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.
Hi everyone! Today’s manicure starts out with Quo by Orly Always Chic. This is the exact same polish as Orly Beautifully Bizarre from the new Spring 2016 Melrose Collection.
Hi everyone! Today’s manicure is an oldie but new to me. An awesome friend from the MUA nail board got this and sent it to me!
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!
Hey everyone! I’m finally getting a few minutes to do my post today!
Just a quick update to yesterday’s gorgeous mani. Today I added a coat of Wet N Wild Matte Top Coat to yesterday’s mani of Dance Legend Fresh 77, Essie Shine of the Times, & Orly Green Flakie Topcoat. It’s still very overcast today. The perfect backdrop to taking gorgeous flakie pictures.
Hey everyone! Today I have a gorgeous flakie mani to share with you all. I can’t stop looking at my nails. I hope my pictures show the true beauty that makes up this mani!!
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!).
