I was so out of my element today. Bad timing to run around the metro for errands before my flight to Bangkok tonight. Thank God for Piandre Greenbelt where I found an hour of solace before going back to tying loose ends. Quickfix of the day: Mani and pedi.

   
Essie in Pretty Edgy

I chose Essie in Pretty Edgy, one of the three shades of Essie Summer Collection 2010. Lately it's all purples and taupes here and there because well, it's already fall! For a change I wanted something lively and warm. 

Most of you must've already noticed how most of my blogs on nails feature Essie. Well, I'm a fan! Unlike other nail polish brands, even the more expensive ones, Essie goes on smoothly and doesn't chip for over a week! Plus it has a wide array of shades to choose from. I own a dozen bottles and it's no pain to do a mani and/or pedi on myself because of the texture that glides on easily. And it's the only nail polish I know of that gives a glossy finish, deeming a topcoat unneccesary.

Essie is available in Rustan's Essenses at ₱425 per bottle.
