I continue with my little Nail Polish sub-series of my five signature polishes, revealing the second color in this Signature Sunday post. You can read about my first one here. Today, I chose my sheer neutral polish called Mademoiselle by essie for my February manicure. I bought a new bottle of this polish when I ordered Style Hunter from Ulta. I actually brought my own bottle to my regular nail salon this morning. I haven't had a professional manicure since October, so it was a nice treat. Also, even though the formula is decent, a professional can still paint a sheer better than this amateur can, so that it's flat, not streaky or uneven at all. I'm wearing two coats of color in the photos.
This color achieves a chic, polished look, that almost appears effortless since it's understated. It's marketed as a "classic, grown-up pink" which I love! Anything timeless and sophisticated. It's almost like wearing a clear coat but it definitely has a slightly pink white cloudiness to it. It's also soft and feminine. When my nails are a bit long, it's my go-to shade. (I think a rich hue on a shorter nail still looks good, modern even.) If I'm in the mood for something different, it's also the one since my other lacquers are all vibrant and opaque. I've been wearing this for years now, but I bet that fellow Francopile Jennifer from The Daily Connoisseur inspired me to try it.
