Summer Nailpolish Favorites

While it’s still mid-August, the expiration date on the summer of 2013 is quickly approaching, and I wanted to do a little round-up of my favorite #athomemani looks from the past couple months.

While it’s still mid-August, the expiration date on the summer of 2013 is quickly approaching, and I wanted to do a little round-up of my summer nailpolish favorites from my #AtHomeMani collection.

I tend to stick to neutral colors and red, with a bit of blue/green thrown in here or there.  I love trying new trends, and am forever on the hunt for the best pink ever (not neon, not translucent, leave it in the comments if you have a fave).  So, here we go – the best looks of Summer ’13!

If you want these colors for yourself, click the names below:

1. Essie “Sugar Daddy”

2.  Essie “Russian Roulette”

3.  Revlon “Cool Beige”

4.  Essie “Chinchilly”

5.  Sally Hansen “Girl Flower” – they dont make it anymore, but here are the rest

6.  Essie Sand Tropez

7.  Essie “Topless and Barefoot”

8.  Essie “Sunday Fun Day”


  1. I love Essie’s colors however I can’t get a mani to last more than a couple days because of chipping. Do you have any recommendations for a top coat to make it last longer??

  2. A base coat is essential, but I can’t seem to get one that doesn’t make my polish come off. (Weird I know.) Suggestions?

  3. I love Essie’s Chubby Cheeks. It’s like a salmony-pink, not too bright, not too dull.. super cute for summer/ early fall!

  4. LO! Hi! I love all the colors you chose:) So cute! I keep looking for Topless and Barefoot and can’t find it.. I don’t think they sell it in stores. Where did you find it? I may just have to order online. My favorite Essie so far is ‘Big Spender’, it’s a really fun pop for summer! 🙂 –Katie

  5. If you’re looking for a gorg milky-pink, Orly Kiss the Bride or OPI Sweet Heart are the only way to go!

  6. Hi Lo! I love these fabulous colors!! Thank you SO much for all of your amazing posts! I just love reading them and I love your youtube page!! I am such a huge fan of yours and also a fellow KKG! 🙂

    Where did you get your gold rings from? I am obsessing over them!!! Thank you!!!

  7. What is your favorite nailpolish brand?

  9. Luvin’ the you tube videos and the website! When I use pastel/light color nail polish it always streaks, and even after many coats I cant get it even & smooth. Any suggestions on how to make my pastels streak free??? Thanks!

Why I Fast on Mondays

Monday: oh, the duality of it. I love Monday and I also hate it with a deep passion. I hate that it will take a full 5 days for the weekend/nachos to arrive. I hate that I have to answer my emails. I hate that my alarm goes off and wakes me from my Sunday slumber. Yet, once I’m conscious I remember that I love waking up early on a summer Monday, hitting the streets before 8am when the city is still sleepy and heading out for a slow sweat at SLT. I love hitting the re-set button and having another chance to do and be. I also love fasting on Mondays, my chosen day of the week to detox until dinnertime (if you’re forced to begin your week, you may as well dive in head first).
