My wedding set is currently at the jewelers being repaired so I was in the need of a fill in, and what’s better than a design fit for a Duchess! ¬†Random Snapple fact, Duchess is my favorite royalty title, shout out to Krista in 10th grade for winning that title at Snow Ball ūüėČ ¬†Anyways… This¬†Sterling Silver CZ Triplet Ring was inspired by that Meghan Markle Sparkle so for this week, its my place holder.

Obiv my sterling silver version is a little different as hers is a gold band, and CZ’s instead of her ¬†beautiful, and I’m sure flawless, diamonds, but at $34.99 I ain’t mad at it. ¬†It gives a lot of sparkle, a lot of Meghan Markle Sparkle! ¬†This weeks mani also #nailedit with the Avon Gel Finish Nail Polish in Mint To Be.

I’m REALLY loving this pastel polish shade. ¬†I def feel it pulls more robin’s egg blue than mint but its a great spring shade and pairs really well with all the blues I’ve been wearing lately. ¬†I’ve also been a little obsessed with all things engagement/wedding, like getting an album done from mine, and getting those dumb disposable cameras finally taken care of, and then one of my fav you tubers shared her engagement which made me have all the feels, and a friend is engaged, and I’ve been binging Married At First Sight… I guess its just that spring fever!

You can shop my favorite polish, these Gel Finish polishes online at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger and be sure to get your own Meghan Markle Sparkle to go along with it! ¬†You know I’ve been loving these fine jewelry releases from Avon this past year and this one takes the cake, the wedding cake! ¬†Plus, it would be cute to wear these two (ring & polish) if you’re doing the circuit of showers, weddings, events and parties or even Easter!

About last night… screw the Oscars, I was at Justin Timberlake’s Man Of The Woods Tour! In pure JT form, the show was nothing short of show stopper. ¬†I really dig how themed out this MOTW release is, from his marketing images, to his logo (LOVE the logo!), to the tour set and beyond. ¬†We all know I love a good theme. ¬†I was inspired to do a little Man Of The Woods Mani for his Sacramento show, which is today’s Mani Monday.

Mixed mani with deep charcoal, muddy gray shades from Julep, and a beige and orange from OPI with a little nail art on my middle as an ode to the album cover. ¬† I’m definitely digging it.

JT on a Sunday Funday definitely makes a Monday a little bit better, well, besides the late night and sore feet ūüėČ ¬†To recap those JT feels I took the setlist and made a little Spotify playlist and phone highlights on repeat!

Matte Sparkle for the New Year

Matte Sparkle for the New Year

My New Years Eve mani has become my new year mani. While going through my nail polish stash I found these super sparkly polishes from Julep, which are actually a matte.  Making this mani something a little different and with all the glitter I was already wearing, matte seemed a good way to go.

New Year New Flowers ;)

These also look WAY better in person! I couldn’t capture the sparkle, so take my word for it. ¬†I was kinda hesitant to give up wearing red on my nails but this purple polish is making it easy to transition to the new year. ¬†Plus, first post always has to be a new mani post right!?

Nailed It: Birthday Mani!

It’s Mani Monday AND Birthday Week sooooo Birthday Mani it is!

Nailed It:  Birthday Mani!

Nailed It: Birthday Mani!

I’m a summer baby so I wanted a summer mani but also a little party so I went with a bright orange with gold glitter accents. ¬†I did go gel… which is rare for me. ¬†Even having a professional mani is rare for me but #birthdayweektreats! ¬†Well actually pre-birthday week treats. I had them done last week, so I knew I needed to last a week, so what lasts? ¬†Gel. ¬†What ruins my nails? ¬†Gel. ¬†It’s a love hate relationship. ¬†I know once I soak these off those long talons will soon break. ¬†I have ridged nails so all the buffing and filing them down really removes a lot of their strength. ¬†But until then I’m sporting birthday nails!

Orange and Gold Glitter Gel

I know the glitter gel is¬†Daisy Gel Polish Legendary Diamond 467 but I didn’t take note of the orange. ¬†I know it was the brand DND and in the 400’s so it might of been Pastel Orange but either way I’m digging it for a late summer birthday mani!

Mani Monday – June

Mani Monday:  June

Mani Monday: June

How are we already 11 days through June!?! ¬†June is one of the best summer months here in Nor Cal because its not mega hot yet, and everyone is excited and not complaining about it being super hot. ¬†I personally love it being super mega hot but I know I’m in the minority. ¬†You know what else is super mega hot? ¬†These Jamberry June Style Box nail wraps.

I’m digging the blue and white design which will work really well into red white and blue for Week O’Nautical leading into the 4th. ¬†I’m definitley trying to use more of my Jamberry Nail Wraps because I have so many pretty designs.

Another thing that is super mega hot, is this sterling silver ring with simulated opal from Avon’s fine jewelry collection. ¬†I seriously have been mega super obsessed with the fine jewelry options. ¬†I got a few pieces that I showcased here already (see more here and my gold piece here). ¬†There are a few more pieces on the want list to mix and match and stack. ¬†The Avon sterling silver opal collection launches Wednesday at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger You can shop Jamberry nail wraps here.

