Today I’m excited because I have some new, fun, beautiful Essie shades to share with you that were gifted to me from their Summer 2020 collection! I’m always excited for new nail polish collections, & I haven’t been buying a lot of polish in stores, so I was very excited to receive these shades.
According to my Google research, the whole Essie Summer 2020 Bustling Bazaar collection is inspired “by wandering through the bustling bazaars of Morocco”. I can definitely say just by looking at the shades that fill this collection, I can feel that inspiration with these shades! & if I can’t travel for real, I’m here to wear the inspiration on my nails.
Happy Canadian Thanksgiving everyone! 🍁🍂 I hope all who celebrate are enjoying whatever goodies they had on the menu, and if you’re not celebrating I’m sending pumpkin pie vibes your way! (We’re enjoying our gluten-free pumpkin pie as we speak!) I’m a little late getting up my Q&A but better late than ever! I was excited that quite a few people asked questions so I hope you’ll enjoy reading them as much as I enjoyed answering!
@vasso.nails—Where are you from? Halifax Nova Scotia Canada.
@jazzynailedit—What do you like more, coffee or nail polish? This is actually such a tough question but I think I’ll have to go with nail polish! If I had to, I think I could definitely stop drinking coffee. But I don’t think I could go without painting my nails!
@magickismight—Do you do your nails every night? you just post so many and I’m so curious! I don’t think I’d have the patience. Yep! Working in retail usually means I end up with chips in my polish by the end of the day, and I can’t stand chipped polish! So unless I’m really exhausted or not feeling well, I almost always do them before bed.
@polished_yogi—When did you get started with doing your nails? And what’s your favorite/least favorite designs? I’ve always loved polish. My first “nail art” was probably attempting mimicking french manicures because I loved the look of arcylic french manicures that Kaley Cuoco wore on 8 Simple Rules! I would constantly redo them every day because they would chip and it made me so mad! I started playing around with other nail art occasionally in 2010 when I started discovering nail art and other people who loved nail polish (although back then I had a very modest collection of only about 50-60 polishes!) My favourite designs to do are definitely chevron moons or polka dots! And my least…. hmmm… I’m not sure what I like least! Do naked nails count? 😉
@the_virago—Not a question but a comment – I’m glad I’m not the only one who broke a nail and had to file them back. I know the feeling. I always feel like I’m the only person on Instagram who ever has a bad break! I wish I knew the black magic secrets to keep them strong forever!
@liz9245—Do you do your nail art on both your hands? Absolutely! My cinderella hand isn’t always perfect but I always paint her the same!
@heidiholman18—Can you post a picture of the collection of nail polish you have? I don’t have any recent pictures of my whole collection (because it’s split between two rooms in our house)but I do have a couple pictures of the part in our bedroom.
@thekapriegirl—What is your favorite perfume? I wish I had one! I’m pretty allergic to most scents so I don’t wear perfume ever! I did used to love Clinique Happy when I was a teenager though–I had a little bottle of it when I was 12-13 and I used to wear it on occasion.
Thank you everyone who asked me questions, it was really fun to be able to do this short little Q&A! And if anyone else has any questions for me you can always ask me in the comments!
I’ve seen a few other ladies do this on Instagram so I thought it would be a fun idea to do a little Q&A!
Feel free to ask me anything about nail art, nail polish or even life in general! You can pose your questions here, on Instagram, through my Facebook, or even via my email coffeeandnailpolish (@) gmail.com!
I plan on posting my questions and answers come Monday (Canadian Thanksgiving)! So if there was ever anything you wanted to ask me, this is your chance!
