Essie- hang up the heels

Hello everyone and welcome to another nail blast post 🙂

Today I want to discuss with you, Essie’s- Hang up the heels.

Hang up the heels is a jet black with a jade shimmer and belong to Essie’s after party collection (2016)

Which also includes:

Bubbles only– classed as a creamy bright burgundy crème

Caviar bar– dark navy blue almost black crème

Drop the gown– bright ruby red crème

Find me a man-nequin– medium royal blue crème

Gala-vanting– maroon red crème

Model clicks– aubergine wine creme

Off duty style- dark teal crème

Spiked with style- dark oxblood red crème

Surrounded by studs– a very dark sapphire blue

Turn and pose– dark plum purple creme

Wrap party-very dark almost black jade green creme

Plain Swatch of hang up the heels with one accent nail (venture to the venue,Essie)

Essie Hang up the heels is a jet black with a jade shimmer and fully covers in three coats.

This black is a beautiful solid colour and despite seeing the jade shimmer in the bottle, this unfortunately like many recent Essie shimmers, completely disappears on the nail.

Although this shimmer doesn’t show up in the nail it does still add a extra depth to this black, compared to other solid blacks that do come across as a bit dull, hang up the heels type of black does seem sort of hypnotise you and demands your attention.

The formula for this black sit firmly on the average scale, it’s a little watery but this is hardly noticeable or causes much trouble, the only thing I will say is that you need a good base coat as this black is a stainer!

If you’re read my post before you will know I love showing you all the ways my chosen polish can be part of your life, in more ways than just your fingertips.

Below is everything that would look awesome paired with hang up the heels and everything it has inspired and help create.

Me and my family love wax melts and creating an atmosphere through the sense of smell, if hang up the heels was transformed into a wax melt, this us what I think it would smell like.

Reading by the fire by DIO

Fill your whole room with warm notes of freshly burned cedar-wood and the irresistible aroma of aged parchment and vanilla! A winter fragrance that produces an exceptionally strong throw!

If hang up the heels was to pair with and inspire an outfit I think this modern, classy evening outfit would look awesome with hang up the heels on the fingertips.

A off the shoulder lace, black long dress paired with green and black ankle strap heels and a emerald green suade biker styled Jacket.

A green gem spike statement necklace, a black and green bowed clutch bag and dark green eyeshadow and a bold black cat flick design completes this dramatic evening outfit.

If hang up the heels was to inspire home decor I think this smart bedroom perfectly represents this Essie colour and vibe.

Black geometric flower feature wallpaper paired with a black velvet rose bedding set and a black wire metal, clear celling lamp hanging above.

A stripped black & white perfume bottle feature artwork, black dog figurine with diamond coller feature accent item and a black worn effect rug at the foot of the bed completes this sophisticated bedroom.

Overall Essie- hang up the heels is a beautiful and useful black that has a depth and vibrancy I find other black polishs lack.

If your needing a good, true black I’d would highly recommend this one, it’s a great formulated black that leaves your nails feeling super glossy and sophisticated just remember a good base coat is needed, because of the strong pigment, it like to leave an lasting impression even after you have removed it from your nails!

Essie-limo scene

Hello everyone and welcome to another nail blast post.Today I want to discuss Essie’s Limo Scene.
Limo scene is a sheer milky white with a slight tint of peachy pink and is part of Essie spring Collection Madison Ave.
Which also includes:
Sugar daddy– sheer pale pink
Chic boutique– a sheer bubble gum pink
Pink diamond– a bright pearlscent pink with shimmer
Power lunch– a warm sheer nude
Shop till I drop- a sheer coral orangePlain Swatch of limo sceneLimo scene is a sheer milky white polish with a hint of peachy pink.
Because this is a sheer polish no matter how many coates you use you will always see your nail line, I found that if you want to get this colour as strong as possible, the best way to do this is to use four coats, any more and this polish starts to look odd.

Limo scene is a very sheer polish that unfortunately is not the easiest to work with, it does tend to bleed and pool around the nails quiet badly and can streak if not used with a soft hand.

