Essie Nail Polish. Enough said. Great product, outstanding colors with great coverage. There are definitely colors that are in season at any time of the year and then there are colors that are extremely specific to certain times of the year/day/life. (Will go on a rant about this eventually). I was at my nail salon on Monday and came across possibly the BEST option ever for Holiday Party Nails.
Now I’m not typically a sparkle nail polish girl – I’m not even a shimmer nail polish girl. I like straight glossy color. Done and done. Going in with expectations of doing a gold colored nail polish, I found Essie’s Hors d’oeuvres. I decided to layer this on top of a neutral gold color by OPI that I don’t even remember the name of now. Hors d’oeuvres is great because it is multidimensional. Has basically a gold/champagne speckled undertone with silver glitter that sits on top. So you’re getting gold/champagne/silver all in one polish.
This polish is over the top for my typical liking, however it was perfect for my holiday party last night. Or something else that’s fun like New Year’s Eve! I wore it with a black Skinny Skinny Ankle Jeans & an Olive Outbound Blazer both from Madewell all day.
Transitioned over to nighttime pretty well – being that the party was super casual at the Converse store in Soho. SoulCycle is awesome and had all employees make their own custom Converse (post to follow)! The holiday party was such a blast too – full of plenty of fun treats, photobooth, dance party, lots of champagne (too much!) and sneakers!
