NOTD - Essie Fiesta and a touch of something extra

Hello lovelies,

Oh my, I have been a very bad beauty blogger, haven't I? It's been a whole week since my last post! I do apologise, things just haven't been as they should and as such, there never seems enough time to do everything I want to do! I think I've been battling a cold as I keep sneezing, the onset of winter is never a good time for me!

Anyways, I decided to cheer myself up with a pop of colour on my nails! I used Essie Fiesta, which is one of the shades I picked up on sale not too long ago for a bargain $5 each! What a score! I classify Fiesta as a creme polish, and it applies just as beautifully as all the other Essie polishes do!

This is with two coats of Fiesta applied over Poshe basecoat, but with no topcoat (and you'll know why in just a minute). Without further ado, here is what Essie Fiesta looks like on it's own:

It comes across looking bright pink or even coral, depending on the light. It really is a very pretty pop of colour and I decided to jazz it up a bit with some demure nail art. I was really tempted to try for a lady bug look but thought I might get some strange looks from my manager, so I ended up just drawing on some black dots for a bit of contrast. I used my dotting tools and Revlon Lunar to achieve this look, finished with Poshe topcoat to seal it all in.

I hope you enjoyed my simple NOTD. :)
I'm so glad Monday is over, I'm off to take a hot shower and hit the sack (so I can hopefully stave off this cold I feel is doing its best to settle in).

Much love,


  1. Fiesta is intensely bright and beautiful! Love how you added the dots!

  2. Fiesta is a gorgeous colour:)

    The dot's give it the X factor X

  3. Such a fun colour, and the dots look great! Ela x

  4. It definitely is bright!

    Thank you all, ladies! :)

  5. I love this colour - Essie sure knows how to do a great Summery pink!
