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!

Picture Polish Spring3

So the spring has come,and gone, and now is the summer. So here it is a manicure I did with Picture Polish Spring.

Picture Polish Spring1

Picture Polish Spring is a light lilac/ or dusty pink/ with scatter holo flakes. It was released this year -2016, with 4 other shades: Posey, Merge, Gala and Bluebird.  The pictures are with 3 coats that wore well and no chipping or problems until I changed the nail polish.

Picture Polish Spring3   I also did some reverse stamping with the pineapples, and added the Aloha- I think it calls for summer, not spring :) Picture Polish Spring2

Amazeness in a bottle- holo, blue, bright! Incredible bright almost turquoise blue holographic nail polish from Colors by Llarowe. It is from Spring 2014 Collection and is just awesome. Application- amazing for a holo. Longevity – very good.

Bright orange, more like sunny orange neon with shimmer- visible shimmer. I already raved about two other nail polishes from the same collection as Foxy MamaColor Club Peace,Love&Polish & Not-So-Mellow Yellow. What can I say- one of the best neon and summer nail polish collections ever released!
