Ellagee Mug and the Nail Art It Inspired

Press Sample

Good morning, dear readers! I am still trying to catch up on blog posts and swatching since returning to town a few days ago, and it feels like everything is going against me right now. I've got two sick littles at home, but I am determined to get some posts written and shared! Let's jump right in on today's post while I can!

I have shared several shades by Ellagee on my blog, but did you know that you can also get other products? Laura, the owner of the brand, has also created several cute designs that are printed on phone cases, mugs, totes, and clothing. I was sent to cutest coffee mug to share with you! Check it out!

This mug is so perfect for me! I love the complex swirled design of the polish bottles and the overall simplicity of the same design repeated but in a different colour. It's also a great mug because it easily holds 14 fluid ounces of coffee! It certainly puts my smaller coffee mugs to shame, but it still doesn't feel overly huge and uncomfortable to handle. If you are a coffee, tea, hot chocolate or whatever you darn well what drinker, you're going to want this! After all, if you visit this blog, you must be a fan of polish too, right?

This mug and other products can be purchased from the Ellagee website here.

You didn't think I would stop there, right? I was inspired to create a nail art look to match my fabulous mug. Check it out!

My nails are all about Ellagee! I used the following shades to create this look.
Glimmering Diamond (base colour)
When Everyone's Super (orange holo, freehand)
Crushed Pink Tourmaline (pink glitter)
Crushed Aquamarine (blue glitter)
Crushed Peridot (green glitter)
Shake a Poor Sinner's Hand (purple stamped butterflies)

I had originally planned to stamp a swirl design on my nails in addition to the butterflies, but it was really difficult to see the orange on the white background. I wanted it to pop a little more so I went freehand. Mad props to those that do freehand work! It gives my nails character. ;)

All these products are available for purchase from Ellagee here.

Until next time, dear readers, have a wonderful day!
