Essie Blue Rhapsody

Have you ever had one of those days where you don't know what nail polish to wear, but no matter which one you end up using you're just not satisfied with the end result? Today was one of those days for me.

Not even the icy blue chrome loveliness of Essie Blue Rhapsody could coax me out of my manicure funk. This is the second time I've worn this polish and it's consistently pretty and very metallic. For being a chrome the formula was fairly easy to work with and I didn't have any crazy brushstroke marks by the second coat. I did have a little issue with dragging simply because chromes dry so incredibly quickly. Oh! And this one was pretty difficult to cleanup with a brush so be sure to take your time creating smooth cuticle lines when you're polishing. This swatch is two coats of Blue Rhapsody with base and top coat.

What is your go-to polish for days when you can't decide? Let me know in the comments! Thanks for reading!

  1. I really like China Glaze's Fast Track, from their Hunger Games collection. It's such a pretty neutral with just the bit of gold shimmer. It's also the type of polish that goes with everything and is easy to apply and remove, formula is nice. I normally gravitate towards dark polishes or ones with lots of pizzazz, sometimes it's refreshing to just wear something simple and pretty.
