A Dream of Warmer Weather

I am ready for spring. I'm ready for sundresses, bare legs, and pastels! Unfortunately the weather here in NYC is the most bipolar I've ever seen it--a nice, balmy 57F one minute, and then dropping down to a chilly, windy 42 within a matter of a couple hours, leaving me with nothing but gooseprickles and the wish that I'd worn a sweater. I guess it's best to keep it springy on my fingertips and bundle up everywhere else, for now...

Revlon Heavenly atop Sinful Colors Cinderella is the perfect wishful-spring mani! Cinderella is definitely my favorite pale blue base--the slightly translucent quality of its formula plus the pink/gold shimmer keeps it from getting too chalky, and it's an easy three coats to opacity. Heavenly is a ethereal, dreamy sheer polish packed with hex and square iridescent glitter (it also happens to be a dupe of Deborah Lippmann Stairway to Heaven), and since it's so glitter-dense it only took one coat to achieve the look here!

Leprechaun Day

For St. Patrick's Day I have an old mani (actually from *last* year's St. Patrick's Day) to show you; I was busy with school and work and actually didn't have the chance to don this polish this year...nevertheless I hope you enjoy the gorgeous Zoya Ivanka!

Ivanka is a stunning emerald green glassfleck with hints of gold at certain angles. I'm wearing 3 coats here. The formula was thin and flowed easily, so I had no problems with application.
