Delicate Roses

Hi everyone!

What are you up to on this lovely Tuesday? Tonight I’m going to see Panic! At the Disco in concert! Today’s nails were inspired by a design I did earlier this year. I decided to go with a lighter color palette to make it more summery.

I started with a base of Essie Urban Jungle.

I made dots with Essie Madison Ave-hue on the corners of my nail, and used Essie Big Spender to do the details. The leaves were done using Essie Mojito Madness.

I am absolutely in love with this look! I kind of wish that I had applied matte topcoat for a more vintage feel, but I love it shiny too!

Essie | Urban Jungle

Hi everyone!

Happy Monday to you! Today I have Essie’s Urban Jungle to share with you.

Urban Jungle is a pink-toned nude creme. I applied three coats with topcoat.

The formula was runny and pretty streaky. It also seemed to start to dry on the brush while I was applying, which was super weird.

Despite the trouble with the formula, this is my new favorite nude polish! The bit of pink in it makes it different than all of the nude creme polishes out there. You’ll definitely be seeing this again and again as a base for nail art!

Sally Hansen | Breezy Blue

Hi everyone!

Are you having a good Sunday afternoon? I’ve been kind of busy preparing for my trip next week, and I have work tonight! Today I’ll be showing you Breezy Blue from Sally Hansen.

Breezy Blue is a sky blue with silver shimmer. I applied three coats without topcoat.

 The formula was pretty bad – it was runny, streaky, and it had a lot of trouble self-leveling. When I originally picked this up, I though it was going to be a sky blue creme. But alas, it was a shimmery, almost sea foam color. I like it, but I think it’s a spring polish rather than a summer one!

Color Club | Tweet Me

Hi everyone!

Happy Saturday! Do you have any plans for tonight? I’m working from 5 to 9! Today I have Color Club’s Tweet Me to share with you.

Color Club Tweet Me swatch 1

Tweet Me is a chartreuse creme. I applied three coats without topcoat.

The formula was slightly streaky and it had a lot of problems self-leveling.

This is one of those “ugly-pretty” colors that most people love or hate. And I love it! I think it’s a great unexpected shade for summer.

Sally Hansen | Blue Me Away!

Hi everyone!

TGIF! Do you have any plans for tonight? I’m going to see Deliver Us From Evil! Today I have Sally Hansen’s Blue Me Away! to share with you!

Sally Hansen Blue Me Away swatch 1d

Blue Me Away! is a medium blue creme. I applied two coats with topcoat.

The formula was absolutely amazing. This was completely opaque in one coat – the only reason I applied a second coat was because I messed up my pointer finger and needed to touch it up. Plus, I’ve found that two coats cover the ridges in my nails a lot better than just one coat. This dried incredibly glossy, too!

I wholeheartedly recommend that you pick this shade up – it’s the perfect blue!

Striped Accent

Hi everyone!

How is your week going? Mine is going kind of slow but sometimes that can be nice! Today I have a simple striped accent nail look to share with you.

Striped Accent 1d

 

I started with Essie I’m Addicted as my base color, and made vertical stripes on the ring finger with OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls.

This look was super simple and easy to do, but I think that it’s rather boring. I wish I had painted stripes on all of my nails, or at least on a second nail to make a double accent nail manicure. Oh well, there’s always next time!

Zoya | Binx

Hi everyone!

Today I have Binx from Zoya to show you.

Zoya Binx swatch 1

 

Binx is a dark pink jelly with golden shimmer and larger hex glitter. I applied three coats with topcoat.

The formula was easy to apply. I think a color like this is great if you want to wear glitter but want to look more mature. It also seems sort of holiday to me, so I’ll definitely be pulling it out again during the winter season.

SOPI I'm Wired swatch 1

 

I’m Wired is a coral creme. I applied two coats with topcoat.

The formula was easy to apply but I experienced some streaking.

It’s been a while since I’ve worn this shade; I’d forgotten how bright and punchy it is! I love it!
