Happy Easter from The Beauty Edge!
Here’s my last minute DIY Easter Mani! I used Essie Love Every Minute as a base coat and layered one coat of Dior Princess over it. For my accent nail, I chose Dior Lime and Nicole by OPI Inner Sparkle for some added glitz.
In an effort to protect the Easter Bunny ;), I thought it would be cute to share a list of companies that do not test on animals. The full list can be found on Peta.org.
- Bare Escentuals
- Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare
- Everyday Minerals
- Physicians Formula
- Tarte Cosmetics
- Urban Decay
- Smashbox Cosmetics
I went out last weekend and I wanted a sexy manicure to match my LBD. I had recently seen a pic posted by Kim K. on Instagram of a black on black manicure. I liked the idea of back on black matte – but I wasn’t so thrilled about the french tip design.
I picked out China Glaze Black Diamond – a gunmetal black and paired it with a matte effect top coat. My manicurist created designs using black and silver nail art polish. I am in LOVE – I have not stopped looking at my nails. My nails look soo fierce – like a manicure Beyoncé would choose!
With Easter coming up this Sunday, I decided to get an Easter Egg inspired manicure. Originally I wanted to use Essie’s she’s picture perfect as my base color (it’s a nice lilac), but unfortunately my nail salon did not have that color. After a few other choices I finally picked China Glaze’s IV, a color from their X Collection. This polish is a creamy coral pink, it doesn’t have much shine and I’ll admit I’m not a big fan. I guess I’m upset I didn’t get the color I wanted. I thought about using Essie’s to buy or not to buy, but the lavender was too pale.
My nail tech, Blanca created the cute little Easter Egg design for me. She did it free hand and used nail art polish in yellow, purple and mint green. The design is what saved the manicure for me. I can’t wait until next week so I can finally use my Essie sure shot! Stay tuned for that review next week! Happy Easter Everyone!
