Son Of A Nutcracker

Son Of A Nutcracker is part of the "Cheers" collection that China Glaze released for this past holiday season.  I didn't purchase it back then because it didn't look Christmassy to me.  It looked like something that should be in a spring or summer collection.  Recently, I found it on sale so I picked it up.  I'm so glad that I did.  It's a beautiful deep coral with orange shimmer that glows on the nail.  It's way more appropriate for spring and summer in my opinion and I'm enjoying it this time of year.  This would be a gorgeous pedicure color.  I'm glad that I didn't miss out on it!

Picture Polish Merge

Merge is one of 5 polishes that Picture Polish has released for spring 2016.  It's described as a gray/brown scatter holographic, but it can look a bit more taupe depending on the lighting. I chose this one because of how different it is from all of the other colors that have been introduced this spring and it seems office friendly.

Essie Spring 2016 - My Picks

Essie has released a collection of 6 crème polishes for spring 2016.  Here are my picks:

Lounge Lover is a described as a "Pretty Pink Peach" and that's exactly what it is.

Shades On is a violet crème and my favorite of this collection.

Pool Side Service is described as a "refreshing cerulean blue."  I would describe it as a dusty teal.
