Who doesnt love a pretty polish?

Nail Polish 101


If you are anything like me, going into a CVS or Walgreens is very time consuming.  Mostly because, I go straight to the nail polish isle and can spend an hour looking for the perfect nail polish color. 

This season, I have a slight obsession with the orange-pink/coral colors. 

Check out this new essie brand polish that I found and LOVE



I love the brightness of the color.  At first it has a hot pink color to it but on its more orange.

It is very OLE CALIENTE!! HOT HOT HOT!!

TIP:  When applying the first layer, apply polish horizontally to tip of your nail and then the remaining coats, vertically.  This will help with chipping {hopefully:)}


Happy Monday!

  2. I have heard a lot of great things about essie and am dying to try it out. Please don;t think I'm dumb, but does laquer mean that I need to put a clear coat on first? lol. I obviously don't shop for polish often

    1. Essie is wonderful! My next purchase will be the mint green color :) I always use a base coat, even when it is a laquer (i found that when I don't, the polish doesn't last as long and chips). You can get a clear polish that is a base and top coat together. Play around with different polishes, top coats and base coats and just see what works best with your day to day lifestyle. :) *side note, i would never think you are dumb! Heading over now to check out your blog!
