China Glaze - Happy Go Lucky

Second post today, hello again! It’s been a bit muggy, cloudy and rainy around here so I wanted to bring some sunshine my way. I used the super fun and cheery, China Glaze - Happy Go Lucky.


This is my absolute favorite yellow. There are a couple of others on the market but, I prefer this one so much more. This color is absolutely perfect for summer and it’s one that just makes you happy to look at. True to its name to its full potential. Easy to apply as well, I used two coats.

I hope you girls love this color as much as I do. It’s simply adorable. So, go on and give it a try. Let me know what you think.

Thank you all for reading, I hope you’ve enjoyed this post.

China Glaze - Salsa

Hi y’all! I hope you’ve all been great since our last post. Although, I haven’t really been able to upload any new post, I’ve kept up with our mani marathon! So, in light of that, today I will be posting twice!


To start, I have to admit, I’m experiencing two extreme emotions. One, relief and the other happiness. Now, I don’t know about how you girls are about finding the perfect shade of red nail polish but for me, this has been something that has taken some years. I can finally say that I have found just the perfect shade of red nail polish! China Glaze - Salsa is just wonderful. I love how this color looks on my skin tone, I love its opacity, and most of all, I love how easy it is to apply. I used two coats of polish and was free of streaks. Simply fabulous.

If you haven’t given this color a try I strongly suggest you do. It really is a beautiful shade of red.

Essie - Picket Fence

Hello everyone and a happy Wednesday to you all! I hope that your week is going by nicely. As for me, I’m a little under the weather. Trying to get over it as soon as possible. Hopefully I’ll be as good as new soon.


Now for day 4 of our mani marathon, I wanted to go with something classic. There’s a certain aspect of classic-ness when you’re a little girl and you think about your life when you get older. At least for me, I thought about being married, having a family, a pretty house with a garden and… a white picket fence surrounding my home. So, in light of that, I used Essie - Picket Fence. Now let me tell you, this color is so darn perfect. It's not completely opaque, it does have some translucence to it. The good thing about this color is that, if you want to use it as an alone color you can, or you can also use it as a color for a french manicure. It's translucent enough that the white tip of the french shows.


I fully recommend this color to anyone that likes how it looks in the photograph. I used two coats.

I hope you’ve all enjoyed this post. Thank you all for reading.

Essie - 2013 Summer Collection

Hey everyone! Happy Monday! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and that the week ahead is pleasant and quick. On this third day of our Mini Mani Marathon, I wanted to go ahead and introduce Essie’s new 2013 Summer Collection. A variation of six colors all with maritime themed names. So sit back and relax and enjoy your passage to paradise as we sail into these beautiful summer colors!


 Naughty Nautical
So beginning with the color for which the collection is named after, Naughty Nautical is the most beautiful blue-green teal on the market! It has a soft shimmer throughout the polish that adds just the perfect touch of vibrant color and soft sparkle. This color truly is spectacular and is going to be a part of my collection for sure. I love it! It has a nice thick consistency so it covers really well. I used two coats in the picture below.

 

The More The Merrier
Next up, we have The More The Merrier. How fun is this juicy lime green?!? I really makes me want to just take a bite out of it of how yummy it looks! Pair it with your favorite bikinis, sarongs and flip flops because this color is a total hit! I absolutely love it! Another great one with amazing consistency, rich and creamy and a non-streaker (hehe). Perfection in a bottle! Two coats of polish were used in the below picture.



Sunday Funday
Fun and risky just like the perfect summer cocktail! There’s no doubt that every will be a fun day indeed with this little tangerine crush coral polish. Sunday Funday has the lightest bit of shimmer included just like Naughty Nautical. However, the shimmer does not alter the polish color or consistency at all. On the contrary, I think it makes it even more beautiful if that is even possible. This color should be a part of everyone’s summer essentials! I used two coats in the picture below.



Full Steam Ahead
Some might say, “Oh look another purple”, but you know what, these purple colors are always in style and they go so well with many colors. So in a way I am happy that new purples are always filtering through the market. Full Steam Ahead is such a pretty light shimmery lilac that goes well with a bright, vibrant set of clothes or with a classic LBD. It’s adorable. Covers well as well. I used two coats in the picture below.



The Girls Are Out
This color is a beauty! Aside from being one of the most popular colors for this upcoming season, it’s simply gorgeous! With it’s funny name (that can mean a couple of different things, teehee) The Girls Are Out is the perfect fuchsia with the most subtle shimmer. This color goes well with the others in the collection as well so you can make your own nail art designs and it’ll all go perfectly together. The consistency again, just like the other colors in the collection, is as opaque as the next one. I used two coats in the picture below.



Rock The Boat
This periwinkle powder blue gives you the impression that you’re looking into the skies infinite distance while relaxing, laying on a hammock. You cannot go wrong Rock The Boat and its shimmer during summer, they’re the perfect combination. Although light, it’s also non-streaky and provides an even coat of polish when applied. I used two coats of it.



Overall, I found this collection to be absolutely perfect in all sense of the word. It truly has the most perfect summer colors. I'm so happy that you and I will be enjoying these this season.

I hope you've all enjoyed this post, thank you all for reading!

China Glaze - Dance Baby

Hi everyone! So it’s day two of our mini mani marathon and I had posted a picture on our Instagram with five different colors on my nails and many of you commented on which you thought was the prettiest. Thank you so much for commenting! I went ahead and chose China Glaze - Dance Baby which was the color used on my thumb. This polish was a complete surprise. I honestly did not think that it was going to be this nice when I used it. Boy was I wrong! It’s such a fun and flirty pink that instantly makes you want to smile when you look at it. It’s not streaky at all and it provides some really nice coverage.



I know there are a lot of pinks out on the market but I really like this one. I think it’s perfect for summer and I’m really happy I gave it a try.

Thank you all for reading, I hope you’ve enjoyed this post! Until tomorrow!

Essie - Mesmerize

Hi everyone! So, I want to take a moment and apologize for pulling a disappearing act on everyone. It’s been a tad bit crazy around here and we’ve been playing catch-up with some things, including this blog. So, we thought that it’d be a nice idea to make up for our absence by posting every day this week! Yikes! One of the posts will be of Essie’s new summer 2013 collection. But for now, we will begin our daily upload marathon with one of the most popular colors there is out there and one key essential to my nail polish collection, Essie-Mesmerize. 




I went with this color specifically today because it matched perfectly with my nephew’s Captain America themed birthday party, which we’re celebrating today. 3 years old. Incredible how times flies. Back to the nail polish, you just can’t go wrong with this color. It’s one of those beautiful blues that draws the attention of everyone. I highly recommend this color to anyone who is willing to try it. It’s rich and creamy formula prevents it from being streaky and you’re all set with two coats. Go on and give it a try!

I hope you’ve all enjoyed this post, thank you all for reading!
