MANI MONDAY: ESSIE ‘CHINCHILLY’

Essie, Manicure Monday

A NEVER ENDING SUMMER, COULD THIS BE TRUE? The heat was crazy this past week, to say the least with San Diego heating up to 105+ degrees. I honestly can’t recall the last time it was this hot in October. I am SO envious of everyone who’s been enjoying the fall weather, leaves changing colors, etc. But, I’m excited about the 70-degree weather coming up this week!! So today, I’m bringing fall to you with this nail polish and you can bet I’m sipping on a PSL while typing away. Continue Reading

Essie Pre Show Jitters

And I’m back at it again with another Manicure Monday post, only this time I’m writing about a polish from Essie’s Gel Couture line! Essie launched their Gel Couture line last year in either April or May with 42 colors and a top coat!  I’ve been loving off white, beige, and nude polishes during the summer!  Continue Reading

Mani Monday: Essie ‘Mrs Always-Right’

Essie, Manicure Monday

Summer is in full effect in San Diego with palm trees and a beautiful breeze. I’ve been switching out my nail polish more often and have recently fallen in love with a polish in my Essie collection. For the most part, I love Essie polishes, although I’ve purchased some that were just too streaky. Mrs. Always-Right, on the other hand, is absolutely beautiful. If I could describe this polish in one word, it would be raspberry. Mrs. Always-Right is a gorgeous rose, yet neutral mauve that is very flattering on my skin tone. This polish is definitely one that I can wear year round!

Initial Thoughts:  First off, this polish is part of Essie’s 2016 Bridal Collection. The formula for this polish is very opaque even with one coat of nail polish. Although I still prefer using a base coat, 2 coats of nail polish and a top coat for longer wear time. In these pictures, I’ve only applied 2 coats of polish, although I definitely think I could’ve gotten away with only 1 coat. This is definitely, hands down, one of my FAVORITE Essie polishes! The application was a dream!

Mani Monday: Essie ‘Sand Tropez’

Essie, Manicure Monday

Spring is here! I love changing up my nail polish every 7-10 days. I tend to wear a lot of black, so I add some color by painting my nails. As many of you know, Essie is one of my favorite nail polish brands to use. Today, I’m using Sand Tropez- a beautiful, soft beige which I believe is one of their best sellers. It’s definitely one of my favorite nudes and looks flattering on all skin tones. I definitely recommend you try it out if you love a polish that pretty much goes with anything.

Hey Everyone! Thank you for tuning in as always! I’m back at it again with another Mani Monday post since I know you enjoy them. For the past 2 years, I have been obsessing over Essie… it’s the only polish I wear. I love to buy at least 1 Essie polish a month, and if I skip a month, I end up buying 2. I’ve accumulated 27 polishes thus far & the neutrals are my favorites! If you have any color requests, let me know in the comments & I will gladly go out & buy it to try it!
