Good morning polished world! How are you all doing on this fine Saturday? We just had 60 degree temperatures, and now it's dropping into the 30s and we are supposed to get 3 to 6 inches of snow. Only in my town this would happen, but oh well. I kind of think it's pretty when it snows and the daffodils are peaking out bloomed. I'll try to snap some pictures and share on Instagram if it really does happen, because let's face it, 9 times out of 10 the meteorologists are wrong. Maybe it's some awful April Fools joke.
Today I am sharing with you a recreation of this manicure by 25 SweetPeas. I love lavender so so much. It's one of my all time favorite colors and unfortunately my nail polish collection is severely lacking this color. Every time a lavender is released in a collection, I run to the store for it and it's the first that is sold out. It must be everyone's favorite.
So when I received a bottle of Lavender Love by FingerPaints from the new Ashley Tipton Collection, I nearly jumped for joy. I need to go by Sally Beauty and buy out their stock because this polish is perfect. I'll talk about it more after we take a look at the manicure!
- FingerPaints - Lavender Love
- NYC New York Color - NY Princess
I am absolutely in LOVE with this shade! FingerPaints, you've yet to disappoint me with a polish. Two coats and full coverage, which with pastels can be difficult. No streaks, no patchy spots, no bubbles. Absolutely perfect colored polish with a perfect formula. It might be similar to China Glaze Lotus Begin color wise, but formula wise, FingerPaints wins. I might swatch a comparison for everyone and post it on Instagram.
I also love NYC New York Color in NY Princess which is on my ring finger. These polishes were released last year as part of the Fashion Queen Collection. All the polishes in this collection where glitter packed jelly polishes. Also known as, jelly sandwich in a bottle. Three coats for my manicure but you surely could get away with two coats!
What do you think? Do you love lavender as much as I do?
Kind of loving the flowers on this one now that I look at it more as I type this. They are supposed to be roses, but kind of look almost like carnations. Maybe? I don't know. Regardless, I love it.
Until next time, <3.
