For my seventh birthday, my mom and sister gave me this little treasure box (that had photos of puppies all over it) filled with nail polishes. It was such a fun gift for a little girl. I remember going through the box picking out a neon yellow and an electric blue for Fourth of July. I kept that box until I was a pre-teen when I eventually outgrew it. I actually gave up nail polish for a while and then I in love with it again in college.
Once I got the hang of the perfect at-home manicure, I was hooked. I became that girl who’d paint her nails every week! Painting my own nails is something that I seriously enjoy doing. Even now, I prefer to paint my own nails versus going to a salon! I’m forced to sit still for twenty minutes while the polish dries, and I use it as a time to meditate if I’m feeling productive or watching an episode of television if I just want some time to turn off my brain for a bit.
I’m excited to be partnering with essie on this post to talk about their new line of polishes. As a big fan of essie, I was excited as a regular consumer (not just a blogger) to hear that they released a new collection called “Treat Love & Color.” I’m all for giving my nails a little TLC and nail polish is an inexpensive way to treat yourself a bit too.
Treat Love & Color by essie has twenty-six beautiful shades specially formulated to treat and color nails with one polish. After wearing the polish for just one week, you can see up to 60% less peeling and 35% less breakage. Especially in the winter, I struggle with dryness and my nails are no exception. Treat Love & Color helps strengthen dry and brittle nails.
I love that you don’t have to use a separate product to get the strengthening benefits. To be perfectly honest, I’d almost always skip that crucial step and go straight to the color out of laziness. So a one-step product? Count me in!!!
Among the polishes, there are cream, shimmer, and sheer shades.
Here are two of my favorite colors from the collection:
Power Punch Pink is a creamier light pink. It’s a pretty pink if you want something that has color without being overpowering.
I also love Minimally Modest. While I love a polish with a bit of color, I also love a great neutral for a low-maintenance everyday look. This one is slightly sheer but still has just enough color, like a French manicure pink.
If you work in an office where you want to look professional and put together, I can’t recommend it enough!
Look how gorgeous that shine is!!! It looks so clean and beautiful.
