NOTD #3: Rose Gold

I haven’t posted in forever!!  I have quite a bit of time off this month so hopefully I’ll at least get some subscription box posts up!  But for now, here’s a quick Nail of the Day!

Like most of the beauty world, I seem to be obsessed with rose gold, and that obsession has spread to my nails!  Rose gold is perfect for the holidays and I think it looks really good on medium/olive skin tones.  Here’s what I’m wearing:

Polish: Essie Buy Me a Cameo
Accent: Milani Club Lights
Base: Wet n’ Wild Wild Shine base coat
Top: Seche Vite Dry Fast top coat

Essie describes this polish as a “frosted mocha,” but I think there’s enough pink in there to call it rose gold.  It’s one of Essie’s better formulas and applies like a dream, with 2 coats being more than enough for opacity.  I did an accent with Milani’s Club Lights, which has large and small chunks of light pink and magenta glitter.

Let me know what you think!

NOTD #2: Truth or Flare

Just a quick post today!  I’ll have my June ipsy post up in a couple days, as well as a review of a palette I just purchased.  But for now, nail of the day #2!

Polish: Essie Truth or Flare
Base: Wet n’ Wild Wild Shine base coat
Top: Seche Vite Dry Fast top coat

This polish is part of Essie’s new Summer 2014 line, and I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it.  It is a gorgeous dusky cornflower blue, which I think is perfect for summer!  It applies like a dream and self-levels, as many Essie polishes do.  It is opaque and creamy, but two coats are required.  Definitely a new summer favorite!
