Essie Berry Naughty and Sparkle on Top


I was so happy to receive a couple goodies from Essie to play around with!  Essie Berry Naughty is a vampy, rich burgundy cream.  The formula is very pigmented, I used two easy coats for my swatch.

They also sent Sparkle on Top which is a blue/purple/green shifting flakie topper.  When I first found nail blogs, I was so mesmerized by flakie polishes.  Five years later, I still love them!

 Have a great day loves!

OPI Hello Kitty Skittle Mani

My favorite thing to do with a new OPI Collection is to do a skittle mani!  The Hello Kitty Collection has some adorable pinks, so it was easy to choose a few to go together.

On my pointer finger I am wearing Let's Be Friends!  On my middle finger I am wearing the gorgeous Small + Cute = Heart.  My ring finger is Look at My Bow! and my pinkie is Spoken from the Heart.

The OPI Hello Kitty Collection is available in salons and select stores now.

New OPI Hello Kitty Collection


I am so excited to show you the cutest new collection by OPI.  The Hello Kitty Collection is so stinkin' adorable!  Six gorgeous shades of pinks, three shimmery/glittery polishes a few unexpected pops of colors make up this happy, twelve polish collection.

First up is Lets Be Friends, the palest pink of the collection.  This 'almost white' pink has a great formula, very pigmented and easy to work with.  You can easily get away with two coats, but I used three for my swatch because my pics seem to show any little imperfections.

 Small + Cute = Heart is the sweetest baby pink.  I am in love with this shade, it's soft but bright at the same time.  I needed three coats to make it opaque, the formula was a little thick so make sure you let it completely dry between coats.

Look at my Bow! is the perfect bubble gum, girly pink.  Formula was fantastic, two easy coats was all I needed.

 Spoken from the Heart is a gorgeous watermelon, with a hint of coral, pink crelly (cream-jelly).  I used two coats for my swatch, the formula was easy to work with and leveled out nicely.

5 Apples Tall is a stunning apple red with pink undertones.  Guys, this is a one coater!  There is still some VNL on one coat, but that doesn't bother me.  I love one coaters!

 Super Cute in Pink is a beautiful pinky purple crelly.  The formula was fantastic, two easy coats and it leveled out nicely.

Charmmy & Sugar is a super fun glitter bomb!  There is a lot of things going on in this bottle!  Iridescent pink to white shimmer with pink, blue and silver glitters throughout.  Formula was great, I used three thin coats.

Kitty White is a beautiful, shimmery white with a pearly finish.  This was an unexpected favorite of mine, I loved the super fine pearly glitter in here.  I used three thin coats.

 Starry Eyed for Dear Daniel is a gorgeous fuchsia glitter bomb.  There are pink and silver glitters jam packed into a pink jelly base.  Formula again was great, three thin coats and a generous layer of top coat.  This doesn't dry to a crazy rough texture like a lot of glitters, but I always prefer to make it smooth and shiny with top coat.

My Twin Mimmy is a lovely sunshine yellow.  The formula was typical for a yellow polish, a little streaky so I used three thin coats.

My Pal Joey is stunning true blue cream.  This is another one coater ladies!  I think a lot of people are going to love this blue with the perfect formula.

 Last but not least, we have Never Have Too Many Friends!  This jet black is another one coater, so I know I will be reaching for this one when I want some vampy black nails!

So tell me, what do ya'll think of this collection?  Which one is your favorite?  Will you be picking any or all of these up?!

The OPI Hello Kitty Collection is available now at select stores.  Check out the OPI website for more information.

Milani Imperial Purple

Thank goodness it's Friday!  I am so looking forward to this weekend.  Loralai and I are going to the States for some shopping and groceries, and you know what that means.... polish haul!

I have a quick swatch to show you today, it's Milani Color Statement Imperial Purple.  This is only my third Milani polish, I don't know why though because the formula and wear time has been excellent.  I used two easy coats for my swatch and I have been wearing it for 4 days without any chips.

Purple shades like this just kill me!  I want them all!

Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!
