Over the past few months, I’ve let my nail care slide. In the Before Times, I often did my own nails between monthly salon appointments. Unlike with makeup, which has to be reapplied every day, I felt that a manicure was an efficient way to feel put-together since I only had to do it about once a week.
I almost always used Essie’s Gel Couture — it lasted longer than regular polish (I usually got about a week with a touch-up here or there) and didn’t need a base coat. Essie also paired its lovely, rich colors with fun, catchy names.
Essie’s new Brilliant Brocades Collection might convince me to start doing my nails again — there are six lovely, winter-friendly colors ranging from the neutral High Sewciety to the nearly black Embossed Lady (pictured). Perhaps looking at my freshly painted nails while I type will be the mid-winter boost I need.
