Ricky's NYC One-Stop Beauty Shop!

I recently was offered the chance to review a couple items from Ricky's NYC. I have heard of Ricky's before, but I was not aware of just how many different beauty supplies, tools and accessories they carried! Hair care, makeup, skincare, bath and body, with an overwhelming array of products in each category. Of course it took me a little bit of browsing to settle on a couple items :) However, I chose and received the ME Ballet Collection Nail Polish in Tutu Pink and a set of RickyCare No-Frizz Combs. I was really looking forward to trying out the combs especially, as I fight a daily battle with frizz. I love my curly hair, but the frizz gets aggravating! The No-Frizz comes in a variety of combs and brushes, and I received the Rat Tail Comb, Rake and Handle Curved Teeth Comb. The combs are made with a special process that actually bakes olive oil and NANO right into the comb! The resulting comb (or brush) eliminates frizz, adds shine, redistributes your hair's natural oils, and is anti-static! These are absolutely the best combs I have ever used! I can really see a difference in the frizz; while this comb doesn't necessarily make my hair frizz-free, it drastically reduces it. The Handle Curved Teeth comb is my daily stand-by now, and I can't imagine styling or combing my hair with anything else! 

The Pink Tutu Nail Enamel is a very sweet, feminine pink color. I applied this the day my package came in, and the first thing I noticed (aside from the very lovely color) was how fast it dried! Normally I have to wait 15 minutes or so between coats, but this dried super-fast and I was able to get both coats on both hands in a much quicker time. It adds a nice hint of color to my nails without being too bright or bold.
