Essie Bikini So Teeny

This one has been around awhile, it's from the 2012 summer collection, and it's one of my favorites but I've never blogged about it. I have no idea why! So today is the day and I hope you love it as much as I do.
                                              This is the lovely Bikini So Teeny by Essie
As you can see, I added some polka dots in white and some silver sparkle.
Isn't this such a happy color?!
Thanks for stopping by and have a colorful day! Taniya

Sally Hansen Smooth and Perfect

Sally Hansen Smooth and Perfect Color + Care claims to be a breakthrough nail color that let's your nails breathe. It's supposed to hide nail imperfections and leave a porcelain finish. Today I have two from this collection of 8 barely-there colors. This is Sorbet and Fog.
"Enhanced with ginseng, camellia oil, and lotus to promote stronger, healthier nails", says their website. Sounds fancy!
This polish is also promising to let 20% more oxygen through to your nails. More fanciness. I don't know how one would ever know if our nails were benefitting from all of this but it sure sounds good!
By the way, these are two of the polishes from the infamous basket from the nail polish party! If you didn't see that post click on this .
Two coats and these babies were pretty nice and smooth, I must say. And I think I could hear my nails breathing a little easier. Wink! Until next time, Taniya

Essence Surfer Babe Nail Polish

This is one of a collection of four polishes that came out for the summer of 2010. This is called The World's Coolest.
Now, I would have blogged about this long ago but I didn't know about them. It's an interesting story how I got this one. But first I'll tell you about this polish. First of all, it's made in Luxembourg, which is a little country in Western Europe. A cool little anecdote.
It's a lovely light blue/green cream polish that is similar to Orly's Gumdrop.
I had to use three coats to get it opaque even though it goes on kind of thick. Go figure.
 
 
So I came across this polish at a party...a nail polish exchange party! I have a friend who is also crazy about nail polish, even more than me, and she had this brilliant idea to have this exchange party and this is how it works. Everyone is to bring any and all nail polishes they own that they no longer want, old or new, any colors. Once at the party you dump them in a big basket with everyone else's. If you brought eight polishes, you would then be allowed to pick any eight out of the basket that you liked to take home. So this polish is one I picked from the basket, along with many others that I must blog about soon. But, I warn you, they may be old like this one! Ha ha! Thanks for stopping by and I hope that maybe this nail polish party will be right up your alley and you, too will have a super fun time having one because I sure had a blast being the guest of one! Oh yes, everyone also painted their nails at this party. The icing on the cake you might say! Have an awesome day! Taniya

Island Girl Polish in Royal Hawaiian

Here's the other Island Girl polish I promised! Didn't I tell you it was super duper summery?
 
Royal Hawaiian is a bright, neon pink that took just two coats for opacity.
How great would this be for your toes this summer? Oh my goodness, it's so pretty!
My daughter used it on her nails too but also added some sparkle.
She used this L.A. Colors polish in Sparkling Diamonds.
And this one from the Wet N Wild Fergie Collection in New Years Kiss. So either way you do it, you'll have some bright, colorful nails that are bound to get noticed! Thanks for stopping by! Taniya

Island Girl Hawaii

Big Island Volcano is a bit of a green turquoise that covers nicely in two coats.
Of course I LOVE it! I haven't seen these anywhere in So. Cal. but my wonderful pal-sey picked a couple up for me in Vegas. What a sweetie!
So be on the lookout for my next blog posting of the other color she got. Hint: It's SUPER summery. Hurray!
 
 
Have a colorful day, friends! Taniya
