Who Says a Little Color Can’t Change Your Mood?

About a month and a half ago, I treated myself to a mani/pedi for my birthday weekend. For my fingers I went with my fallback, a pale pink gel, but for my toes I wanted a bit more color. Combing the polish selections can be daunting at times, especially if you’re not sure on the shade that you want. I had an idea, sort of. I knew that I wanted to stay in the pink family, and that I wanted it to be darker and brighter than what I had selected for my manicure. So, with that in mind, I resorted to my second favorite way to pick out a color: by the name. Some of my favorite colors I never would have tried if not for the name. Essie’s Little Brown Dress. Marc Jacob’s Gatsby. I picked up a few bottles and put them back, and then I spotted it, a beautiful plummy pink: Essie’s No Boundaries.

I left the salon completely satisfied with my decision, so much so that I ended up letting the color stay on my toes for far longer than it should have, then set out to purchase it. This past weekend, after laying out in the sun and getting a bit of color, I decided to give No Boundaries a try on my fingers and I’m so glad that I did. It has easily become my favorite pink polish of all time. Every time I look at it, it makes me smile. What’s your favorite polish of all time?
