essie gel couture enchanted collection

essie recently released six new gel couture polishes that will leave you feeling like you’re in a fairy tale. The Enchanted Collection consists of three pastel polishes, two shimmer formulas, and a deep mahogany red. To say there is a bit of something for everyone to have a magical time when wearing one of these six polishes is an understatement. I was very happy to see essie continuing to add to the Gel Couture line as recently I have been grabbing for my GC polishes more often than my classic essie’s. The shine, formula, and wear of this line is always exceptional and thats why I was so excited when these six polishes lived up to these standards. Take a peek below to become spellbound by essie’s newest collection.

essie TLC Favorites

This post is a follow up to my last entry about the 18 new TLC shades that essie added to the Treat Love and Color Line. If you are unfamiliar with these polishes and want to read my previous post to see all of the new TLC releases click here. Last time I asked all of you to send me messages letting me know what polishes from this collection you most wanted to see swatched and because of the large response that I got I decided to swatch eight polishes instead of six. The polishes that you most wanted to see were ‘Mint Condition’, ‘Daytime Dreamer’, ‘Indi-go for it!’, ‘In The Balance’, ‘Time To Unwind’, ‘Mauve-tivation’, ‘Tone It Up’, and ‘A-Game’. Thank you all for your recommendations and I hope that you like the review below!

essie TLC 2018 Release

The essie polish team recently added 18 knockout shades to their already amazing Treat Love & Color line. If you have been following my page for awhile you know that I am a huge fan of this line and will recommend it to anyone who asks me for a nail strengthener. For those of you who aren’t familiar with this line the TLC polishes are a nail strengthener that also has color! Most strengtheners for your nails are clear and look just like a regular base coat when applied but the TLC shades range from light pink all the way to a deep rose and that is what makes this line so unique. Not only are your nails getting stronger but you can wear color at the same time instead of a colorless clear coat! To see the newest additions to this line check out the rest of my post below!

It’s been very difficult for me not to post especially when essie sent me this collection in the mail and I saw how gorgeous it was up close! I finally got some time to sit down and enjoy the beauty that is these six polishes and I’m glad that I did because I have a few new favorites in this collection! Scroll down to see the magic that the essie team created this time!

#essiebuffDIY – Gift Tag Edition

I’ve been racking my brains trying to come up with an #essiebuffDIY for the holidays but I finally found an idea that I think you will love! The other day I was scrolling through Instagram and saw a new post from Pink Fox Paper Crafts of the cutest gift tags for nail polish bottles. She had cute sayings on them that were perfect for the holidays and I immediately knew that I had to try to create some gift tags of my own! I just think they are the perfect way to make the gift of nail polish even better than it was before and adds a personal touch to the gift! I decided to give it a whirl and try to DIY my own gift tags that are nail polish inspired so keep reading below to see how I made them!


Polishes shown in photo: ‘Congrats’ and ‘Birthday Girl!’ (both EU releases only).
