Nails of the Week #6: Essie Sand Tropez

This week I went with an old classic. I've had a lot of bright and deep nail colors lately and I had every intention of doing a fun summer neon, but when the day came where I had some time to do my nails I was in kind of a weird mood and opted for a muted neutral. It was just one of those days I didn't want to stand out which worked because even though I've had this color for quite awhile now, I had never used it! I think I tried once but didn't have the patience to wait for the coats to dry in between and I just ended up making a mess. I know some people prefer the more sheer look but since my nails are still slightly stained I piled on three coats to get this opaque look. There is a tiny bit of streaking on one or two nails but since this color is so neutral it wasn't that noticeable and I decided to not go for the fourth coat. 
Overall I'm a huge fan of Essie Sand Tropez. It's a little light on me so I think if I was tanner it would be even more beautiful. It's just the perfect nude in my opinion and I picture using it as a base sometime and sticking on some rhinestone and glitter to jazz it up. I can see why it is a fan favorite and I think this would be great on the toes too! I kind of regret cutting my nails short, I've finally gotten them healthy enough that I can rock the longer nails without the nail breaking or splitting, but long nails really bothered me and got in the way. Maybe I'll leave them alone so I can do some epic nail art soon...

  2. In most cases as long as the causing factor (e.g. improper nail cutting or tight shoes) is avoided, the ingrown nail should not reoccur.Top Nail Fungus Treatment
