NOTD: Essie Play Date


Two coats of Essie Playdate. Flirtatious, soft purple from the Go Overboard! Collection.

There are some nail colors that you purchase because of their too-cute-to-resist name, and others that you purchase for their seriously pretty color. For me, Playdate was purchased for both. The name itself has a coquettish kick that I wasn't going to even attempt to ignore; but the color...prettiness to the tenth power! What I love {and I mean LOVE} about Playdate is that it is definitely a pastel purple {perfect for spring}, but it also has an incredible neon undertone that adds this vibrant pop, making it wearable {and totally appropriate} through the summer months. Color aside...the formula was perfect - not streaky, not watery, just smooth and even. A definite must if your collection is lacking a purple!


What nail color are you rocking for #ManicureMonday?

Sweet! Beautiful look. So have to find this color now. I am sure its time for me to put away the golds and silver nail polishes I have.

Style with Benefits said...

Such a pretty shade of purple! Hey, what nail polish brand is your favorite? I know you use a variety - any polishes that tend to stay on longer than others? I try to put a clear top coat on but sometimes I get too lazy and forgo it. Just wondering which is your favorite... thanks! :)

xx, becs
