NOTD - Essie Sand of a Beach

Longer nails lend themselves extremely well to nude shades. If I tried now to paint my nails a garish green or bright red, they may look a little 'talon' like, a bit witch-y. Ok, so they are not mega long, but it's more a state of mind than a state of nail...

Essie Sand of a Beach

I've decided to re-embrace my nude collection, starting here with Essie Sand of a Beach, possibly the most stunning colour I possess. It's like the inside of a shell, that's pretty much the best way to describe it, with all of it's subtle nuances and pearly sheen.

 In some lights it shines pink, in others mauve, and there are brown/beige tones which stop it from being too cutesy.

It's not an opaque shade, but that is it's charm. This is two coats with Good to Go topcoat. You could build up to 3 but I do not think this would enhance the look. It's beauty is in it's sheerness.

The perfect wedding colour for brides who want 'classic with a twist'. In fact this is the perfect everything colour.

Can you tell I like it a bit?
