Russian Roulette and Pure Pearlfection by Essie

Purchased by me
("Russian Roulette" and "Pure Pearlfection" by Essie)

This is two coats of Russian Roulette topped with one coat of Pure Pearlfection. Both polishes went on smoothly, and together they give a beautiful, rich and shiny holiday red color =) On this picture, II used two coats of the red polish (which you can see a swatch of alone here), and one coat of the pearl polish.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Last Minute Nail Art Idea

I am stopping by quickly here today, to share with you a last minute nail art idea for christmas. On Christmas eve, I will probably use this nail art on one accent nail, along with the rest of the red manicure I'm planning =)

This nail art is not very exciting. I am sure you have seen many santa face, santa hat and santa suit nail art ideas online, as I have too. But I do not think I have ever seen exactly this view of santa. I have seen santa suits, but then only his suit and none of his beard. In my version, I wanted to include both his beard and his suit with his belt =)

Russian Roulette by Essie

Purchased by me
("Russian Roulette" by Essie)


This polish is a fun red jelly-ish color. The formula is a little on the runny side, so I made sure to take off a little bit extra from the brush before applying the polish to the nail. Three coats were used to get the polish to this opacity. No top coat used for this photo.
  I will be back in a few days with an easy nail art tutorial, where I used this polish as my base color. It will be my first video tutorial, and I look forward to sharing it with you =)

Cashmere Bathrobe by Essie

Purchased by me
("Cashmere Bathrobe" by Essie)

This polish is a gorgous dark grey, with a subtle shimmer. The formula was great, and it went on smoothly. I used two coats for this swatch, with no top coat for the picture. 

How do you like this dark grey shimmering color? I'd love to hear about it in the comment section. For me, I think it looks really elegant =)
