Cupcake Manicure with Essie Cremes!

I have a very picture-heavy fun post today! It's a short review of Essie She's Picture Perfect from the Resort Collection 2012. I also wanted some fun nail art so I have lots of pictures of my cupcake manicure that I did with my Essie cremes from 2012 collections:

She's Picture Perfect is a lilac creme with strong grey tones and a magenta sheen. The first coat was streak-central but the second coat covered the patches well. It also dried fast so I had to work quick with my brushstrokes and not go over a wet patch again. The magenta pearly sheen is only visible at certain angles in direct sunlight. I used 3 coats of She's Picture Perfect topped with 1 coat of Poshe:

For the nail art, I used a hairpin and the following polishes: Off The Shoulder and Fear Or Desire from Essie Summer Collection 2012, She's Picture Perfect from Essie Resort Collection 2012, Wet'n'Wild French White and Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Pink Blink.

Just so you know how much I love cupcakes, here's a picture with my cupcake-shaped nail file that my friend, Julia, gifted me!

And here's a bonus picture of cupcakes I made around last Christmas. 

 And my five hour Harry Potter cupcakes to eat before the last movie! *Dork Alert*

I hope you like this slightly unconventional cupcake-oriented post! Thanks for stopping by :)
