Essie Braziliant and Essie Vermillionaire

I had a terrific weekend. Incidentally, DBF was out of town for the weekend… is it bad that my weekend alone was so awesome? LOL. I met a NBer on Sunday and had a really great time.

Weekend haul / presents: OPI Glitzerland, Glacier Bay Blues (yahoo!), Essie Jazz, Essie In Stitches, Essie Mesmerize, Essie Absolutely Shore, Essie Sag Harbor, Essie Chinchilly

There's a hockey game on tonight, so I will be swatching these babies tonight!

I also got these super cute decals!!! Aren't they fabulous?!

So, last week, had a 2 hour flash sale in celebration of their Facebook page getting 400 followers/friends. The code was shared on NB and I broke my no-buy! I believed it was a sign that the sale was announced right after I had set up my blog sale (LOL, thank you everyone who purchased!! You made me feel less guilty XD).

Aveyou haul: OPI Koala Bear-y, OPI YDKJ Suede, OPI Have a Tempura Tan-trum, Essie Shelter Island, Essie Smooth Sailing, Essie Braziliant, Essie Vermillionaire

Today, I'm going to show you guys the two gorgeous orange shades I bought!

Essie Braziliant – From the recent Essie collection, this shimmery orange actually doesn't dry that shiny! I topcoated it for these pics. Very pretty! 2 coats.

Essie Vermillionaire – This is from last year's summer collection. I always thought it was gorgeous, but too bold for me. Luckily, after this wonderful year of nail polish appreciation, I feel confident enough to sport this on my tips! … on the weekend, at least :) Lovely formula, shown with 2 coats.

Piff mentioned recently that this polish was quite close to DL Lara's Theme. This nugget of info made Vermillionaire an easy buy for me, LOL! Thanks, Piff!

And a quickie comparison between Braziliant and Vermillionaire: They look more similar in the picture than they do in real life. I'm happy to have both shades.

I still have a lot of polish to go through and purge, but all these new pretties make me so happy! I'm so grateful that I am easily amused.

DBF is coming home tonight. My awesome weekend has come to an end (LOL). How was your weekend?!

p.s. I also ordered 2 more holos from fabuloustreet. BOOYAH.


  1. They are both gorgeous, I like the first one best! And those decals are adorable!

  2. Great hauls! The decals are amazing.  That crab is so cute!

  3. Vermillionaire is very nice! I've oredered only Too Too Hot and Meet me at Sunset from this collection. But now I am thinking about Vermillionaire, too :))

  4. You are rocking those oranges. I have yet to find one that looks good on me. When you break a no-buy, you do it in style! XD

  5. When it rains, it pours! :D

    Are you home yet, are you home yet?! LOL.

  6. I resisted picking those up this weekend!

  7. Yeah, that's how it goes with me. Weeks of nothing worth buying, then BAM I get like 20 things LOL

    No, I'm not home yet. Flight leaves at 4:40 today, so I won't back home until late!

  8. Haha, I'll stop harrassing you then. Have a safe flight! :)

  9. Soon, my precious... soon! ^_^

  10. so pretty! these roanges look stunning on you & i love your swatches always!

    (p.s. i'm still laughing about the crazy madness that sale caused on NB..haha such mayhem!)

  11. great hauls! I love the oranges, they look great on you. Looking forward to Jazz swatch :)

  12. Thanks! I'll  be sure to do a comparison of Jazz against my favourite nude, Orly Country Club Khaki!

  13. Thanks, hun! :) NB causes a lot of frenzy!
