It's been a while since I had my nails done professionally, and it was quite a pleasure to get a manicure at Pro&Vidence last week. I decided to test their new Essie Holiday collection and picked this sparkling golden nail polish applied over a nude base coat. I needed something glamorous, versatile and *importantly* something that would cover my 3mm false nails regrowth lol
3 weeks ago I've applied gel nails to make a smooth transition from short to long natural nails and I don't plan to re-fill the gel. I just want to let my own nails grow under it and I'll file off the gel once my nails are long enough. So nail polishes with a non-uniform texture are a perfect solution for such a transition period since they mask the edge between false nails and your own ones :)
Once the fake nails are gone, I plan to try out Essie's semi-permanent gel nails, they have over 30 colors to choose from! Those are actually best-sellers from their collection of ~200 regular nail polishes. I've been wearing semi-permanent nail polishes for almost 2 years, but I didn't try the once from Essie yet.
Delicate dusted pink is my favorite color these days, I have soooo much shoes, bags and accessories in this color, and these nails match all of them perfectly.
For my last birthday I got a new Macro lens for my camera to take better close up pictures, so here I played around with it. I quite like the quality and how it creates a really shallow depth of the field with blurry backgrounds :) I feel like I need more time with it though!
And as far as Essie nail polishes are concerned, I think they're just unbeatable when it comes to the choice of colors they offer!
* the contest is open worldwide, but in order to enter, you should be able to come to Pro&Vidence nail bar in Paris.
