Essie Resort 2014

I absolutely love the color scheme for Essie’s Resort 2014 collection. I mean what’s not to love about nude, coral and blues? They go so well together. Application for these were all pretty easy.

OPI x Gwen Stefani Collection

When OPI annouced last year that they were collaborating with Gwen Stefani for a collection, I’m sure every No Doubt and polish loving girl out there just went SQUEEE!

China Glaze Summer 2013 collection, Sunsational, is comprised of 6 cremes and 6 jellies in pinks, purples, peaches, blues and greens. I’ve read some reviews on these (some good, some bad), but I love the colors so I had to try them out for myself. Overall the application wasn’t as bad as I expected, it […]
