Vacation Series: Sand & Stilettos in the Caribbean

Welcome to day two of my Vacation Series! I'm featuring a week's worth of polishes that are beachy, summery, and lots of fun to prepare for my week-long cruise that departs on Saturday! I am so excited and want to share my excitement with you. Today, I decided to try two polishes I haven't used before. This manicure came out so great. Here it is!

just realized how blurry this one is- sorry!

Heres's the Megan Miller polish "Caribbean" on its own- definitely just as gorgeous!

Sand & Stilettos, Caribbean

What I Used:
1 coat of OPI Nail Envy
4 coats of Megan Miller Caribbean
1 coat of Funky Fingers Sand & Stilettos
1 coat of Poshe Top Coat

Bottom Line:
At first, I only planned to do Sand &  Stilettos as an accent detail on one nail. Well... I fell in love with how it looked on that one finger and just had to put it on the rest of them! I'm glad I did- this manicure is a lot of fun and so pretty! Caribbean was really sheer and took four coats to be perfectly opaque on all ten nails; it seemed fine on most with three coats but I wanted to add a fourth to make sure it'd look okay. It has a jelly-ish make-up, which was interesting and unexpected. I'd love to do a comparison of Caribbean to Turquoise & Caicos and Mermaid's Tears to see how the three would compare. Megan Miller polishes are $12/bottle and 3-free. Here is Megan Miller's official website.

  5. Ohh I Love the Megan Miller Bottle!

  6. The teal bottle is so cool!!! I have a hard time swallowing that price, though! I love S&S, I can't wait to whip it back out this summer, have fun on your cruise!
