Bobbing for Baubles

Hey Everyone! I am going to make this a quick one because my neck is killing me. I have the therapatch thingy that I bought for my chest to loosen the congestion on my neck/shoulder area right now. I think between coughing so much (yes, still coughing) and carrying the groceries in my right hand I tweaked my neck. Does it ever end? Geez. So of course I have a neck/headache right now and a cough which is not helping. I am highly accident prone.

So today I have for you Essie Bobbing for Baubles from the 2011 Winter Cocktail collection. I loved this dark dusky navy color and it was one of two I picked up from the collection. 

This was two coats. It is a gorgeous color and I love how it looks dusty and has a gray tone to it. It is very shiny too.

As always my cuticles are parched in these photos. I am trying to get more diligent with my moisturizing of the cuticles.

I love how deep this color looks.

I had a lot of tip wear and some chips with this mani but it was when I was first trying the Cult Nails base and top coat out. I am not sure why but it was giving me some issues the first few manis and I was getting chips really quickly.

I also got some shimmer on my pinky nail so please ignore that the polish definitely should not have any shimmer in it.

Ok now it is over to the couch with me.

That's all for now :)


  1. Very nice color! I didn't get this one but got School of Hard Rocks and Cocktail Bling (wearing it right now)instead. I wonder how it compares to my Color Club Gossip Column.

    1. I think the other one I got was School of Hard Rocks. I was having a hard time chosing between it and Cocktail Bling and just grabbed one and ran lol ok wait, that sounds bad, I PAID for it! I don't have that Color Club but it looks like Baubles is darker and leans more gray.

  2. Hope you're feeling better today! I think it's a bad sign that I can't recall what I got anything from this collection--surely I bought some of them. :)

    1. Aww thanks Karen! My neck was killing me today but it getting better tonight. LOL yes, I don't think it is a good sign that you can't remember which ones you bought. I can't remember the other one I bought though, I know I got two I just don't know which two. We are in the same boat lol


Wow, it has taken me a year to figure out how to write this here! I love comments! I read them all and try to respond as quickly as I can. Thank you for reading and commenting!
