Makeup Monday - Essie Nail Polish

February 17, 2014

Welcome to Makeup Monday on Julie's Lifestyle.  Each Monday I will post about a certain type of makeup, nail polish, face or hair product etc.  It will be a fun place to come visit about anything to do with beauty.  

Week 7 - Essie Nail Polish

Welcome friends to another fun week of Makeup Monday.  We are already on week 7 of the series  and today I'm going to talk about Essie Nail Polish.  My favorite color is called Ballet Slippers and I have been wearing this color for years.  This is the description of the polish:  An eternal manicurist and fashion stylist favorite, essie's classic pale pink polish is graced with a subtle, sheer finish.  This beloved award winning essential is an iconic color for all seasons. 

I also use for the first coat of polish this bottle of millionails.  It's a treatment that nourishes the nails with a fiber shield and iron strength to help resist peeling and splitting for visibly stronger nails.  

I usually wear this polish in the spring and darker colors in the winter.  Can you tell that I'm wishing it was spring yet?  Have you tried this nail polish yet?  What is your favorite color?

Thanks for stopping by Makeup Monday and please come back next week.

  2. Julie, I have never worn this color (I don't love the smell of any nail polish), but I know that this is a big favorite. I have seen my sisters and nieces wear it and just about every bride I know! I guess you are in good company with your love for Ballet Slippers!
