Da Bush or Mine

Hello everyone! Today's post features 2 Essie polishes, like the previous SaQu post, I got these also at the fair - 3 for $10! Sweet deal haha♥ But the bad thing was that there was a little selection and most of the colors didn't have stickers and were neutral and pale pinks. 

This is Essie Da Bush which is a light pale green creme and it's shown in 2 coats. =) I looove the color and it looks better IRL, its just that my camera sucks lol. 

Essie Your Hut or Mine is a strawberry pink with silver shimmer and it's shown in 2 coats as well. :)

Thanks for stopping by and happy polishing! :)

Sin-cerely Violet

Hello there! Today's post is a swatch of Sephora by OPI Sin-cerely Violet, which is a light violet purple frost and it's shown in 3 coats. It's an adorable and sweet color that applies beautifully. I love that it's not too flashy and simple. :)

Thanks for stopping by, and happy polishing! :)

Two-fer! #635 & #797

Hello everyone! Today's post is a two-fer! I got these two polishes at an Italian fair in Manhattan, which occurs every year in September and there's one in Brooklyn as well but they don't have a cosmetics tent :P So I got these two SaQu polishes to show you. 

SaQu #635 is a sheer light cornflower blue with orange-red-pink shimmer, which is shown in 3 coats. I love the color in the bottle but it came out so sheer :( 

Here is #635 layered over China Glaze Shower Together and China Glaze First Mate. It does look WAY better layered and it's definitely meant for that haha!

SaQu #797 is a light coffee brown frost with rose pink shimmer and this is shown in 4 coats O__O. It's a cute color and it reminds me of Misa Teddy Bear that I had a LOONG time ago. :P If I still had Teddy Bear, I'd probably do a comparison.

Thanks for stopping by and happy polishing! :)

Suzi Loves Cowboys!

Hello everyone, I hope you are all doing swell! :) Today's post will display a swatch of OPI Suzi Loves Cowboys, which is a brown creme. I've been looking for a good brown that I would be able to use for my cherry blossom nails, which I attempted a while back. I kept this in case I ever want to re-create or work on my nail art technique in cherry blossoms in the future. It's a nice full brown color too. This is shown in two easy coats. :P

Thanks for stopping by and happy polishing! :)

Memories of You.....

Hi everyone, sorry for the late post! >__< I hope you all are doing swell, I know it's been a while since I've last posted. I have done a few swatches for you guys, hopefully I'll be able to resize them sometime when I'm available. And I haven't felt like doing my nails since my nails were breaking and they're on the short side. I'm hoping it'll grow out soon.

Today's post is something I created because this day is a day to remember for me since today was the passing of my aunt. I've cried and cried but I wanted something that would allow me to remember her while still doing something I love, nail polish. My aunt was like my second mother and she treated me like her own daughter. Her daughter, my cousin, is a few months older than me but I feel like we're sisters and we're the closest family member in our entire family. I will always remember the late nights/early mornings that she would wake up and tuck my cousin and I in whenever I slept over at my grandma's house whenever they visited. I will remember the times in Atlanta when she would give me more medicine to take because of my coughing. My aunt and my two cousins were the only family members living in Atlanta while the rest of my family is in the Northeast. So whenever she came, our entire family would come together and she was the piece that connected my entire family together. Without her, our families lived their own lives in different homes. What hurts is that I can't be by my cousin's side, since she's in Atlanta and I'm here in New York. However, my parents are there so I hope she feels a part of me being with her in them. It hurts to see my aunt go, but I know that she isn't suffering as she was during her time here, since she had to battle throat cancer twice. I'm sad that she is no longer with us but I know she's in a better place watching down on my cousin, her brother and the rest of my family, smiling down and taking care of us.

With this, I decided that I wanted to create a nail polish of some that are precious to me, to remind me of her. And I named it Memories of You. Gu Gu, (this is what I call her in Chinese), this is for you and I hope you like it. I love and miss you♥ You'll always be in my heart.

My cousin Sean, my aunt, my grandma and my cousin Pauline

I've layered 2 coats of Memories of You on top of 2 coats of Essie Licorice for this manicure.

Memories of You is a franken which consists of:

• Wet N Wild Clear
• Essie Licorice
• Clarins 230 (a little bit)
• China Glaze Bermuda Breakaway
• OPI Movin' Out
• Star Gazer 308
• Cult Nails Unicorn Puke
Unicorn Puke, Movin' Out, Bermuda Breakaway and Essie Licorice were the main components of this franken.

I love the results of this franken and this is definitely a great reminder of my aunt. The multicolored flakies represents the memories and happiness of my aunt and the dark base represents the sadness of losing my aunt.

I hope you love this polish as much as I do.

Thanks for stopping by,
