Geometric Vibes with Cácee Timeless Lacquer

Press Sample

Today I have a new to me brand, Cácee (pronounced [kah•shay]), and I'm delighted to show it to you! I got to try out 10 colors and their base and top coats, and I have to say, I'm pretty darn impressed! I got to try a variety of finishes, from foil to glitter to creme and back, and they were all great!

To better showcase the colors I received, I'm going to split them up over a couple of posts and show off some nail art featuring them as well as the swatches! Today I am featuring Gray as You Go, Far & Oasis, and Bright Summers with some geometric nail art! I had the idea to use the colors to create radiating vibrations from the geometric shapes. It kind of reminds me of wifi or something. Good goooood good good vibrations!

It's tax day...April 18th. You know what that means? It means that I officially filed my taxes late last night. :D Nothing like procrastinating, right?! However, if you're more of a procrastinator than I am, you still officially have 3 hours and 36 minutes (according to my clock) to get those bad boys filed.

You wanna know what you can do with your return? You can totally invest in the last Jesse's Girl Julie G Spring trio, I mean, it's only $10 little dollars...practically free, and well worth it! For being neons, these are quite pigmented, and all covered in two coats without undies! :)

The third and final trio of Spring polishes includes Oh Em Gee, Cabana Boy, and Fierce & Fab, and just as a reminder, you can purchase your very own trio at

Today was toasty here in was reminiscent of Midwest summers, with a higher than usual humidity mixing with the heat to make a breezy sauna in the Vegas valley. The only bad things about today was that I had to do my damn taxes. The absolute worst. I've had my full-time job income portion done on my taxes, but had to do my other income, which totally f**king sucked. Why did I wait until the day before Tax Day, you ask? Good's because I'm dumb. :D

Anyway, I've got some more swatches and simple nail art comin' at you!

Today I have the second trio from Jesse's Girl Cosmetics, which includes Santorini, Rio De Janeiro, and Julie's Fave.

It was 90° here in Vegas today... for most of you that are reading this, that might mean SUMMER!!!, but here in Vegas, that simply means that Spring is upon us. The breezes were breezing, the sun was sunning, the birds were birding, and my nails were on point. Why? Because I was wearing the Jesse's Girl Julie G Spring polishes from the first trio!

Out of the three trios, which are only $10 at, by the way, SPRING1 is my favorite, and includes Dream in Pretty, Bikini, and Tropical! Since these are sold in threes, I wanted to showcase some simple nail art that you can do using only the colors in the trio!

Open Sesame!

I like my slightly weird and not normal nail art. You guys know this. I've had this idea rollin around in my brain for a bit, and figured it was about time I tried it. I have other similar ideas for an unofficial series, but you'll have to wait... hopefully refreshing the page eagerly. I miss you guys. I know I suck, and life gets in the way of me posting regularly lately. I try to consistently post on IG, but I'm going to make an extra effort to do so here as well.

Also, plan to see more beauty world and fashion posts, because those are things I'm super passionate about too! (especially shoes- drooooool)

Anyway, hopefully this mani plants the (sesame) seeds of a blog coming back to life and growing into what it was before, and much, much more. I miss my interactions with you guys... ReaderRita, Lainie, and you... yeah still there? I sure hope so...if not, come back, I miss ya! (tell your friends!)
