Palms with ESSIE Viva Antigua! and ORLY Summer Sunset

ESSIE Viva Antigua!  ORLY Summer Sunset16

Hello all,

Today’s mani is a typical summer one, with palms and seagulls and the beautiful ESSIE Viva Antigua! and ORLY Summer Sunset.

Essie viva antigua & orly summer sunset1

ESSIE Viva Antigua! is a vibrant blue turquoise shimmer from the Essie Summer 2016 Collection. Application was nice, smooth, and required 2 coats.

Essie viva antigua & orly summer sunset13 ORLY Summer Sunset  is a nice golden yellow with visible kinda orange rusty shimmer that makes the nail polish looked like a decayed gold. Very interesting shade from the Pacific Coast Highway2016 Collection. Application- not so bad but required 3 coats for not having VNL. Stayed for good 5 days until I changed the polish.

To spice it up I did some gradient and then stamping with palms and seagulls.

I don’t have anything similar to those 2 nail polishes in my stash so if you are in a search for nice vibrant summer colors- just grab them!


Celebrate Spring 2016 with Orly Freestyle and Models Own Bikini


Today I have a manicure to celebrate the spring- neon bright with flowers!

So here it is : Orly Freestyle and Models Own Bikini. Orly Freestyle & Models Own Bikini

Orly Freestyle is a bright coral red neon polish. It is from the brand’s In the Mix Collection for Fall 2015. Of course it was very hard to photograph the exact color as it is in real life.

Models Own Bikini is a true bright highlighter neon yellow. The polish is from the Models Own Polish for Tans collection 2014.

For the nail art I did some stamping using Creative Shop Stamper with China Glaze Scandalous Shenanigans and a Born Pretty Stampling Plate BPL-030.

China Glaze Scandalous Shenanigans is probably one of the best regular nail polishes that can be used perfectly for stamping- it is very intense with perfect drying time.

Happy 2016 Spring :)

ORLY Hot Tropics is a fuchsia shimmer awesomeness. The shimmer is again on the golden side, quite visible and it gives volume to the nail polish.
