Last night I put on Bangle Jangle from the Essie Cocktail Bling winter collection:

It's a really lovely color, similar to Zoya Caitlin, but somewhat lighter.  I did have a little trouble with application; my brush was wonky and it applied like a pastel.  Still, I managed it in two coats.

This morning I decided to do a little stamping on top of it.  We're going to a concert again tonight, and I'm planning on wearing my blue and white Sencha, so I added white mesh topped with blue flowers:

Both these images are from Konad plate m57.  I did the white mesh with Konad Special White and the blue flowers with CND Midnight Sapphire.  The CND polish is great for stamping because it's so deeply pigmented.

I'm really happy with how this one turned out - it actually looks so much better in real life!


  1. Beautiful! I wasn't going to get Bangle Jangle because I was trying not to get another grayed out lavender/periwinkle...but I did anyway, and I'm glad!

  2. It's a beautiful color, isn't it? It wasn't at all what I was expecting it to be - I though it was going to be pinker, and I have a lot of pinkish lavenders, so I'm glad it's more of a periwinkle!

  3. I love the color and I need a new one, I think I just found it!

  4. They look great. I have to confess to just watching a Konad YouTube video about stamping as I had no idea how you did it. It looks such fun!

  5. Lovely color! I'm not that enamored with the collection as a whole, and the lavender doesn't seem very winter-ish to me, but I've always said that I'd wear a color because I want to, not the season.

  6. I agree, Pam - I like the collection, but it doesn't seem very winter-ish to me either.
