Manicure Monday: Special Edition

After getting home from school and trying to adjust to my post grad life, I needed a lot of pampering. That means doing my hair, getting my eyebrows done, and getting a manicure and pedicure. 

You could probably tell from all my manicure monday posts that I don't get manicures often. They always chip the minute I leave the salon and I don't like feeling helpless while the woman does my nails. I also like to change my color too often, it almost feels like a waste of money.

That doesn't mean that a manicure isn't sometimes needed. Sometimes your nails need to be cleaned and taken care of properly and that is where the pampering comes in.

After a tough finals week, packing, unpacking and moving in and out of houses, my nails were a mess. Even the nail technician said my nails were completely distraught therefore this manicure was much needed.



I chose "Haute in the Heat" from Essie's 2014 Summer collection which looks a lot like "Watermelon" but with a even hotter pink tint to it. 

This got me thinking... as much as I love Fall nail colors, I love summer colors even more. There is something about a light blue or hot pink nail color that just feels so right. I definitely have some favorite summer colors that I've collected over the past two years and I thought I'd share my top 5.

L'Oreal "Orange You Jealous", Essie "First Timer", Essie "Bikini So Teeny",
Essie "Off the Shoulder" , Essie Naughty Nautical 

What are your favorite summer nail colors?
