MAC Fantasy of Flowers

A glorious garden of irresistible shades unfolds, its hidden pleasures unearthed, as delicate pastel Pigments unfurl and the dewy sparkle of Cremesheen Glass casts a luminous gleam. Rose-coloured hues burst from lustrous Lipstick, while a heavenly hybrid of Mineralize Eye Shadows blossom with natural splendor. Cheeks are kissed with the graceful glow of Mineralize Blush, and vivid pops of colour flourish as Fluidline and Nail Lacquer bring this flowery fantasia to life.

Enamored with Essie: Blanc and Snap Happy

essie blanc and snap happy nail polish

Lately, I’ve been enamored with Essie. Mr. Spoiled Pretty and Westley gave me a gift card to a local nail salon for Mother’s Day – and every time I get my nails did, I find myself gravitating to the Essie shades. Not only are the shades super gorge, but they apply like a dream and they look fresh to def for a good 10 days (and I’m super rough on my hands). On my toes, we’re talking a good month.

Essie Blanc and Snap Happy Nail PolishHere are two of my most recent Essie manis: Blanc (a snowy white) and Snap Happy (a cheerful red orange)

What are your favorite Essie shades? I’m looking for inspiration for my next mani/pedi – so leave your suggestions in the comments section.

Polished: L’Oreal Paris Watermelon Manicure

loreal new money crazy for chic nail polish

L’oreal Paris recently re-designed all of their packaging, and their Colour Riche nail polishes now come in sleek rectangular bottles.

I picked up two colors: New Money (a bright, light green) and Crazy for Chic (a clear, vibrant raspberry pink). I was eager to see how long these polishes would last, since they are advertised for 10-day wear.

I applied two coats of each color, going for a summertime watermelon-inspired manicure. I proceeded to beat up my manicures as I always do: washing dishes, typing way too much, and cooking.

I am happy to report that my watermelon nails lasted for 8 days without chipping! These polishes have serious staying power, and they are a great choice for summertime manicures and pedicures with longevity.
