This week’s nail polish is Essie’s Hide and Go Chic from Essie’s Spring 2014 collection.

Essie describes the color as a “covetable azure blue.” It’s a very pretty blue-green color. It applied well and was opaque after two coats of nail polish.

The weather is finally starting to get warmer so I wanted to wear a bright fun color this week!

This week’s nail polish is Essie’s Chills and Thrills from the Essie Summer 2014 Neons collection! It is a beautiful purple/blue color that is described by Essie as a “supercharged blue violet.”

One coat did not cover well, but after applying 2-3 coats Chills and Thrills turned into a beautiful opaque color that was smooth with no streaking. I really like this color and this collection and there are a few more colors from this collection I’m thinking about picking up. You can find this nail polish and all of the past Nail Polishes of the week at my Nail Polish of the Week Luvocracy collection!

The book that I am currently reading is Life: An Exploded Diagram by Mal Peet. I’m about halfway through and am enjoying it so far!

Kaleidoscope 1

This week’s nail polish is  Formula X for Sephora Transformers Top Coat in the color Kaleidoscope. It is described as violet iridescence and it is a glittery shiny blue and purple duochrome, and we know how much I love duochromes!

I layered two coats over a black base and it really made the color pop!

It’s such a beautiful glittery nail polish, I definitely recommend it!

I loved the color so much I actually made a couple pairs of post earrings using this nail polish! You can find them here and here if you are interested!

Disney recently came out with a makeup line called Beautifully and I was able to get my hands on one of the nail polishes, a beautiful purple called Diva of the Deep!

Diva 1

Purple is my favorite color and this purple is gorgeous! This polish was so easy to apply. I used two coats here, but it was opaque after one coat!

Diva 2

If you’re in Disney anytime soon I definitely recommend picking up this nail polish.

This week’s nail polish is Topshop’s Tidal.

It is a very light blue that leans a bit gray. I don’t have any other nail polish that is similar to Tidal. When I picked this color up I thought it might be too white or too light, but on the nails I am absolutely loving it and it is very wearable.

It is a bit of a thicker consistency, but it applied well and was opaque in two coats. I would definitely recommend this color!
