Mani of the Week- Essie Braziliant

Today is the first day of summer.  Just about everyone in my little corner of the world has been complaining about how this year is gonna be a scorcher. Not me. I love summer. I am a child of the sun. In my mind summer is linked with cute sandals, breezy, flowy tops, cold drinks and bright mani pedis…. Yeah baby!! 

 Essie was a brand I used to think of as just having a million shades of pink. So I was somewhat surprised when I started seeing the ads for bright reds, blues and oranges. I checked online  and was pleasantly surprised to find out that I was DEAD wrong. They have tons of colors(where have i been?), and to paraphrase the website…..Color is her obsession, and she is a fellow summer lover. So basically she’s my type of lady. I bought these to celebrate our bond.

From left to right

  1. Luxedo(not sure yet if i would use this one for summer..maybe as a pedi color)

  2. Haute as Hello

  3. Mucho Dinero

  4. Meet me at sunset

  5. Red Nouveau

  6. Braziliant 

I chose Braziliant as my mani for this week. I thought it was good fit to kick off the summer. I think most of these colors would be flattering on a wide range of skintones.