Week O’Nautical – Seaglass Shimmers

The long weekend may be over, but Week O’Nautical isn’t! Well, at least on here. I intended to get more up but between the sickness and a busy weekend I didn’t. However, my Week O’Nautical mani was sooo pretty I had to keep it going. How fitting for a nautical influenced mani to be from the new Essie Seaglass Shimmers collection.

Essie Seaglass Shimmers Collection – via essie.com

“Seaglass Shimmers collection 2018: These nail polish shades bring to life the mystical underwater experience with a unique shimmer finish. The¬†world is your oyster¬†so let‚Äôs explore the ocean floor and look for precious items washed up on shore.¬†Don‚Äôt be salty¬†that this aquatic adventure will only be¬†you, me & the sea.¬† As you look along the¬†coral coast¬†you will become captivated by the luminous hues. the¬†high tides & dives¬†will show you the iridescent elements of nature ‚Äď from pearls¬†at sea level¬†to sea glass on shore, you will be digging for more! “

Essie always nails the naming – via essie.com

Don’t Be Salty and Coral Coast had to come home with me during a target run. ¬†I also picked up Ballet Slippers which served as a nice base coat to really let these shimmers shine.

These pictures do not do these polishes justice. ¬†They’re pearlescent sparkly just like a shell and glimmer and shimmer. ¬†I can’t even tell you how obsessed I am. ¬†My Memorial Day Mani not only was fit for a mermaid, but showed off a bit of that golden glow I got over the long weekend. ¬†You can shop Essie at your local drug stores or beauty stores.

Nailed It: Jamberry Night Sky

20180302_172151.jpg

Mani Monday and I finally feel human again. I had bare nails for weeks, so finally getting a pedi and busting out a Jamberry wrap on the mani, all is right in the world once again!

I felt like doing nail wraps and these Night Sky wraps were calling my name! Sparkly mixed mani in cool icy tones, sign me up!

We have been having a cold spell in Nor Cal so these icy tones are oh so needed. And so is this scarf that’s my back drop. Its actually the signature print from the mark. Rebel Ice collection. Fun fact: If you bought the bath and body line its the print on the packaging!

I also just got these sterling silver rings in from Avon, and thought the complimented the wraps so well! Yes, Avon does have a line of fine jewelry, yes these rings are new and available, yes they include genuine stones, and yes you need them! The fine jewelry also starts at a size 5! I am wearing the Classic Peak Band (sale price $16.99) stacked with the Blue Topaz with Cluster Halo ring (sale price $34.99).

You can shop my rings and check out Avon’s fine jewelry new arrivals at my eBoutique. Message me if your interested in Jamberry nail wraps! I’m always looking for someone to go halfsies ūüėČ

Lip Of The Week: Avon True Color Glazewear Lip Gloss in Darling Pink

You know what I’ve been loving lately? ¬†Lip Gloss! ¬†“Taking it back to the old school, cuz I’m an old fool who’s so cool…” ¬†(10 points if you can name that song) ¬†…Anyways, Avon Glazewear has me loving lip gloss again. ¬†I am just LOVING this formula. ¬†It’s super comfortable to wear, not too sticky, moisturizing and great color pay off! ¬†I’m wearing Avon True Color Glazewear in Darling Pink, which is just a perfect everyday lip color. ¬†Especially perfect for spring.

Darling Pink is actually a cream shade, so its pretty opaque for a gloss. ¬†In the sun shots you can see it has just a *touch* of shimmer that looks really stunning on. ¬†I never would of bought this on my own, for no reason other than that I’m just “into lipsticks now.” ¬†This Glazewear came as part of a set, the¬†Spring Pink Delights Collection 7-Piece Set actually. ¬†After getting a Glazewear in my Savana Beauty Set (see here) and this one I’m officially on the gloss train. ¬†That’s why I love sets, you get to try something you normally wouldn’t of picked out and sometimes its a grand slam, like this time. ¬†The whole set is actually a grand slam!

Spring Pink Delights Collection 7-Piece Set

Spring Pink Delights Collection 7-Piece Set

Valued at $93 this Spring Pink Delights Collection set is ONLY $34.99! ¬†I got it because I wanted the makeup bag, being a little larger I knew it would be great for traveling to fit larger items like foundation, full size hair products, etc. ¬†Additionally, I needed more Skin So Soft oil and the Soft and Sensual scent is my favorite. ¬†So for the cost of the SSS oil and the bag, I got a full size perfume, polish, lipgloss, shower gel and lotion! ¬†Lucky for me I was trying out three new products (perfume, polish and gloss) and all of which I’m now using on the daily and loving! ¬†Haiku Kyoto Flower is another one I’m kicking myself for not getting before now!

If you haven’t figured it out, I love this set. ¬†I think its an EXCELLENT value and I suggest trying a few new products. ¬†I also think this would make a perfect Easter gift, basically everything you need to fill a basket outside of some candy. ¬†I have a feeling this guy might sell out, so grab yours at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger ¬†and maybe pick up a few more Glazewears at 2 for $10!
