I'm the girl that bit my nails for 20 years. I started when I was a kid and I bit them when I was bored, when I was nervous, or anxious, or they were just too long. I didn't even stop when I got braces, just figured a way to bite them anyhow. Over the years I tried so many times to stop and nothing ever stuck.
Then a year and a half ago I got together with some girl friends and they pampered me with a manicure and pedicure since I was 8 months pregnant. I loved my nails without ragged cuticles! And they looked so nice not bitten down to the quick! I realized I needed to get a few tools in my life to keep them looking so nice ; cuticle nippers, cuticle oil, a nail file and a pretty nail polish. That first pretty nail polish was Essie Tart Deco and I just completely fell in love with the brand. I love the classic beautiful colors, the shape of the bottle, the brush, and the easy to apply formula. It's safe to say I became a little Essie obsessed. My Essie polish stash has grown to almost 100 in the last year (*3 years later and its over 250). I decided to start this space so that all the colors and collections and things I love about Essie could be contained in one place. I am not employed by or compensated by Essie to write to this blog - I truly am just a girl who loves their polish. I hope you enjoy and develop a little Essie envy yourself ;)
