Theme Week: UnTried Polish – Essie green/teal

This is Turquoise and Caicos by Essie.  I didn’t really like the application, it took a lot of coats.  But I did like the final look of the polish, almost like a thick jelly. And I got lots of compliments on the color, so it is probably staying in my stash.

Theme Week: Untried Polish – Essie Shimmer

This was my first time wearing Essie ever! I thought they were a little streaky on the first coat, but evened out nicely. And this is four untried polishes for me, yeah stash bashing!

Essie Merino Cool (brown/taupe creme)
Essie Pretty Edgy (kelly green creme)
Konad Special Polish in White
China Glaze White Cap (gold shimmer/glitter?) 1 coat on accent nails

Looking at it today, I would only do Konad on the accent nails and skip the glitter in the future. But it was great stamping practice (so hard to get the image straight)!

Theme Week: UnTried Polish – Red Creme

For the first day of this theme week I did a red creme, Hey Sailor by China Glaze with Ruby Pumps (also China Glaze) as an accent nail.

Hey Sailor is nice and creamy looking, little bit more orange leaning than Ruby Pumps. Application was awesome.  I loved it as soon as it was on! Definitely now high on my list of reds.
