New Blog Alert: Lorraine Nails, Thank you, and a recent discovery (you probably knew this)

Hi guys,

First off, I would like to thank each and every one of you who have come across my blog and followed it. I honestly can say it means the world to me. If you have any friends who love nail blogs share my link with every possible person. And I know that 32 may not be many to some people but considering I have only been blogging for a total of 11 days that's HUGE (to me at least). And since I only started 11 days ago, I realize how hard it is to sometimes get your name out there and get people to read it so if any of you have a new blog that needs some help getting a few readers I am MORE than happy to put a quick post up so just shoot me an e-mail, or better yet comment because I LOVE reading comments and if you look I almost always reply on the comments.

okay so after all that rambling....

There is another blog that always has cool swatches and fun stuff to look at-Lorraine Nails I want you to just go look, comment and follow the blog because she has really nice swatches and more. Oh and to you new bloggers she is VERY friendly and I am sure she would post your blog up there to get some readers (as she did for me), so if she does make sure to post about her-you know... give back haha

Have you guys ever really wanted an Essie color but it's not in season any more or something? Well I have GREAT news (some of you may know this), I was on a blog the other night and she talked about this thing on Essie called "bye buy colors" where you could find old colors like dominica green(previously not any more sorry to get your hopes up), or other colors you may be looking for. I searched and for some reason always over looked it but I realized that if you just go to the left side bar and click nail colors it has a list of colors and at the bottom the last icon says bye buy colors. I clicked on it and you basically choose a color, comment and send an email to the company. I thought this would be useless but I gave it a try- I AM STILL IN UTTER SHOCK-they replied within two days and it was honestly very personal and nice, but I do have to say that I replied again and they never responded but who knows maybe the system doesn't work like that. So a few days I was at one of my favorite dustys picking up some colors and I asked about essie because that is the biggest line they sell there and the lady started to talk to me about how long she had been selling the brand and how familiar she had gotten and GET THIS... Apparently Essie just got sold for millions, and millions of dollars (duh, most of us knew that) BUT Essie's sister who works for the company personally called the owner to tell her and say how nice business had been with them etc. So I decided I would see how nice Essie really was and call them I picked up my Essie bottle and undid the little tag at the bottom and found the 1-800 number on the bottom of the Essie bottle. I called and asked for a person to speak to-... shockingly enough they actually put me with an operator who was so sweet, they even said that they honestly looked in their records for any starry starry night or dominica green bottles but there were none for sale under their domain and they told me similar colors and I could call back with any questions. I now love Essie even more than before (thats hard). So if you are ever having trouble with Essie I highly recommend you give 'em a call or shoot them an email, you won't be disappointed. If you have had any experience with them please comment below. *Obviously this wasn't coursed by the company because I am a SUPER small blog with out disclosure policy [so far] and they really wouldn't give a fly about it-YET- so no worries this was all COMPLETELY true*

okay well sorry for that endless rambling but I am working on some more posts and I have this one mani I have been dying to post-now if only I could find that sim card with the pictures :/


  1. I don't think it was a ramble at all. This is the type of info we should share amongst us and anyone else that cares to read our blogs.

    I do hope you run across your long-lost colors. It would be nice if we knew ahead of time if something was going to be discontinued so we could stock up!

    Have you checked out my blog? I have a giveaway going on and it ends this Sunday night!!!

  2. Congrats on your new blog and followers :) i have also started a blog recently, if you have a chance please check it out :

    I can't wait for more swatches!!

    (shoutout?) :)

  4. Congrats on the followings and keep up the good work! I too have started a new blog and I am having fun sharing my passion for nails.
