essie Chillato

Hello Lovely Ladies,

On Monday night I had the privilege of going out for dinner with my hubby.  It isn’t often that we can get childcare to enjoy an evening out to ourselves.  This was a welcome mini-getaway… I also chose to take that evening off from blogging (hence no post yesterday).

On Monday I spoke a little about what I would choose as the ‘it summer 2015 hue’, and today’s feature shade – essie Chillato – fits right into that category in a demure, sophisticated way:

Summer Shade of the Year?

Hello Lovely Ladies!

The other day my best friend asked me what the “it” manicure color was for this summer.

A simple question really, but it had me stumped.  I don’t know if it is just me, if I have been out of the hip-and-trendy loop but I really wasn’t able to answer her.  Sure, a lot of brands are releasing neon shades… brights are always fun for the summer.  On the other hand, the runway is pushing the nude nail look.  Personally, I am always a sucker for a pale blue and I’m still digging the white polish, while a few metallic shades are also popping up here and there for a chrome-shine mani.  I know a number of you are yelling “holographic everything for the summer” at the computer screen right now…

… but really, what IS the summer 2015 manicure shade?

I have noticed a very strong personal pull to the neon/almost neon pastel bright yellow-greens lately.  This is surprising for me as I am not one to usually linger in the yellow/green hues for long… but I am LOVING that a number of brands have been popping up with this ‘hue’.

Today I will show you Orly Key Lime Twist:
