Perfect Pair: essie Altitude Attitude & Funky Fingers Scattered Sea Shells

Funky Fingers Scattered Sea Shells The Daily VarnishY’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 :(

Barielle Orange Flame

Barielle Orange Flame The Daily Varnish 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 →

SinfulColors Prosecco

SinfulColors Prosecco The Daily Varnish 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 →

There’s something so easy and chic about red nails. I guess that’s why red polish is a classic!

essie Apres-Chic

essie Apres-Chic The Daily Varnish 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 →

nails inc. Mayfair Mews

nails inc. Mayfair Mews The Daily Varnish 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 →

Essie – Leggy Legend

Essie - Leggy Legend 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 →
