Manicure Madness

I never used to be the girl who painted my nails on a weekly basis. However, a few months ago I became absolutely addicted to gel manicures. Now I hate having unpolished nails. As much as I would love to keep getting gel manicures weekly, I need to cut down for both my (now fragile) nails and wallets sake. I’ve been giving myself at-home manicures all the time to fill my sad void of not getting gel manicures regularly. I wanted to quickly share with you guys this new, beautiful nail polish I discovered (even though I think I am pretty late on the bandwagon with this).


Fiji by Essie. In the winter seasons, I typically go for a dark or shimmery nail color. I wanted something different so I picked up this color. My sister started going on and on about what a nice color it is. In my head I was thinking “it’s just a light pink? How special could it be?” I now get it! After using it just once, I am completely addicted/obsessed/in love with Fiji. It is the perfect pale pink color with almost a whitish sheen. It’s different from all other light pink nail polishes I’ve used. It’s seriously like a pink paradise on your nails. I applied 3 coats of it because it is a light color – however, you could probably do with just 2 coats. The only downside is it will make you seriously crave the summer! Plus side?! (besides how pretty it is) the light color makes even your palest winter skin look tan!
