It's so hot and sunny here lately (where I live it's summer) that I've been dreaming about the beach for the last few days, all the sand and the sun with an umbrella cocktail in one hand and a good book in another. Your toes and nails painted in some neon call everyone's attention color.... Enough daydreaming!
My nails are inspired by the sea, I used a few polishes for this so I'm gonna list them below:
Essie Turquoise and Caicos, 3 coats, base color
Essie Shine Of Times, 1 coat, flakies.
Zoya Breezi + CH4 for the waves
Sally Hansen Sonic Boom + Mash 35 (starfish) and SH19 (fish)
I love how this design turned out, I feel like the hidden flakies give it that sense of the sun hitting the water in a pool. What do you think?
Thanks for reading <3
It's been a really long time since I blogged and I really miss it and I miss you so I'm gonna try to get back on the blogging horse. So in this time that I've been away I kept painting my nails and trying to take pictures and that's what I'm gonna share with you in the upcoming days.
For today I have a mani that I loved. It's purple with gold stars (What's not to like?) For the base color I'm using Milani Purple Pop Art, in my ring finger I have a coat of Essie Shine of Times, hence the flakies and both star designs were stamped with China Glaze Passion and Cheeky plates.

I was seriously in love with this design I didn't want to remove it. Do you like this combo?
Thanks for reading <3
It's almost Friday and I hope everyone's been enjoying their week. I'm still on vacation but I'm really excited to start my new job on Monday.
After showing you my Essie Polish Collection I decided to make a design using only their polishes. As a base color I chose Bangle Jangle and then I stamped it with Boobing for Baubles and my XL Plate A that I got on ebay.
Hope you like this design. I most certainly did.
Thank you for reading <3
It's another Monday and I'm feeling really lucky today :) so I decided to show you my Essie Nail Polish collection. It is the first brand I have swatched completely and I feel proud of myself for actually have no untrieds left from Essie.
Now it's time to show you what I have. Most polishes where were only 2 coats and no top coat.
Ballet Slippers (3 coats)
Splash of Grenadine
Jamaica Me Crazy
Bobbing For Baubles
Turquoise and Caicos
Ufff that is a lot of pictures right there and in case you were wondering I have 12 Essie polishes... so far.
How many Essie nail polishes you have? Which is your favorite shade? If you have a polish collection post or video let me know in the comments cause I would love to check it.
Thank you for reading <3
Happy Saturday everyone!
Can't say mine will be all that happy since I'll be working but at least I have a fun mani to cheer me up.
I wanted to match the color of my nails to my tank top but I couldn't find the right Aqua in my collection so I layered a coat of Orly Frisky with Essie Turquoise and Caicos and then stamped the feather with white polish and the plate SH24.
Do you usually match your nails to your outfit?
Thank you for reading! <3
I hope everyone is having a great weekend, mine has been a busy one and today I'm back to work but I'm really pumped by today's post because who doesn't love a good song? You know, the type that just sticks in your head and you can't stop singing? For me it was Pink by Aerosmith right after I read about this challenge, love the band, love the song and it was perfect.
This is the song translated to my nails, I used so many polishes and stamps that it would've been a long list so if you wanna know about a specific one let me know in the comments.
What do you think? Do you listen to Aerosmith.If you're a fan of music, check out my friend's song choice for today.

I've been a little lazy these days not posting regularly and I apologize. On the bright side I have been taking pics of everything I wore on my nails and I'm going to share it with you right here:
Essie Splash of Grenadine
And now the one's I'm more excited about:
Marry a Millionaire
After swatching one too many reds from the OPI Muppets Collection I needed a lighter color on my nails so for today I have Essie Absolutely Shore from this year's Summer Collection. Look at the swatch below.
Obviously I added a stamp to this polish, in this case I used a silver polish and the Bundle Monster 213 plate and the little dots were made with a dotting tool and China Glaze Passion.
If you want to buy this polish head to transdesign
, they currently have all Essie polishes half off ($4)
What nail polish are you wearing today?
I've been hard at work these past few days trying to swatch and re swatch my nail polish collection to update my gallery and it's coming together slowly but surely which makes me proud.
For today's post I have Essie Turquoise and Caicos with a stamp from the BM 203 plate. Enjoy the pics.
I used a coat of CND Effects in Teal Sparkle and then stamped the design with China Glaze First Mate. (I have always loved this color combination)
