Hi Lovely's!

So i had an epic fail with my laptop and camera!
I, of course, filmed the whole process of creating my sunbeam nails. I wanted to place it on my laptop, but he didn't recognise the disc. Checking on my camera again.....i'm missing a whole part of the film! Grrrrrr! I can get soooo angry when that happens!!
Anyway, i still wanted to share this with you guys, so i made a picture slideshow. (you can watch the tutorial here) Before i'll let you know how i did it, let me show you the result :)

If you want to see how i did this, read more after the jump...

Essie "Marabou"

Hello you all!

Since i started to read a few blogs with swatches i came across some bloggers who showed a polish of Essie. Most of them were very possitive about this brand. They find the colors opaque, smooth applying, just a "perfect" polish. Since i don't know where to buy Essie in the stores in The Netherlands i decided to ask my friend Jae from the USA to send me an Essie in our swap. I saw this beautiful color "Marabou". It's a pink polish with a subtle coral teint in it in my opinion. I'd asked her to send me that one in particulair and she did. Yay!!
Am i just as excited as the girls who's blogs i've read?

Uhhmm, no!
Let's start with the possitive thing. The color is BEAUTIFUL! I really love it!
When i started applying the first thing i saw the polish was quite thin. I prefer a bit thicker substance. The brush was pretty small which i didn't like much either. The first coat was very stricky, and the second was too. Eventually i needed 3 coats and some of my nails still weren't opaque. Well, just take a look at the pictures...

You can see my pointer finger has some "clear" spots after 3 coats.
Again....the color i like very much ♥

I thought this is the perfect color to make an elegant spring design with.
What do you think of this design?

Thank you for your time!
