My nails have finally grown back once again and I decided to celebrate with a new nail polish. I usually stick to either red or black nails because I'm boring like that, but this time I decided to be EXTRA boring and get a neutral pink shade. I landed on Essie Ladylike, and I'm surprised by how obsessed I am with this polish. 

It's not an easily defined color. One coat is an almost sheer pink, but if you add a second coat that takes it into mauve territory. I'm wearing two coats above but I also like it with the lighter one coat sometimes as well. I finish it with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Top Coat and it usually lasts for a few days to a week without chipping.

I've found that this is the perfect manicure for weddings, dates, work, and just looking put-together during my day-to-day. You could argue that it's on the boring side, but all I want in the summer is a pretty manicure that I don't have to spend too much time or thought on and this fits the bill.
