The kind folks at Cuccio (my absolute favorite nail products company) were kind enough to send me this box of goodies. When it arrived I was overjoyed to try some old favorites (as well as some new so to be favorites) and I am having a blast trying each and every one of them. Some I was very familiar with as I have used and recommended them for years and others are new to me so I will give you all an honest opinion of the new to me products.
I fell in love with this company and their products when I graduated from cosmetology school. They were the only company that was willing to send me samples of their products to try. I wanted to try as many product lines as possible so that I could give my honest opinion to my clients in recommending the good from the bad and Cuccio was the only company that was willing to send me anything. I have never forgotten that.
There are so many nail products on the market today that it’s hard to tell which are good and which are not so good. As a licensed manicurist I want to try every new product that comes out so that I can give my honest opinion to my clients and whether or not to recommend it.
I have NOT found a Cuccio product that didn’t do what it claims. The Cuccio company is all about the “health” of your nails where most companies are only worried about their bottom dollar. This company truly cares and does not mass product thousands of products in their line. It is a small company with a small line of amazing products. They have been consistent (for as long as I have been dealing with them) in only manufacturing products that are beneficial to your body and nails. This is why I love it so much. This is a company with a consciences.
You all know about my love affair with Cuccio Forte Nail Strengthener and many of you have purchased this product from me after seeing the amazing results I personally have with this product time after time in growing long strong nails. It continues to be my number one product recommendation for over ten (10) years now and I’ve yet to have a client tell me it hasn’t transformed their nails from horrible to healthy.
Cuccio makes a limited number of products which cane me found on their website for viewing. Unfortunately to purchase from them you must be a licensed professional. If you see any product in this review that appeals to you contact me and I can order it for you and have it shipped directly to your home.
The nail polish collection you see in the photo above is from Cuccio’s Positivity Collection. New for spring these beautiful colors look good enough to eat but please don’t they are eye candy for your fingers and toes only! Click on the links below for each individual color and it will bring up a much larger photo so you can appreciate how wonderful these colors truly are.
New to me is Cuccio’s Super 7 Second Reactive Top Coat. However after trying this product it is now my new go-to top coat. Although it did take a little longer to dry than 7 seconds with my test, it dried in less than one minute, which is a lot faster than any other top coat I have used in the past. I have prepared a little video demonstration so you can see how quickly it actually dried on my nails. Cuccio Nail Solutions Professional Super 7 Second Reactive Top Coat is a super quick drying formula that is redefining the way in which you protect your nail color. It creates a high gloss finish with incredible long-lasting durability. It contains photo initiators and fast acting monomers that react with natural light to set-up super fast. Super 7 seals in color by creating a coating that is second to none.

Just a note about products. Dr. Oz did an entire show the other day about FAKE products. I tell people all the time when you buy from places like discount stores and ebay you just never know what you are getting. Salon’s save empty bottles of product (including nail products) and sell them to second class salon’s who fill them with fake and inferior product. This is illegal and not safe for you. Please comment to me all the time that their polish just doesn’t last when they have their manicure doing at a “strip mall” type salon – reason being – the polish in that bottle you think is a name brand product may very well be fake. Just because it’s in a name brand bottle there is no guarantee you are getting what’s on the label. As a licensed professional my product comes directly from the manufacturer or a authorized reseller ONLY. This is the case with my Cuccio Forte Nail Strengthener and any other product I sell.
