Beyond Cosy by Essie (PROM #2)



SHOUT OUT TO SOPHIE, WAVERLEY, AND JENNY 

anyways, 

After I made this post about the shoes that I would be wearing to prom, I decided to turn my experience into a a mini series! I'll be posting about everything that I did in preparation for my Junior Prom. These posts will appear every now and then-- since I don't want it to be overkill… heh. Let's get started! 

For nails I went with Beyond Cosy by Essie. I'd been given this polish from a friend who knew what my dress looked like and I have to say, it matches PERFECTLY. This is a really great glitter polish for any sort of occasion whether you have a formal event or are just feeling like you want a little bit of extra glamour in your day. What I really like is how it consists of little specs of silver (two coats is perfect for a really opaque look) yet the polish itself has a yellow undertone. This makes it really flattering for people with both cool or warm undertones. The only downside to this polish is the lasting power-- without a topcoat, I started to see chips about 2-3 days after application. With a topcoat, it lasted around 4 days.

Just incase you missed it!

  3. I love that color! I have yet to pick it up because I already have a silvery glitter polish and (shouldn't) don't need another one in my collection. I always try to use up specific colors before getting another one similar to it. Excited for you and prom! ^_^
