Another look at Essie Wicked

Years ago when I first started painting my nails in earnest, I researched online for the best polishes and topcoats. I distinctly remember TONS of people online recommending Essie Wicked and Seche Vite topcoat. I really believe that if you try a polish and topcoat that work extremely well, it will most likely change the way you look at nail polish. It’s like a beginner artist trying professional brushes and paints for the first time—you see how the tools really can make your job easier. That’s the experience I had with Wicked and Seche Vite.

I’ve mentioned in the past here at Daily Something that I adore Essie Wicked. It’s the perfect vampy dark blood red, in my opinion. It can almost do no wrong. That’s how much I love it. Well, since we’re knee-deep in autumn nail polish colors, I thought Essie Wicked deserved another look.

It’s really quite a color-shifter. Indoors, it looks almost black. But in direct sunlight, it’s a deep burgundy red. So pretty. :)

VIDEO: Polish Tips! Getting the perfect white manicure

I recently found some old video footage that I shot back in June. While I don’t like the particular polish color I used in the video (I think it’s technically a white neon), the tips included in the video are valuable because white (and super light) nail polishes are particularly challenging. It can be difficult to get perfect results.

Here are some tips and tricks for getting the best manicure possible when using white polishes. :)

NOTE: The polish I used is the video is Mod in Manhattan from Color Club. It was included in a Birchbox sample box.

Cutesy Halloween Stamped Manicure

Sorry for not posting for SO long, guys! I’ve been posting nail pictures on my Instagram, though. Be sure to check those out.

Anyhow, this is definitely not one of the gruesome, scary Halloween manicures out there. Yikes! I’m definitely more of a Casper the Friendly Ghost type of Halloween celebrator. :)

Here are the details on each finger…

All nails were topped with Seche Vite topcoat. :)
