Essence - #116 Gorgeous Bling Bling

Hey there!  Long time, no read!

I apologize for missing in action.  I will explain at the end of this post, but first I have a simple work mani to show you, a nice terracotta with gold flakies from Essence.  This one is called Gorgeous Bling Bling.... below is two easy coats.  I thought this was a nice polish, it stood out in a sea of reds, pinks and neutral nail polishes, yet, is tasteful/respectful.

I got my 8 ml bottle for $1.99 at Ulta.

My husband's mother passed away, in her home, and on her own terms on November 16th. I wasn't going to say anything but decided maybe I should since she let me do a post on her nails last year.  So we travelled down to Florida for her funeral and my husband and I stayed down there for Thanksgiving as well.  Needless to say, I was on the road for two and half days and had spotty internet along with a hectic schedule so... that is where I have been.  Although we are all saddened by her death she is in a better place. 

Well, that is it for now.  Thanks for stopping by.

  4. Interesting colour- I don't have anything in the terracotta range, now that I think of it.

    I'm so sorry to hear about your mother-in-law... what a difficult situation. It sounds as though she had some challenging health issues. As you mentioned, at least she is at peace now. My condolences to you and your family during a tough time!

  5. I'm sorry to hear about your family's loss, but it's good to know that you're back and well. I think life is best lived a day at a time and I'm pleased to know that your husband's mother passed away, as you have placed it, at her own own and terms. :) virtual hugs

  6. I have this colour too and I really like the flakes in it, it makes it stand out!
