Essie Summer 2016 Tropical Lights Collection "Fun Ships" – Swatches and Review


Hi everyone! So, I’m not sure what to make of this collection from Essie that I just found at Shoppers Drug Mart. I wish I could have gotten a picture of the display, but I wrote down what it said. It said Fun Ships Summer 2016 Tropical Lights Collection. I googled and it looks like a couple of these are repromotes from 2008 or so, but I don’t see anything about this collection online at all. Well, I wanted to share it with you anyway.

Mani Update: Jade Diamond – Exuberant & Essie – Shine Of The Times


Hi everyone! For today’s manicure I just updated my Jade Diamond Exuberant mani from a couple days ago. I added just one coat of the dc’d Essie Shine of the Times flakie topcoat. I really love how the flakies pop off this dark purple base color!

Essie Just Stitched – Cashmere Matte Collection

Hey everyone!  Today I’m wearing one of the Essie Cashmere Matte polishes called Just Stitched.  I’ve read horrible things about the formula on this one, but I had no problems at all!!  I started with a base of at home soak off gel.  I didn’t use any other basecoat because this gel makes my nails so smooth – I love it!!  Then I did 2 coats of Just Stitched followed by 1 coat of my quick dry top coat. After a few minutes I added one more coat of Just Stitched and took some pictures.  I did use some cuticle oil before the pictures which caused the matte polish to go kind of satiny.  After taking a few photos I then added my shiny topcoat again because I prefer this polish shiny. It really brings out the shimmer (which I love!).
