Barielle Alli’s Lace Cover Up

Barielle Alli’s Lace Cover Up

Barielle Alli's Lace Cover Up COVERI don’t know if Barielle sent me this polish because it’s called Alli’s Lace Cover Up or not but I’d like to assume they did! Either way, I’m glad I received this polish because it’s not a I’d gravitate to on my own; despite the name. And as it turns out, I quite like this polish,

Alli’s Lace Cover Up is a pale purple leaning pink creme. Due to my coloring the color is not only super flattering…

Zoya- Bar

Zoya Magical Pixie Dust BarHappy Labor Day! I was wandering around Ulta Saturday (shocking), looking for a back to school treat for myself and I kept looking at Zoya’s Summer 2014 Magical PixieDust display.  I went back and forth between Bar and Ginni. Bar appealed to my love of the beach – it instantly reminded me of impossibly sparkly sand. I figured, what better way to send off summer in style than with a beautiful &…

OPI My Dogsled is a Hybrid

OPI My Dogsled is a Hybrid

OPI My Dogsled is a Hybrid COVERJust for the record I have no interest in dogsleds. Even if it is a hybrid. Dogsleds mean snow and well, I don’t do snow. (I said that in my best Alabama accent). But, if I did have a (hybrid) dogsled it might be the color of this polish.

My Dogsled is a Hybrid is, obviously, from OPI’s fall 2014 Nordic collection. OPI categorizes My Dogsled is a Hybrid as a sea green. It’s very Mermaid’s Tears,

Essie - Dress to Kilt

Essie – Dress to Kilt

Essie - Dress to KiltToday is a great day. I saw the elusive neighborhood squirrel this morning and I also found my perfect autumn red for 2014. Between the cherry shades of summer and the vampy shades of winter, this Essie reminds me of fall sunsets, apples, crunchy leaves, and pumpkin…everything.

Dress to Kilt, the namesake polish of their stunning Fall Collection for 2014, has me swooning. I know, I know – it’s…

NYC Jacaranda Flower

NYC Jacaranda Flower coverAlmost always the first polish I try from any collection is the purple polish. My addiction to nail polish started because of purple polish. But for some reason Jacaranda Flower got lost in the mix when I received the NYC City Samba collection.

Jacaranda Flower is a medium blue based purple creme. The color, though not particularly unique, is gorgeous. Unfortunately the formula is a bit fussy. I…

Crabtree & Evelyn Black Tulip

Crabtree & Evelyn Black Tulip coverI introduce you to the reason I had to try Crabtree & Evelyn nail polishes; Black Tulip. I saw the promo image for this polish and HAD to have it. I was persistent and I’m glad I was. Black Tulip did not disappoint!

Crabtree & Evelyn’s description of Black Tulip is truly a work of art:

A budding hint of colour or a rich shade in full bloom – the choice is yours with our Black Tulip nail lacquer.…

Essie – Take it Outside

essie - take it outsideIt’s an exciting day! I’m rocking my first polish from essie’s Dress to Kilt Collection for Fall 2014! It’s going to be an amazing day, I just know it. The official essie description put me in such an awesome mood when I first read it: Want to start trouble? Don this punchy, fresh taupe with a whisper of pink and hit ‘em with your best shot. Doesn’t that make you just want to go do amazing…

Perfect Pair: PISTOL polish True Grit, I’ve Got It & Orly Saturated

Perfect Pair: PISTOL polish True Grit, I’ve Got It & Orly Saturated

PISTOL polish True Grit, I've Got It and Orly Saturated coverThis manicure came to be because I was wearing PISTOL polish True Grit, I’ve Got It and loved it. But, despite the fact that True Grit is textured AND metallic I found it to be a  bit on the boring side in terms of the color.

The easy way to fix this problem is obviously to add some color to the manicure. I didn’t want to do a regular accent nail so I opted to add a small triangle of Orly…

Barielle Paradise in the Tropics

Barielle Paradise in the Tropics

Barielle Paradise in the Tropics coverY’all. It is so hot! I know it’s August. And I live in the South. BUT IT’S SO HOT! Thanks to the weather my brief foray into fall polishes has come to a halt.

Paradise in the Tropics is from the Barielle summer 2014 The Keys collection. I love this collection because there is so much variety. There is everything from super classic (like Topless is St. Tropez) to really trendy (like Panama Pina…
