Haruko macro
This collection was so pretty. Formula on Darby and Haruko was on the thin side but became opaque on the second coat. The cremes could be one coaters if you have a heavy hand. I always like to do two coats. My favorite from this collection is definitely Haruko. It looks so pretty in real life.

Let me know which one you liked best and your overall thoughts on this collection.

These are available now at for $60 (US) for the six piece collection and $10ea (US) individually.

Essie Nail Polish: Treat Love & Color Part 1

Treat Love & Color is an advanced 1 step care and color formula which means no base coat or top coat are needed. In a week nails are instantly brighter and stronger. I'm actually excited to try these since my nails have been breaking a lot and have been peeling.

I received different finishes, from cremes, shimmers, and sheers and various colors. I will be showing 8 of the 13 today and the rest later this week.
