Quick Silk Stockings - Essie Au Natural


Just a quick shot for you today - normally I wouldn't share this as its just a snap with my cell phone camera at the bus stop and doesn't really show off the colour or finish, but I loved how it showed off the shine! (Check out those little star shaped reflections - you can almost hear them say *pling*!)


I wasn't feeling really manicure-inspired, so I put on two coats of Essie Au Natural - it looks taupe in the bottle, but what it really is is silk stockings in polish form. My mother always says that "Ladies always wear stockings!" and this really embodies that. It looks clear - like bare legs - from a distance, but the tone is evened out and there's a little bit of a sheen to it...

I'll show you a good shot of this one of these days, but to be honest my nails can't bear the close-up right now! Suffice to say this is one of my favourite sheers - it never looks yellow (ick) or pink (just not in the mood sometimes). I highly recommend it!

It's so exciting to find the perfect nude! I just found mine-- San Tan-tonio. Most nudes have too much pink in them or are too pale. I didn't think I would like it in the bottle, but once I tried it I fell in love! It's just a shade darker than my skin so it doesn't look like I have no nails. hee hee

The Orbitz gum girl should totally wear that. Brightens nails, no matter what!

@Melissa - Ooo I am absolutely loving Essie Milky Way, which is fairly similar to San Tan-tonio. Sooo gorgeous. And I love the Orbitz gum idea! ;)

Looks really pretty and clean looking. It's hard to find the perfect nude. You'd think since they're so many available that it would be easy. It's so true that some are too pink and some are to tan. I wish I still have Revlon's Santa Fe Sand. It was a perfect nude for me. Unfortunately it was discontinued a long time ago.
