Beauty, Fashion, Fitness & Nails



Hey there nail enthusiasts!
Spring is here.. but on the northeast you’d never know… i mean, it actually snowed in April… WHAT?!!!!
Anyways.. hopefully the temps will begin to warm up, so we can actually enjoy the Spring Season!!
Here’s a closer look at some of the new shades from Essie’s Spring 2016 collection and some added bonus nail stamping art.

The entire Essie collection is available now online at,, Ulta beauty stores, CVS, & if you’re shopping for home goods you can also grab a bottle of your favorite essie shade at Bed Bath & Beyond too!

Each bottle retails for $8.50

A new take on Spring by Essie … My favorite two shades are Lounge Lover & High Class Affair.  I love the combo of these two!  Take a look below at my nail stamping pattern below.  A perfect combo for spring!   I also created a half moon nail look with this combo… click here for dets..

I’d have to say my least favorite would be Off Tropic and Sunshine State Of Mind.  I could do without a deep forest green and orange for spring.  But that’s just my preference.  I’m more of a shades of Reds, Nudes/Pinks & Purples kinda gal! 🙂
