I wasn’t always a girl who cared much about nails, but as I’ve grown into a woman, I am constantly reminded of the importance of looking well-groomed. Great nails go along with the package and are often one of the first four things people notice along with your hair, skin and choice of ensemble.
Essie is my favorite nail lacquer brand. Though I have never been one to say no to Chanel or YSL, Essie consistently puts out fun and interesting colors that give me hundreds of options. The brand’s Fall 2011 collection is named “Carry On”, which is fitting since it is inspired by handbag styles of the 1940’s and 1950’s.
I am currently wearing the color, Case Study, on my nails which is a beautiful nude color from the collection. It literally goes with everything I wear and is a perfect shade no matter what the season. The collection in entirety is about sophistication and classic shades. The other colors are: Glamour Purse – a timeless khaki, Carry On – a rich wine, Power Clutch – a dark tea green, Lady Like – a rose pink and Very Structured – a warm rust. Definitely a great selection of hues to try for now and for Fall.
