Essie Pop Art Pink Swatches and Review

In today’s post I have for you guys Essie’s Pop Art Pink from Essie’s Spring Collection in 2010. My mom chose this color for me, so this polish is quite special. The first time I used it, I really hated this color.  But I’m going to be gone from February 4 to 8th to Khao Lak for a school residential trip (that means no changing polish for 4 days!) and wanted a natural looking shade to wear, so I decided to give this polish another try. I rarely wear pink except for natural looking jelly/sheer ones, but this is one of my favorites. IMG_2506 With one coat the color comes off as a natural looking jelly polish. With two or three coats, it turns to a milky-pink jelly color. The formula for this is okay. To apply it well with thin coats, you have to be quick because the polish drys very fast. With thick coats it works well just like regular polish. There are also some bubbling that occurred during dry time. The polish dries glossy, so I decided not to apply any topcoat. Here I have on two coats. After taking photos of these swatches I decided to add topcoat to the nails that had bubbles, and the bubbles disappeared. Weird, huh? Also, my pointy finger nail broke again, sorry. Please ignore it! IMG_2505



IMG_2511 IMG_2509 IMG_2510 Overall, I really like this color! It’s pretty versatile too. You can wear it with one coat for a natural look, or two or three coats for it to be opaque. I think this polish is super girly and fun. What do you think?

Essie Lapiz of Luxury Swatches and Review

I’ve been wanting to try Essie polishes since forever, and when I had a chance to pre-order polishes I decided to give it a try. I searched online for the best Essie polish color out there, and many websites recommended  Lapis of Luxury.

ส่วนตัวอยากลองยาทาเล็บ Essie มานานนนนมาแล้ว พอจะพรีออเดอร์ยาทาเล็บก็เลยกะว่าจะลองสักหน่อย ลองเสิร์ชดูในเว็บไซต์ว่ามีสีไหนแนะนำมั้ย ปรากฏว่าสี Lapiz of Luxury มีคนแนะนำเยอะอยู่ค่ะ เลยลองสั่งมาดู ^ ^

(Lapis of Luxury – 2-3 coats/ทา 2-3 รอบ)

Lapiz of Luxury is a creme ocean blue color. I took these photos nearly 2 months ago, so I’m not exactly sure how many coats I did or whether I added topcoat. I remember very well though that this polish was super easy to remove. It dries glossy, no topcoat needed. The brush isn’t hard to work with at all despite its small size. Overall, I really like this polish and will definitely check out more Essie colors. I am quite interested in Mojito Madness right now.

Lapiz of Luxury เป็นครีมสีทะเลฟ้าๆค่ะ ถ่ายภาพนี้ประมาณสองเดือนที่แล้วเลยไม่แน่ใจว่าทาไปกี่รอบ + ทาท็อปโค้ทรึเปล่า แต่จำได้แม่นมากว่าล้างง่ายสุดๆ แห้งไวและแห้งใสๆ ไม่ต้องทาท็อปโค้ทก็ได้ค่ะ แปรงทาง่ายถึงจะเล็กกว่าที่เคยทามา โดยรวมแล้วชอบสีนี้ค่ะ และคงจะลองสีอื่นของ Essie อีกแน่ๆ ปัจจุบันก็กำลังสนใจ Mojito Madness อยู่ 

You can find more about this polish on their website here.

My First Entry – Plaid & Ants Nails

Yesterday my mom decided to go to the nail salon so I decided to tag along. Before that I had quiet a few nail designs saved on my phone. At the salon I decided to go with a design of red plaid prints as the background with black ants. I thought it was a unique design and I haven’t seen one like that before. However I decided to change the red plaid to blue plaid nails instead because red never looks good with my skin color. Here is a photo:

(If you are the owner of this design, please let me know, so I can properly credit you. I can’t remember where I got my original photo from.)

Sorry about the photo quality. I will get a new camera very soon, that photo was taken with my iPhone. Other than that, I also recently ordered a bunch of O.P.I., China Glaze and Essie nail polishes that should be arriving at my house by next week. Hopefully by then I could make a few swatch reviews. I am also planning to order L.A. Color polish stripers and I am also trying to find a place where I can get some glitter polishes from Essence. But that would take some time because they are so hard to find here! 😦