Despite the difficulty in application this is a beautiful french Mani nude, the only issue in colour I did find is that, the soft peachy pink you see mixed in the bottle completely disappears on the nail, leaving a milky nude colour instead.

Limo-scene is great for French or subtle manis but you’ll probably find you have colours very similar to this in your collection, due to the fact that the unique peachy pink colour unfortunately doesn’t show up on the nail. 

This polish life in your collection will depend if you love it enough to put up with it’s many faults.

Art swatch limo- scene as a base topped with gold & black BP polish.If you’re read my post before you will know I love showing you all the ways my chosen polish can be part of your life, in more ways than just your fingertips.

Me and my family love wax melts and creating an atmosphere through the sense of smell, if limo scene was to be transformed into a wax melt this is what I think this polish would smell like.

Channel number 5 by button itThis will evoke the luxurious smells of the first perfume launched by French couturier Gabrielle “Coco”. This highly respected and provocative fragrance exudes a strong and prominent smell associated with peach, orange and citron.
This initial aroma is the most pronounced as your candle starts to burn, filling up your room with a scent that is then enhanced by light undertones of jasmine, clove, geranium and neroli.
Incorporated into the formulation for this distinctive fragrance is a delightful trace aftertaste of musk, cedar, patchouli and French vanilla.

If limo scene was to be paired with and inspire an outfit I think this sophisticated chic outfit would look awesome with limo scene on the fingertips.
A white & sheer jacket dress paired with studed creamy heels and a marble triangle statement necklace.
A rose handbag, dramatic white cat strike eye make up and bow beret hat completes the bold evening look.If limo scene was to inspire home decor I think this modern bedroom is a great example of this Essie vibe and shade.
White branches feature wallpaper paired with white subtle stripped bedding set and sheer roses celling lampshade hanging above.
A milder white roses as feature artwork, a spiral contemporary statue as feature accent item and white mix pattern rug at the foot of the bed completes this subtle, fresh bedroom.Overall this sheer Essie is a middle of the road polish. Original made for a French manicure this nail polish does fulfill its purpose but if I’m honest as sheer nude base colour or as the tool for a French mani, there are better out there and if you have a choice I’d explore other options.

Essie- Picture Perfect

Hello everyone and welcome to another nail blast post 🙂

Today I wanted to discuss Essie’s Picture Perfect gel conture.

Picture perfect is a sheer ivory white with extremely fine gold glitter and is part of Essie Bridal X reem collection 2018.

Which also includes:

Moments to Mrs- a medium pink jelly with irridesent pink glitter

Handmaid to honour- a rose foil

Your golden- a soft yellow gold foil

Forever family- a deep ruby pink with gold and pink duo chrome

Getting intricate– a bright baby blue creme
This collection was is inspired by the designer Reem Acra.
Reem Acta is a fashion designer born in Beirut, Lebanon, known for her eponymous bridal gown line and her ready to wear collection.
This what she had to say about her Essie nail polish collection.
Partnering with Essie, I was able to bring my bridal design aesthetic to life. I dreamed this Essie Gel Couture wedding collection up as a royal affair.
A grand party celebrating a big day, equating its magic to opening a jewelry box and peeking inside. 


Swatch of picture perfect
Unfortunately I have only my art swatches to show picture perfect but because I used a very simple design I believe it show Essie’s picture perfect polish clearly.

Picture perfect by Essie is a jelly sheer ivory white with extra fine gold glitter, because of this polish having a jelly like formula even with lots of coats you will never get full colour coverage. For my nails I used three coats and I think this is the polish’s happy place, I did try with more but it just made the nails look odd, for best coverage id recommend sticking to three coats or for a very sheer tint use less, this polish even looks nice as a subtle topper over other soft milky shades.

The formula for this polish was a bit watery and the colour does seem to gather most where you place your first stroke, mine gathered at the top of my nail, to avoid this I suggest apply a coat with a sponge, focusing on the area it has become patchy in, this should help even the colour out.

Overall this is a beautiful subtle polish that is great for doing soft delicate Manis or adding that extra subtle sparkle.
But be warned because this polish is so delicate it will unfortunately show every imperfect up.

