Essie Luxeffects Collection

Here’s my short little review of the Essie Luxeffects collection! I’m really enjoying all of these glitter top coats so far!

I recently used “A Cut Above” in my Valentine’s Day Ombré nail tutorial, and realized just how hard it is to get that chunky glitter off my nails! I ended up soaking my hands in nail polish remover for a couple minutes so loosen everything up and that seemed to do the trick.

So far my favourite polish from this collection is “Set in Stones”, which is the chunky silver glitter. It looks great with just about any colour.

Have you purchased any polishes from this collection? Which one is your favourite?

Scion FR-S Nails

We’re days away from the opening of the Canadian International Autoshow here in Toronto!

What better way to celebrate than to create a nail design for one of the most anticipated vehicles of the show. The Scion FR-S.

To achieve this look I painted my nails in Essie Licorice. Once completely dry I used Sally Hansen nail art pens to draw in my design!

Are you headed to the Autoshow this year? What are you most excited to see?

Nail Polish Organization

Here’s a little peek into my nail polish collection and storage solutions!


 
As you can see I have quite a bit of nail polish, and it can be quite a challenge to keep it all organized.
 
My favourite way to organize my polishes is to use the colour wheels I briefly mentioned in my video. Every time I purchase a new polish, I paint a swatch onto a numbered wheel. The numbers correspond to an excel spreadsheet!
 
Nail Polish Colour Wheels

This is a great way to organize your polish because it makes it really easy to select coordinating colours, and it really helps me just choose a colour to begin with!
