Manicure Monday: Jamberry + Essie

Jamberry and Essie go great together. When I use Jamberry wraps on just accent fingers it makes my wraps last longer also. Today I have three fingers wrapped with Jamberry’s Mint Green Chevron wraps and two fingers with three coats of Essie’s Turquoise & Caicos. I used alcohol and a bonding agent under my jamberry wraps but nothing on top. Under the Essie I have Nailtiques Formula 2 and Essie Gel Setter on top. I hope you like it!!

Manicure Monday: Essie’s Resort Fling

Happy Monday! It’s time to do it all over again this week, if you are like me and work a 9am-5pm Monday through Friday schedule. Last night I was feeling really summery, so I chose Essie’s Resort Fling, which is an orange peach sherbert color. It always manages to come out looking more orange in pictures than it really is, but don’t me wrong, it’s definitely orange, just not as … orange. LOL. Very descriptive, great job, Danielle. It is just a much softer orange in person, more sherbert-y, if…

Manicure Monday: French Manicure

The French Manicure is my favorite manicure. I think it looks super classy and clean, and looks good on everyone! Luckily, I have done a french manicure on myself so many times that I’ve perfected my method, even using my left hand to paint my right (I’m a righty)! The below french manicure is what I’m wearing this week, and I used Essie’s Blanc, Essie’s Sugar Daddy, CND Stickey Base Coat, and Seche Vite Quick Dry Top Coat. Sugar Daddy is such a light nude color, you can barely see it. I prefer…

Manicure Monday: Essie’s Sunday Funday & Bikini So Teeny

I got this inspiration from a fellow instagrammer, Stunninbmwnails, I’ll post her post below! Thank you!! I was drawn to the contrasting colors. I decided to do a simpler version than Stunninbmwnails and just put some sparkle on the middle finger, I used Essie’s Sparkle On Top. I love the two colors, Essie’s Sunday Funday (pink) and Bikini So Teeny (blue), because they are soooo close to being one coat wonders, & they go on nicely. The colors are quickly opaque, which you know I love. The blue, Bikini So Teeny,…

MANI MONDAY: Essie’s Bahama Mama

Happy Labor Day! I’m so excited to have a paid day off on Monday, and to enjoy this long weekend! The weather has been beautiful and we’re trying to take full advantage of it before it starts to turn cooler. I recently picked up Essie’s Bahama Mama from my local CVS. I really love Essie’s Big Spender, and this is in the same plum color family. I’ve been googling it to see if it’s part of a set, but, so far I have only found it on its own. I…
