This one is Miami Nice:
This one is Wrapped in Rubies:
This one is Beach Bum Blu:
This is Penny Talk (from the recent Mirror Metallics collection):
And lastly, Nothing Else Metals (also from the Mirror Metallics collection):
I wanted to share with you the swatch of Nothing Else Metals. It's gorgeous! I have 4/5 of the colours in the collection and they're all super amazing. It's a bit different than what Essie normally does and it definitely has a wow factor. I found the application smooth, however if you have a lot of nail ridges/imperfections you may want to use a base coat that is a ridge filler. I wasn't too picky on it. I'd love to find a glass like finish topcoat, does anyone have suggestions?
Here is the whole lot from my Essie's on sale and I can't resist haul. ;) Aren't they so pretty?
NOW...I've been getting overwhelmed with all the samples and such that I've been receiving. I've been trying to be objective in selecting 3 subscriptions to stay with..and I just can't decide!! I don't know what's wrong with me! So, I decided to look at how much I actually spend in one year...brace yourself... approximately $2007.00!!!! That, is INSANE! It wouldn't be so bad if that was cosmetics (Which I don't even want to add to this total!!) but that's just SAMPLE boxes!! Holy smokes. I have to do something about that, no? Have you checked what you spend annually? My gut is telling me to drop Glymm and Julep. Glymm, because it has been consistently getting worse and Julep because I have too much polish. Next on the list would be Luxe box, because my box sucked really bad and we're not even getting the winter box until end of December/beginning of January. They originally were supposed to ship end of October AND they've had my money since mid September. How could a company take my money 3 months in advance before I even receive anything?
Have a lovely weekend, girls!
