Essie Topless & Barefoot | Mani Monday

When January rolls around, I just want Spring to makes it’s appearance. I’m done with the cold, the snow and I need a break (though just a short one) from the reds and glitter polish. All through November and into December, I will wear red or glitter on my nails every single day and love every moment of it. But when January 2nd comes, I’m ready for neutrals.essietoplessandbarefoot

I looked through my drawer of nail polish at the beginning of the month, trying to find the perfect neutral, but nothing looked right. Too light. Too dark. Too grey. Too pink. And then my eyes found this one. Essie’s Topless & Barefoot is such a beautiful shade. In the bottle, it looks quite dark, however looks can be quite deceiving. Rather than a brown nude, it’s actually closer to beige with pink undertones. In certain lights, it can look a little peachy, which is a breath of fresh air for my nails right now. I imagine I will get a lot of use out of this shade this month, and in the months to comes as I wait impatiently for Spring to come back.

What nail polish shades do you wear in January? What’s your favourite nude shade?

  • That polish is gorgeous! I love neutral colours mostly in the Fall for whatever reason.

  • I am over my burgundy/glitters as well and usually opt for darker neutrals. Yesterday i picked “Go Ginza” from Essie though, because it was raining all day and I need a springtime pick me up.
