Manicure - Essie Geranium
While I was gone from blogging I became quite a laquer head. To me, nail polish is a cheap thrill that helps satisfy my love of color. I live in a house of men and boys, so doing my nails is my little escape into girlyness.
I'm not a nail blogger. My application and photography skills are rudimentary at best. However, I find I'm often searching the interwebs looking for photos of readily available poishes from the main brands' core lines. Stuff the cool girls have had for ages. I also love seeing how the same polish looks different on different skin tones.
So with that caveat, I give you Essie Geranium on NC 20 skin tone. In my view it's not so much of an orange red as a yellow toned red. It's different from my other orange reds such as Essie Meet Me at Sunset, OPI Red Lights or American Apparel Poppy. It's super bright which I am loving for a breath of spring.
Check out some of my favorite nail bloggers: The Polishaholic, Scrangie, Ommorphia, All Laquered Up.
