Cleaning out my nail polish collection

Julep Nail Color Giveaway! Win a Julep Maven Intro Box ($40 value). Enter here if you love nail polish! Every year I go through my nail polish collection. I see which colors have dried out and which colors I haven’t been wearing. The ones that have dried out, I throw in the trash. The ones that I haven’t reached for (a while), I set aside and ask myself the following questions: why haven’t I worn this color? will I ever wear this color? is there someone else who might like this color better? Today was the day! This is my...

On My Nails: Mojito Madness by Essie (Summer collection)

Feeling green! 🙂 This is Mojito Madness by Essie. It’s part of Essie’s 2012 Summer collection, that consists of a total of 6 fun colors. Essie describes Mojito Madness as a fun-loving partly lime color. I describe it as a bright mid-toned green. 😉 Like all Essie nail polishes the color is very long lasting (on the pictures I’ve been wearing it for 4 days, no chipping!), it covers your nail at one go and allows a streak-free application. It’s a lovely Summer color! I’ve been getting a lot of compliments on it. 🙂 Essie nail polishes retail for $8...

On My Nails: Purple Silver by Saint Germain

Here’s the nail polish I wrote about a few days ago! As you can see it’s a frosty lilac color. I’m not a huge fan of frost or metallic polishes, because they are hard to apply. It requires some effort to get it ‘even’, but once applied it’s a beautiful color! I used two coats (like I always do) and I applied a top coat. I’ve been wearing this color for almost a week now and it still looks good. Like! 🙂 Saint Germain nail polishes retail for $3.95. You can find them here. For those interested: they don’t contain...

On My Nails: new polishes by Essence!

This week I’m wearing two nail polishes by European brand Essence: * Essence Nail Colour 3, Boys are Back in Town (creamy grey/purple) * Essence Essence Nail Art Special Effect Topper, 08 Night in Vegas (multi-colored flakes) The Nail Colour 3 collection is a new addition to Essence nail polishes. As you can see it’s a duo: two different colors that can be used on their own or layered over each other to create a third color. I, however, only used one of the polishes, the creamy purple/grey color. Love it! On top of that I layered another polish by...
