A Luxe and Lush Luxedo

*This is a scheduled post, I'll be back the 24th. Maybe 25th if I'm too exhausted* 

Hey everybody! I'm almost at 100 members!!! Soooo excited. I wanted to really thank anyone who takes their time to read/skim my posts and enjoy the pictures. It really means a lot to me so I thank you, again. Meanwhile, I'm probably in NYC exhausted from walking and dying of dehydration since there was supposed to be a heat wave arriving the same day we did....Awesome.

For today I have a random Essie find from TJ Maxx. I originally went to see if I found any of the Deborah Lippmann polishes at $7 and no such luck but at least I found this lovely vampy Essie. Apparently (according to a quick googling), it was from the winter collection waay back in 2010. The formula was like buttah, two fast drying coats and you're done. Please trust me when I tell you, this isn't black. It's one of those really-it's-almost-like-you're-wearing-black shades, but classier looking.

It's shiny like a mofo! This is with no top coat!

Then I remembered I've never used my Luxe and Lush from the Hunger Games collection so I slapped that on. It's not my favorite because of the difficult application, but the effect was quite interesting once I was done. I went for some thicker coverage in some nails and I think, in this case, less is more.

A lovely vampy departure from all the summery colors I've been wearing. I also really liked this on my right hand nubs :D.

Thank you for looking!
