    The New Desert Mirage Collection From essie is Absolutely Gorgeous!

    I almost always have my nails painted. I love trying new shades/formulas out and the new Desert Mirage Collection from essie is absolutely gorgeous! It features 6 beautiful shades to give your nails a hypnotic effect in just two coats. The colour palette is unlike any others in my collection and I’m hooked! The shades include: “Lighten the Mood” (an ivory dusted with sienna undertones), “Less is Aura” (a warm terracotta beige), “Let It Go” (a fiery coral glistening with a copper shimmer, and my personal favourite!), “Blue-tiful Horizon” (a cerulean blue with a glowing amber shimmer), “Hazy Days” (a rich purple glazed with warm clay tones), and “Seeing Stars”…

    Beauty Finds of the Week

    This week I’ve settled into my new routine a bit more and have had a little extra time to pamper myself. It’s still been a busy week, but I’ve been trying to make the effort to take some time out for myself too. Here are my beauty finds of the week: Stila Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow in “Kitten Karma”* I seriously love these shadows! They’re so fun and aside from waiting for them to dry, they’re super easy to use! I love that this shadow instantly makes it look like I spent way longer on my eye shadow than I actually did. This shade has champagne, silver, and…

    Beauty Finds of The Week

    It’s time for another weekly installment of Beauty Finds of The Week. This week’s picks are a little more autumn oriented.

It’s also very hydrating without being too rich or heavy on the skin. You can also store this one in the refrigerator for an added cooling sensation! eos Crystal Lip Balm in ‘Vanilla…

    Essie 90s Collection

The collection consists of: ‘As If’ which is a powdery periwinkle blue with a hint of red, ‘Mixtaupe’ which is a warm ivory with a dash of pink, ‘Girly Grunge’ which is a soft silver metallic with light purple shine, ‘Saved by The Belle’ which is a light baby pink with subtle blue undertone, and ‘Dressed to the Nineties’ which is a dark purple…
