Sheer Perfection!

18 Jul

Let me start by saying that I love all things pink.  I love any and every shade of the pretty color but I’m partial to blush.  Blush pink is so soft and feminine, looks great on all skin tones, and goes with everything…..which led me to a year-long search for the prettiest sheer pink nail polishes. By sheer I mean that they’re almost like a clear polish with a slight pink tint to them.

I’ve tried so many pinks along the way and have narrowed it down to my favorite 3 that I’m going to share with you today.  The colors below are perfect for year round wear, but I especially love wearing them in the Summer. Also these beautiful understated hues are perfect for your wedding day.

Starting with the sheerest of them all,  Essie Sugar Daddy is like your nails, only better. This color looks like you have really healthy nails- think nude with a hint of pink.

Next up, a slightly pinker -but still not too pink color is Essie Mademoiselle. It is sheer just like Sugar daddy but can build (2-3 coats) to a pretty milky pink.

Lastly, this super shiny pink(slightly more pink than the others)  is OPI Passion. This color is similar to the others and can be built up just like mademoiselle can be. It’s the shiniest and longest wearing of the three as well.

Note: All three colors can be built up but remain sheer.

Spring Nail Color!

24 Mar

Spring has sprung and I’m sharing my favorite bright and cheery nail color with you guys. The color is Lounge lover by Essie and is a pretty peachy/coral hue.essie1 It’s not overly bright in a tacky way, it’s actually very feminine and pretty. It also looks amazing on all skin tones.  Shop Essie polish HERE.

Note: Tart deco and Shop til I drop are very similar to Lounge Lover

Happy spring:)

My Favorite Everyday Nail Color!

12 Jul

I’ve found the perfect year round everyday nail color. It’s a pinkish clear hue by Essie called Sugar Daddy. I LOVE this color. It’s almost clear but very light pink at the same time. It basically goes with everything and makes your nails look super healthy. I’m on my 2nd bottle and I never go through nail polish that fast. I was explaining it to a friend as the perfect color for everyone, from the color enthusiasts to the non polish wearing. It compliments all skin tones as well. I recommend you pick a bottle up to add to your collection!

Fall Nail Color Favorites!

21 Nov

I love beautiful rich dark shades for fall and winter and thought I’d share my favorites colors with you.  They are both by Essie, but most polish companies make these shades or similar shades. I do favor Essie when it comes to darker shades because their formulas are super thick and don’t streak.

Stylenomics is a deep green shade.

Carry On is a dark deep burgundy wine shade.

Teal Heels!!!!

17 Oct

Every Fall & Winter a slew of  gorgeous rich colors make their way into our wardrobes. Most of us turn to our black, grey, brown and navy pieces throwing the occasional burgundy and camel in the mix and call it a day.  This year however, I’m already seeing much more color- tons of reds, greens, oranges and purples but my favorite color of all is TEAL! I love how luxuriously fun teal is! The emerald meets deep blue hue is so pretty and pairs well with many other colors like black, grey, camel and gold!  I can’t even express how much I love gold and teal together!

A great way to incorporate this divine color into your wardrobe is to start with a heel!  Check out these styles below!