Due to a medical condition (vitamin deficiency)  my nails are slightly yellow where they should be white this unfortunately shows it up.
If you’ve read my post before you will know I love showing you all the ways my chosen polish can be part of your life, in more ways then just your fingertips.

Below is everything that would look awesome paired with picture perfect and everything it has inspired and help create.

Me and my family love wax melts and creating an atmosphere through the sense of smell, if Picture Perfect was to be transformed into a wax melt this is what I think it would smell like 🙂

Diamonds by top to toe scents

A floral, oriental scent, with notes of patchouli and freesia and a base of amber and sweet vanilla. Smells similar to Armani ‘Diamonds

 

If picture perfect was to be paired with and inspire an outfit this delicate, sweet outfit would look awesome with picture perfect on the fingertips X

A white lace maxi dress paired with white peep toe lace and bow heels and a white straight cut women suit jacket with a lace trim.

A lace and pearl chocker, lace and pearl vintage hand bag and white glitter eyeshadow complete this soft, subtle beauty style outfit.
If picture perfect was to inspire home decor I think this delicate, feminine style bedroom is a perfect representation of this Essie shade and vibe.

A white paint brush effect feature wallpaper paired with white ruffled side panel bedding set and a Boho styled round lantern ceiling light hanging above .

A knitted Boho styled lace wall tassel feature artwork, a coral rose on a glass stand as the feature accent item and  a white on white flur de lurs embossed rug at the foot of the bed complete this fresh, elegant bedroom. Overall picture perfect is a beautiful jelly polish that has a delicate, sophisticated, elegant vibe that I think you’d be hard pressed to find in other polishes.

For a jelly, it has a ok formula and I believe this Essie will be useful to anyone’s nail polish collection, whether it’s creating soft Manis or adding that extra sparkle and depth to another nail shade.

This is one Essie that will be showing up in many of my future sets.

Flashbulb fuchsia

Purple with a purpose

OPI Ink

Plain nail polish Swatch

Opi significant other is a bright frosted lilic purple with a bright green shimmer and fully covers in 3 coats.

Significant other is a unique glowing colour that has overall a quiet smooth formula, the only problems I came across is that for the first two coats it is quiet sheer and has a little bit of a watery consistency but this is easy fixed with just being careful how much you put on the brush.

All though I stopped at three coats in certain light you can just about see my nail line, I did attempt with more coats but with the type of polish it is that slight sheerness never completely disappears.

Dispite a few faults, this a beautiful frosty polish, that no matter how hard I’ve looked I can’t find a dupe for this beautiful, glowing gemstone purple with contrasting, striking shimmer.

This is a hypnotic, intense colour that will have everyone admiring your fingers and asking where they can get it too!

Champagne toast by the pour house


Crisp, effervescent notes of sparkling champagne take the spotlight, as nuances of sweet, succulent nectarine playfully tease and tantalize the senses with lip-smacking glee! An illuminating base of juicy, ripe black currant completes this festive accord, accentuating this buoyant blend, and creating a sentiment of merriment with its delightfully cheerful ambiance of scent.

If significant other was to be worn with and inspire an outfit, I think this classy evening outfit would look awesome with significant other on the fingertips.

A purple belted, wrapped dress paired with purple glitter ankle strap heels and a lace purple shrug. A purple marble effect cluch bag, a purple dragon fly in a glass heart necklace and purple gradient eyeshadow complete this stunning evening outfit x

If significant other was to inspire home decor I think this seductive bedroom is a perfect representation of this opi shade & vibe.

A purple rose feature wallpaper paired with a purple gradient flower bedding set and a purple celling lampshade with crystals hanging above.

A purple paint splatter tree feature artwork, a delicate vintage flower vase as feature accent item and a purple line rug at the foot of the bed completed this sensual bedroom.

Overall significant other is a beautiful, unique, glowing purple that you won’t find anywhere else.

This alluring purple truly makes you feel like you are wearing a purple fire stone on your fingers due to this glowing under colour that creates this hypnotic shade.

This will be going straight on my favourite shelf and I suggest anyone who doesn’t have this to grab it as soon as possible, you won’t regret it x

Essie- All tied up

Hello everyone and welcome to another nail blast post 🙂

Today I want to discuss Essie- All tied up.

A medium rose orange bronze with gold shimmer and is part of Essie 2012 bikini so teeny collection.

Which also includes:

Off the shoulder– a medium magenta pink- creme

Mojito madness– a bright shamrock green- creme

Fear or desire– a medium tangerine orange- creme

Cascade cool– a medium taffy pink with slight purple undertones

Bikini so teeny– a light sky blue bordering on cornflower blue- creme finish

Art and colour swatch

All tied up is described by Essie as a warm bronze with gold shimmer but to me this is definitely not a bronze, what you actually get is a warm rose terracotta with a gold shimmer.

Unfortunately my plain Swatch got deleted by accident so for the swatches I have only my art swatches but I still think it show the colour of this Essie well.

Essie all tied up is a beautiful colour that dries almost the same as in the bottle, the only issue with the colour is that the beautiful gold shimmer in the bottle complete disappear on the nail 😦

All tied up fully covers in three coats and there really is very little faults with this smooth creme, if I was being picky it a little patchy when applying the first coat but this is easily covered in coat two. This terracotta doesn’t streak or bleed and is great for day to day nails or when jazzed up, awesome for party nails with a subtle classy vibe.

If you’ve read my post before you will know I love to show you all the ways my chosen polish can be part of your life, in more ways then just your fingertips X

Below is everything that would look awesome paired with all tied up and everything it has inspired and helped create.

Me and my family love wax melts and creating an atmosphere through the sense of smell, if all tied up was transformed into a wax melt this is what I think it would smell like 🙂

Amber romance by Gorgeous candles

Fragrance-Creamy vanilla flowers with a hint of fruity, licorice-like cherry sitting on top. This stuff is sweet, strong and very familiar.

If all tied up was to be worn with and inspire an outfit I think this Boho styled outfit would look awesome with all tied up on the fingertips.

A burnt terracotta cowl neck top paired with a fake leather skirt and suade buckle chunky heeled boots.

A heart pendant with burnt orange flowers, a terracotta and bow clutch bag and smokey terracotta and yellow eyeshadow complete this chic, stylish daytime look.

If all tied up was to inspire home Decor I think this bright, cozy bedroom is a great example of the colour and vibe of this warm Essie polish.

Terracotta squared feature wallpaper paired with a various shade stripped bedding set and a see through celling lamp shade hanging above.

A pumpkin and sunflower feature artwork, a terracotta fairy sat on a tea cup feature accent item and a terracotta & orange squiggle rug flat at the foot of the bed complete this warm, bright bedroom.

Overall all tied up is a beautiful warm colour that is great for any type of Mani.

This beautiful Essie is practically perfect and something that will be taking pride and place on my favourite shelf.

Models own- Goose egg

Hello everyone and welcome to another nail blast.

Today I want to discuss Goose Egg by models own.

Goose egg is a medium yellow with slight green undertones and black flecks, this polish has a textured finish and belongs to models own speckled eggs collection.

Which also includes:

Dove– a pastel medium pink with black flecks- textured finish

Swan– a pastel lilic purple with black flecks- textured finish

Magpie– a pastel medium mint green with black flecks- textured finish

Duck– a cornflower blue with black flecks- textured finish

Plain Swatch of goose egg in day light

Goose egg is a medium yellow with hint of green undertones and black flecks and goes on in three coats with a textured finish.

As this is a multi mixed polish ( has more then just a base colour) I found it best to apply two full coats and to sponge the last coat on to get more of the black flecks onto the nail.

Goose eggs formula is rather thick and needs to be worked quick as it dries really quickly but apart from a little streaking, this polish doesn’t bleed and isn’t too hard to work with.

If you don’t like the texture feel of goose egg a smooth strong top coat can make this texture become slick.

Personal to me goose egg is a unique polish that can make some beautiful Manis if you don’t mind the rather sickly yellow tone to the base.

Art swatch, back to school inspired

If you’ve read my post before you will know I love showing you all the ways my chosen polish can be part of your life, in more ways than just your fingertips.

