Essie “Truth or Flare” Polish

Essie Truth or Flare

I love Essie polishes – they dominate my collection. I think that for formula and shade selection, there’s no beating them. When it comes to shades, Essie do pinks and nudes remarkably well and until recently, were missing out on colour.

Not so now, especially with seasonal collections. Read more!

Essie Bahama Mama

Essie Bahama Mama

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but sometimes, a product is so horrendously bad that I feel like it is my duty as a blogger to let my readers know about it. I’ve felt this way about a few products in the past. This goes beyond disappointment – I thought this was just plain bad. Read more…

DIY Nail Polish Catalogue

DIY Nail Catalogue for FB Insta

I moved recently, and the most jarring part of it was the amount of beauty products I own and the lack of organization among them. So I picked up a new organizational item from Ikea that, once I get the inside drawers how I want them, I will be sharing here.

The one drawer that is how I want it is my nail polish drawer at the bottom. I used to keep my nail polish in a train case, but that was dark (and my collection had outgrown it), which meant that I inevitably forgot about some colours and didn’t use them. Out of sight, out of mind, I guess.

I had some free time and a cute notebook I wasn’t doing anything else with, so I decided to create an organized flipbook of all my nail polish colours. Read more!

The Sunday Night Edit

Sunday Night Edit

This is the first week back at school after Reading Week, and it has been a whirlwind…but that was to be expected. That’s why, on Sunday night, I treated myself to as many beauty treatments as I could think of.

This special Sunday night ritual has been part of my routine for years. I remember being in high school and painting my nails at 9 o’clock on a Sunday night. It’s a way for me to take care of myself, relax, and ease myself into the coming week.

Here’s a peek at the products I used! Read more!

The Nude Nail Edit

Nude Nail Polish Bottles

I love nude nails no matter what the season, but they’re especially great for spring. There’s just something so sleek and clean about them. They’re great for work, job interviews, weddings and proms (as a welcome alternative to the French mani, which gets tired around prom time).

These are a few of my favourite nudes. Read more!

The Nail Care Edit

Nail Care Edit

Nail care is a necessity no matter what your age, sex, gender, or stage of life. However, it can be easier or more difficult depending on what you use to tackle the task. Today I’m sharing my essential tools and products for caring for my nails. Read more!

The Bright Nail Edit

Bright Nails

I love bright colours on my toes. I rarely wear them on my fingers, but I’m all about the bright toenails. It’s probably because I think feet are gross and I feel the need to disguise that grossness by any means possible.

Whether you’re into brights on your tips or toes, with spring coming (taking her sweet time, but coming nonetheless…) it’ll soon be time to start hauling out the brights. If you’re like me, though, then the brights never really left, and you’ve been wearing them all throughout the cold months anyhow. Read more!

10 Products I Would Repurchase

10 Products I Would Repurchase
The concept is simple, ubiquitous, and mildly terrifying to product junkies everywhere: if all your makeup disappeared, which ten products would you repurchase (first)?

I’m going to keep mine simple and narrowed down to only makeup (simply because there are probably 10 hair products alone that I regularly use and love…*cough*).

The At-Home French Mani (+ Community’s baaack!)

End Result

I’m not sure French manicures are even still “in”, but I like them so who cares. I remember the first time I went to the salon in elementary school and got my nails done. I also remember that it was expensive – most salons charge $5-10 extra because this technique requires extra time and patience. Today, I’m going to show you how to skip the salon and still get gorgeous results.
