Manicure Monday: Bahama Mama

Happy December 1st, everyone!

How was everyone’s Thanksgiving and time off? For me, it was really nice to slow down and be surrounded by my loved ones. I know I can never say it enough, but I feel truly blessed to have such a wonderful support system and the basic necessities in my life. So if you are one of my family members, friends, or a fan reading this right now, thank you for all that you do. I am thankful for you all, every single day. I also hope the remainder of the year is filled with extra laughs and love for you. 

I decided over the Thanksgiving holiday that Manicure Monday would be resuming back on the Crystal Avenue for the month of December. The first Manicure Monday for December is Essie’s Bahama Mama, a perfect plum color for the Fall season.


As many of you know, I am a big fan of Essie nail polishes and the color Bahama Mama has become a go to color for the Fall season. Bahama Mama is reminiscent of the colder nights, drinking a hot chocolate or tea in a warm, cozy sweater, just before bed. For the application process, I had to apply at least three coats to get Bahama Mama opaque on my nails. If you purchase Bahama Mama, the plumtastic color doesn’t dry as quickly as other nail varnishes, but a quick drying top coat like Seche Vite Fast Drying Top Coat, will certainly do the trick and keep Bahama Mama on your nails longer.

Have you guys tried Bahama Mama? I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below. Also please do come back tomorrow for another fashion post! See you back on the Crystal Avenue then.
