STELLA CHROMA - Prickly Pear Duo (Let's Hug & Prickly Pear Sugar Scrub)

Hi everyone! Today I have a custom created by one of my best friends in the nail polish world, Jen from My Nail Polish Obsession, with STELLA CHROMA. 

Jen creates customs with various brands each year to celebrate her birthday/blogiversary and it is SO fun to see what she comes up with each time. I'm lucky enough to own a few of these customs! This April, she created a duo with Pam from STELLA CHROMA called the Prickly Pear Duo inspired by her trip to Sedona, Arizona and the beautiful cacti she saw! You know STELLA CHROMA is one of my absolute favourite brands so this was a no-brainer for me. I just HAD to have this. 

The duo consists of a polish and a small scented sugar scrub. Let's Hug is a green crelly with gold flakes, red shimmer and iridescent shimmer. I used 3 thin coats of this polish due to the crelly formula and pale colour for best coverage. I finished with topcoat. The formula was nice and the shimmers are really unique. I have nothing like this polish and it is so pretty for spring and summer. I already can't wait to wear it again. 

The Prickly Pear scrub has a light, fresh plant scent that is super refreshing. You know I'm a huge fan of Pam's scrubs and this is no exception. I kind of wish it was a permanent scent (*cough cough* hey Pam if you read this...*ahem). The scent lingers on the skin for a while without being overpowering. Perfection. I realised while writing this post that I forgot to take photos of the scrub, hope you don't mind too much!

I'm really sorry to be raving about an unavailable product but I can only encourage you to check out Pam's creations and follow her to keep up with other LE's such as PPU or group customs etc. This sold out super quickly and I only received it a while after, with international muling.
