MELA Bath – From Nature With <3 Bath Bombs

It will come as no surprise that Cuter Cuticles was on my list of tables to stop by at Indie Expo Canada.  Sammy had two limited edition scents I wanted to try (Union and Kensington) plus her new Squattermelon (square-watermelon) mani bombs.  Between the swatches leading up to Indie Expo Canada and all of the polishes I bought at it or have in my to-do pile, my nails need the help! Squattermelon Mani Bombs are made from sodium bicarbonate, citric[Read more]
