NOTD - Essie Lady Like and Lace Tips

Hello Lovelies!

Today I am wearing Essie "Lady Like" - one of my favourite polishes! It is a nude pink creme polish and requires two coats for full opacity. I wore this as my manicure for a day and then got the urge to do some stamping. So using Konad plate M57 and the lace tip design and my trusty Konad Black stamping polish I stamped the lace design over the tips of my nails. I am really happy with how it turned out, so simple and quick and a great way to add art to your nails!

Barry M Gelly Blue Grape

Hey Lovelies!

Today I am wearing Barry M Gelly "Blue Grape" which is a stunning cobalt blue creme polish. Application required two coats for full opacity and the formula was really good. As per all of the other Gelly polishes it is super shiny and with this on my nails I think it really does look like gel nails!

I was most looking forward to this polish out of the latest 5 they have just brought out as their summer Gellys! It didn't disappoint as it is such a stunning blue! I have two others that I am going to try out next so keep an eye out for those!

NOTD - OPI Dulce de Leche

Hey Lovelies!

Today I am wearing one of my all time favourites! I haven't worn it though in a long time but it is very dear to me as it was the polish I was wearing when my daughter entered the world!

I am wearing OPI's "Dulce de Leche" which is a nude/pink creme polish. The formula is perfect and application required two coats for full opacity!

Definitely a must have for any nail polish collection!

NOTD - Lush Lacquer Clowning Round

Hey Lovelies!

Today I am wearing OPI's "Kiss Me On My Tulips" a hot pink creme polish. I used two coats for full opacity and love the formula and application.

For my accent nail I used two coats of OPI "Alpine Snow" white creme polish and then used two coats of Lush Lacquer "Clowning Around" which is a clear base polish packed full of neon glitters in small medium and large sizes. Colours include neon blue, neon orange, neon yellow, neon pink and neon purple - this mix goes so well together and it is such a gorgeous polish! It looks like I have splattered paint over my nail! I absolutely love it!!!

NOTD: MUA Amaretto Crush

Hey lovelies!

Today I am wearing my very first polish purchased from MUA. Lately I've been on a bit of an MUA kick buying things like their new highlighter and makeup palette "Dress Me Up Too". I really rate both products and absolutely love how affordable they all are!!!

So today I am wearing "Amaretto Crush" which is a dusty pink creme polish. Most nails were fine with 2 coats but there were some that required 3 for full opacity. The formula was good and easy to apply. As much as I love the new bottle and brush my only complaint would be I always find smaller brushes harder to work with. Definitely a fan of the new bottles though very much like Essie.
