ESSIE SERIAL SHOPPER

Though my nails still haven’t reached their representable length, I decided to feature this surprise buy. I decided to get the shade Serial Shopper before going online and examining the thousands of swatches and reading through the reviews about the formula. Turns out, I bought a semi matte nail polish that is very jellylike and thick when applying. I am a fan of this formula. It’s somewhat sheer, so I ended up with 5 coats on my nails. A layer of base nail polish, 3 coats of Serial Shopper even though 2 were already fine, and another layer of top coat to turn this semi matte shade into a glossy one. The result looks like this.

I was quite surprised to read that this shade originally came out with the 2014 Neon collection and a few other bloggers agreed with me on the opinion that this isn’t a very piercing color. It’s somewhere between an orange and a coral, and I quite like the color, I can imagine it looking great on tan skin in the summer.

Those 5 coats I numbered before were a nightmare to take off. I don’t know if it’s due to the new base coat that I’m trying out (first base coat ever) or the nail polish formula itself or rather the amazing top coat that was one of my 2014 favorites. It must be the combination of all things mentioned. This surprise buy turned out to be quite the pleasant surprise, one I’ll definitely wear often during summer.

The book I am currently reading is Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. Before jumping into the world of LOTR, I will be devoting some time to these four ladies. Little Women was love at first sight. The cover was absolutely beautiful and creative, I had to buy the book immediately, having remembered it being Rachel’s favorite on Friends. I think I’ll keep it on the shelf by my bed even after I finish reading it. :)

    meni se bas svida. :) ne volim narancastu, ali zato sve nijanse koje id od narancaste prema koraljnom, i koraljnu :D, bas volim, pogotovo ljeti :)
    nokti su ti bas lijepe, elegantne duzine. :)

  • BREATH OF COLOR

    da, ovo je baš neobična nijansa, točno između narančaste i koraljne, ali mi se sviđa. s dužinom zaista nisam sretna, ali za tjedan dana će već biti bolje. :)

    ne, ne vidim baš neon u toj nijansi… na tebi izgleda divno u svakom slučaju! ne znam možeš li povjerovati, ali od 100+ lakova, nemam NITI JEDAN narančasti. imala sam jedan koji su mi kupili greškom (tko je već imao zadatak iskopati određene lakove, zamijenio je znamenke pa umjesto normalne boje kupio narančasti :) ), ali njega sam dala jednoj djevojčici koja će ga nositi. jednostavno mi narančasta ne stoji, potuče mi se s podtonom i prsti mi uvijek izgledaju prljavo.
    i (y) za little women, prekrasna je knjiga! kada završiš, svakako želim čuti koja ti je najdraža od njih 4. :)

    The shade is gorgeous!

    And that edition of Little Women is too adorable! Love it. :)

  • Iako nisam ljubitelj tako tih koraljnih-narančastih nijansi, slažem se da je odlična za ljeto i taman ten. :) Zarazit ćeš me Essie lakovima. :D

  • Veoma neobična nijansa. Da je više neon, ne bi mi se dopadala,
    ovako mi izgleda jako simpatično :))
    Predivne su fotografije, again :)

  • Vrlo primamljiva nijansa! :) Fotografije fantastične, kao i uvek.
