Summer favorites: nails and lips

Normally I don't buy nail polish. I just wear what my mom passes down to me. However, I do know one thing and that is I like the brand essie. Dare I say it... I even prefer it over OPI. With essie I find that application easier for me and it takes much longer to chip. I came across this sweet color Lilacism at the store and have been wearing it everyday. This is my favorite nail polish of the summer, hands down (pun intended.)

Orange Lips!

I know, I know.... Also, I'm a visual person so I'll remember the label by how it looks rather than what it actually says. So this picture is for all the art people out there. The label says "Rouge Artist Intense 39" by Make Up For Ever.

I came across this color in a Sephora in Miami while shopping. I've been on the search for a specific lipstick but I could never articulate what I was looking for until I saw "Rouge Artist Intense 39" by Make Up For Ever. This has to be the best find of the summer if not the year. I'm obsessed with this color.

  1. I recently had a pedicure at Embellish, where they use Essie over OPI. I had never heard of it before, but I'm in love too! It lasted for almost 3 weeks, and has such a pretty, glossy finish. Love the purple, and love your blog!
