About Talon Juice & Why You Need It
Introducing "Talon Juice", Nail Hoot's own handmade, special cuticle oil blend. This blend is nourishing while absorbing quickly without leaving a greasy residue. We have sourced the best ingredients and use only 100% pure oils.
Oiling regularly is one of the best things you can do to help your condition your nails and to make your manicures look fantastic. Cuticle oil isn't just for your cuticles - make sure you oil the nails too, especially when they are bare (do remove any oil with alcohol immediately prior to painting). Are your fingers in serious disrepair? Then do the 3-day oil challenge: Remove all polish (*gasp* nekkid nails!), and oil at least 6-8 times a day for 3 days (it is recommended to buy at least the pen and mini set for the challenge).
This special blend does contain nut oils, so please check out ingredient list at the bottom before purchasing. This cuticle oil contains no added preservatives, and it is recommended to use the oil in its entirety within 8 months.
Talon Juice is offered in 3 types of containers. We recommend purchasing at least one pen. These click pens have a brush tip and are a great way to easily oil on the go. They also keep oxygen from getting to your cuticle oil base. We also offer the oil in mini (5.5ml) and full (15ml) bottles. The mini bottles have a round brush that works great for oiling the cuticles, and the full bottles have a flat brush that will allow you to oil a larger area at a time. You also have the option to purchase a pen and bottle set. If you would like two different scents for your set, please specify in the notes when you checkout. Some people do refill cuticle oil pens. There are YouTube videos available to help you figure out how to refill and reset a pen. Pens are meant to be one use, but often you can get multiple uses when refilling.
We currently offer six scents to choose from, or unscented. Please be aware that the unscented option will have a slight oily odor due to the ingredients used. We are careful to use skin safe percentages for fragrance oils, so you will find each oil has a light scent that is not overpowering. Please go to this page if you want more in depth information about each specific scent we offer.

Holo ... what? It can be confusing to figure out all the different terms used to describe polish, and some people might define terms differently than you are used to. Here is how we define the terms we use to describe our polishes.
We define chunky glitter as anything that is bigger than micro-sized. These glitters would be easily seen when a polish is applied.
The word crelly is a mixture between cream and jelly. The consistency of a crelly tends to be on the thinner side, but not as thin as a jelly. Many times these crellies contain varying sized glitter. At Nail Hoot, when we use the term crelly, we are always referring to polishes with chunky glitters.
Duochrome polishes appear to shift between two colors when viewed at various angles and lighting.
Flakies are particles that can range from micro to large sized. These particles can be seen in the polish when it is worn. A flakie can compliment a polish, or stand out in contrast. Some flakies (such as UCC) shift colors.
Flash is like a glance of another color within the polish when viewed in various lighting or angles. Flash can be heavy (where the shift would be seen at almost all times), light (every once in a while it will catch your eye), or in between.
Holographic (Scattered Holo, Linear Holo)
Holographic polishes show special color changes when viewed in the direct sunlight.
Linear holographic polishes have color changes that resemble a flame on the nail. This is the most pronounced type of holographic polish.
Scattered holographic polishes have color changes that are scattered throughout the nail. It is typically more of a subtle holographic and does not exhibit a flame.
Jelly polishes tend to be very thin. They're designed to be at least semi-transparent. Sometimes this is because there is glitter one would be unable to see otherwise. Another popular use of jelly polishes is to do nail art in between coats, to give the art a floating look.
Microflakies are flakies with a very small size. They are typically more pronounced than shimmer.
Microglitters are very small glitters that can serve many purposes. Holographic microglitters would give a scattered holographic look. Colored microglitters would give dimension to a polish. Polishes with glitter should always be topped with a layer of topcoat to smooth out the glitters and make the polish shine.
Shimmers are like a special added twinkle in the polish. Shimmer can compliment a polish, or stand out in contrast. Shimmer can be heavy, light, or in between.
UCC stands for Ultra Chrome Chameleon. This special flakie is metallic and has color changing properties.
