OPI Come to Poppy and Essie Chubby Cheeks

16 Aug

It has been a while since I have posted here. I have gotten lazy or more like my morning workouts exhaust me! Today I have 2 of my favorite colors this summer. I have worn them a few times each.

OPI Come to Poppy:

I originally bought this because I loved the name of the color but this gets a big thumbs up! I have it on my toes right now and my bf complimented me on it this weekend. Score! (This is 2 coats)

Essie Chubby Cheeks:

How cute is that name? And the color is a beautiful dusty coral. Unfortunately I have major wear and you can see the beginning of it in these pictures. This is 2 coats.

I have been using Seche Base and Seche Vite on my recent manicures and I love how it leaves my nails. I am too lazy to sit around and wait for my nails to dry.

New manicure tomorrow night! (Will probably post this on Friday)

More manicures

19 Jul

I have decided to stop numbering these manicures because I always lose track. Here are some fairly recent ones:

Sinful ColorsSeaweed:

This went on very smooth in two coats, and guess what? It’s a dupe for OPI Stranger Tides!

OPICome to Poppy:

This is from OPI’s Nice Stems collection. I wanted this mostly for the name, but I absolutely love this color. It does look a bit frosty with the flash, but it is a very nice summer color. This is two coats.

EssieMeat Balls

This is a “black label” Essie that I have been wanting for a while. It was hard to find because it is certainly mislabeled a lot! Some websites list it as Meet Balls while others have it as Meat Balls. Well I found it on eBay and the official name is Meat Balls! This is a beautiful mauve colored nail polish with some gold flecks in it. This I think, is 3 coats.

Wet N WildMagic Trident

This is from WnW’s Mermaid’s Cove collection. Magic Trident is a bright, frosty orange but it is beautiful! I think it is such a fun color and definitely a good pedicure color as well. This is two coats.

And finally,

EssieChubby Cheeks

I have this on my toes and hands right now, but I don’t have an actual manicure picture. I found Chubby Cheeks at Ulta. Looking at Essie.com, it doesn’t seem like it is a part of their permanent line. (It says it is unavailable) You can certianly find it for cheap at Amazon.com, but I happened to be at Ulta and I needed a few more dollars to make a coupon work. This color is a dusty coral and according to Essie.com it is a creamy bright red-orange sunet. Okay, I am not sure if it looks like that on my nails though. I want to do a comparison one day of Color Club‘s Love Links and this color. A friend of mine bought China Glaze‘s Life Preserver and she says it is very similar to this color. (She has this Essie too). I don’t have that color, but I will see if I can borrow it.

Now I don’t know what color to paint my nails tomorrow! I have been very annoyed with my nails lately. Chipping starts the same day now! My nails are just splitting once again and I don’t think Nail Envy is helping anymore!

Photo dump!

Just pictures this time!

Manicure #19 – China Glaze Sexy in the City. Going to trade this one. I loved it in the bottle, but hated it on me.

Manicure #20 – L’Oreal Yellow Seahorse. Yellow isn’t me and even though you can see VNL, I am keeping it. It’s a HTF polish!

Manicure #21 – L’Oreal Coral Starfish. Love this color. I don’t have pictures, but Pink Shells is to die for too. I haven’t used the blue one yet. L’Oreal did a great job on this collection!

Manicure #22 – Sally  Hansen Complete Manicure in Barracuda. I love this color, but please forgive the nasty cuticles and messed up nails. I will definitely be wearing this again, but allowing more dry time in between coats.

Manicure #23 – Color Club Revealed. I didn’t think I was going to like this, but I do. It looks so much better in other lights. Lots of shimmer! I think I like this better than Essie’s Tard Deco.

Pedicure #9 – Color Club Ultra Astral and Starry Temptress topcoat. I love this collection so much, but it is such a pain to take off. I still love you glitter!

Backlog! Here are my last few manicures and pedicures:

Revlon Pretty in Papaya:

Okay so I have no idea what is going on with my pictures right now, but this nail polish is wonderful. OMG it smells delicious! Application on this was great except I didn’t wait that long for my topcoat, so there were some drag marks.

Pedicure – Sinful Colors Tappin’ Nails

This is a very nice foil orange. I swear, Sinful Colors seem to be one coaters because I had even coverage in one coat!

Manicure – Essie Splash of Grenadine

I honestly don’t understand why this is called Splash of Grenadine. To me, Grenadine is more red. This is a beautiful color, but it required 3 coats! I don’t remember it taking this much last year. A beautiful color, but it may be a pedicure color. I had some lifting issues after 3 coats.

Pedicure – Essie Lapis of Luxury

This is a pedicure color, because like Splash of Grenadine, this color takes 3 coats. I have received a lot of compliments on my “periwinkle” toes.

Manicure – Color Club Love Links

I love, love, love this color. This is another beautiful coral. Application on this was even after 1 coat, but since I love my 2 coats, I had to do it.

Okay so somehow I will figure out how to fix these pictures. I have no idea why there is so much white space.

After Monday I should have a massive haul picture. My Zoyas will probably be in by then! Then I will have to do a collection post.

>I painted my nails this past Saturday with Essie Pretty Edgy:

Application was just okay on this. The first coat was extremely runny and thin. Second coat was much better and evened out the color. This reminds me of green grass. Very springy! I painted my nails kind of fast so I had a few chipping issues. I decided to update my manicure with some glitter yesterday.

Here is Sinful Colors Green Ocean without flash:

This was a bit goopy, but that can be expected from a nail polish that has glitter and some foil pieces. This reflects mostly blue.

Finally, my pedicure color. I refuse to take pictures of my toes. They get made fun of a lot by friends and family! Let’s just say they look like lollipops or lightbulbs.

I am wearing Sinful Colors Timbleberry, painted on Saturday also:

Application was smooth in one coat, but I am a 2 coater. This color is a pinky coral. Perfect for summer!
I think the only time my hand and toes every match are during the summer!
I’ll be changing my polish tonight. Look out for the updates soon.
