Mary Kay Carefree Coral

Good evening!  Today I have a new color from Mary Kay's Spring 2014 line: Carefree Coral.  This is the first Mary Kay polish I've tried and I was pleasantly surprised.

Carefree Coral is an orange pink with decent coverage.  It's more of a jelly than a cream but the formula is nice with limited streaking, although I did have some problem with pooling around my cuticles as the polish is on the thin side.  I thought the brush was on the thin side and it was difficult for me to adjust to at first.

Pictured here is three coats of Mary Kay Carefree Coral.

Overall I was pleased with the color and I would certainly recommend this color to anyone!  I'm pleased with this color and am looking forward to seeing what else Mary Kay comes out with.

Essie Shake Your $$ Maker

Is it summer yet?  I'll even settle for it being spring, I'm ready for this winter to be over.  Today I broke out a neon from Essie's 2013 DJ Play that Song collection: Shake Your $$ Maker.  This bright, bright green is terrible to photograph, so I apologize in advance for this color discrepancy.

Shown here is four coats of Essie Shake Your $$ Maker.  This polish is thin and it really needed a white undercoat (oops) to keep the visible nail line from showing.

Pillow Inspiration

While browsing Apartment Therapy this past weekend I found a throw pillow I just needed to have (this house tour if you're curious).  I tracked down the pillow to its source, Designer Fluff, where I was completely dismayed at how much it cost. Needless to say, you will not find one of these pillows on my couch.

You will, however, find a similar design on my nails. For this manicure I used two coats of OPI My Vampire is Buff, stamped Bundle Monster plate BM-422 on top using Konad Special Polish in Purple, then added gold accents with a dotting tool and Orly Luxe.

Zoya Ziv

For New Year's Eve I wore a really cute pink lace dress with gold lining (from ModCloth, Surprise to the Occasion). To coordinate, I used two coats of Zoya Ziv on my nails. It was prefect!

Gelish My Nightly Craving

For Christmas this past year I received a gel kit (Gelish if you couldn't guess from the title) which I want to use during heavy work/stress periods when I don't have time to do regular polish manicure upkeep. After combing through swatch galleries online, I settled on Gelish My Nightly Craving as my first work appropriate color.

I'm heading to Orlando for a conference in a few weeks and will be able to test how it wears then.
