New Essie Gel Couture Nail Polish

14 days of gel like wear and shine with no UV light? Easy removal? Can do it myself at home? Sign me up! After trying gel nails for the first time this spring, I was feeling conflicted. I loved the shine and wear, but the removal and aftermath was the worst. I’d do a gel manicure again for a special occasion, but it wasn’t going to work for everyday. I love Essie colors, so when I heard they had a new 14 day gel manicure collection, I figured I’d try it out and see if it really worked!

I’ve got three items to share with you today…!

Last month I was a busy little bee, lots of stuff going on. So I’ve combined by July and August Favorites! Since I was busy, I wasn’t trying a lot of new things, and ended up just using a lot of the same stuff day to day since it was easier. It was light make up and messy buns most of the summer because there were like 1 million heat waves in Philadelphia. But today it is finally September and it’s a beautiful day out.

August Empties 2016

Slowly, slowly catching up on blog posts. Here’s to hoping I get my Favorites up tomorrow, and then I should be feeling much more caught up! I thought my August Empties would be bigger, but I still had a use or two left in a few products when I picked them up this morning. Good sign I’ll have something to post about for September Empties then! I’ve gotten to a point where it seems I actually really like 90% of the products I use, which means I’m sad to see all these products go when I finish them! I have some shopping I need to do.
