I was visiting Charleston, SC with my sister and mom…I was in desperate need of a manicure. My cuticles were peeling, I had scraps of polish left on a few nails…times were tough. We stopped by a local salon and got our nails done (one of my favorite mother-daughter events). I wanted something whitish/pink…that would complement my pasty skin tone. I’ve always liked those whitish/pink tones against tan skin but I am far from tan especially in late January.
I tried Essie’s ‘Fiji’ – the manicurist warned me that it is ‘a lot like white out’ – in other words, it stands out. I decided to test it out and I love it. I think because I don’t have any color I needed the extra ‘white out’ and now the pinkish-white color is popping on my nails. It is a fun color and would look even better on a nice sandy Carribean beach!
So far – no chips, which is also great! (it’s been 4 days)
Other than @ the salon – I think you can get Essie colors at Bed Bath & Beyond (or atleast I saw them there last time I was in the store).
