I like nail polish, but I get impatient when it’s not perfect, so I usually save it for my toes. What can I say? I hate chips, and I type too much to keep a manicure perfect for more than two days.
But I digress…
While I’ll try an emerald green, a greige, a bright orange or a traditional red, I almost always reach for some shade of pink. And this season, there are some fantastic pinky hues on the market.
My favorite in this bunch is a tie. I love Essie Sure Shot for the deep jewel tones, but the melon-hued Trout Pout is also quite fantastic. Luckily, at less than $15 a bottle, I can have both.
Oh, and if you’ll remember, a few months ago yours truly won the Birchbox contest to design her own nail polish. So for all of you who took the time to vote for me (thanks again, by the way), the shade will be for sale at the end of this month. I’ll keep you posted on when, and I’ve been informed that I’ll have a few bottles to give away, so be on the lookout for a giveaway.
