Nailtopia Be More Pacific & So Fresh, So Clean

Hey everyone!

Hope you had a nice weekend. We started looking at houses the last two weekends, which is totally exhausting and honestly not fun especially in this market. Hoping things get less crazy in the next few months!

I recently received two polishes from Nailtopia as a part of their Nailtopia Maven program. Their polishes retail for $10 and you can find them at Ulta

Be More Pacific is a light ocean blue creme and So Fresh, So Clean is a classic white creme. I used them both do so some nail art, which I haven't done in a looong time. Usually I'm so busy I just try to get my nails done as quickly as possible! I'm a little bit rusty, but the design is cute and the formula on both polishes were nice to work with. So Fresh, So Clean was especially impressive because usually white is tricky to work with but this one was an easy two-coater. 

Have a great week!

Orly Day Trippin' - Spring 2021

Hey everyone! It's been a minute. My nails have been in rough shape and constantly breaking because of all the hand washing. Ugh. With a lot of cuticle oil and hand cream I've managed to grow them back out so I'm back to share a great collection for spring!

About a month ago I saw the spring 2021 Day Trippin' collection Orly released and I loved every single shade. It's a really unique group of colors and unlike any collection I've seen a brand put out for spring. 

This six-shade collection is filled with 70's inspired saffron, terracotta, and turquoise cremes and has a vintage vibe. The set retails for $57, linked here, or you can buy the polishes individually for $9.50 a piece. The colors in the collection are:

  • Can You Dig It? - terracotta creme
  • Kitsch You Later - warm orange creme
  • Here Comes the Sun - saffron yellow creme
  • Happy Camper - pastel turquoise creme
  • Let the Good Times Roll - teal grey creme
  • Feeling Foxy - deep plum creme
I couldn't pick just one of these to try, so I tried the first five shades for a skittles mani. I used two coats for each and thought the formula was great. 

Which color is your favorite? I love them all, but Here Comes the Sun is my top pick. Hope you have a great weekend!
