This pretty, slightly off-white polish was one of Essie's first 12 polishes she ever created. It's such a classic colour that it's still in the core collection 36 years later! Once I found out this was part of the original 12, I HAD to order it. Essie created this colour to be used as a natural looking french tip. For a modern update, I painted Baby's Breath over my entire nail and then used a pink metallic as the french tip. I'm loving the rose gold against this soft white!
I make time for other non-mom things besides painting nails. I don't want to just cook and clean and drive my kids around all day, so I like to nurture things that I really enjoy like blogging, writing, reading, book club, running, listening to music...the list goes on! I actually ran a half-marathon a few months ago. I love to throw in my headphones and hit the pavement. It helps to declutter my brain and I can disappear into the rhythm of the music and the pounding of my feet.
My Sudio* wireless headphones are awesome for throwing in and going for a run or when I want to sit back and listen to music while I blog.
The white and rose gold is a really pretty and classic combination. They are easy to turn the volume up and down since the controls are right there and there's also a built in microphone so I can answer my phone without actually touching my phone. These are perfect features for a mom who's busy and on the go!
Sometimes I have guilty feelings and start to question "do I have too many bottles of nail polish?", "am I really going to paint my nails AGAIN just so I can take pictures and blog about it?", "is it okay to go for a run and escape for a bit?" But I have to remind myself not to listen to that guilt. Of COURSE it is okay do things you love and treat yourself! All of these interests are a part of who I am.
So I'mma keep collecting my bottles of Essie polishes and sharing them with you. Including, buying random white polishes (when I already have a bunch) simply because it's an OG classic.
Does anyone feel me on this? Do you ever have guilty feelings over how often you paint your nails or how many bottles of polish you have? Do you make time for yourself and do things that you love? I'd love to hear what you do!
