To spread the love, I wanted to share some of my favorite, attention-getting, compliment-worthy polish colors... Promise I am not writing about these compliments to brag - I am only using them to prove that these hues are THAT gorgeous. (They all happen to be Essie colors, but that doesn't mean there aren't other fabulous lines out there. Also, can you tell I love purple?)
1) Essie Splash of Grenadine
- My boss noticed my manicured nails and asked if the polish happened to be Splash of Grenadine. She knows her stuff!
- A random stranger in Starbucks told me she thought the polish was a pretty color as we waited for our drinks to be served up.
3) Essie Bermuda Shorts
- The Ann Taylor salesperson in Vegas said my toenail polish looked great with the shoes I was trying on (okay, so she was a salesperson, but I was already sold on the shoes! Originally $200, on sale for $50... and they were comfy too! Take a look at my great buy below...)
4) Essie Big Spender
A favorite of mine! Works well on fingers and toes, great for all seasons. I once had a pedicure that started with removing my old Big Spender polish and ended with a fresh new application of the color - the woman doing my pedi said, "You sure know what looks good on you!" Sometimes it pays to stick with what works! And it was featured in Allure when I first discovered this color, probably a couple years ago or so.
5) Essie Ballet Slippers
My default light-manicure color. I am a Ballet Slippers girl... I love the slightly opaque pale pink that gives my nails a clean look without being too sheer. Plus, it's a cute name.
What are your favorite polish colors? Let me know if you give any of my favorites a try! And why don't we all try to make someone else's day with a genuine, thoughtful compliment? It can mean more than you will ever know...
