Hello ladies! Happy Tuesday! I could seriously get used to not working and lounging around all day! Well, that's probably a lie... I know I'll be mad when payday comes around. Ah well- it's worth it, if only for a few days. I will, however, say that it's so nice to have time to do my nails! I even got to give myself a pedicure yesterday! Wahoo. Loving this.
I got a few free Essies from work the other day. There was a pile of them that were all separated and not suitable to be sold, so my boss let us take some home. One of them was Essie Lion Around, an absolutely amazing pink shimmer polish:
It's pale enough to look really delicate, but opaque enough to be a two-coater. I love this polish! It didn't stand out when I first grabbed it, but I love it. The formula was amazing and it's the perfect amount of pink and shimmer to be absolutely stunning.
The reason I chose this polish is because I realized it looked like it'd be a perfect match with one of the new Mariah Carey OPIs... OPI Pink Yet Lavender. This was my favorite from the collection:
I decided to do a glitter gradient with it, and I'm glad I did because I really like this look. It'll probably be super annoying to get off, but definitely worth it. Pink Yet Lavender reminds me of Pirouhette My Whistle from the NYC Ballet Collection that OPI put out last spring. It's sort of a pink version of that glitter.
What do you think? Which of the Mariah Carey polishes did you pick? I got a few of the liquid sands... not too thrilled with them, more so bought them just to have as a part of my collection. Keep an eye out for them on the blog- should be posting them soon!
Have a great day, everyone!
