Manicure Monday: Essie Topless & Barefoot

Manicure Monday

With summer fast approaching I have shelved my usual plummy reds and purple nail polishes in favour of something a bit more light and fresh. My go-to shade for the past two summers has been Topless & Barefoot by Essie, which I think sums up the spirit of summer perfectly (I mean, don’t we all want to be topless and barefoot? I know I do – well, in a way that doesn’t get me arrested, of course).

The shade is a lovely soft pinky beige and, this is going to sound ridiculous but please humour me, it looks expensive. You know when you find that perfect neutral shade that makes you look like a pampered Camps Bay housewife (my dream)? Well, this is it. I find the first coat is always a bit streaky but after the second coat you are left with the most gorgeous, opaque, glossy nail. You will look sleek, groomed and glamorous – that ticks all of my boxes, how about yours?
