Hello lovelies & happy Thursday! It’s almost the weekend! I hope everyone is having a lovely week so far.
Today I’m excited to show off the manicure I was wearing for National Nail Polish Day — & yes, that more red nail polish haha. I figured I wanted to wear nails that were all encompassing of my personality, & red nails with daisies just did that!
First off, check out how long my nails currently are! I know I’m enviably due for a break, just because I work a job that is not the kindest of hands/nails, but for right now I’m just going to bask in how long & beautiful they are right now.
Second, I’m so excited for beautiful sunny outdoor shots. I’m living for the sunshine. Not only does it make my nail pictures look lovely, but it just makes my mood so happy.
Third, I adore this Essie-centric manicure for National Nail Polish Day yesterday. I think this is the first time I’ve done a manicure with Essie Too Too Hot & obviously I had to top it with Shine Of The Times. Then, I added some daisies because if I’m celebrating a day dedicated to nail polish, I need some floral (my favourite).

You know what it’s been a while since? The last time I wore my my nails! So naturally I needed to pick some of my newer shades I’ve received lately (& a few oldies from my collection) & incorporated them into a beautiful floral look.
I love love love this bright blue base of Sally Hansen Good Kind Pure in Blue Moonstone. Like I mentioned in the swatch post, it’s definitely my favourite of theshades I received. The colour is so perfect for Spring… Summer… everything! & it really makes the flowers pop.

Hello lovelies & happy Sunday! & happy Mother’s Day to all those Mums, step-Mums, GrandMums, & Dad’s doing double duty out there… & anyone else celebrating today.
Today I’m digging deep deep deep into my stash for a polish I’ve had quite a long time: LA Girl Color Addict in Extreme. This brand used to be sold at my local Lawton’s, & I added quite a few shades to my collection over the years — especially when they were on clearance!
Today’s pick is one I don’t think I’ve ever worn! But I thought the pretty colour would be perfect for this Spring-y weather, & I really wanted to see what it looked like on the nail.
2 coats, no Top Coat
The shade itself is really interesting. It’s a periwinkle blue, that has a beautiful golden shimmer. The formula was really easy to work with — it was two easy swipes for full opacity, & this was pre-top coat, but still had a beautiful shine on its own.
The colour is very beautiful. The gold shimmer gives me icy vibes, which gives me Frozen vibes. But the periwinkle colour feels very Spring-y to me. & we all know how much I love blues on my nails, especially frosty blues like this.
Sadly I haven’t seen LA Girl nail polish in my area for a long time, & could only find listings for this shade on eBay, but LA Girl cosmetics do still exist & you can find other shades by them on their website.
