September is always an interesting month- fall is right around the corner and yet it’s still warm enough for sandals and shorter clothing! At least around where I live. So while I love my pumpkin lattes and hayrides, I can’t quite get there mentally (or just won’t let myself) until later in the month or until the weather starts dropping (all fall-lovin’ peeps please don’t take it personally! I’ll be sippin my hot cider and wearing my boots right there with you in no time!).
So I was trying to pick my next mani shade out of my ridiculous stash of nail polish and imagine my surprise when I couldn’t quite find the right color to fit my between-seasons mindset. I’m putting away the bright coral, pastels and neons for now, but not quite ready for oxblood and other deeper shades quite yet. I was definitely in a “pink” mood but every pink I had was either too summery, too magenta, or too dark. So during my next trip to CVS I decided to hunt for my “fall pink” and found it in Essie’s Mrs. Always Right ($9.00)!
While not necessarily a super unique color, I didn’t have one like it yet and for me was that perfect summer-into-fall pink I was looking for!
I love this color because it’s not quite a regular mauve- it’s a little rosier and pinker. What’s also interesting is that this isn’t from a fall collection either- I believe it’s from Essie’s Spring 2016 Bridal collection. All of the colors in this collection look so pretty as you can see in this wonderful post I stumbled upon!
I used two coats of this nail polish topped with Essie’s Gel Setter Top Coat (9.99) which I have really liked using! To give you an all-around better idea about how it looks in different lighting:
I hope these pics give you a good idea of what this shade looks like! It dries relatively quickly and evenly (again I used two coats but probably would have been OK with just one), no streaks, and doesn’t seem to chip easily.
Have you found any great “between-summer-and-fall” nail colors? What nail polish colors are you rockin’ these days?
