Honeymoon Nails

For our honeymoon the Mister and I went to Fiji! We love to travel and between both of us, we've been lucky enough to cover most of the globe. We have a ritual that we use to pick our travel destinations. We both pick 3 locations, but you aren't allowed to pick somewhere you've been. For example, I can't pick Greece because I've been there, but he can because he hasn't. We then throw our collective 6 choices in a hat and draw. We each get a veto, but you don't have to use it up. Fiji was picked first this time, and neither of us vetoed, so FIJI Honeymoon it was. 

I think you all know me well enough to know that I totally took polishes on the honeymoon with me. For this trip I brought along Cirque's Kontiki collection. It was amazing to lounge on the porch of the bure and do my nails. So fun. I didn't take any fancy tools or anything, just me and the polish bottles. 

For the first look, I paired Midsummer Night (blue) and Thicker Than Water (teal) together. This look was spot on color wise for the ocean. You'd see gorgeous teal water in the shallow areas and then it would change suddenly to deep dark blue where the drop offs happened. It was crazy cool looking. 





After I took off the first look, I chose to just wear Dear Dahlia on it's own. I tell you, these polishes were made to be taken on tropical vacation. They were perfect and I got so many compliments on them! Also, do you guys love the hermit crabs? I thought they were so fun and they were everywhere!! I've never seen them in the wild before, just for sale in pet stores. 



What is your dream vacation destination? 

Enjoy & until next time, Amy Lee
*all polishes used in this post were purchased by me

  1. I hesitate to wear Thicker Than Water as full mani as I don't like how it looks against my skin tone. But your first look was absolutely awesome and I can't wait to try that!

    1. I hope you do try it out! I'd love to see it if you do. They really do pair well together.
