I somewhat recently joined a new group called Hobby Polish Bloggers & they have put together a fun weekly challenge for May. I’ll post all four topics at the end of the post but this week was “Inspired by Fashion”. I looked through my magazines & was more alert watching TV but instead decided to go a different path. I mean, the accessories I’ve bought recently are fashion right? So if you keep reading you’ll see my adorable (& comfy!) crochet cobalt flats & my perfect for travel bright mint purse!
I bought this purse from Shopko because it is really small but has a place for all my cards & such. I wanted a bright, pop of color bag & this shade reminded me so much of a brightened Essie First Timer swatch I posted that it had to be mine. I needed something small for summer that I could wear to the zoo without lugging around my whole life since I’ve been hurting my shoulders/back doing that. Silly me. I seriously dug 12 lipsticks (not even gloss or balms, just the lipsticks!) out of my medium sized purse the other day.
For this manicure I used Essie First Timer (swatches here!) as a base then used my striping tape randomly & topped it with L’Oreal Miss Pixie Nail Polish. This is one of the new jelly shades I’ll be swatching this week & might even be my favorite. I love the stained glass look & the brightness of Essie First Timer peeking through.
What do you guys think? I love this mani & am still wearing it as I type! Do you like this combo?
