Chicago...and one Luxeffects !

Hello dear followers,

I'm really sorry I've been such a bad bloggers for the past weeks. I'm currently in Chicago after a week in Miami and a week in NYC. I've been in Chicago for 2 and half weeks now and I absolutely love the city. I'm taking some english classes in case you were wondering what the heck I am doing so far from home.

Today I went to an amazing beauty supply store.... They have a TONE of nail products, from treatments to nail polishes. They sell Essie, OPI, China Glaze, Color Club and some other brands. Oh and the best part about the store ? The prices !!! Essie and OPI nail polishes are only 4.75 dollars ! And they have all the new collections. Two words: Polish Heaven !

I've already been there once (like 2 weeks ago) and they got new products since then. Today, I was able to find the new Essie Luxeffects collection ! I only picked one of the 5 colors: Shine of the Times which is, from the swatches I've seen, pretty similar to Nubar - 2010 and its dupes.

On the next pictures I'm wearing two coats of OPI - Road House Blues (from my first trip to the store) and one coat of Essie - Shine of the Times. I really like this combo. Let me know if you like it too or if there another color I should try SotT on.

I'm sorry about the bad cleaning, I don't have all my cleaning stuff so it's a bit tricky to get a perfect mani.... (that's also one of the reasons why I've been so absent lately, I didn't want to put some bad swatches on the blog...but I can't wait to show you what this Luxeffects looks like!).

Pretty, huh ?! I'm sure my sister will be really happy about this new addition to our stash... Aren't you babe ?

If any one of you lives in Chicago, feel free to send me an email if you want to meet for coffee and, why not, go crazy in that amazing store (Btw, the address of the store is 4925 North Broadway Street).

I wish you all a very nice evening/morning and I'll talk to you soon.
