Multiple Looks with Essie Navigate Her

Weeee friday! I wish I could say I'll be sleeping in but tomorrow is my niece's first communion at 9am then brunch with the fam, and of course Sunday is Mother's Day so we'll see how that goes. This is the first year I've had to visit two families for holidays and it's odd since my previous boyfriend wasn't really close to his family, every year we would just spend time with my family. So ... yeah.

About the "Multiple Looks" thing, it's only two different ones. I exaggerated MWA HAHA. Seriously though, two is multiple. A low multiple, but a multiple nonetheless.I do have a decent amount of pictures to show, so I'll show you this pretty and mysterious collage and invite you to keep reading after the jump for all the pictures.



I started with two creamy coats of Essie Navigate Her. Great formula if not a tiny bit watery.


Then, I knew I wanted to do something with purple and I hadn't used the rhinestones I got yet, so I tried
that.



But I didn't like it. The rhinestones turned out a bit bigger than I expected so I took it all off, went to sleep and tried again the next day.




I stamped with BM-224 and China Glaze Gothic Lolita, which really worked much better than I expected! I really hate that I couldn't get better pictures of it though. All of them were either blurry, off center or the yellow background was too prominent but it is what it is. I AM NOT YOUR SLAVE, camera!

On another note, I really have challenge withdrawal! Last time when I finished the Black and White Challenge, the Spring challenge had sprung (ha-ha) so I knew I would start that soon, but now I have nothing, so I ask you to tell me if there's anything you would like to see. If its not ridiculously complicated I'll definitely try my best to do what is asked. 

Thank you for looking and may the Fridays be ever in your favour!

    1. Thank you! I do wish they were a bit smaller, but for accents they work so I'm still happy.

    1. Thanks! I'm pretty sure I got the idea from somewhere else since I'm not great at color combos.

  4. I seriously need to just get over it and buy this color, I stare at it longingly in the store every single time.

    1. I was doing the same thing! I'd grab it, walk it around, get its hopes up then abandon it near the register. I'm pretty sure there's a couple of bottles that hate me.

      Don't be like me, one bottle suffers every time we don't decide to take it home.
