Fall Nail Pick – Essie Nail Polish in Stylenomics

What are you feeling this fall for nails? In looking at the 2012 Fall Collection of Nail Polish from ESSIE, yes, reds are repped, which are always great for fall and even a burgundy and two greiges but thee color from the collection has to be the “on the money opulent green” called Stylenomics. It’s like the green version of Chanel’s Vamp. Such a breathe of fresh, cool autumn air! $8 @

Essie Navigate Her 2012 Spring Collection

ESSIE just put out their Navigate Her 2012 Spring Collection  and I find it interesting that three of the polishes are on the pastel side and the other three are bright pigmented colors. Kind of like it because a woman’s nail polish mood changes pretty much daily.

Essie Summer 2010 Collection

Essie-Summer-2010-Collection Going from this one to ESSIE’s Summer 2010 Collection of Nail Polishes is about as much night and day as you can get. This year’s runways reflected the ease of the season with youthful, upbeat clothing in feminine fabrics … inspired by vivid pastels  at Versace and the splashy florals at DKNY, (Essie created) the collection was created to reflect the youthful, fun-to-wear flirty frocks.” I think this could have been just another collection without the Pretty Edgy shade. It really help tie all the colors together beautifully.


Color picks from L to R: Demure Vixen (iridescent cocoa mauve), Haute As Hello (racy, scorching coral), and Pretty Edgy (vivid palmetto green). $8 @

Essie & Fing'rs Help Nails Get Summer Ready

What a great pinky-pink based collection ESSIE’s new Summer Collection 2009 of Nail Polish ($8 @ is. I’m really being drawn to the unique ones in the bunch. Below are our picks:

And speaking of original, how about adding some cute flowers, hearts or crystals to your tips or toes? FING’RS’ Nail Art Variety Pak ($5.49 @ contains over 150 decals that you simple stick on and apply a top coat to seal. Fun, fun!
Don’t have time to even do your nails, there are many cool designs of press on ones out there now. One design I wore all this past weekend from FING’RS’ Hardcore Nail Addict, Short Length, Black & White Check ($5.99 @ I’ve never received so many complements on my nails in one night!
