MANICure Monday featuring Essie in Playdate

Hello ladies and Happy New Year to all of you! I hope your year is off to a promising start and that your nails are all well manicured and sparkly!  And even if they aren't, I hope you're feeling like a million bucks, nonetheless.  I don't know about you guys, but when I'm feeling out of sorts, a great mani-pedi (and an application of strikingly bold lipstick) always makes me feel better.  But truth be told, I've been neglecting my nails lately.  Before this weekend, I hadn't put much effort into my manicures since before Christmas.  I know that might not seem like a big deal to some, but I change my polish like I change my lip gloss! I guess with all of the work and stress of the holiday season, I had neglected giving myself that extra pampering.  So, after looking down at my barren nails the other day, I decided to give this little play-date situation a whirl.  Not a real play-date per se', but digging in my stash and pulling out my Essie Nail Polish in Playdate once again to get myself in a happier mood.

And you see that splash of glitter, don't you?  You know I can't seem to get away from sparkly accents for the life of  me, so I added NYC Long Wearing Nail Enamel in Starry Silver Glitter.  Not only is it chock full of pretty silver glitter, it has flecks of soft pink and cerulean blue sparkles in it too!  That's my kinda polish!  On my accent nails, I used about three coats of Starry Silver Glitter to get the desired level of sparkle.

Needless to say, the festive mani definitely lifted my spirits!  There's something about the soft purple PlayDate polish that has me all hyped about Spring way too soon lol.  

So what are your manicures looking like this week ladies?  Did you play it safe with familiar colors and acrylics or did you go bold this week?  Perhaps you decided to skip the polish altogether.  Either way, I would love to hear all about the details in the comments. Let me know!
