🎃  FAV witchy  / fall nail colors
🎃 FAV witchy / fall nail colors
Together, I think these colors are the perfect gradient for a Fall-themed striped shirt. If you like any of the colors you see here, here’s a break down on each ~ ILNP BOUTIQUE COSMETICS - Holographic Nail Polish ILNP is known for making super glittery, unique polish colors. I adore this shade because when the light hits, you see blue, green, red, and gold flecks of glitter. But in dimmer lights, the gold is more noticeable. This makes it look elegant or party-esque depending where you go. My only complaint is I wish the color was a little more opaque. And it takes a steady hand to apply it evenly. It took 4 thin coats to get it to full opacity. Still, it dries drown reasonably quick- about 6 minutes per coat. And what makes it stand out from other nail polish is how s h i n y it is without a top coat. I wonder if that’s why they made the color almost -jelly like: to emphasize the shine. I got it for $10.00 on Amazon. That’s the same rate as popular brands like OPI and Essie- except you get more beauty and uniqueness for your buck. It wore on me for 5 days before minor chipping but I HIGHLY recommend this brand. 🌹 Wear this to go out at night or for a Euphoria watch party. essie - ⁣Quick Dry in the shade Taxi Hopping. I love this color. It’s like... an alien mustard. But it’s super flattering~ neither too bright nor too muted for my neutral-toned skin. This one is opaque in about 3 coats. At 2, you can still see the white ends of your nail. But the point of this line- Called “Expressie-“- is that is dries fast. Each coat was dry within 2 minutes. It wasn’t exceptionally shiny, but it was nothing a good top coat couldn’t fix. It wore for 5 days before I saw some shrinkage at the tips. It wasn’t patchy at ALL- which can be hard to pull off with unique colors like this. I got it for $9.00 at Bed Bath & Beyond. It comes with 0.33 oz, whereas most of Essie’s polishes come with 0.46 for the same price. But hey, the quick dry time and interesting colors more than make up for it to me. 🌹 Wear this for Halloween or to dress like an E-girl. essie - Longwear Nail Polish in Bubbles Only. Dark wine red is my FAVORITE nail polish color. This one was even and opaque on 1 coat. Though I did notice it has a slight pinky look to it when applied. It had a standard dry time similar to ILNP’s. The texture felt like liquid even though it’s a gel. I still need to wear it longer to see how well it puts up with daily duties! I got it for $11.50 at Ulta, and it comes with 0.46 oz like Essie’s regular line. You’ll love this polish if you’re looking for a trusty dark red that’s easy to work with. 🌹 Wear this... whenever and where ever. Red just has confident energy where ever it goes.

Foolproof nail polish when you’re in a hurry 💅
Foolproof nail polish when you’re in a hurry 💅
So, I typically HATE nail polish unless it’s shellac for two main reasons 1) I’m a trash human and my nail polish always chips after like an hour of wearing it and 2) I’m so impatient that I’ll ruin my polish before it dries 🙃. So the fact that I have found a nail polish that I actually like... is pretty mind blowing for me. My personal favourite right now is In The Time Zone, which is a cool toned, pastel pink. The good: + It DOES dry quickly! It’s by no means instant but it’s way quicker than I expected (like around a minute) and once it’s dry, it won’t move, which is so key for someone like me who instantly touches her nails to another surface. + The finish isn’t too shiny or too matte, it’s right in the middle with its amount of shine, so it’s a very easy everyday nail formula. + I personally like two coats, but I have just left it at one coat before. This polish is fairly pigmented so if you only have time for one coat, your nails won’t look patchy and it will still have a nice layer of colour. You don’t need to build this one up. + It’s around $10 for a bottle, which I think is a totally fair price. + I actually quite like this new packaging and the brush is kind of on this angle. The brush is super easy to work with and isn’t too thick. The not so good: - The wear time is still under a week for me when it comes to this nail polish. I do get some minor chips within the first three days. But I honestly think that nail polish and me just have a complicated relationship and I’m honestly pretty happy with a few days of flawless polish. - I really want a couple more neutral / light coloured options to play with from their shade collection. I haven’t been able to find a just straight white shade which I think is fun on everyone for summer time. I’m really hoping they continue to extend their shades. - I also don’t think they have a quick dry top coat... but I really wish they did! Worth it? I think if you’re busy, want a wash of colour on your nails and you’re not too fussed if this doesn’t last a full week, then I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised with this polish. I certainly have found it handy when I’m about to run out the door or if I’m going to a meeting in like ten mins. And for $10, I think it’s worth trying :) Will I repurchase? I’m already looking at new colours. Perhaps a nice shade of blue next?! 🥰

