I do believe spring is here. To stay. At least in Charlotte. There are even a few flowers blooming. Of course that means it’s time for the essie Resort Collection.
Historically the Resort collection is my favorite essie collection of the year. So I went ahead and ordered the mini set so I could try all 4 polishes. And to be honest…I’m a bit disappointed by this collection.
Under the jump is my review of all four polishes. You can pick up the Resort collection at Ulta.

We’re having a particularly frigid week here in Charlotte. So it’s the perfect time to dream about spring, right? For Spring 2016 deborah lippmann has released 4 new shades in the Gel Lab PRO formula. The collection is called Afternoon Delight and the colors are dreamy! Peaches & Cream is described as a full coverage […] Continue reading →
I mentioned in my post on essie Cabana Boy that the beauty section at my local CVS was going under a bit of an overhaul. Well, one of the things they added was the new 1 Step WonderGel line to the existing wet n wild display. For the longest time I was a huge fan […] Continue reading →
I don’t know if y’all have heard but the Super Bowl is coming. The Carolina Panthers and I happen to share a hometown. Charlotte is buzzing with Super Bowl hype. Right down to my local grocery store meat counter. While I’m not a big NFL fan I do hope the Panthers win. It’d be great […] Continue reading →
My local CVS is going through a bit of an overhaul in the beauty department. They are finally going to start carrying NYX (hooray!) but it seems they got rid of Rimmel. Anyhow, it’s still a work in progress. Remarkably I ran across the essie Retro Revival collection among the mess. There was no display…the […] Continue reading →
This week has just been blah so far. Between being out of town last week, then the over hyped ice storm and the Panthers games this week is just a huge let down. What solves that problem? GLITTER. Of course. Spazmatic was originally released in 2012 and is a really fun glitter. I like the mix […] Continue reading →
The city of Charlotte has lost its collective mind. Charlotte isn’t exactly what I would call a good sports town. But the Carolina Panthers are in the NFC Championship and the buzz around town is amazing. The bars are packed every Sunday and there are Panthers flags on houses and cars. Even though I’d hardly […] Continue reading →
My local CVS had Valentine’s Day stuff out before Christmas (seriously) but now that it’s the middle of January I’m ready to face the fact that Valentine’s Day is around the corner. I’ve always really liked Valentine’s Day. So, of course, I’ve already made plans. The boy and I are going the Charlotte Symphony for […] Continue reading →
I’m back with an update. I emailed a link to my post last Friday regarding the lip problems that the EOS lip blam caused. They responded in a timely manner (especially considering the amount of emails they must currently be getting!). There’s a copy of the email under the jump. Just a little update on […] Continue reading →
This post has absolutely nothing to do with nail polish. But it’s a beauty (and health!) related matter and if it helps one person avoid what I’ve been through the last 2+ months then it’s worth it. I’ve been an EOS lip balm fan for ages. I’ve gone through quite a few of the cute […] Continue reading →
