Essie pink glitter NOTD

For today’s NOTD I decided to go for something pastel and glittery so I decided to try out Essie Bike Ride with a coat of China Glaze Fairy Dust on top.

Essie Bike Ride is a pink pastel with slight purple undertones to it. It was kind of a pain to apply as it streaks like crazy and is definitely a 3 coater. Having said that though I’m digging the colour and it’s worth the trouble.

Before I applied glitter, I added a nail decal to accent fingers using Pink Fin nail decals which I purchased from my local shopping centre. These decals are what got me interested and hooked on nail art last year!!! The girls at the stands are super friendly and they give you a free sample (1 nail decal on your nail) whenever you walk past. They also have nail wheels with different designs using the decals and I love to see what they have to get inspiration for my nail art. These decals are fantastic and last until you take your manicure off and even then I struggle to get them off sometimes! They come in a million different designs and retail for I think $4 each or 3 for $10. They’re great for a quick manicure and seriously you can buy them all. And I love the fact that it’s a little Aussie brand =)


I then applied a coat of China Glaze Fairy Dust which unfortunately is a bit hard to see in the pic below. I then sealed it all with a coat of Seche Vite.
