Guest Post: Barb's Nail Polish Addction

Today's post is brought to you by Barb from Barb's Nail Polish Addiction.

Hi everyone! My name is Barb and I would like to thank Stephanie for this opportunity to guest post for her! Stephanie’s blog was one of the very first ones I started following when I got into nail polish and I bought my very first Zoya’s from her J Wishing her nothing but good luck and congratulations on her move!

Let’s get on to the good stuff, shall we? This is a dotticure I did using all Essie polishes! I’ve been feeling bright summery colors lately and it shows with this manicure. Here’s a shot of everything I used.

My base coat is Duri Rejuvacote. I’ve been using this for a while now and have seen a huge improvement in the strength of my nails. The base color is Essie “Lights” and I did the random dots using “Cascade Cool”, “Play Date”, “Bikini So Teeny”, and “Big Spender”. For my topcoat I used Out the Door.

I had no issues whatsoever with the polishes. “Lights” applied almost opaque in one coat and I used two just to even out a little bit of sheerness. Here’s a picture of it pre-dotted and pre-clean-up. I love how bright and vibrant this is

And here it is completed. Sorry for the kind of crappy pictures. These were all taken with my camera in the evening.

Well, that’s it! Thanks again to Stephanie!! I don’t have a blog but have seriously thought about starting one. For now I have a Facebook page for my nails ( and I always post them on Instagram (barb_mcgregor) too.

Thanks Barb! 

Happy Wednesday!
