I have to say, the Essie fall collection of limited shades is a great one this year. A variety of Japan-inspired polishes, there is a great range from pastel shades to bright pops of color.
Being the completely predictable beauty lover that I am, I of course picked up the classic red from the collection called Maki Me Happy.
A beautiful creamy shade, this red leans the tiniest bit purple and goes perfectly with this time of year. It isn’t too bright or punchy but subdued and classic.
I have been wearing it on my toes for the past two weeks and I almost wish it still was sandal weather as it looks so beautiful. There’s no doubt I will bust this out on my fingernails soon enough and carry it over into wintertime as well.
I know reds are a staple in every polish collection, but this is a color I wish was permanent, it is so classic and pretty. If you can get your hands on it, make sure to pick Maki Me Happy up. The quality and opacity is completely on par with the regular Essie line-up, so it is a pleasure to apply. With a quick-drying topcoat, this is a manicure (or pedicure) I can get done in minutes and happily wear for weeks on end.
