Spring Argyle

If you haven't noticed the majority of my designs lately have focused on spring colors.  I am so ready for winter to be over and spring to arrive!  So this is reflected in the bright colors I have been using.  Today's mani is no exception!

Essence nail polishes are one of my new loves!  I love the colors, formula and quick dry time.  I really wish that a bigger selection was available here in the US!  I am feeling deprived by only being able to purchase the small bottles from Ulta, and they sell out so fast!

For this mani I started with 2 coats of Essence Mellow Yellow and Lime Up. The creaminess of these two colors is amazing! 



Next, I added the argyle design using m60 and China Glaze White on White.

Then I added a coat of NL.

I was going to leave the mani like this, however after staring at it for awhile I decided to use up the tape strips I cut for my last design.  I went back and added a french tip to each nail using the opposite color.


During a recent trip to Wal-Mart I noticed that the NYC polishes had coupons attached to them,  $.50 off a $1.99 polish!  I have heard a lot of good things about the NYC fast drying top coat, so I decided to try it out, because I would save money!  I am very happy with this top coat! Not only is it cheap but it also dries really fast, has awesome shine and no shrinkage!  Why should I pay $5 more on OTD?!?!  If you haven't tried it I recommend it highly! Great top coat!

  3. It looks great. Like you, I've become very fond of Essence. Unfortunately it's not available here at all, so I can only get my hands on them when I'm on vacation. *pouts*
    Spring colours are great this time of year. I long for spring too. :)

  7. Keeping the house clean does not put us in an embarrassing situation in front of guests, family gatherings and gathering with relatives and friends increase the joy of the house and therefore we must keep our homes clean permanently in order to be ready to receive all guests, friends and family.
