Hello dolls!
Hope your week is treating you well so far! The rain has finally arrived in my corner of the country so I have been focused on trying to stay dry! Which just so happens to give me more time for nail polish too!
Today I have another polish from Beauty Stop Online, Essie Pretty Edgy! I am so excited to share this one with you all, this is a color that I have actually lemmed for a while! Pretty Edgy is described as "a bright, palmetto green polish" and is from their Summer 2010 collection. An oldie but definitely a goodie! :) See for yourself!

So I obviously had a problem narrowing down pictures, didn't think anyone would mind! I love this color so much! I used 2 coats but could have done 1. The formula was great! (Base coat: Julep Nail Therapy and top coat: Seche Vite.) Even better is how well it has lasted so far! I painted my nails Sunday night and I still have no chips (I usually have them within a couple days) and just a tiny bit of tip wear. Needless to say this is going to be a favorite in my stash!

I would love to hear about what you are wearing and what some of your favorites are! Feel free to leave a comment!

Hello lovelies!

Hope you all had a great weekend! Sorry this post didn't come sooner, I had a pretty busy week and didn't have a chance to check in! But I have a pretty awesome color to show you today so I hope it makes up for my absence! :)

Today I have another polish that was sent to me by Beauty Stop Online. This time I am showing you Orly Rococo A-Go-Go! This polish is described as "metallic deep purple" and is part of Orly's Mineral FX collection. Now for some photo spam!


This really is such a beautiful shade, and great for fall! I love the slight gold shimmer that comes out of hiding occasionally. It really adds extra depth! (Just in case anyone is wondering this is 2 coats although I could have gotten away with 1. Base coat is Julep Nail Therapy and top coat is Seche Vite.)
There you have it! I already have my next post in the works so look forward to that in the next couple days! Happy Monday! :)

NOTD: Essie School of Hard Rocks *BEAUTY STOP ONLINE REVIEW*

Hey hey hey!!

I am finally back and have some fun stuff lined up for your viewing pleasure! Super excited to share with you all my very first product review!

While on my hiatus I was contacted by Beauty Stop Online and offered an opportunity to review several products from their store! (For some background on the company click here) I was pleasantly surprised by their selection of Essie, Orly and China Glaze nail polishes! And love that they have a feature that allows you to search by color, including glitter! :) I also love that their prices are lower than retail AND free shipping for orders over $50!

Moving on to the good stuff. . .today I will be showing you Essie's School of Hard Rocks from their 2011 Winter Collection! This polish is described as "midnight malachite." I don't know about the fancy description, I would call it a teal-gray cream. Check out the pictures and decide for yourself!

I took all but the last photo in my bathroom lighting and it is pretty spot on representation of how it looks in most lighting. Leans a little more green that way. But the last photo I took in the direct sunlight coming through the window, and it leans more gray. Either way I really love this color and it was perfect for my first fall mani!

That's all for today, but I will be back soon with another review for you so stay tuned! Thanks for stopping by!
