Formula X for Sephora Photoelectric #ManiMonday

I Bought This|Press Sample

Remember when I raved, sorry RAVED, about the new Formula X for Sephora Liquid Crystals polishes? Well, I recently found myself in front of the gorgeous glass-fleck meets foil gems at my local Sephora and brought another beauty home with me. You might think Photoelectric looks like any other turquoise sparkler but you’d be wrong!

Essie Resort Fling DIY Subtle Sparkle #ManiMonday

It’s no secret that Essie Resort Fling is one of my fave shades for spring. The peachy, coral creme jelly (sorry the word “crelly” makes my skin crawl), is near perfect. The only thing that could make it better is that subdued crystal sparkle in shades like Sunday Funday and Naughty Nautical.

So, for this #ManiMonday, I used Essie Pure Pearlfection to create that signature look and now Resort Fling looks even more amazing!!

#ManiMonday – Sally Hansen Pique Side Swatch & Review

Sally Hansen Piqué Side for Spring 2014 #ManiMonday

While I’m lucky to have an EXTREMELY patient and laid-back boyfriend, I’m sure he secretly hates that I can’t enter a drugstore without stalking the seasonal beauty section. And that I compulsively reorganize the area if colors are in the wrong spot. You’re welcome, Walgreens employees!

Over the years, I’ve narrowed down my fave locations of each drugstore chain based on which ones get the most seasonal nail polish displays. I’m not alone in this right? RIGHT?

For instance, I have a favorite Rite-Aid, which is where I picked up today’s Mani Monday shade, Sally Hansen Piqué Side. The new Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Color Vibrations “Pastels on Point” collection includes some fun, shimmery pastels and this minty green is a standout.

Happy Mani Monday/St. Patrick’s Day! I don’t know about you guys but my weekend was made a whole lot better by the release of the Veronica Mars movie.

As a Kickstarter backer of the film, I’ve been not-so-patiently waiting for the return of this modern day Nancy Drew since last March. Though really, since it went off the air in 2007.

On Friday, I received my digital download of the movie and hosted a watch party with my fellow Marshmallows. I may or may not have watched it four times since then.

To celebrate the release of the film and in hopes that it does well enough to spawn sequels, I have a VMars-inspired manicure that, naturally, incorporates Essie Marshmallow. I mean, how could it not??

#ManiMonday – Muted Marble Nail Art with L’Oreal Paris Collection Privée

#ManiMonday - Muted Marble Nail Art with L'Oreal Collection Privee

Regardless of what that silly rodent said yesterday, I’m refusing to give in to six more weeks of winter. Instead, after my vacation, I’m feeling refreshed and recharged and ready to dive into new spring colors.

After months of wearing dramatic darks and sparkly metallics, I’m yearning for something clean. But, you know I can’t just wear a nude on its own, I need to jazz it up. I took the new L’Oreal Paris Collection Privée nudes for a spin to create a muted, metallic marble effect. How’s that for alliteration?
