essie’s new resort collection polishes are all named after camera-worthy phrases. from the iridescent lilac ‘she’s picture perfect‘ to moody violet ‘no more film‘ – the four lacquers are a home run, but the winner of the bunch for me, is sure shot. in the words of the brand, it’s an irresistible, glistening magenta and it perfectly captures the essence of dc’s cherry blossom season, peaking right now. if you’ve never seen it in person, it’s a seriously gorgeous sight to behold. the blossoms bloom in the hundreds of thousands around the tidal basin painting this kind of puffy white and pink backdrop for all of the monuments.
to tie in with essie’s photographer theme, i am sharing a photo of the blossoms snapped by my talented friend meg. if you’ve just got to have a little cherry blossom cheer in your world, you can purchase her images here. and if you’ve just got to have a little blooming magenta on your nails, you can purchase essie’s sure shot here.
a very happy 100th anniversary, cherry blossom trees!