The BEST non-UV gel nail polish
The BEST non-UV gel nail polish
This is hands down my favorite non-UV gel polish! It was extremely cheap at the drugstore, and it gives you such a good bang for your buck! This is the shade Stay Classy (shown on my nails in the image- 2 coats) and is the best for busy people who also need professional looking nail polishes! After two coats, this polish dries down to a great glossy finish and stays on for almost an entire week without any chipping or loss of shine. The brush is a wide short one, which makes it really easy to quickly cover the whole nail, especially for short small nails like mine! After two coats also, you get to full opacity and really only need about 5 minutes post-application to fully dry down, so I would recommend this polish to anyone and everyone! I wear this all the time, and it even looks great with a bit of nail art! #cheriecreator #cheriepartner

As a typical dog person, I love my dog lots. Today is his birthday, so I got this simple but unique spotted nail look! Now it has become my favorite nail style lol. 😀  I care about both my pet's and my own health, so I only go for safe products without harmful ingredients. The non-toxic gel nail polishes I've used are OPI - OPI Gel Nail Polish in black and white. OPI is one of the top nail brands and worth purchasing with high quality. Their products are quickly-dried, long-lasting, and safe to use without toxic ingredients like DBP, formaldehyde, and toluene. Their products are literally the BEST nail polishes I've ever used! What do you guys think of this look? What will you do to celebrate your pet's birthday? Share your ideas below!

New Nail Polish Brand: Peacći
New Nail Polish Brand: Peacći
I've been trying the new nail polish brand Peacći which is by my favorite gel polish brand, The Gel Bottle. It's a vegan and cruelty free brand with a huge range of shades to choose from! I started off my collection with the Neon Starter Set. Each Starter Set includes a base coat, a top coat, a cuticle oil and three colored polishes. They claim to be long wearing, won't negatively impact the health or strength of your nails. Neons are my favorite shades to wear on my toes and this set includes three of them - a green shade called Serena (after the tennis star herself), a peachy shade called Sunshine, and an orange shade called Mamasita. Two coats of each shade gets you full coverage, and I didn't have to use a white polish underneath! I'm going on about 10 days of wear with zero chipping and the top coat is still just as shiny. I'll definitely be picking up more shades! They retail for $8.50 each which is comparable to other long wear polishes! Each Starter Set is $49.50 which gives you a bit of a discount. #CheriePartner

My Go-to Nail Polish for Autumn 🍂
My Go-to Nail Polish for Autumn 🍂
CHANEL - LE VERNIS Longwear Nail Colour Chanel Le Vernis in "646 Bleached Mauve" $28 Super pricey but after all it’s Chanel- you can’t expect it to be affordable. If you like to treat yourself with high end makeup, go for it. They have some beautiful colors and quality is usually very good. There's no strange chemical smell. But it's true you can get equally good (or better) nail polishes for way less, but it’s the case with most high end products. Well, I own Ballerina, Organdi and Afterglow. Organdi is the one I wear the most and also the shade I get the most compliments on. But today I would like to show you my another go-to color —— #646 “Bleached Mauve” I think it's the autume nail trend, it’s what i want to use when i want that natural look that can be worn to the office and for daily activities. If a neutral nail is what you'e looking for then this one is perfect for you, I love this pinkish-beige hue. It makes my hands look very clean yet polished. my nails but better shade. i can do 2 to 3 coats but 2 coats is enough with this color. I use the Base coat and the Gel top coat and it lasts for more than 1 week then starts to fade and chip which i dont mind repainting them. Sharing is caring. 💕
