Happy Friday! I feel like I’ve been extra brain dead this last week so I’m glad to have fewer mental demands on my poor gray matter. 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"
Rimmel has completely changed their polish line since this shade was released many moons ago. So sadly, we’re looking at another discontinued nail polish but I’m actually hoping that you can tell me what some contemporary alternatives to this shade would be. I can’t really find anything similar in my collection and to my knowledge […]Read more "NOTW – Rimmel Rags to Riches"
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"
There are few things I love more in a nail polish than a holographic effect. As far as holographic glitter goes, Revlon has really done a great job with this one. The glitter is dense enough that a scattered holo effect can be achieved with a few coats. With three coats this is just stunning! […]Read more "Revlon Transforming Effects Topcoat in Holographic Pearls – NOTW"
Essie seems to be a “love it or hate it” kind of brand. I fall squarely in the “love it” camp and Demure Vix just reinforces my positive opinion of the brand as a whole. Demure Vix is a nude mauve with a slight lavender duo-chrome that is subtle and sophisticated. Basically this is a […]Read more "NOTW: Essie Demure Vix"
There are many black cream polishes out there but a-england’s Camelot is my favorite. It applies like a dream, wears for days (seriously, seven days before I saw a tiny little chip and seven days PLUS hauling loads of firewood before there was any tip wear)and is nearly a one coater if you’re skilled in […]Read more "NOTW: Rainbow Glitter Jelly Goodness"
