Hello loves!

Today's Manicure Monday started off as a nautical-inspired creation, but ended up turning into a more beachy inspired one, probably partly to do with the name of that L'Oreal nail polish! As I mentioned above, I am not a huge fan of the Essence Gel-Look top coat. While I am a big fan of the brand itself, it pains me to say that this top coat just did not win me over. Even after having let the polish air dry for about 5-6 hours, it still left imprints and slight bubbling on some nails (my right hand) when I woke up the next morning. I've also tried to use it with other polishes, but still a no-go. Instead of this, I'd highly recommend the Nutra Nail top coat.

Have yourselves a wonderful week ahead, and  I will see you back here tomorrow for June's Two Look Tuesday! :)

  1. Eek this is too adorable! My topcoat (Sally Hansen) used to be good but now I constantly get that bubbly effect and I'm so fed up! Need a new one stat. Also, love beach-inspired beauty posts, hitting the pool myself later today.

    P.S. Just finished watching the Great Gatsby and I loved it! Leo was extremely handsome as usual hehe ;) I don't understand the haters out there either, but I guess almost every book-to-film adaptation will stir up controversy.

    1. I know, me too right?! Even though I'm not the biggest fan of beaches and the sun, I still do love myself a good ol fashioned nautical/beachy inspired mani!

      Yes! I don't understand what is up with some of these formulations, its like up until a certain point they don't work as well as they used to.

      Ahh, Great Gatsby.... <3. That's all I have to say!

      xo,
