I was feeling a bit nail venturous this past weekend and decided to get an over the top manicure. A manicure design from Nails by Kayla Shevonne was just what I needed! This color block manicure requires 5 different shades of nail color. I chose the following polishes; Color Club All Over Pink, China Glaze Celtic Sun, Essie Status Symbol, Essie Bazooka, and dark blue nail art polish.
My amazing nail tech, started off my stenciling out the sections with black nail art polish after applying a base coat to my nails. She then filled in each section with each different color. At one point we joked with each other because it felt like she was “painting by numbers”.
I love this manicure, it’s so bright and colorful. It features color blocking with a trendy mix of colors. It has the popular summer combo of pink and orange and the up and coming fall shade of deep blue. It reminds me of stained glass, I hope this mani lasts a whole week!
Essie Fiesta is a great hot pink nail color. It’s a creamy formula with a high gloss. The nail design was created by my nail tech. She used a generic nail lacquer in turquoise and used hot pink and black for the funky nail design. I’m always open to the creative process, so I let her do whatever she wanted. I think it looks like tropical fish, someone else thought it looked like a feather design! What do you think it looks like?
Essie Off The Shoulder is a pretty bold hot pink. It’s not as electric as Essie Lights, but I still love it. It reminds me of Avon’s Nailwear Pro in Viva Pink, one of my favorite shades of pink.The formula is creamy, the first coat was a bit streaky, but the second coat blends everything together. I’m really liking this collection!
Essie Camera is a bright neon coral pink
Essie Action is a bright neon yellowish-orange
Essie Bazooka is a bright neon orange
I love how all the colors in this collection compliment each other; but these polishes look dull without a top coat, so make sure to apply one to achieve the ultimate neon trend. Essie Bazooka is also very similar to Essie Orange, It’s Obvious. All in all, it’s a fun collection!
NYX Black Label Lipstick in Hot Pink BLL-101 adds a bright pop of color to your lips. It’s a versatile shade and I think just about anyone can pull this shade off. The swatch is true to the color of the product, a cool fushia.
This lipstick glides on smoothly and hydrates your lips. It’s a super creamy lipstick with a lot of shine. The Black Label line offers top-notch products, that are long-lasting and available in a variety of colors. I also have this in Diva, one of my favorite shades. I plan to buy more!
NYX Black Label Lipstick $7.50

Essie Tour de Finance – Spring 2012 Collection
I just could not wait to review this gorgeous color! My nails are not even completely dry yet and I absolutely adore this polish color!
Tour de Finance by Essie is a super glossy cool magenta pink. It is slightly iridescent and very shiny. It’s perfect for spring. This color is similar to Essie’s Super Bossa Nova which launched last summer, but it’s a bit lighter.
Update: My manicure lasted almost a full week and the high gloss shine was still visible on day three. All in all, I think I will definitely go back to this color again through out the spring and summer!
