Now, I know it seems as if I've been posting nothing but Nail of the Day pictures lately, but that's only because it's true.

I will have some other, more exciting posts coming soon, promise! But for now, let's take a peek into what I'm wearing on my nails today, shall we?

Essie French Affair (don't mind the sloppy-ness!)

This is the pink shade from Essie's French Affair collection, and the apparently the star of the show since the entire collection was named after it. When I first saw this color, I wasn't super excited about it. I normally don't like how baby pinks look on my nails at all. (Same goes for mint green, good thing I only had to buy 4 different bottles of it to figure that out.) But since this week at Rite Aid, Essie nail polishes are buy one, get one half off, and the only colors they had that I didn't were this, Mademoiselle and Ballet Slippers...I decided to get it. Hey, you can't pass up a deal like that! I also purchased Ballet Slippers because I've heard great things so I'm excited to try that one out on my toes next.

I have four out of the six shades that came out with French Affair. I first purchased Nice is Nice*, when I had a free salon nail polish with my rewards points at Ulta, then i ordered Topless & Barefoot from Ebay because I couldn't find it anywhere (and it's gorgeous so I can see why), I later bought Sand Tropez which is a really nice nudey-brown and now, French Affair! I really like how French affair has a purpley undertone, and I bet it would look even better on tanned skin. It reminds me of Viva Glam Gaga 1 in nail polish form. Needless to say, I'm loving this color for spring!

*I originally had my heart set on purchasing Lilacism with my rewards points from Ulta because it had been on my wish list forever. When I got there, Lilacism was sold out (isn't that always the case) but there was one bottle of Nice is Nice (the first "nice" is pronounced "Neece" as in, the city in France...would have never figured that out if no one had told me) and it looked very similar to Lilacism. I fell in love with it the first time I wore it and have since worn it four times on my nails, and that means a lot considering how many polishes I own. I think, even if I did own Lilacism, I'd still be reaching for Nice is Nice more often because it has a slightly more pink tone to it and I think that works well with my skin tone. Blah blah blah...the point of this ramble is that I'm slowly learning that even though you want a certain thing, trying new, unexpected things out sometimes works out best! :)

Anyway, I promise to have more interesting blog posts and videos posted soon! Thanks for reading!
