Weekly Color Inspiration {Pools, Lakes, Parks…}

Green-Blue Essie Manicure by Miss Renaissance

{Lime green – Essie the more the merrier.  Teal – Essie Naughty nautical. Blue – Essie Bouncer, it’s me!}

Pools, Lakes, Picnics in Parks, the Beach…that’s what Summer’s made for! It looks like Essie got the hint, because all three of these fun colors are from the latest collections. I used them to create a loose ombre mix….and I like the result! It’s a perfect Summer mani, right?


Weekly Color Inspiration {Summer Red & Sky Blue}

Bright Red & Teal by Miss Renaissance

{On all fingers, except index fingers – OPI Monsooner or Later.  On index fingers – OPI I can’t find my Czechbook.}

Somehow this week’s color combo feels both French-inspired & nautical to me. This must mean that I should immediately head to France & get on Sail Boat for vacation, right?!! K, brb.

But seriously, this bright red by OPI is amazing. It’s so fresh & classic – it’s the perfect Summer red! Do you have a favorite classic red for Summer?


Weekly Color Inspiration {Shades of Coral}

Ombre Corals Manicure by Miss Renaissance

{Lightest Color – Essie Haute as Hello.  Medium Color – Essie Capri.  Darkest Color – Essie Forever Yummy.}

What’s better than one post in a day??! TWO! Yay!

I thought I’d go with a range of Coral shades this week – it’s such a Spring thing. Essie’s “Haute as Hello” has been one of my favorite shades for a long time now (so versatile), and paired with deeper corals/reds it keeps it playful and light. Happy Spring, everybody!


Weekly Color Inspiration {Tone-in-Tone Copper}

Tone-in-Tone Copper Manicure by Miss Renaissance

{On all fingers, except index fingers – Deborah Lippmann Superstar.  On index fingers – RGB Copper.}

Yep, yep, Copper is still all the rage…well, in my mind at least! It’s the more “understated” of the metallics, which makes it almost a neutral & warm shade that goes well with basically any skin tone. Deborah Lippmann’s “Superstar” is an amazing color – it’s got a dark, almost black undertone with bright copper sparkles mixed in. The coverage is great in just one coat, and it lasts and lasts without chipping (great choice if you’re planning on traveling and won’t be able to get a touch-up)!  Matched with RGB’s “Copper”, one of my all time favorite metallics out there (I own several bottles just as back-ups), it’s a dream combo.

Have an awesome weekend, Lovelies, and Happy Mother’s Day to all of the awesome Mommies out there!


Weekly Color Inspiration {That Happy Feeling}

Coral & Purple Mani

{On all fingers, except index fingers – Essie Dj Play That Song.  On index fingers – Essie California Coral.}

BOOM – that’s how I felt when I saw this almost-neon purple the other day! It just makes me happy every time I look at it, and paired with an equally happy shade of coral this combo is in-your-face-ready-for-Spring/Summer. Yep! What do you think? Love it? Too much??


Weekly Color Inspiration {As good as Nude}

Manicure by Miss Renaissance

{On all fingers – Essie in Maximilianstrasse Her. Glitter tips on all fingers – Julep in Jane.}

Nude nail colors are super hot for Spring/Summer….and while I like the idea, until I have at least a hint of a tan on my ghostly white skin, I’m sticking with a little color. So, I declare this Slate Blue/Nude Glitter combo my current “Nude.” Cool?!

Have a beautiful weekend, Lovelies!


Weekly Color Inspiration {a Spring Breeze}

Manicure by Miss Renaissance

{On all fingers, except index fingers – Butter London Jasper. On index fingers – Essie Penny Talk.}

I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect shade of yellow for what seems forever! All yellow nail colors I’ve found had either been too saturated, or too neon…until now. I think I’m in love!! This bright yellow by Butter London is perfect! It’s not too orangey, nor does it have a neon tint. It’s the perfect Spring shade, right?! Paired with a little copper metallic, and it’s a sunny party on my hands.
