Turquoise & Caicos

This is such a near dupe to China Glaze “For Audrey”…. (and my Tiffany pouch).  “For Audrey” is the tiniest bit bluer.

Essie “Turquoise & Caicos”

IMG_2959

The Essie formulation is a little thinner and streakier than I would have hoped.  This was three coats.  Still lovely.

But of course, I splashed all kind of dots over it.  This actually made me want to lay off the dots just a tad.

Beauty and the Beast

Nope, not the Disney movie….

Audrey Hepburn & Nicki Minaj

Now as much as I detest Nicki Minaj, that’s a pretty girl!!  She’s not a beast, but she is a M –Effin Monster.  lol, pardon my pun.

Monster–Nicki’s verse

I am not necessarily a fan of Audrey Hepburn either.  I just have different honorees.  I haven’t even seen “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” but after my manicure, I DID add it to my newly acquired Netflix Instant Queue.  (shoutout to the sweetheart KK…. and my should-be boo, Oh. Smile)

PS. – I did use a base of black polish on my accent nails before applying 2 coats of “Metallic 4 Life”.

After my manicure, I used this sample from my new Mary Kay consultant—->> Nikki

013  017

Yes, this stuff works!   With all the drying acetone and alcohol swipes I use, my poor hands take a beating.  My hands feel sooooooooooooo nice after using this! Moisturized without feeling greasy; And my skin feels protected! YES, you should try it.

Soft, young looking hands are a good thing.
