Essie Where's My Chauffeur? (AKA the polish I wore when I got engaged!)

Finally back to "normalcy," after going to Vermont and getting engaged.  It's still super weird to say, let alone write, out loud.  I'll definitely be getting back to you ladies with more details about how he proposed and what the ring looks like, but in the meantime, let's take a look at the polish I wore the day I got engaged.

Obviously, I didn't know he had planned to pop the question that day, and I had prepacked a number of polishes for my trip.  When I do that, I usually let him pick out which polish I'll apply (he's pretty predictable about going for the bright colors) and he chose Essie Where's My Chauffeur.  He knew he was proposing the next day but he told me afterwards he only chose this because he hates that I think his color choices are predictable.  He actually totally didn't even think about what color would look best in the initial ring pictures.  Boys will be boys.

Anyways, Essie Where's My Chauffeur is one of those shouldn't-be-in-a-winter-collection-but-somehow-works polishes.  A bright green leaning aqua creme, WMC is heaven to apply and just made me smile to look at.  

This is 2 coats.


I personally adore bright pastels like this but I probably will wear this more in the summer than in the winter.  I want to thank my polish bestie Nory for this now super special color and for being such a huge support during my initial stages of engagedom.  Let the freak outs commence!
