Monday Blues: Blurple Plaid Nails

Hello my lovelies! Another week starts today and all I want is warm weather. We've had a very cold week, which was quite depressing because I'm so not ready for fall. Even though I'm a December baby I enjoy the summer and hate the cold. One thing I do like about fall is the fashion. I've noticed that the plaid pattern is really in this year and I love it. I tried to create my version of plaid nails and here's how it came out.

I started with one coat of a-england Dancing with Nureyev and topped it off with some Seche Vite to make it dry faster. After it was dry I used striping tape to mask some intersecting lines and then applied a coat of Essie No More Film on top. I immediately removed the tape and finished everything with another coat of Seche Vite.

It's the first time I use this Essie polish and I must say that I love it. It's a dark blurple creme, just on the border between blue and purple. It's very similar to my beloved China Glaze Queen B and it's also a one coater, which is great. Somehow I don't mind having a dupe for Queen B in my collection. I know I'm gonna get plenty of use out of these polishes.

Needless to say that I really enjoyed wearing this manicure. I'm so happy with the way it came out and the perfect match between these two polishes. I hope you like my interpretation for plaid nails. And don't forget that you can see more blue nails by clicking the links below.

Have a great week!


  1. Absolut superbe! Ce rau imi pare ca nu le-am vazut live. Combinatia de culori e minunata :) Sa nu-mi spui ca le-ai facut pe ambele maini :))

  2. These plaid nails turned out great! I haven't done a plaid design yet so I might have to give this a try.

  3. Foarte frumoasa este combinatia de culori si imi place efectul crem al ojei essie!

  4. I just realized- try to say Blurple Plaid a few times fast. Impossible!
