Happy first day of Summer!!! I hope everyone takes some time to enjoy this time of year!
While summer is not my most favorite season - I prefer fall and winter - I'm glad it's hear because it means longer days, June gloom (a fun little weather phenomenon in Southern CA), and Friday's off at work! Win - win- win.
If you know me, you know that I love nail polish and easily paint by nails 3 to 4 times a week. And I love it. Really, I do.
And specifically, I love Essie. It's by far my favorite brand and their huge variety of colors is one of the primary reasons! They release a new line of colors every season and although I lean heavily toward fall like, neutral colors most of the time, the summer months are a perfect time to brighten things up!
Here's their latest Summer 2012 collection...
At Target the other day, I finally picked up my first polish of the collection - it's called Off the Shoulder and it's fantastic!
It's described as a "bold, hot pink" but with just enough boldness as to not be over the top (at least for this 32 year old.) It's such a fun, cheerful color...how can you not love it?
My other Essie favorites are Merino Cool...a gorgeous mulberry like color.
And Sew Psyched...a soft sage pewter like shade.
I get quite a few compliments when I wear these two shades so I wear them a lot! What about you?? Do you have a favorite brand or color? And by the way, this isn't a sponsored post - Essie has no idea who I am or just how much love them :-)
