My Experience with the TBS Almond Oil Nail and Cuticle Treatment Pen

I don't know if I just got a faulty pen, but I never got more than 10 days of use from this!  I loved it when it worked, made my nails look healthy, but really, I had paid Rs. 745!!  Is it too much to expect this to last at least a month??!




Cost: Rs. 495/1.8 mL

NO, I will not be buying this again.  Even if it was something wrong with the particular pen that I bought, I think paying so much for 1.8 mL of this product is so not worth it at all.

  2. I'll tell you an easy replacement for this..Bring nice almond oil, olive oil..mix the two. Take an old nail polish bottle..wash it properly with nail polish remover and get it rid thoroughly of all the stains..Cleans the brush as well..pour both the above oils in 50-50 ratio in the bottle...whenever get time..take the oil mixture using the brush and apply on nails,cuticles and massage!! ...tadaaaaaaaa!!!.....
    Ingredients needed: 200 bucks for oils, empty nail polish bottle, and loads of cheap nail polish removers!! hee hee hee

  3. You get cuticle treatment oils - loads of brands make them - come prepackaged in nail polish bottles with brush..for around Rs. 200 - so you don't really need to do all that also Cali :D

  10. No Priya, it was not the tester, because the tester has a sticker in green on it, and that the SA was holding and tried it on my hand. But the thing is, its just so less quantity - I should never have bought it anyway!
