Essence The Nudes Nail Polish Swatches

Essence Nail Polish The Nudes

Essence recently added to their I <3 Trends collection with The Nudes.  There are four to five polishes in the US/Canada release of The Nudes collection but sadly, my local Shoppers Drug Mart only had three left by the time I found them.

Unlike the regular Essence polishes, these are in plain round bottles with chunky caps, similar to the base/top coat from The Gel collection.  While they look bigger than a regular Essence polish, The Nudes contain the same 0.27 fl oz/8ml as their regular polishes. [Read more…]

ipsy august 2015 unboxing

I know, I know, I already have my September ipsy bag photographed for an unboxing (unbagging – whatever) so it is about time I got my August subscriptions up.  This ipsy bag was probably the worst of the ones I have received.  The preview for ipsy’s August Prep School bag showed Trust Fund nail polish, Batiste dry shampoo, Tarte lip gloss and more great things and ipsy seemed to choose the five I need/dislike the most.
