I can't even tell you what a momentous day this is. IT IS MY FIRST MANICURE POST ACCIDENT. It was seriously killing me inside to have the same manicure for three weeks, but 1) I didn't have any other nail polish, and 2) I really couldn't even bring myself to do my nails after what happened. And then something changed. One of my fabulous coworkers sent me Essie Pool Side Service as a get well present, and I was ready to get back in the polishing game!

Pool Side Service is one of the colors from the new Spring 2016 Collection. It's such a unique shade -- that perfect mix of green and blue with a slightly dusky, dusty finish. It glides on smoothly and easily and is awesomely opaque in two coats.

I think this is a very interesting shade for spring. It's on the darker side, which feels more fall to me -- but I like that Essie stepped outside the spring comfort zone and tried something different. I definitely can't wait to wear this on my toes, too (although thanks to my ankle surgery it might be awhile before I'm able to get a pedicure).

In any case, I am SO HAPPY that I finally have a different color on my nails! It really helped to perk me up and make me start feeling like myself again. I think I'm going to have to buy a few more colors to get me through the weeks I'll be spending in Cleveland, don't you?

What's on your nails right now? Let me know in the comments!

  5. Very pretty. When I broke my leg I wasn't able to get my nails done and wore the same color for 9 weeks. The interesting thing is that it still looked pretty except for the growth. Feel better.