Below is everything that would look awesome paired with goose egg and everything it’s helped inspire and create x

Me and my family love wax melts and creating an atmosphere through the scents of smell, if goose egg was turned into a wax melt this is what I think it would smell like x

Summertime splash by FOS. Candle co

Sugary! Citrusee!! Watermeloneee Goodness!!!! This is where watermelon chunks meet iced cold lemonade. With bursts of lemony spring water and sweet southern sugar, this is an ultra-refreshing pick-me-up scent! Although it’s a natural summer scent, you’ll love it any time of the year.

If goose egg was to be paired with and inspire an outfit I think this quirky retro-ish outfit would look awesome with goose egg on the fingertips.

A yellow and black splatter blouse paired with yellow and black checkered trousers and jelly yellow ankle heels.

A circle and block retro statement necklace, a suade yellow handbag and smokey yellow and black eyeshadow and eyeliner complete this bold, striking look.

If goose egg was to inspire home decor I think this contemporary styled bedroom represent the colour and vibe perfectly.

A yellow and black flower feature wallpaper paired with black and yellow flower bedding set with a tassel yellow celling lampshade hanging above.

A bright yellow titmouse birds and leaves feature artwork, a yellow flower dress dummy feature accent item and a yellow and black shattered effect rug at the foot of the bed complete this bold bedroom.

Overall goose egg is a unique, quirky polish that gives any Mani a contemporary look.

This model own polish is a great middle ground between a sand texture polish and a crelly and something I’ll be using in many manis.

This polish life in your collection is based on if you can stomach the yellow base colour that lends towards a sickly shade.

Essie Gold guilding

Hello everyone and welcome to another nail blast.

Today I want to discuss Essie- Gold Guilded

gold guilded is a warm rose gold metallic and is part of Essie Gel Conture holiday collection.

Which also includes:

It- pearl- a very light muted pastel lilic

Diamond in the cuff- a bright metallic ivory with silver shimmer

Jade to measure– a bright metallic jade green

Amethyst noir-a very dark Burgundy plum creme

Rue de la ruby– deep ruby red creme

Taupe of the line- a dark crepe pink toned nude creme

This is what essie had to say about the inspiration for this collection.

Inspired by the artistic genius of the legendary jewelers of Paris, Essie’s Winter Gel Couture Collection with gorgeous shades invite you to stroll down the rue de la ruby and pick a holiday gift shimmering with high-carat splendor. Searching for a shade to fit every occasion? Look no further! From a classic fiery red for a chic statement to a lustrous bronze that takes any look to couture heights, the Essie Gel Couture holiday 2017 collection adds a gemmy touch of elegance any way you accessorize this festive time of year.

Plain Swatch of gold gilded

Gold guilded is a beautiful brass metallic rose gold and went on fully in three coats.

Because this is a metallic polish you do unfortunately see brush strokes even if you float the brush but otherwise this formula was smooth, didn’t bleed and dried rather quickly.

The one fault I did find with this essie was despite putting a strong top coat over the top this polish chipped straight away, which was a real shame as it’s a beautiful colour and alright formula otherwise.

If I was to use this polish again I think I will save this one for when I’m not going to be doing a lot with my hands, maybe use it as a special going out polish, id recommend anyone using this polish to be wary of chipping and maybe protect your nails a little more then perhaps you would usually.

Art swatch

If your read my post before you will know I love showing all the ways my chosen polish can be part of your life, in more ways then your fingertips.

Below is everything gold guilding would look awesome paired with and inspired and help create.

Me and my family love wax melts and creating an atmosphere through the sense of smell, if gold guilding was turned into a wax melts this is what I think it would smell like.

WARM CASHMERE by Yankee candle

Wrap yourself in luxury with sumptuous notes of calming sandalwood and exotic patchouli.

Fragrance Notes

Top notes – Sun Kissed Orange.

Mid notes – Cashmere Wood, Golden Amber, Cardamom.

Base notes– Creamy Sandalwood, Sueded Musk, White Patchouli, French Vanilla.

