Just another Manicure Monday post… with possibly my favorite nail polish color to date! Essie Cute As A Button!
It is described as a “juicy persimmon delight of a coral polish that adds an air of innocence instantly fresh, soft and ripe for the picking.” I feel like there is a lot of sexual innuendo in that description. I’m not sure about the innocence part, but it’s definitely ripe!
Last year, my most worn spring and summer polish was Fear Or Desire. This year was all about the button.
I have so many Essie polishes and I’m not quiet sure why I have over looked Cute As A Button in the past. When I first starting lusting after this shade in the winter, I hesitated. “This is a summer shade,” I thought, “I don’t need any more nail polish!” But, I was compelled by its beauty.
I caved in and decided that it would only be justifiable to purchase this nail polish if I found it on sale. With my luck, every time Essie went on sale at Pharmaprix (aka Shoppers Drugmart) Cute As A Button was sold out! I became obsessed, we always want what we can’t have!
Long story short, I got it at a salon when they had a “buy 2 get the 3rd one free” promotion. The other polishes I picked out were E-nuff is E-nuff and a pink of which I forgot the name of.
What’s so great about Cute As A Button, you ask? Everything! I love the cream finish, the fact that it’s opaque and only takes 2 coats. I love the vibrancy of the shade, it’s somewhere between a cream and a bright shade. It’s also somewhere between a coral, a pink and an orange. It’s ambiguous and I love it!
What nail polish are you head-over-heels in love with? Have you found the one?
