Ever since I was a little girl I have loved playing around with nail polish. My obsession started when I was given a book full of nail design ideas as well as an assortment of “peel-off” nail polish; but once I realized that the peel-off polish came off within seconds I was onto the real stuff. I would have my friends over and we would spend hours painting each others nails, never satisfied with just one color.

Once this phase passed, I was onto Hard Candy nail polish; not necessarily because of the array of bright colors, but because of the trendy plastic rings that came with the bottle. You weren’t cool unless you were wearing atleast two of these rings.

Then something happened… I stopped wearing fun and ridiculous shades of nail polish.  All I seemed to be wearing was a couple of variations on bright red! BLASPHEMY. Thankfully, this boring phase only lasted a few years. While I’d like to think that I was the sole reason I started wearing bright colors again, I’m going to have to give props to my friend Claire who randomly started getting her nails airbrushed with wild designs in high school.

Now I can’t seem to get enough of brightly colored nails, and I know I’m not the only one. Pastel, neon, even hologram nails are popping up all over magazines and style blogs. Don’t get me wrong, I still enjoy a basic red or pink, but adding some turquoise or neon purple into the mix never hurt anyone!

Essie is definitely my favorite brand of nail polish. The color assortment is endless, it goes on smoothly, and is pretty much chip proof… unless you bite your nails like me. The summer collection comes out on June 1st and I can’t wait to try out some of the new colors.
