NOTD - Essie Bobbing For Baubles revisited!

I am getting oozed by all the light-hearted spring nail polish colors I have been seeing lately, but for some reason, I can't bring myself to paint them on my tips, just yet.
Hence the revisitation on Essie Bobbing For Baubles. ;)


Essie Bobbing for Baubles





Maybe I am on a blue kick.
Or let's just say I chopped my nails short and dark colors like this is the best choice.

I will feature some spring color in my next NOTD post.
Promise. :)

  1. I love blue on nails :) And yeah, I haven't been able to get into the spring nails yet, either. I've got matte black glitter on right now! Haha.

  2. Wheee this looks SO nice on you! I don't think I can do blue because I'm so warm-toned, but on you this color is puuuuurfect!

    Gorgeous color! I have tried blue but since I don't have steady hands, they turn out to be quite messy and took me a long time in fixing my mistakes.

    Wow this is such a nice shade! Very sophisticated.
    By the way, I bought some elf customizable eye palettes--the one that you mentioned in a previous post. Omg, I love them! I put my MAC and some UD eyeshadows in the palettes. I probably wouldn't have even given them a try if it weren't for you. so THANK YOU! =)

    Ah, this is such a unique colour! I really love it!

  11. Oh, this is different! I think Navy fits in well with a clean nautical theme which is also spring!

  12. I actually like thise color A LOT - I know it is spring and mints and nudes are back but somehow I keep coming back to those dark tones.

    Hope you had a great weekend my dear and that all is well, I know I haven't stopped by in a while!

    to your next nail post :)

  17. I've been on some kind of blue obsession lately, too. I'm trying not to wear too much blue or else it'll be really obvious in the blog! LOVE this shade though. So pretty!

    Hi lena, this colour is beautiful but do you have a nail clean up tutorial somewhere? My nails do not look as perfect as yours. Send me the blog link if you did one before! Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  19. I love the color! Your nails always look so shiny! Is it the polish or a top coat..?

    ReplyDelete
  20. i have this too! it's gorgeous. i think i've only used it once tho lol i own way too much np!!

    ReplyDelete
  21. haha yes, when my nails are shorter I definitely start liking my darker colours! or the unusual colours, because they look cuter on shorter nails. I love blue too- there's just so many gorgeous shades and there's always something for every seasons and outfit.

    ReplyDelete
  22. a few years ago, i only wore black or nude. then i transitioned to grays, and finally colors, lol. but this is a gorgeous color and would be a great alternative to black.

    [oomph.]

    ReplyDelete
  23. there is very complex about this blue.
    i think this would be nice alternative for black, too! :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. my nails grow really fast, so i usually follow dark-medium-light color steps as my nails get longer. lol
    i can't wait to wear lighter blues in the coming season! :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. hahaha!
    yeah..there are so many neglected colors in my nail polish box.
    we should make efforts to have them in rotation somehow! ;p

    ReplyDelete
  26. thank you, Banny :)
    essie creme shades are usually quite shiny, but i think it is the topcoat.
    i used seche vite. :)

  27. hey Naomi :)
    i don't have any tutorial for nail clean up. i did post some general nail care tips before. i will bring the link to your blog if it helps any. :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. lol
    i am glad i am not the only one! :D
    i like this color alot, really! funny i wasn't so crazy about it when it first came out.
    this one doesn't stain as much as other blue colors, which is a nice bonus.

    ReplyDelete
  29. thank you, Debi!
    "awesome" is the right word for this! :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. yup. i used it on the cargo makeup set plus i spent even more on the new skincare items. lol
    i think i am pretty good at painting nails. lol. problem is my skill only works on my own nails. my friends and sister complain about it. lolz

    ReplyDelete
  31. thank you.
    there are good amount of grey and even green thrown in this color, which makes it so complex and beautiful, imho. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  32. hi Thu!
    hope you are doing well. ;)
    it is so warm and nice in the nyc, i might just get out of this "blues", but it is a cool color, right? ;p

    ReplyDelete
  33. i agree! this is a different blue!
    i see grey and green in this as well.
    it might have been okay if essie had introduced this in summer. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  34. really? thanks! i am glad. ;D

    ReplyDelete
  35. thank you, Eva :)

    i am so glad you like the elf palettes! :D
    i am not very good with coordinating colors from individual pots..so this works for me great as well. :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. thank you, Katherine! :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. thanks!
    usually taking a shower after a couple hours seem to work for cleaning up. ;)
    blue colors are tricky since they tend to stain cuticles a lot, though.

    ReplyDelete
  38. this is your kind of color. we both know it! :p

    ReplyDelete
  39. awww Jackie, thank you! :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. thank you, Sunny!
    i have to disagree with you, though. i think this color would look awesome on you as well!
    it is not a single toned blue..green and grey are in this color, too. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  41. lol
    thanks, Larie!
    i am glad i am not this only one.
    my coloring is almost winter..so this spring trends are hard for me to cope with! ;p

    ReplyDelete
  42. Pretty colour! I really love your nails! It's so neat and nicely shaped! >o<

    ReplyDelete
  43. very modern color! and I love special, dark nail polish with a nice gloss on top :)!!

    I failed to pick up Bobbing for Baubles when it came out. I kind of regret it now as I realise I don't really have a dark navy creme polish.
    Heh, I am happy to know that I have given you a lemming for Burning Black. My job here is done xD

    ReplyDelete
  46. burning black is a such a unique color and it looks really great on you! :)

    good thing is that bobbing for baubles is not an LE, you can still get it. i think it even is avail in retail bottle. ;)
    (see? enable for enable! ^-^)

    ReplyDelete
  47. thank you, Penelope!
    i have many differenct blue shades but i think this is something special. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  48. thank you. :)
    this is such a posh but edgy color. i love it!

    ReplyDelete
  49. thanks Aki!
    your nails are gorgeous. i know it! :D

    ReplyDelete
  50. I'm normally not a big fan of dark colors, but this is really pretty! I think it's weird how dark polishes always look better on short nails for some reason.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I don't usually wear darks - this one looks lovely on you, Lena!

    ReplyDelete
  52. thanks, Rinny!
    i always think it's all about balance.
    sheer lighter colors do look better and longish nails.:)

    ReplyDelete
  53. The color is look glossy, I love it :D

    ReplyDelete
  54. thanks!
    it is one of my favorites. ;)
