things I love | essie haute in the heat

those of you who follow on instagram would have seen this shot, but I wanted to do a little shout out on the blog, because I’m loving the color, and I couldn’t be more surprised. I tend to go for barely there nudes and neutrals; moody, dark greys and blues; and a red or coral here and there. pink is usually not on my tips. in fact, I own only two other pink shades in my stash, and they end up on my toes 99% of the time. but I saw this color on the shelf at target, and I found myself taking it home. I still wasn’t convinced that I liked it even as I was applying, but when it all dried and set, it won me over. it leans more towards a warm, tame reddish-pink in the shade or out of direct sunlight, but as you can see, it’s this lovely raspberry in the light. if the color wasn’t lovely enough, the formula is fantastic – this was almost perfect at one coat and spot-on at two coats.

james and I did some paint sampling the day before I snapped the picture, so my nails are looking a little worse for wear, but at least they’re pretty, right? ;)
