Hey All,

Much to my dismay, winter really is on its way. ūüėČ

Winter is Coming

While being outside from November to… March(ish) in Denmark is super cold and really not fun fashion-wise (say goodbye to chunky rings, as they don’t fit under your gloves; and your lovely long hanging earrings that threaten to rip off your ear when they get caught in your scarf if you do try wear them!) it can be a really beautiful season. I took my inspiration from a winter night sky:Essie Mezmerised and Depend Rough Sparkle Forget Me Not Nr. 2065Essie Mezmerised and Depend Rough Sparkle Forget Me Not Nr. 2065For this manicure I used¬†Essie¬†Mezmerised¬†and¬†Depend Rough Sparkle¬†Forget Me Not Nr. 2065, as well as¬†some rhinestones from¬†this pack¬†that I purchased off Amazon.co.uk.

I used one coat of Mezmerised. Yes, you read that correctly: one coat. This polish has everything I love about Essie when they make a great polish: self-leveling, great formula (seriously, opaque in ONE coat!), and a true royal blue that doesn’t look black or neon somehow.Essie MezmerisedOnce that coat had dried, I sponged on Forget Me Not¬†with a make-up sponge to create a gradient — dabbing the glitter a little higher than I normally do, to make a shooting star effect. Once that was in place, I put my rhinestones on, and sealed the whole manicure off with¬†Sally Hansen¬†Diamond Flash ¬†Fast Dry Top Coat.¬†Essie Mezmerised and Depend Rough Sparkle Forget Me Not Nr. 2065Essie Mezmerised and Depend Rough Sparkle Forget Me Not Nr. 2065I love the effect of these two colors together, I even played around with this design, before settling on a night sky:Essie Mezmerised and Depend Rough Sparkle Forget Me Not Nr. 2065
