What is it about the neutral nail trend that we all love so much? No matter how happy pink makes you, how sexy your guy thinks red is, or how wonderfully dramatic it might feel to wear black polish, the past several seasons have been replete with browns, tans, and taupes. Don’t get me wrong; I truly do love this trend. But I’ve reached a point where I need a little naughty in my neutral. Enter the new favorite hue from Essie.
I arrived at Job #2 this evening about 30 minutes early. (Okay, backtrack. If writing is Job #1 and Tiffany’s is Job #2, then I arrived at Job #3 tonight 30 minutes early). Across the street from Job #3 is one of those amazing Duane Reades that actually cares about bringing its customers the best in beauty. Instead of the standard assortment of 20 or so Essie throwbacks, they offer a huge seasonal selection, plenty of classic faves, and a few randoms for fun. In the mood to paint my nails and dying for something totally different from what I’ve been sporting lately, I settled on a creamy, pale gray-chocolate infused with silver opalescence. Dead.
Called Mochacino, this funky hue is the perfect solution to your conundrum about how to play it safe but have just enough fun. And, as always, at $8 a pop, you can hardly beat a bottle of Essie. Happy weekend, my loves!
