Y’all. I don’t even remember the last time I saw blue sky. It has been horribly gloomy in Charlotte this past week and while we have gotten some much needed rain I am over the overcast with a side of mist weather forecast.
To cheer myself up I decided to give Funky Fingers Scattered Sea Shells a whirl. I mean…a sunny beach sounds pretty good to me right now.
I was already wearing essie Altitude Attitude (which I LOVE) and topped it with one coat of Scattered Sea Shells. I really liked the resulting manicure even if it looked a little Valentine’s Day-esque.
This manicure actually reminded me of a manicure I did with OPI Bearest of Them All. Scattered Sea Shells isn’t necessarily a dupe of that polish bit you can get a similar look for a fraction of the price.
Funky Fingers polishes are sold exclusively at Five Below stores. Lucky you if you live near one! I don’t

Oh hey, glitter. Long time, no see! I’ve been definitively in a creme finish polish mood as of late. But, lets be honest, that gets a bit boring after awhile. Orange Flame has been in my stash for quite awhile. It’s from Barielle’s Spring 2015 Glitter Mania collection and for one reason or another just never made […] Continue reading →
This polish has been a long time lemming and finally I have it thanks to Katie. She sent it to me (with a bunch of other stuff) for our friendaversary. Prosecco isn’t a polish I would normally go for but with the name (I am a presecco addict…I’ll admit it) and how gorgeous the shimmer […] Continue reading →
It has been cloudy and rainy for days and days (and days). I don’t even remember what the sun looks like. It’s probably never coming back. I decided to get a start on Barielle’s Mirror, Mirror collection and grabbed Feathered Slippers. It matches the weather perfectly. Do you know what Feathered Slippers are? I kind of imagined they’d […] Continue reading →
I go through nail polish phases and lately I’ve been all about red nails (as if that wasn’t obvious from TDV Instagram feed!). There’s something so easy and chic about red nails. I guess that’s why red polish is a classic! Altitude Attitude is from essie’s winter 2015/2016 Virgin Snow collection and is described as a […] Continue reading →
Bronze is a big trend in nails this fall and while not my first choice when it comes to metallic polish (#TeamSilver) I’m trying to embrace the trend. When it comes to bronze polishes Barielle Autumn in Seoul is one of the better options for my particular skintone. It’s a beautiful polish and absolutely perfect […] Continue reading →
Fall is officially here but I’m about to share a polish with you that’s supposed to look like sand. I know, doesn’t make sense. But the boy and I are vacationing in Myrtle Beach next month and I’m already dreaming of fall weather with a side of sand and ocean air. Ah. Anyhow. This is […] Continue reading →
Yep. This is happening. I’m about to talk about a polish from a winter collection when the first day of fall was yesterday. But…all that aside. I’ve been excited about this collection ever since I saw an ad for it in Nailed It! magazine. Apres-Chic is a super shimmery opaque silver chrome. I love this […] Continue reading →
Oh goodness. I have mixed feelings about this polish. Mayfair Mews has been hanging around my house for quite a while. It was part of the nails inc. Cracker Collection I picked up from HauteLook the end of last year. I kind of dragged my feet on trying it simply because I wasn’t sure how I was going […] Continue reading →
Leggy Legend! THIS is the polish I’ve been most excited about this fall. Leggy Legend is the namesake polish of Essie’s Fall 2015 Collection. Wearing this polish makes me feel like a rock star and Essie’s official description seems to back that up: shimmer. shake. shine. this glamorous alloyed bronze bombshell is the soul of rock chic. I’m pretty much […] Continue reading →
