Matching Lips & Nails? Esprique Precious BE280 + Heart-y NOTD

I was browsing my iPhoto and came across some pics I was supposed to blog about but never got around to posting. So today I'm sharing swatches of my Beauty de Kose, ESPRIQUE PRECIOUS Dress On Glossy Rouge in BE 280, a lip gloss I purchased a long time ago, and my (unintended) matching NOTD! haha! thought it was too cute not to share. 
got this from for USD 25.83 + S&H

the flat paddle applicator has 2 sides: a fuzzy and a flat side
the fuzzy side is convenient to use and being flat makes it easier to apply color on the lips, I think the flat side is meant for thinner application of the gloss. (Please correct me if I'm wrong.)

The consistency and color reminds me of Canmake Nudy Glow lip gloss. Its a moderately pigmented gloss in a soft beige-coral-pink shade with very fine shimmers, neutral enough when worn to pair with a lot of colors like green, blue, brown, peach, beige... It feels a bit sticky, but that can always be fixed with blotting. :) I also find this gloss moisturizing, which is great! I'm going to wear this a lot this S/S season, paired with some Lunasol palettes I got recently.

Essie Shop till I drop, 2 coats + Arezia (Sasa brand) heart glitter polish ~which reminds me of Nicole by OPI x Justin Bieber Step 2 The Beat Of My Heart. (please note that this photo was taken last year.)

Its quite challenging taking those glitter hearts out of the bottle I tell you.

But its worth it. :)

  14. ohhh, both the gloss and your nails look so cute. I really like the easiness of the sparkly hearts to put in the manicure, so it might be do-able for a manicure-clutz like me too

  16. The Esprique is sucha nice pink color!

  17. The lipgloss and the nails colours are so sweet and cute! I’m more drawn to the nail colour actually. Seems like Essie is a good brand. Often see gorgeous nail colours from Essie by beauty bloggers. Happy V day!

  18. ahh the glitters in the last polish is pretty! Are they hard to remove?
