Where do the weekends go? I swear the older I get the faster time goes by. I took some time this past Sunday to do some beauty treatments and paint my nails which had been sans polish for a few days.

Dior Rivera a vibrant orange coral from Dior's Color Block Collection from 2012 has been on my wishlist for a while. I was lucky to have a lovely friend from one of the Birthday groups I am in on facebook send it to me. Although I love the brush on Dior's polish application was a tad streaky and inconsistent, I had to do two very thin coats to get an even finish. I love this color for summer, for the first time in a while I actually used the same color on my fingers as my toes.
What girl doesn't love a little sparkle. How about a nail polish infused with diamond dust? étoile luxury nail polish was founded by founder Erin Farber. Erin who lived in Europe for several years observed that European women got less manicures than what she was used to coming from New York, but they treated the occasion more special. Inspired by her close friends who were getting married Erin wanted to bring that special day feeling to her line. A polish fit for momentous occasions like a wedding. Taking chick nail polish colors and infusing them with genuine diamond dust, étoile was born.
The Greenwich St. Soirée is a beautiful duo comprised of Fizzy Cucumber a cool spring mint green and Pink Panache a bold hot spring pink.
I had a tiny bit of drag with Fizzy Cucumber, so I would recommend keeping the coats thin.
étoile nail polish is 3 free meaning it does not contain formaldehyde, toluene, and dibutyl phthalate (DBP) and is proudly made in the USA.
étoile nail polish retails for $18 per polish if you have the iPhone & android app WRAPP there is currently a $5 gift card available.
