NOTD : Ballet Slippers and Mademoiselle by Essie

June 23, 2012

Hey everyone! I’m a bit tired so I’ll make it quick… I just wanted to show you my nails today. I’ve got a lot of compliments on them!
I went to do my nails earlier this morning and decided for once to mix two different shades. I’ve never done this before, I’ve always seen my mom do it and thought that it was a bit weird!
This time I’ve asked the lady doing my nails to apply a coat of Ballet Slippers then a coat of Mademoiselle over that (both by Essie).
I fell in love with the result at the end! It’s your nails but better. My nails looked so clean! It’s a change of all the bright or dark colors that leave a nasty stain on your nails.
I went to Bloomingdales earlier this evening, and I’ve got a tons of compliments on my nails! Specially from the salesladies selling the Ciate paint pots.

I’m really tired! I’m going to have some beauty sleep now. I hope you enjoyed your weekend! I sure had a very busy one!

What colors do you like to mix? Tell me in the comments bellow 🙂

    this may sound really weird and awkward but you have really nice nails/nail-beds! This looks like the perfect classy combo ever – I have both but never thought of mixing them both! Can’t wait to try this!
