Nail files

I don’t know what’s gotten into me, but this year nail polish has become a big obsession of mine. I’ve actually started to enjoy doing my own nails. Before I used to always go to the salon and nowadays it’s more of a treat (that I appreciate much more than I did before).

I wanted to share some of my new favorite polishes from drugstore to department store brands that I’ve been loving as of late:


Essie's Lady Like is the perfect fall pink because it's more mauve. It has a also has a beautiful creme finish.

Jesse's Girl Stiletto is neutral taupe shade that leans a little grey. From swatches I've seen online, it also looks similar to Particuliere from Chanel at a much cheaper price.



Wet 'N Wild Purple Potion is a deep, dark purple with purple micro glitter. It's extremely cheap and how fun is this little tombstone bottle for Halloween?

Deborah Lippmann Naked is a beautiful, neutral nude shade that works for any occasion. This is such a classic that can be worn year round.

What polishes are you loving lately?

I love OPI's "Lincoln Park After Dark" color, i think it is perfect for fall and winter, it's a blackish purple and looks very similar to the wet n wild color that you posted, i'm sure the wet n wild would be a much less expensive option that is very similar in color. I also LOVE all the new essie colors that i keep seeing on display at target. I keep wanting to try some and I am so glad you posted the pic of the color "lady like" from their new color line. I think i will have to go pick some up!

Thanks for this post. I love seeing nailpolish reviews so I know which ones are must buys. Love the Essie and the Deborah Lippman.

ooh, I have to try that Essie's Lady Like.

I'm currently wearing OPI's Rally Pretty Pink over OPI's Chicago Champaign Toast. I don't like either of them that much, so I thought I'd try them together to see and it's not bad. Kinda fall-ish. :-)

I usually wear OPI's Lincoln Park After Dark on my toes this time of year.

I have the Essie's Lady Like on my toes right now! I bought it on the fly because I had to redo my toes for the wedding I was in...it is a perfect color and I can't wait to use it on my nails!

I used to only go to the salon to do my nails, but I have become obsessed with doing them myself. I buy a new polish every couple of weeks :)

I like Lady Like. I am a big fan of Lincoln Park After Dark too! I have a huge bin of polishes that I haven't been able to find since we moved. I swear I've looked through all the half unpacked boxes and still can't find it. I bought and have been redoing my toes in the same shade (Pamplona Purple) for about two months now. I need a change!

I love Essie's Tea and Crumpets- it is a perfect shade of nude, and it is the name of my blog!

I love that you are doing these!!! I am in love with the DL color. I need a perfect nude. Essie is growing in my collection although I always seem to go back to my favorite OPI. LOL! Missed you girl!

Pretty colors! I think that Essie color is my fav. I'm actually about to paint my nails a blue hue of MAC that I recently won in a giveaway. Can you believe I've never used a MAC polish?
