Nails ~ Essie w/ Jamberry

Oh, hey there! It’s been a hot minute since my last post! Life these days has been busy, to say the least. Between my hubby working out of town for weeks at a time, kids and their extracurricular activities, the class I’m taking for college, camp on the weekends (with no wifi) and just life in general, blogging has taken a back seat. I miss it though so I’m going to make a major effort to fit it all in.

Today’s post is a quick one, as I have loads of studying to do (boooo!). I recently placed an order for nail wraps from a company called Jamberry. My friend had a party through Facebook and they looked interesting so I gave them a go. I have never tried a nail wrap but I figured now was the time! My order came in and with it was a couple of samples for accent nails. I decided to start with one of those for my first time applying one, so I didn’t ruin a set that I paid for if I applied it wrong.  keep reading…

Nails ~ O•P•I w/ Essie

Hello! How is everyone’s Friday!? Mine? So far, so good!

Last night I decided to give my nails a polish. I was in the mood for something dark with a touch of sparkle. I ended up choosing O•P•I’s Light My Sapphire and a coat of Essie’s Stroke Of Brilliance on my ring fingers. I really like how this turned out! The two blues paired together was pretty and sparkled nicely in the light without looking too “in your face” glittery.  keep reading…

Hi!

Check out this polish! How pretty!? I felt like painting my nails something dark but I wasn’t in the mood for basic black. I wanted some pizzazz!  I dug through my stash and found this one. It’s Essie’s Frock ‘N Roll. The shade is describes as a rich espresso brown with shimmer. The colour was so dark that it looked black to everyone who’s opinion I asked for. The shade was quite opaque and applied nice and even. I really like this one! keep reading…

Hello! Today I wanted to share a new shade of polish I picked up during a sale at Shoppers Drug Mart. The shade I purchased is Virgin Snow by Essie. I’m terrible at describing shades so I took to the Essie website and they say that Virgin Snow is an icy, frozen lavender shade. I think that’s a perfect description! keep reading…

Hello all! Today I painted my nails with a polish I bought quite awhile ago, maybe a year ago. I’ve never used it! I look at it every time I paint my nails but always end up choosing something else. It’s so pretty! I thought I’d share! Now remember…I’m terrible at painting my nails so this isn’t a pro-manicure type post, I just wanted to show you how pretty the colour is!

Essie’s Penny Talk
I find it difficult to evenly apply metallic nail polishes but the colour is so pretty! To me, Penny Talk is a light coppery-bronzy shade with a light pink sheen when you move your nails around in the light. I think it looks lighter and more pink on the nails than it does in the bottles. It’s very pretty!

Have a lovely day!

Hey! Quick post! Today I wanted to share today’s polish choices. I have painted my nails using these polishes 2 weeks in a row. I never do that! I feel guilty doing that because I have a ridiculous amount of polishes, I feel like I should use different ones each time. But, I’ve enjoyed this combo so much! I love how they look paired keep reading…
