Today is somewhat a rotten day for me... I found out a couple days ago about one of my colleague's death :((. She's been battling breast cancer for a few years now and finally the disease won :(( It's so hard to believe since she was known for her vitality and joy of life. She was the biggest goofball I've ever met!! And tonight is her wake :(. Damn damn cancer!!!
On a happier note today is another nail polish inspired happy hour! Today's drink is the New York cocktail, inspired by - you guessed it - Enchanted Polish "Hello New York"!!
Hello New York is gorgeous!!! I usually don't care for this type of color but this is certainly an exception! It's a green glitter that shifts to gold and sparkles, sparkles, sparkles like there's no tomorrow!! I layered 2 coats over a black base to bring out all the beauty!!
Hello New York is part of Enchanted Polish Big City Lights collection released earlier this year. It can be purchased at Harlow & Co. or Llarowe.
And now it's time for a delicious cocktail!!
