My Current Essie Nail Polish Collection!

Hey everyone! If you know me well, then you probably know that Essie is my favorite nail polish brand! The products last on my nails longer than ones from any other brand I’ve tried! Because I’ve recently discovered my love for Essie nail polishes, I currently only have eight different colors.
Starting from the top and going clockwise, the name of the nail polishes I own are:
  • Beyond Cozy
  • Summit of Style (this is from the luxeffects line)
  • #2 Pink
  • Merino Cool
  • It’s Genius
  • Watermelon
  • Ladylike
  • Tart Deco (was featured many times during NYFW!)

If you have recommendations for any Essie nail polish colors, please let me know in the comments below!

Mini Ulta Haul!

Hello everyone! After work today, I decided to pick up some new goodies at Ulta! They just built one near me and I was soo excited about that. Since it’s getting near the holiday season, Ulta has so many new gift sets and products that it took some self control to not buy more things. Here’s what I ended up getting!

  1. Maybelline SuperStay 14hr Lipstick in “Fuschia Forever”- $8.99
  2. Ā O.P.I Nail Lacquer in “Muir Muir on the Wall”- $2.50 (clearance is the bomb!)
  3. Essie Nail Polish in “Summit of Style”- $8.50
  4. Maybelline SuperStay 24 2-Step Color in “Keep It Red”- $8.99

One great thing about Ulta is that they usually do a buy one, get one half off sale for certain brands. Maybelline had that deal this time so the second product only cost me $4.50 instead of $8.99! This visit made me so excited about future blog posts, I think I am literally going to review everyone of these products.

Stay tuned for the reviews!

Favorite Nail Polish Brand: OPI!

Hey everyone! I recently purchased another OPI nail polish and this has pushed me over the edge in saying that OPI is definitely my favorite brand of nail polish! I am relatively new to buying their products but here are my reasons why I already know they are my favorite brand!

  • Ā Lasting Power! The main reason that I love this brand so much is because of the staying power! I put my current color on 5 days ago and it still looks nice! I also notice that when my nails do start to chip, they don’t chip at the tip of my nail. Instead, they chip towards my cuticle first which is nice because typically your nails start to look bad if they chip at the end.
  • Big brush: leads to easy and quick application!
  • Opacity: I only had to do two coats because the formula is not watery and applies thick enough to provide color quickly!
  • Natural shine: I didn’t even use a top coat and my nails had a nice gloss to them from this nail polish! That would definitely save you time and space if you were to travel or something and only wanted to bring one nail polish!

I hope I convinced you above that if you don’t currently have OPI, you should definitely consider buying some! To me, they aren’t inexpensive but still I think they are worth the money!
Here are my top two recommendations!

Left: OPI Natural Nail Base Coat– This makes your nail polish last even longer! It dries super quick and allows you to smoothly apply your polish! It also goes on clear.
Center: OPI Nail Lacquer in Sweetheart– I have been dying to buy this one for a super long time and finally purchased it two weeks ago. It is perfect for any season and is appropriate for all occasions! It is my go-to polish!
Right: OPI Nail Lacquer in Rally Pretty Pink This is in the Serena Williams collection & is an awesome mix of pink & gold. It looks amazing too over black nail polish because it gives off a gold tint!

Let me know what your favorite OPI colors are because I would love to try them!
