Something With Orange and the New Black…

As the air gets warmer and the sun shines brighter I’ve noticed I’ve been gravitating towards lighter colors both in my wardrobe, as well as in my make-up stash.

Here’s three of my current faves all in a suspiciously similar shade of pale tangerine. You’ve seen the Sephora blush in Orange Pop, as well as the Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfector in 02 about a million times on here, so no surprises there. What’s new though is Essie’s Resort Fling that a cute little easter bunny (hi mami) snuck into my egg basket.


What’s your favourite color of the moment, and any more spring-y nail polish shades I should add to my collection?

Monday’s Mani

IMG_3221I like to begin the new week with a fresh coat of lacquer on my nails. It’s a nice sunday ritual and makes me feel put together and ready for a new week. For this week’s mani I’ve opted for Essie’s Marshmallow, a nice light white that definitely needs some layering – here I’ve applied three coats. Usually any polish will chip within a couple of days so for the rest of the week I like to allow my nails to breathe. However, I’ve recently discovered Essie’s No Chips Allowed  and thought I’d give this a go to see whether it would hold its promise. I can’t say anything about it yet as I’m still testing it out but I’ll give you a quick update towards the end of the week.
