Cover Girl Pina Colada

Nail of the Day ~ Pina Colada, Cover Girl Limited Edition Glosstinis



Have you seen these mini polishes in stores? Aren't they cute? They are part of a Limited Edition Tropics collection from Cover Girl called Glosstinis. A perfect way to try out the brand and cute summer colors. They come in 9 shades and this one really stood out to me. I only have one other yellow polish in my collection. It's more pastel than this. Pina Colada is a true yellow cream and almost borders on neon in certain light. I used 3 coats with this but could have gotten away with 2 if not for taking pics for this post. Speaking of, I recently bought an iMac and I'm trying to figure out the best photo editing software. The one that comes standard isn't great {as you can see from these photos}. 

Did I forget to mention how much I love this polish?! I can't stop looking at my nails! It's opaque and bright enough for my skin tone to stand out. If your are medium skin tone or darker, this would look amazing on you as well. Do you own any of the new Glosstinis?

Essie in the cab-ana

Nail of the Day ~ in the cab-ana by Essie, Resort Collection 2013


This is one of two polishes I picked up from this collection. You can see my post on First Timer here. Truthfully, this one has been sitting on my vanity since I bought them both. Just staring at me. I liked it in the store. I like it when I see it on others. Once I got it home, I started to re-think it. I have a hard time with blue polishes. Something about this one wasn't setting right with me. Once I got it on my nails I figured out why. It's a little "young" for me and my style I think. I look at it one minute and love it. The next time I think I look like a 10 year old, lol.

It's a beautiful teal blue cream color. However, I don't think it photographs real well. The above picture is the truest color. Another thing, it's one of those polishes that appears deeper {to me} on the nails than in the bottle. Personally, I could live without this one.
