Essie Shine of the Times

Hey guys!

Today I have some simple negative space nail art featuring two of my absolute favourite polishes!

For the manicure I started off with a cobalt blue base of Chanel Vibrato on all my nails - on my ring finger and pinky I only painted part of the nail and cleaned up the edges of the negative space nail art with a clean-up brush dipped in acetone. Afterwards I applied Essie Shine of the Times on my pinky and ring finger.


Close up!


I am in LOVE with this nail art!

Fall

Hey guys!

Today I have some fall stamping nail art to share with you!

For the manicure I started off with an off-white base of Barry M Coconut on all my nails. Afterwards I used the Born Pretty BPL-024 stamping plate and a lot of different polishes (the mustard yellow Barry M Mustard, the burnt orange OPI It's a Piazza Cake, the green Essie Going Incognito, and the red Essie Dress to Kilt).


Close up!


It was mostly the yellow and the orange polish that showed up on the stamp, but I still really like how it turned out anyways!

CND Nightspell Collection

Hey guys!

Today I have a swatch and review of the new CND Vinylux Nightspell collection to share with you!
This collection is SPONSORED by Insight Cosmetics Group, but everything I write about it is my own and honest opinion.

These polishes are all swatched on my bare nails and topped with a coat of CND Vinylux Weekly Top Coat.

First up I have Eternal Midnight, which is a deep purple with an aqua blue shimmer.
The formula on this one is okay - it is a little on the thin side and it does need three coats to be completely opaque.

Next is Berry Boudoir - a deep berry crelly polish.
This formula is on the thin and runny side, which means it also needs three layers to achieve full opacity.


Next up I have Mercurial, which is an awesome gunmetal shimmer.
The formula was great - not too thin and not too thick. And best of all; it only needs two thin coats or one thicker coat to be opaque.

Time for this stunning dusty purple shade: Lilac Eclipse.
The formula on this one is perfect - just a little on the thicker side, which makes it easier to apply and control. It does need two coats to be completely opaque though, but the dry-time is great as well.


Next up is Viridian Veil, which is a frosty, metallic teal.
The formula is great and it is opaque in two easy coats.


Close up!


Lastly I have Hypnotic Dreams - a really unique metallic multichrome shimmer that goes from green to gold to pink.
The formula is on the thinner side, and it needs three layers to reach full opacity.


Close up!


Concluding remarks:
The shades in this collection are really unique and perfect for fall. Most of the formulas are on the thinner side, but all manageable with a little patience.
