Light It Up Blue

Sunday, April 7, 2013

Hi All! Thought I’d give you a quick post for the weekend as I promised. If you follow me on Instagram you saw I took a little shopping trip to Ulta :) I picked up two more of the polishes to add to my Essie Madison Ave-Hue Collection (I already have Maximillian Strasse-Her and Go Ginza). If you haven’t looked at this collection yet, it’s to die for! The Queen of the Nail has a great review of the full collection here.

In honor of Autism Awareness Month, I put on Avenue Maintain. It’s a cornflower blue color that is just so beautiful- one of the prettiest blues in my collection. I used two coats just to make sure I didn't miss any spots, but there was full coverage after just one. The formula was the perfect consistency, not too thick. I also used OPI Base Coat and OPI Top Coat.

If you are not familiar with Autism, there is an amazing website you should visit. Autism Speaks is a world renowned organization that is leading research in the causes, prevention, and treatment of Autism Spectrum Disorders. It also happens to be the national philanthropy of my Panhellenic sisters, Alpha Xi Delta!

Check back on Friday for my post next week!

I have been drooling over this collection for a while and this cornflower blue is so perfect for spring! How shiney was the finish before topcoating? :)
