ella + mila stonehearted

Press Sample

Did you know that ella + mila is 17-free? Hear me out... free of Acetone, Animal-Derived Ingredients, Bisphenol-A, Camphor, Ethyl Tosylamide, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, Gluten, Glycol Ether of Series E (Gycol ethers derived from ethylene oxide), Nonylphenol Ethoxylate, Parabens, Phthalates (including DBP), Styrene, Sulfate, Toluene, Triphenyl Phosphate (TPHP/TPP), and Xylene. For some people, not having some of these ingredients make a huge difference in their ability to wear polish so I'm happy to share the information!

Today I have ella + mila stonehearted from the Desire collection. This is a neutral grey creme.

I've always been a fan of mint green creme polishes so today's ella + mila pistache made my heart happy. Even with my little nubbin nails, this color just slaps.

We were teased with one day of a "cold front" and then today? 98 degrees. Fall, what? So I decided to pull out ella + mila sweet tooth, a coral creme from the BonBon collection. 

cuccio I Reflect

Press Sample

I can't believe it's fall already. Today I have cuccio I Reflect from the Spring 2020 Imagine collection but I loved this polish so much I wore it for a solid week. This is listed as a chambray creme which is a gray-blue that is a lot like denim. I found this leaned more grey than blue for me.

Blogger officially changed their layout and I'm adjusting. It's hard to believe that it was summer 2009 when I was talking with my friend Jen about blogs. I finally started my blog on December 7, 2009 and it's been an amazing eleven years so far. 

cuccio Give It A Twirl

The grand finale in the cuccio Soire collection from Holiday 2019 is Give It A Twirl, a deep red shimmer. I wasn't sure if this would be metallic looking or satin looking but I was happy to have another red for the holidays.

cuccio Soiree Not Sorry

I'm in the final 3 of the cuccio Soiree Collection that was released last winter. Doesn't that seem like a million years ago? This is a firey red with teeny tiny rainbow reflective microglitter running throughout.

I forgot how much I like wearing polish. This pandemic has really changed my beauty routine from what I wear to how often I wear it. Today I pulled out cuccio Pop, Fizz, Clink! from the Soiree Collection - Winter 2019. This is a really unique metallic that has a gold and bronze mix look.

Pink Mask Delilah

You know I had to have a purple in my collection! I was really drawn to Pink Mask Delilah, a lilac creme and was hoping that this would really pop with a matte top coat.
