Fall Favorite: Deep Red Nails

2 Oct

When I think of Fall beauty favorites, I always think of deep colors and jewel tones.  I love a good rich nail color and there is no better time to rock it than during Fall and Winter. Below I’ve linked my favorite Fall shade of red, called Raven Red. It’s very red while being deep enough that it has burgundy hues to it in certain lighting. Also- it’s under $5!

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:)

xo, Journey

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.

My Top 10 Fall Nail colors!!!!!

14 Sep

One of the biggest statement making accessories in your wardrobe is your NAILS!!!!!  Nail color can change the entire vibe of an outfit and make you feel polished(no pun intended) and pretty!!!!! The greatest thing about this fabulous “accessory” is that everyone can afford a bottle of nail polish! I wear drug store brands as well as designer and everything in between.  The polishes I will be featuring in this post are all by Essie are around $8  which I think is mid ranged, HOWEVER there are many more affordable options like wet’ n wild and small sample polishes at your local beauty shops.  If you’re on a budget, you can still have fabulous nails!  Anyways, let’s get right to it……here are my top 10 Fall nail polishes that I will be rocking throughout the Fall and well into Winter. Get involved people!!!

Essie ‘Armed and ready’ is a metallic dark olive-green available HERE.
