Trying some of the Spring 2014 colours from Vinylux reminded me how much I really like this system.  I used it without a base coat, and it lasted for much longer than any of my other nail polishes have recently, so the system really does work! The colours included in the collection are: Powder My Nose, […]

Essie Winter 2013 Collection

This year, you can forget about wearing those blacks, deep purples, and deep blues. The winter collections do have strong colours, but they’re a step away from the deep dark shades that we’ve seen so much of in previous years. Essie’s Winter 2013 collection is a mix of classic bordeaux shades, blues, and purples. The […]

OPI San Francisco Collection and Swatches

Essie 2013 Fall Colour Collection

This, my friends, is a collection I love because there are so many rich colours in it.  Three creams, two shimmers, and a holograhic oil slick shade that is just perfect.
