Essie Borrowed & Blue

Hey guys!

Today I have some very simple negative space nail art to share with you featuring the beautiful and delicate Essie Borrowed & Blue.

For the manicure I started off with a light blue base of Essie Borrowed & Blue on all my nails. On my accent nail I only applied Essie Borrowed & Blue to the bottom two-thirds of the nail and added a piece of silver striping tape to finish it off.

This accent nail is turning into my signature accent nail!

Black on Black

Hey guys!

Today I received not one, but two nail mails, so I decided to create some mysterious, dark nail art with the things I got!

For the manicure I started off with a black base of Essie Licorice on all my nails, except for my ring finger and pinky, which I painted with the black, holographic glitter F.U.N Lacquer Black Holo Witch. Afterwards I used a square swirl nail vinyl from Snail Vinyls on my ring finger and Essie Licorice to create the accent nail.

I am in love with this beautiful, but dark and mysterious manicure!

Bling

Hey guys!

Today I have some simple nail art with a little bling to share with you!

For the manicure I started off with a red base of the beautiful Essie Happy Wife Happy Life on all my nails. On my ring finger I only painted two thirds of the nail to create a negative space effect toward the cuticle area on my nail. To finish everything off I applied a rectangular rhinestone to my ring finger.

Essie Sleek Stick Nail Stickers

Hey guys!

Today I have a review of the Essie Sleek Stick Nail Stickers in the color 09 Stickers and Stones, which is nail stickers in a taupe color with a vertical silver glitter gradient.


The package contains 18 nail stickers in various sizes, 1 nail file, and 1 instruction sheet.

The nail stickers are really difficult to apply to the nails, because they are so thick. This results in a somewhat wrinkled look on the nails, which is a shame. I really like that color and design of the nail stickers though.


Usually I would use a top coat to smoothen out the small imperfections and wrinkles, but when I attempted that, they wrinkled up even more (as on the picture below)!


I think it is unfortunate that they are not working with top coat, as it means that they won't be longwearing on the nails (as advertised on the packaging).

All in all, I am really disappointed with these nail stickers. They are really pretty in the package, but they do not apply well and they look awful on the nails.
