Essie Flying Solo

Hey everyone! Hope you had a good weekend. The weather here was absolutely beautiful so we spent plenty of time outside enjoying it. We also made our own pizza on Sunday using DeLallo's pizza kit and pizza sauce and it came out amazing! Definitely recommend if you ever want to make pizza t home.

Before I get into today's nails, I just wanted to update you on my Olive & June order. I received it last week and unfortunately some of the items were incorrect, so I wanted to hold off on my swatches and review. I reached out to their customer service and they reshipped my order, which I really appreciated. It should be here today and I'm hoping to get a review up next weekend.

Moving on, today I have two more colors from Essie's Flying Solo collection. The color on my index and ring finger nails is the namesake of the collection, flying solo. It's a mid-tone, creamy pink creme that applied perfectly in two coats. I have this one on my toes as well! The color on my ring and pinky nails is one way for one, a blue based pink polish with gold frosted pearl and again I used two coats. The formula of this one reminded me of you do blue, which I shared last week.

Have a great week and stay safe!

Essie you do blue

Hey everyone! How was your weekend? The weather was beautiful so we made sure to get outside and take advantage of it.

Since I'm finally getting paychecks again (yay!) I'm catching up on a few nail polishes I've been wanting to add to my collection. I have the Olive & June x Zeba summer collection coming tomorrow so I'll probably do a swatch post for that. Today I'm trying out one of the three colors I purchased from Essie's Flying Solo collection. Can I just first say how much I LOVE the wider brushes Essie uses now? They seem to fit my nail shape perfectly and it makes polishing go super quick.

Anyway, the color I'm wearing today is you do blue, a periwinkle blue with violet iridescence. This is one of those color shifts that's more obvious in the bottle, but still looks lovely on the nails. The formula was great and I needed two coats for full opacity.

Hope you have a great week and stay safe!
