Essie's Too Taboo + Fashion Playground.



I've been disappointed with Essie nail polish formulas as of late. They have been incredibly streaky, requiring more than usual coats to reach opacity. They are chipping within hours of wear, which might or might not be attributed to the 4-coat thickness on my nail and they have the dullness of 3-day old lacquer.

You are my Sunshine.. Zoya PixieDust Nail Polish.



Described as a "Van Gogh" navy blue with a matte, textured, sparkling finish.

I treated myself to this gorgeous shade of +Zoya Nail Polish  PixieDust, Sunshine, after my +Whole Foods Market pedi appointment. Not a name that would typically associate with 'sunshine', this cobalt blue nail polish provided 2 different looks: one coat exposed the glitter, giving a very silver, very beautiful finish. Two coats enriched the presence of the base hue rather than the glitter. Next time I apply this 5-free, textured matte nail polish, it will be a one-coater for sure. xoxo •Nancy-Lee

SquareHue July 2014 Passport Collection

I am posting the July 2014 collection so you can see what you are missing out on: A fabulous trio of nail lacquers every month, delivered to your door for $19.99, including shipping.



Passeig de GrĂ cia : A plummy nail polish with golden shimmer, it requires three codes for full opacity. Like all SquareHue lacquers it levels quickly and dries to a high shine. I adore this plum. It is going to be a Fall favourite, for sure. I love the colour purple, but I have the hardest time connecting with purple lacquer. This month, I fell in love with 2!
