I’ve had a lifetime love affair with Essie nai l polish…when I think of the easiest way to make myself feel pretty, I put on my favorite gloss (Chanel Glossimer in #106  MYRIADE) and grab my Essie-du-jour and hop over to see Sam to get a pedicure.

In the summer, toe cleavage and show-stopping shades are on display 24/7. In the winter, however,  my toe polish acts as my covert, undercover sexy-weapon…just like my lingerie. Little secret nail-beds of sass…waiting to wow you.  What does she have on underneath?  When she slips off those Louboutins, will her toes match her soles? YES and I can assure you, it is Essie (and every shoe sales person in NY-Tri-state area can vouch for me).

In honor of tomorrow’s big celebration of love…let us all grab our favorite shade of crimson Essie polish, and paint the town red (or at least all of our digits).  With over two dozen scarlet hues to chose from, I have broken down a few of my faves…to help in all your phalange-finishing needs.
