Essence: Let's Get Lost

Hey Doll's
I know you probably are thinking does this girl wear anything other then Essence?? I only have one more new shade to show you after this I promise!!(that is until I get more!!) I``m not really sure why I got this color because I really am not into electric blue nails. I think they are pretty in the bottle and I have seen many people pull this color off nicely but on me it just does not work. I feel like I'm in a bad 80's movie when I wear blue's like this one.....maybe my wardrobe does not mesh with this color, I don't know. Anyways here are the swatches!!

It really is beautiful in the bottle I think I am just being fussy lol!! Like all my other Essence polishes it has excellent formula, no more then two coats needed!! This one does not have any glitters or shine to it although the picture on the website does show it with some...I used a generic glitter on my accent finger and on the tips of my other nails. I think this mani makes it a little more wearable but I am still not feeling the blue. I also had an accident!! I honestly think I felt some tears in my eyes when I  broke this nail!! It had just grown to a length I was liking and this had to happen!! Always seems to happen this way :(

Essence: LOL

Hey Girly's
Yes I am posting another Essence!! I only have two more of the new colors I got and I am hoping by the time I post those there is new colors in stores!! I've been checking out all their new collections and they are so pretty!! I hope the hurry up already and send the whole line to Canada, please!! Anyways I originally wanted Did it on'Em OPI from the Nicki Minaj collection. It is a yellow toned green that is more on the pastel muted side rather then a typical neon. When I saw LOL I thought it could be a good dupe but I do think it is a little more bright then I would have wanted. Either way I do not have anything like it in my collection so I am happy!! I added Sally Hansen Rock Star Pink to my accent nail to spice things up....not sure if that was a good idea lol!!

I can't decide if I should go for the OPI or if this is a close enough match for me........maybe if I run out of this one I will try Did it On'Em!!

Essence: Oh my Glitter!

Hey Beauties ❤❤

Today I`m wearing a gorgeous nail polish by Essence. I don`t want to say it is my favorite polish by Essence because all their polishes are so good I can not just choose one!! The formula on these are excellent and the colors are amazing!! This one is a light but bright purple with very fine glitter specks in it!! I have honestly never seen another polish like it!! It is unique, I just love it!!

I used two coats but I think on some nails I could have used three (in the sunlight you can kind of see through my nail!!) But I still am in love with this nail polish none the less!! Oh, did I mention it has the thick brush that fits your nail perfectly!! Some people don`t like that but it`sperfect for my nail!!

DIY: Nail Polish Spice Rack

Hey Dolls ❤❤

I know most of you probably have already seen these but I thought I would share mine anyways because I was pretty proud of myself lol!! Me and wallpaper do not get along so the fact I was able to put it on without bubbles made me pretty happy!! (maybe because it wasn`e technically REAL wallpaper!!) This is such an easy inexpensive way to make a unique nail polish rack!!

                                                   What you will need:
    1. Spice rack. I found mine at a thrift store which did
       take a few trips and looking around at different places
       because the old style shelf style spice racks are not
      as popular now a days.
      2. Wallpaper. I found mine at Dollarama for $2. You can
     check your local Wal-mart or Target but I only found
      wallpaper for $38+ and was not about to pay that!!

      3. Paint. I chose black although I think grey would have
      looked great with my wallpaper as well. I also picked this
      up at Dollarama for $1 but I know Michaels carries paint
      for not much more (plus you can always use your 50% off
      coupons for an even better deal!!)
      4. Scissora and Measuring Tape. Depending on what type of
      wallpaper you used you may need a bowl of warm water and a
      cloth as well. I used wallpaper that already has a self
      stick adhesive.

   1. Clean off your spice rack (Especially if you bought it at a thrift store like I did!!)

                               2. Paint your Spice Rack and Let dry overnight

           3. Measure the areas you would like to put wallpaper on and make
                                         outline on back of wallpaper.

    4. Cut wallpaper and apply by taking off the back or applying warm water  (dependant on what type you bought!! Read Instructions on item for exact application)

              5. Let everything dry and do any touch ups that you feel necessary.

It is SO easy guys!! You must try it if your looking for a nail polish rack!! I``m already searching for more Spice Racks so I can make more!!
