Essie Wicked Witch of the West

Happy Thursday!!

A few months ago I tried Essie nail polish for the first time.  I bought "Splash of Grenadine" and absolutely loved it.  The nail polish is a great quality--it goes on smooth and lasts for a really long time!

Last week, I was craving a new nail polish so I popped into Ulta to get an Essie.  They were running a Buy 2, Get 1 Free special, so I left with three new polishes:  Ballet SlippersCute As A Button, and Merino Cool.

I tend to only wear nail polishes that are shades of pink or red.  I love it when I see girls wearing darker nail polish or funky colors, but whenever I try them on me I literally cringe.  

Last week, however, when I was getting one free, I figured I might as well try a funky color and consider it my free one..thus "Merino Cool."  When I first tried it, I literally put it on my pinky nail--exclaimed "Ewww" and took it off nicknaming it "Wicked Witch of the West" nail polish.  

I decided to give it another try, though, thinking that maybe if I wore it for a few days it would grow on me.  This is my second day wearing it and I will say it has grown on me!

What do y'all think?  Do you experiment with edgy nail polish colors or just stick to the classics?

In other news, lunch with Bryce and the Cuties went SO well yesterday!  He brought the Cuties water balloons and after lunch we preceded to have a huge water fight in the back yard.  Additionally, Cutie B is usually very slow to warm up to people and he and Bryce were instant buddies.  Bryce leaves this morning for a business trip until the 23rd.  I keep teasing him that when he comes back I'm going to have 5 new boyfriends, but it's really hitting me how much I'm going to miss him while he's gone!  

Have a great day!
