Set in Stones by Essie

Posted on

I’m trying to distract myself from the fact that it is way too late for me to be up right now, especially given the fact that I need to prepare for my brother in law and his family coming into town later on today. Sometimes I can be such an insomniac. I can’t really afford to  be one with a small child on a schedule (awake at 7 a.m., asleep at 7 p.m., and one nap during the afternoon for about an hour) because I end up becoming an exhausted zombie mom.

At least tonight’s insomnia won’t be in vain, right? I bring you Set in Stones by Essie.

Each photo shows a different type of lighting which really allowed the glitter to shine. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to capture the true awesomeness of this polish no matter what lighting I took the photos in.

Addicted.

Posted on

It’s official: I’m addicted to indie and franken polish. I’ve been “frankening” all week and  come up with five particular bottles I enjoy quite a lot. I’ve also ordered some suspension liquid, empty bottles, and other items to start making legitimate nail polish. Ultimately I would like to sell it but we’ll see how that goes.

In the mean time I’ll continue doing what I do: buying absurd amounts of polish and writing about it all here. This past week I’ve purchased:

  • Violette Coquette by Lancome (first Lancome polish)
  • Rose Boudoir by Lancome
  • Sunbaker by butter by London
  • Secret Peri-winkle by China Glaze
  • Sweet Hook by China Glaze
  • Scattered & Tattered by China Glaze
  • Lightning Bolt by China Glaze
  • Van Gogh’s Violet by Finger Paints
  • Paper Mache by Finger Paints
  • Set in Stones by Essie
  • Haley Good Lookin’ by Nicole by OPI
  • Confetti Fun by Nicole by OPI
  • Beige-a-vu by Nina Ultra Pro
  • Sparkling by Revlon
  • Seche Vite topcoat

Like I said though, I’ve been so wrapped up with mixing polishes that I’ve barely tried any of this new stuff out except for Rose Boudoir by Lancome and Set in Stones by Essie (which is AH-MAZ-ING, by the way!).  Here are a few bottles I’ve come up with:
