So I have a confession to make!!! I'm OBSSESED with lavender makeup at the moment!!I have been jealous for awhile of all the girls that could rock a killer purple lip. Unfortunatly for me, most of the darker purples just look goofy on me! I either look gothic or like I'm trying too hard to be different. I'm all about makeup being a medium to express yourself, but I also know my limits & dark purple lips are definitely on the other side of that line when it comes to my complexion.
Then a few weeks ago Mac came out with the most awesome lipstick ever! Lavender Jade!!! It was the shade of purple I've been waiting for. Not too dark so I didn't look goofy, but yet purple enough that you can tell I'm going for a purple look.
Being a makeup hoarder, I couldn't just let my lips be the only lavender thing I rock, so I did a bit of stocking up! Essie Under Where, yes, that's the read name of the polish. I sometimes wonder what these polish naming folks are on because really?!?! Under Wear?!?! Anyway.... This polish was a must have!
Two coats of Essie Under Wear on your acrylics and ta-da!!!! You now have a beautiful set of lavender nails! I used the polish on my daughters real nails and I even had to use two coats on hers, so it is a thinner polish. Regardless, there is no denying it, this polish is a must have for any makeup junkie or lavender lover!

I like the Mac lipstick and the Essie Under Wear shade looks great on your nails! Hmm, I might have to wear lavender polish myself!

This shade of purple is so hard to pull off.

Being a nail polish addict and loving Essie, I've got to say her purples are awesome. This looks so much like play date, but of course I'm going to need this. Have you tried MAC up the amp? It's the prettiest lipstick ever.

reading this blog makes me realize once the kids go back to school I need new makeup and most likely a mani pedi too.
8/29/2016 02:26:50 pm
I love that shade of purple. I wish I was able to grow my nails this long.
8/29/2016 04:23:43 pm
What a pretty color--makes me think of Spring. Essie is always my go to for nail care--their colors are the BEST!
8/29/2016 06:39:36 pm
I can't blame you, Lavender is easy on the eyes, very feminine, and really pretty! These are awesome products, that Essie nail polish is the bomb!
8/29/2016 06:47:56 pm
This color looks great but I almost feel like it is a spring color. My kids would also kill me if I shaped my nails that way! HEHE!
8/29/2016 07:23:05 pm
Under Where is such a strange name, but that polish is divine. Most of the polishes I own are in purple of varying shades. It's may favorite shade to wear.
8/29/2016 07:30:49 pm
I love essie! What a great color- so fresh!
8/29/2016 07:49:54 pm
Ooh. Essie is a favorite polish brand, I think it might look cute on my toes!
8/29/2016 07:51:06 pm
I love Essie Polish! And that color is amazing!!! Great choice!
8/29/2016 09:18:19 pm
That's a really nice shade of purple. I'm not a fan of the dark, scary shades of purple.
8/29/2016 09:22:45 pm
I am loving purple lately. This collection is just perfect for me! I love purple eye shadows.
8/29/2016 09:28:16 pm
I am an Essie fanatic! that purple shade is killer. Love it, but don't own it yet. Making the most of these colors before fall hits here!
8/29/2016 10:26:15 pm
Oh hey, I got my nails done today too haha. Last time I got a more purply colour, today I went for a darker violet. I don't think I can pull off a purple lipstick though - then it will be my turn to look goofy!
8/29/2016 10:28:32 pm
I love this! I've never tried Essie but need to after reading your post :)
8/30/2016 12:06:23 am
OBSESSED with this shade! I know what I need to pick up next time I go to the store!
8/30/2016 12:08:09 am
That Mac color is so pretty! The nails that nail polish people come up with... I want that job!
8/30/2016 03:59:49 am
Wow, I love your nails! I will check this brand, I just love the color!
8/30/2016 04:06:34 am
You are not alone in your lavender obsession, I own several of the items displayed in your pics. I love lavender too, because you don't see it that much and it stands out yet isn't too much out there.
8/30/2016 05:09:37 am
The lavender nail polish looks amazing and I love the sound of that lavender shade of lippie although I think it would look better on you than me!
8/30/2016 05:21:23 am
This nail polish is so cute! I love lavender in my nails.
8/30/2016 08:12:37 am
I will have to say that the name of the Essie Under Wear nail polish is indeed something I would never think of at all but it is really pretty. The Mac make-up I have not yet tried so I will have to check this lipstick out as well because the dark purples don't look good on myself either. Thanks for sharing these items.
8/30/2016 10:19:00 am
Love the color!!! I have a thing for lavender, too. Most of the nail polishes that I own are within that color scheme. :)
8/30/2016 10:26:47 am
Pretty nails. I am loving that color so much. It looks so lovely.
8/30/2016 10:54:20 am
I honestly think it's a fun name! I love purple and it's nice to see that Essie has the perfect shade of purple for our nails! That's really lovely. I think I get why the name is like that now.
8/30/2016 11:35:24 am
I painted my nails a similar color a few weeks ago and loved it. I'm a huge fan of purple hued polish, from the dark to the light.
8/30/2016 12:07:33 pm
I love the color of your nails. I have a similar color but a little darker than that.
8/30/2016 12:46:23 pm
I'm not great at pulling off bright colors so I usually shy away from purples. I'm sure you look great in it though!
8/30/2016 01:02:59 pm
Me and my daughters, we love coloring our nails. It is our favorite bonding moment.
8/30/2016 01:17:21 pm
I really love that color. Purple is one of my favorite because it goes with almost everything in my closet.
8/30/2016 01:22:45 pm
I love purple! These are wonderful products especially your nail colors!
8/30/2016 02:01:40 pm
I love the colors, very springy. But there is no way I could get away with those nails.
8/30/2016 02:19:02 pm
I have no idea how you keep your nails so long with little ones around. I could never do it.
8/30/2016 02:49:04 pm
That shade of nail polish looks awesome, I like it. My daughter just said she loves it too :)
8/30/2016 03:18:22 pm
That color is gorgeous! It goes perfectly with your skin tone. I just love how your nails look!
8/30/2016 03:43:54 pm
loving those nail colors! I can't possible pull those nails off anymore ever since I had my baby. It makes handling him a little more dangerous. So I have my nails trimmed short. =(
8/30/2016 04:01:21 pm
What a fun shade of purple nail polish!! I love light colors like this, it's such a pretty shade.
8/30/2016 05:18:20 pm
I love the look of lavander make up but I too am way to pale to pull off the trendy look. I do like sinful color nail polish vs Essie because of price but that shade is so pretty I might even pick up a bottle or two.
8/30/2016 06:36:18 pm
This shade looks like so much fun. I will definitely have to look into it.
8/30/2016 06:37:10 pm
I would love to see do my nails this color. This is definitely something I need to adventure with.
8/30/2016 06:37:54 pm
I never knew that there was so much lavender makeup out there. Who knew?!
8/30/2016 09:15:17 pm
I'm due for a manicure and gardening season is fortunately almost done for the year. I'll have to give this color a try!
8/30/2016 09:41:00 pm
Purple is such a regal color, it's always appealed to me. Like you though, I usually can't pull it off well. I love the look of your lavender nails and could definitely do that!
8/30/2016 10:37:13 pm
That really is a pretty color. I think the name is funny, lol. They do come up with some doozies.
8/31/2016 12:34:27 am
This is one of my weakness! I love the shade of this, so perfect for my outfit today!
8/31/2016 04:48:25 am
Such a pretty shade of purple! Also, I want to get cat nails but I'm so worried they will look awkward on my tiny nails!
8/31/2016 09:56:06 am
What a lovely shade of purple! i could never pull of a purple lipstick - with my skin tone I look sick (not to say like a zombie), but the nail polish I will defnitely try out!
8/31/2016 11:38:24 am
I love this color on you. I currently have a hot shade of pink from ESSIE but I think this color will be next.
8/31/2016 12:35:47 pm
What a gorgeous shade of purple! It looks absolutely amazing, I am going to have to pick some of this up!
8/31/2016 12:43:55 pm
I use MAC products too. I just love how it lasts and blends so well
8/31/2016 08:07:15 pm
That is a super cute color! Your nails always look so great :)
8/31/2016 09:29:23 pm
That is one gorgeous color! I have to pick up a bottle of the nail polish this weekend!

9/1/2016 12:05:33 am
I love that shade of purple. So pretty! I wish I was able to have long nails like you!
9/1/2016 04:55:16 am
Wow you're nails are so sharp and pointy haha but the lavender does look amazing and suits you. I can understand the obsession. Sounds like great products.
9/1/2016 10:47:09 am
I have been loving lavender lately too. I actually have my toes painted that color right now. It's perfect for the end of summer.
9/1/2016 02:35:35 pm
Wow that shade of purple reminds me of spring!
9/1/2016 05:46:05 pm