If gold guilding was to paired with and inspired an outfit I think this chic outfit would look awesome with gold guilded on the fingertips.

A rose gold ruffled play suit paired with chunky ankle tie heels and a full length velvet jacket.

A leaf gold necklace, a chevon rose gold handbag and rose gold glitter eyeshadow completes this chic, party outfit.

If gold guilding was to inspired home Decor I think this sophisticated bedroom fits the vibe and shade of this Essie polish perfectly.

A rose gold marble effect feature wallpaper paired with a middle panel geometric rose gold bedding set and a half rose gold half clear dome celling lamp hanging above.

A ribbon pattern rose gold key features wall art, gold sitting women figurine feature accent item and rose gold marble rug at the foot of the bed complete this smart glam bedroom.

Overall this is a beautiful warm rose gold metallic and is perfect for a classy night out.

But I would only use this as a special polish due to its delicate nature, if you want a more everyday rose gold I’d look elsewhere.

Essie Mixtaupe

Hello everyone and welcome to another nail blast post.

Today I want to discuss mixtaupe by Essie.

A milky nude with a hint of pink and is part of Essie fall 2017 collection inspired by the 90s.

Which also includes;

Saved by the Bella- a strong bright baby pink creme

As if- a bright periwinkle blue creme

Girly grunge- a Heather purple metallic finish

Dressed to the nineties- a dark indigo with a bright green shimmer

Knee high life- a dark raspberry creme

The thing i love about essie is that they always do a shade story on each collection.

Here is essie fall collection shade story.

Plain swatch

Mixtaupe by Essie is a beautiful creamy nude shade with the slightest hint of pink within the mixture, it took me three coats to get strong colour and full coverage.

Mixtaupe is a beautiful nude but like all nudes this does streak but it isn’t the worse streaker that I’ve come across and this problem is easy fixed by floating the brush.

I do love this colour the only issue I found was that because I’m very paled skinned it does give me a little bit of a lobster or mannequin hands look and although it does have a hint of pink you can only see this in bright daylight, in inside light and dull natural light this pink unfortunately disappears which is a shame as it makes this warm creamy nude into something spectacular.

Despite the slight mannequin hands style this polish gives me, I am loving this nude shade and will be wearing it in lots of future manis.

Art swatch

If you’re read my post before you will know I love showing you all the ways my chosen polish can be part of your life in more ways then just your finger tips x

Below is everything mixtaupe would look awesome paired with and everything it has inspired and helped create.

Me and my family love wax melts and creating an atmosphere through the sense of smell, if mixtaupe was transformed into a wax melts this is what I think it would smell like.

Rainbow Shake by Yankee Candle

A sophisticated sugar rush—juicy, sparkling fruits blended with sweet vanilla, finished with whipped cream, rainbow sprinkles, and berry drizzle.

Fragrance Notes:
Top notes: Creamy Pineapple Whip, Caramelized Apple, Toasted Almond
Mid notes: Peach, Black Currant Drizzle, Italian Orange
Base notes: Cinnamon, Vanilla Cream, Raspberry Frosting

If mixtaupe was to be paired with and inspire an outfit I think this retro, unique outfit would look awesome with mixtaupe on the fingertips.

A tinted pink boob tube paired with tinted pink ruffle shorts with a creamy white see through star long shirt over top.

Soft pink ribbon heels, a retro creamy white mini backpack and creamy nude and pink gradient eye-shadow complete this cute, fun look.

If mixtaupe was to inspire home decor I think this sophisticated chic bedroom fit the vibe and shade of the polish perfectly.

A line drawn faces feature wallpaper paired with a creamy squared stitched bedding set and a round lace celling lamp hanging above.

A block text ( life is a party, dress like it) feature artwork, nude coloured women with spring flowers in hair feature accent item and Morocco styles creamy nude and soft pink rug at the foot of the bed completes this subtle, feminine styled bedroom.

Mixtaupe is a beautiful nude that has depth and subtle warmth that other nudes I’ve come across just don’t have.

The formula is smooth and the colour is versatile for any type of mani you desire.

Like my favorite mix tape I’ll be playing this one over and over again.
