today's beauty purchases: essie & maybelline

i've been thinking about a nail polish purchase lately, and when i stopped into walgreens, the essie section was beckoning to me. i walked away with this pretty mama:

the shade is called 'e-nuf is e-nuf,' and it is described as 'a subdued creamy coral.'
i am LOVING this color.
it's what i would describe as a 'reddish pinky coral,' which is what i was searching for.
i can't wait to paint my nails with this springy-summery hue.

i also picked up ANOTHER maybelline super stay 24 color:

the shade is called 'eternal sunset,' and on the lips, it's a flattering coral color with gold shimmer.

it's quite different from the shade i picked up last week:

the shade is called 'blush on ' and is a more pinky-purply shade/the range i feel most comfortable with.
overall, these lipcolors are pretty amazing, with fantastic staying power & great pigmentation.
they are a bit drying though, so i like to moisturize my lips in the morning before i apply.
i also make sure to apply either the balm included or something like carmex, throughout the day.
thank you to katie for telling me about these - i think i'm in love & a collection has started!
