broke.  Then the shot slid out.

The shot fizzled up immediately and was completely dissolved within about 2 minutes.  The scent was a bit spicy, like chai tea is, but it was also quite light.  I didn't notice it while sitting there soaking my hands, I had to put my nose closer to the bowl to get a good whiff.

I soaked my hands for 10 minutes.  I found the Mani Shot more on the light moisturizing side compared to other similar products I have tried.  The oils sunk into my hands/fingers quickly and didn't leave behind any slimy or sticky residue.  Because the actual Mani Shot had a light scent, it was also very faint on my hands.

The Chai Tea scented cuticle oil comes in an easy to use click pen. just a few clicks to get the oil out on to the brush.  Couldn't be more simple to use or toss in your purse for use through out the day.

I found the Chai Tea Cuticle Oil Pen more strongly scented than the Mani Shot and I could it slightly spicy and warm, a great Fall scent.  It was easy to apply to cuticles and rubbed in well to fully moisturize my fingers/nails.  Any leftover oil absorbed quickly.

So there it is!  Have you tried Mani Shots or Cuticle Oil Pens?  What's your favorite scent?
