Esmaltes da Kelly Sesame Street Collection

Press  Sample

Hey there!  2 full weeks and no blogging.  I was at a conference last week that pretty much turned my brain inside out and, since I was away from the lab for a week, this week has been stupidly busy.  But I'm finally back today with swatches of the Sesame Street collection of polishes from Esmaltes da Kelly that are available for all us international folks from Beautometry.  Esmaltes da Kelly always comes up with fun, interesting collections and the most adorable labels in the business.  This collection has a mix of holographic polishes (that are also great for stamping) and glitter polishes.  Let's have a look!

The Digit-al Dozen does Colors - Orange Dotticure

Hey there!  I hope all my Canadian friends are excited for the long weekend. I know I am because that means I can finally go back to my happy place, the lake.  But first, my final Digit-al Dozen Colors/Colorful mani.  I went with a color I don't wear all the often - orange.  I think the only color I wear less than orange is yellow which is why I fully eliminated yellow from my rainbow this week.  I actually copycat-ed myself today with this mani I did over 4 years ago with a concentric dotticure.  I just changed up the color.

The Digit-al Dozen does Colors - Red Brushstroke Nails

Hey there!  For Day 4 of the Digit-al Dozen's Color/Colorful week, I wanted to focus on red today.  I was trying to use different techniques as well as different colors for my manis this week For today I did a really quick brushstroke mani focusing on red.  When I did these this weekend I believe I described them as "the stuff of nightmares" but, looking at them again, I kinda like them.  They're more abstract than my typical nail art but abstract is good!

The Digit-al Dozen does Colors - Purple (invisible) Gradient and Stamping

Affiliate Code

Hey there!  This is what we call bedtime blogging...or at least I do.  It's 11:54 pm and I should be getting ready for bed but I haven't gotten today's Digit-al Dozen post done yet so today is gonna be a quickie.  My color of choice today is purple.  I wanted to do something inspired by this awesome mani from @teenynails but where I went strayed from the original idea.  But since I never get tired of nighttime silhouette looks, I loved it.  Most of the products I used can still be found on Maniology's website (even though I purchased these plates ages ago).  If you want to do something similar with them you can use the code COPY10 to save yourself 10% on them.

The Digit-al Dozen does Colors - Blue Stripes

Hey there!  For my second Digit-al Dozen Colors mani, I'm going with blue.  And to pair with my favourite color, I did my favourite nail look - stripes!  I don't know why but stripes are definitely my favourite pattern.  Unfortunately stripes are near impossible for me to stamp so I don't wear them all that often.  But a Digit-al Dozen week is worth the time it takes to use stencils so that's what I did for today.

The Digit-al Dozen does Colors - Green Drip Marble

Hey there!  Today is the start of a new Digit-al Dozen's week.  This week we doing Colors/Colorful.  I decided to take this prompt as an opportunity to really focus on a single color for each mani.  So each day I'll have a different color focus, sort of like the start of the 31 Day Challenge (which I haven't participated in for years).  I'm starting with my favourite mani that I did for these theme - a green drip marble.  Actually it's a multichrome green drip marble and I absolutely loved wearing it.  It hurt a little to use that much of some of my favourite polishes but in the end I thought it was worth it.

Maniology Mani X Me Box - May 2019

Affiliate Code

Hey there!  Today I'm sharing my look at the May 2019 Mani X Me box from Maniology.  I have to say that getting the Mani X Me box is a highlight for me every month.  Every month there are 2 plates and 2 polishes and something extra.  I obviously LOVE Maniology's plates and polishes but that something extra is always so much fun.  Maybe it's because it's a surprise (I don't believe they include it in their preview emails) and who doesn't love a fun surprise?  This month's theme is Life's A Beach so the plates are filled with mermaid and beachy images and the polishes match up perfectly.  I did four manis with them to test them out and had no issues at all so my Mani X Me obsession continues.  If you're interested in signing up (you can also buy month by month), use the coupon code COPY10 to save $5 off your first box (which also comes with an Ice Cube Stamper).  The code can also be used on any other Maniology order to save yourself 10%.
