Essie Getting Groovy nail polish for winter

Essie Getting Groovy is part of Essie’s winter nail polish collection. This beautiful, sparkling gold color is ideal for  brightening up a dreary winter day, or for celebrating during the holiday season. Love it!

The golden hue of Getting Groovy by Essie is a festive, sparkling hue. The polish itself is foil-like; it doesn’t streak at all, which is a huge plus! It applies evenly, with proper saturation in two coats. I tested out Essie Getting Groovy nail polish with one base coat, and two coats of color; no top coat. It lasted a full week before my nails grew and I needed to change it. This is a great nail polish!

Metallic nail polishes are a huge trend right now, and well into 2017. This makes Getting Groovy by Essie a fabulous nail polish to invest in. The golden hue acts like a neutral, making it easy to wear with any color palette. Since it is a sparkling polish, it is also perfect for celebrating the holidays, and ringing in the new year! Love!

You can find Essie Getting Groovy nail polish online here, or as part of a mini coffret online here.

Wondering how to wear a sequin jacket during the day for a casual event? Or maybe you have a casual party on New Years Eve and are wondering how to style a sequin jacket for New Years Eve? Well I struggled with these questions too!

I have an all-black outfit I planned to wear with this sequin jacket from Tart Collections. When the jacket arrived, I quickly went to my closet to try the outfit on together, only to find my weight gain sized me out of my black outfit! The shame! So then I decided I had to find a way to style this sequin jacket for my upcoming holiday parties. Plus, I needed a casual New Years Eve outfit idea, so this sequin jacket would be perfect!

Pairing this Tart Collections sequin jacket with loose, distressed, straight-leg jeans worked out perfectly! I love the edgy-glam look for a casual New Years Eve party, or any daytime activity. This is a great girl’s brunch outfit idea too! For New Years Eve, I plan to wear this exact outfit but I will switch out the daytime handbag for this cute little number by Valentino. You can see it styled here.

Tart Collections has so many fabulous and festive pieces for New Years; as well as everyday wear. You can’t go wrong with a Tart Collection piece! Plus, they are based right here in the San Francisco Bay Area, so their style is exactly how we dress. Love that!
