Black Spots Over Green

Hi all!

Sorry I've been a little absent, between school and christmas-type social obligations my 'me' time in which I blogged and such has been scarce. For those of you who commented on my post about my friend's passing, your words really meant a lot and I wanted to let you all know that his death saved 5 other lives because of organ donation. We said our goodbyes to him on Thursday and, while it was very hard to see him like that, I always find funerals help to start the healing process. He is and will always be incredibly missed.

Let's get ourselves happy and look at some nails, yes? This is a mani I did last week when I was super rushed and contemplating some type of self harm because of a presentation I had due the next day. In order to keep my sanity, I decided to take a break and do my nails but it had to be quick so I grabbed from my untrieds pile on the table and these two looked perfect for each other.

I have two coats of Essie Mojito Madness with Sation I Paint in Peace on my accent nails and I topped everything with one coat of the black Fergie glitter from Wet 'N Wild.

I originally passed on Mojito Madness when it first came out but I saw it the other day and just had to have it. It's such a nice bright color and it has a great formula so I'm definitely psyched to have found it. Sation I Paint in Peace is a gorgeous deep green with silver shimmer and I LOVE IT. The formula is a little thick but not unmanageable and it covered completely in one coat! I really suggest picking up the Sation polishes if you can find them, I've yet to be disappointed.

Thank you for looking and have a great day lovelies!


  1. I love these so freakin much. That Fergie glitter continues to elude me, it's like every display crushes my dreams a little more when it has every one BUT that on the shelf. I may have to go back for Mojito Madness, I passed it up too when they came out. Also that Sation polish is gorgeous! I love me some one coat wonders.

    We both had a rough few weeks eh? Glad you're feeling better too!

    1. Thanks Kelly! We definitely both had a rough time but at least polish is always there to make us happier :)

      Let me know if your need/want for the glitter is too terrible, I think there's some floating around here!

  2. What a beautiful mani!!! Love the combo with the two shades of green.

    I didn't read about your friend, but I'm sorry to hear about your loss.

  3. Gorgeous. Love the colors, Kat. Love. Love. Love the colors. I can't find Sation anywhere around where I live. They've such pretty shades. :(

    Glad to hear you're hanging in there, sweets.

    Happy Holidays, honey!

    1. Oh no! I always find them at TJ Maxx or Marshall's but it's always a random assortment. I wish they were in a display or something like that.

      Happy Holidays to you too!! :D
