Nail of the Day 10/13/11: Essie Lady Like
I think the name of this polish is spot on because it’s just that - lady like. I wore it to an interview I had yesterday, and it was the perfect complement to my outfit.
Essie definitely hit a home run with this mauve-y nude varnish. In the bottle it comes across as a soft mauve, but on the nails it transforms into a lovely nude color. Nude is a tough color to nail because it can sometimes create that dreaded “mannequin hands” effect. Lady Like has just enough of a pink undertone to prevent the dead look, and just enough taupe to keep it from looking too old lady-ish. To me, this polish is the definition of feminine chic in the most subtle way. Oh, and did I mention it’s almost completely opaque with just one coat? ‘Cause it is!
