In my most recent haul, I purchased two of the fall 2015 nail polishes from Essie. I’d actually been hunting for Leggy Legend for about a week before I found it. This color was made for me. Seriously, I really dig it. “So shiny, so chrome.” This was really perfectly acceptable after one coat. I […]Read more "NOTW – Essie Leggy Legend"
Pastel purple is not perhaps the most flattering shade for me (Hello lobster hands!). But I love purple so I wear it anyway. I’m a rebel yo. Essie Full Steam Ahead is a cream finish with very faint shimmer particles and it applies quite well and wears quite well. This photo is two coats over […]Read more "NOTW: Essie Full Steam Ahead"
I know that black creme nail polish is pretty easy to find and most polish lines carry them. However, aengland‘s black creme polish is really nice. Camelot is very nearly a one coater and if you are even slightly more skilled in polish application than I am (I do hope for your sake that you […]Read more "NOTW: aengland Camelot"
I’m sorry. All my nail polishes are limited edition or discontinued! I don’t even know how that happens, but it’s just the way it is. But I’m gonna show you my nails of the week anyway because nail polish is fun! And because maybe you forgot about that obnoxious orange nail polish you have in […]Read more "NOTW: Orly Ablaze (Limited Edition Summer 2014)"
My nails are normally of the teeny tiny stubby squared off variety but I’ve recently had the opportunity to grow them out into full blow Tyrannosaurus Rex claws. It’s amazing and terrifying and ridiculously impractical all at the same time. Behold my dinosaur claws of the week! At the time that I’m writing this, I’ve […]Read more "Essie Bikini So Teeny + Sally Hansen Pearl Crush in Shell and Tell – Claws of the week"
This week I’m back to wearing a polish that has been discontinued. If you REALLY love this polish you can still find it on Amazon and whatnot and if you have this sitting neglected in your collection, maybe this will inspire you to pull Lubu Heels out and take it for a spin again! OPI […]Read more "NOTW: China Glaze – Lubu Heels"
Today’s nail polish is actually a permanent shade that is easily accessed at your nearest drugstore! Now isn’t that nice. Essie Fiji White based pastels can sometimes be a little tricky during application and Fiji is no exception. It’s not difficult or bad it just has a tendency to apply a little streaky. I usually […]Read more "Essie Fiji"
Over The Top was a limited edition so I’m sorry to be a tease. Although the color is insanely pretty, if you don’t have this, you’re not missing a damn thing formula wise. STREAKS. FOR. DAYS. Do you have a similar nail color? If so how’s the formula? I adore this bright limeade color but […]Read more "NOTW – Formula X Over The Top (and a tiny bit of Essie Bikini So Teeny)"
OPI My Vampire is Buff makes such a pretty base color for nail art. (Hahaha! I don’t do nail art. I do dots sometimes…but not so much nail art. You want to see actual nail art? Check out Lady Crappo, she has some serious skills) Base Coat: OPI Nail Envy Three coats of OPI My […]Read more "Neutral Rainbow Dot Triangle….ALL THE THINGS! Nail of the week."
Do you have those colors or finishes of nail polish that just make you happy? Glam Bot does that for me. It’s a bright bubblegum pink with pretty strong linear holographic goodness and it’s just so darn pretty! Glam Bot wears ok, I had minor chipping after about four days which is kind of in […]Read more "Nail Nation 3000 – Glam Bot"
