Whoa whoa whoa! Does that sound risque or what? But hey, let's cool our heels and get those seductive mental images out of our heads...we're talkin' nail polish here!
Can you believe I've had this nail polish for over a month and I've yet to try it until recently?! It's a sign that I may have graduated from makeup aficionado to obsessive compulsive hoarder! But here's the skinny on Topless and Barefoot: it's a soft, creamy nude shade which I find absolutely gorgeous, I really can't get enough of nude. It's like, the new black, you know what I mean? There's an understated elegance to it and it's a color that goes with just about anything. When I can't decide what to wear...dress, shoes, lipstick, nails...nude is my default go-to color. You can't go wrong with it. I purchased my bottle of Essie Topless and Barefoot at Bonanza for less than $5 (shipping not included). It's a pretty good deal as far as I can tell because it's sold at my local CVS for close to $9.
In the photo I'm actually wearing it with *gasp* a base coat AND top coat! What a surprise. Those of you that know me know that I've always been waaaaaaay too lazy for those extra steps and generally wear my polish "naked". I DID cheat a little, though, by using a 2-in-1 base and topcoat formula by Sally Hansen called Double Duty:
I'm no nail polish connoisseur, so there's not much I can tell you except that it gives my polish a super-shiny finish! I guess it's supposed to prevent chipping and makes your nails stronger, though it's only been 2 days so I can neither confirm or deny that. Lol.
