One Way To Beat The Winter Blues

I was in CVS yesterday browsing the cosmetics area for lip gloss and discovered an enormous Essie nail polish section! Huh?! Was I the last to know Essie went commercial?

Apparently I was. My go-to gal Nicole told me Essie was acquired by L’Oreal last year and are rolling out new collections for the mass market. They are even at Walmart now.

As I browsed I noticed this gorgeous coral color (Cute As A Button) that immediately reminded me of springtime.

I’ll admit it, at this point in the winter I get pretty down. I’m done with the cold, the awful weather and lack of sunshine, everything seems on hold, life is sadly bleak. So I really try to do whatever I can to conjure images of nice weather and the feeling of positivity. And if I can find it in a bottle of nail polish, well that’s what I’m going to do.


So I bought Cute As A Button. I actually bought Spaghetti Strap too (wedding polish?). I couldn’t wait to get home and see how it looked. There’s something about a nice manicure that always makes me feel better too. A little shinier and more chic. Whatever works!


I love this color. I never wear anything but peaches and nudes for manicures but I think this is about to change. This is the perfect pop of color. Every time I look down I feel a little lighter and a little springier. Exactly what I was going for!
