Nail Look: I Shine when I do the Mamba!

5 years ago

Missed me? >.<

I haven`t done a nail look for you guys since <strong>January 20th</strong>. Eep that was a long time. The last time I painted my nails too, well until this week. I was letting my nails rest from the constant polishing. Now I`ve been painting like crazy well until I`m bored or it chips. =D

I`ve said this plenty of times but I am on a no-buy on nail polishes. As much as it breaks me to skip out on so many gorgeous polishes this spring. I still have plenty of polishes I have yet to try and being on a no-buy gives me a chance to catch up on swatches and such. LOL

I was in the mood for something light and neutral. I didn`t really want to wear a nude polish so I chose to wear <strong>Essie`s "Mamba"</strong> which is said to be a <em>a shimmering café au lait</em> from the Essie website. I agree with the shimmers but it`s not exactly a nude. It leans to the peachy coral side in my opinion. Plus, this was gifted to me by the lovely A. Leung so I had to wear it.

When I first applied "Mamba" I didn`t think the polish would suit my skin tone at first but after the second coat it was growing on me but a part of me still didn`t like it, so then I decided to use <strong>Essie`s "Shine of the Time"</strong> for a little more pizazz. I had also applied <strong>Finger Paint`s "Twisted"</strong> under SOTT but it didn`t really show well and it was very thin. SOTT is a lot thicker with bigger flakes.

Essie Mamba is easily found at any place that has Essie polishes because it is part of the core line. On the other hand Shine of the Time is a little harder to find. It can also be found at the many places that sell Essie but since it`s from a collection that has recently been released the possibility of it being sold out and not restock is higher. Places you can check are drugstores: CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid, and Target. You can also check your local beauty supply and Ulta.

<strong>Do you have any of these polishes? How do you feel about the flakie trend?</strong>

Hope you enjoy my nail look. More to come soon. =D
