Polished Look for Fall



I have been on the hunt for the perfect burgundy/cabernet color and I have finally found it!

  Essie Shall We Chalet? is seriously the perfect fall red. My afternoon class was cancelled and I decided to spend that free hour "treating myself" to Starbucks and Target. (It's the simple things, haha) When I saw this color in the store, I had to get it. I also picked up Essie Quick-e drying drops. One of the things I hate the most is waiting for my nails to dry. This stuff literally takes 60 seconds and I'm out the door!

Having my nails painted, in general, makes m e feel "put-together" (even though I am totally not!!)I will occasionally get gel manicures when I need a little pampering or going to an event, but I'd much rather do it myself. I like the freedom of being able to change the color or touch it up when it chips. It's kind of a double-edged sword, though. It is a great stress reliever, but chipped nails give me terrible anxiety. I carry around the polish with me at all times just in case.


What little things make you feel "polished" this fall?
