NOTD: L’Oreal Miss Luster-ess


This is one of the new L’Oreal Extraordinaire Gel Lacque 1-2-3 Polishes.  I’m currently reviewing it, so watch for a big review on the formula soon.  This is the color Miss Luster-ess and it’s just a perfect lilac with a slight pink tinge (dare I say an orchid shade…).  I love it!  But I do enjoy all purple colors, even if they don’t all love me.

NOTD: Essie Full Steam Ahead

This was part of the Spring 2013 collection. It’s a nice lilac color with a hint of silver micro-shimmer. Actually, I took this picture a long time ago, but I forgot to post it.

This is such a pretty polish. It reminds me a lot of Essie Watermelon.

Here is my rendition of BubzBeauty’s Arty Floral Nail Tutorial.  Isn’t it gorgeous??


And here are the colors that I used: Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in White Out, Clinique Summer in the City, Essie Watermelon, Essie Ole Caliente, and Revlon Dominate.

NOTD: Essie Ole Caliente


This is Essie Ole Caliente from the Navigate Her collection (Spring 2012).  In the photo it appears almost red, but it’s like a tomato kind of color.  A red, but very orange undertones.  Quite fun for summer 🙂

NOTD: Clinique A Different Nail Enamel in Summer in the City


Wowza was this color hard to get a decent picture of.  It’s almost to the point of being neon, so my camera just freaked out.  The picture above is a tad more muted and a tad more pink than it is in real life.  This color is a true coral to me.  The absolutely perfect balance between pink and orange.  This color is just begging to be in an ombre nail look.  Perhaps I’ll give that a whirl next, when my nails have grown out a bit again.
