Nail polish essentials


How is your summer going? I have been going to the beach, to the gym and to help my mom at work, so I have been fairly busy. However, I always take some me-time to pamper myself. In summer, I don't like to wear much makeup, but I pay more attention to my nails. Manicures and pedicures are a little more expensive than in the US here, so I have been doing them by myself. I usually rely on Essie for my nail necessities. There are SO MANY colors and the application is so easy, even for the clumsiest girl in the world (aka le me). Besides, I get a lot of compliments from them. :)
Here are my nail polish essentials:

Clockwise from top left:
- Borrowed & Blue: A light blue shade, perfect for summer! Also, it was one of the featured colors for Lilly for Target!
- Peach Daiquiri: This pink-orange-red color combo looks fabulous for pale girls like me, I swear by it!
- Fiji: If you are looking for the ultimate baby pink, get Fiji. Unlike others, it's not sheer, and a couple of layers are enough, trust me.
- Pansy: Another Lilly for Target pick, I imagine it as the color Barbie (aka my childhood idol/role model/obsession) would wear. A+ for that.
- Merino Cool: Now this color does not look like the usual summer color, and it's not. I usually wear it in the fall. However, for rainy and dull Basque days (again, it rains a lot here), it's a very sleek option.

I also want to make a special mention to another treasure in an Essie bottle:

THE. BEST. EVER. All in one, as in base coat and top coat in one. I bought this to see if it would make a difference in my mani-pedis and oh boy! It has been a game changer. Seriously, at 10$ a bottle, get one. Now. Here.

Which are your favorite nail colors? What other nail care products do you use? Let me know! :)
