Essie Da Bush & Shine of the Times

This is a beautiful, subtle manicure that is perfect for spring. This is two coats of Essie Da Bush from the Resort 2011 Collection with one thin coat of Essie Shine of the Times. I have read that OPI Stranger Tides from the Pirates of the Caribbean collection is an exact dupe for Da Bush. Dull green is not normally something i am drawn to but I love this combination.

China Glaze Sweet Hook & Latticed Lilac

I passed on the China Glaze Crackle Metals Collection when they first came out last summer but when i saw them on clearance at Sally Beauty Supply this weekend for $2.99 I did not want to pass them up. I picked up Latticed Lilac and Oxidized Aqua. For this manicure I used Latticed Lilac over China Glaze Sweet Hook from the new Electropop collection. I purchased Sweet Hook from Amazon with a free gift card from I am planning on purchasing several of the Electropop polishes with upcoming swagbucks giftcards :-) You can read more about swagbucks and things I have earned here.

Peachy Keen & Lighthouse

China Glaze Peachy Keen and China Glaze Lighthouse and both beautiful polishes alone but together they are extra special. I love this combination. This manicure is simple and is especially pretty in the sunlight. I am looking forward to wearing these polishes together for pedicures this summer :-)
