Essie as a brand seems to be either a “love it” or “hate it” kind of situation. I am firmly in the “love it” camp. I have tiny fingernails and I really appreciate Essie’s minute little brushes. I’m also a big fan of their formula in general. Essie’s Fall 2016 collection is an interesting one. […]Read more "Essie – Playing Koi"

Continuing the ILNP 2016 Summer Shimmers collection, we’re going to take a look at The Boulevard. The Boulevard is an unusual shade choice for summer but I’m definitely digging it! I tend to favor dark nail colors in general so it’s fun to have an excuse to pull one out when it’s still 100 degrees […]Read more "ILNP – The Boulevard"
Next up from the Summer 2016 Shimmers collection from ILNP is the lovely Ruby Sky! Ruby Sky is a blurple color. In some light it’s cobalt blue and in other light it’s a deep purple. In any light it has a gorgeous red shimmer. From the ILNP website: Ruby Sky is a seriously rich blue […]Read more "ILNP – Ruby Sky"

This manicure is actually from a couple of weeks ago but I’m behind on my polish posts. This polish is really such a gorgeous shade. It reads as a […]Read more "Essence Amazed By You – Nail of the Week"
Do people still pinch each other for lack of green attire on St. Paddy’s Day? That was totally a thing when I was growing up. In honor of the patron saint of Ireland and his green tinged day, I have a nail polish from Sinful Color’s 2016 St. Patrick’s Day collection. The collection is called […]Read more "Sinful Colors – San Francisco – Happy St. Paddy’s Day!"
Today we’re wrapping up this round of ILNP nail polish posts and we’re going to finish with a bang! Do you love flaky polishes? Holographic polishes? How about metallics? Or maybe you’re more of a neutral kind of person? Well if you said yes to any or all of those, Cozy Mittens might just be […]Read more "ILNP – Cozy Mittens"
ILNP totally has me figured out. Every so often they’ll send me a cute little email with a sneaky little coupon and I mean honestly, who can resist a coupon? Clearly not me. Before I delve into the photos of Diablo, I want to just share a couple of photos of the packaging on this […]Read more "ILNP – Diablo"
Since the Retro Revival Collection is limited edition, I thought I would bundle the two shades I purchased into one post so you can see them before this collection actually disappears. It’s so unlike me to review things before they get discontinued. Exciting! Starry Starry Night Starry Starry Night reminds me of a nail polish […]Read more "Essie Retro Revival Collection – Sequin Sash and Starry Starry Night"
