Polishing Up

Nail Color: Absolutely Shore by Essie
So my manicure chipped off, but when I found this new color by Essie I was all ready to paint my nails myself. It is called Absolutely Shore and shows as a soft mint/ blue color. It's easy for the summertime and requires two coats to get the color shown above. With Essie I usually skip a top coat and the color still lasts about a week. Not too bad if I do say so myself.
I'm quite busy preparing for my trip in the upcoming two weeks. I take off soon in late June, but I still have a few loose ends to tie up before I depart. My trip starts off in Barcelona, and then goes to Ibiza, Geneva, Interlaken, Paris, London, Milan, Athens, and Rhodes. In addition to all the traveling, I will be taking two classes, which reminds me I still need to order my books. My fantastic memory dictates that I keep a list of all the things I actually need so I am off to finally type up what I need and hopefully cover any unexpected surprises. There is one thing I do know for certain: July will be filled with fantastic food, wonderful cities, nice treasures and exciting experiences.

  2. Loving the color. Seems like a lot of people are doing colors like sea foam green or similar to this.. Are you going to Europe for school? This sounds like exciting.. I've been to a few of the cities listed and without a doubt Paris is my favorite...

    All the best, Angel
