Essie Cantaloupe

I'll admit, I have a deep affection for the J. Crew aesthetic. I'm constantly browsing the site, getting email updates, and I always stop into the store when I'm at the mall. My sister is hands down the more fashion forward of our pair, and she is always curating a specific look to her entire wardrobe which I admire. This includes her very selective choices in nail color, unlike myself who just buys every color I'm in love with (obviously).

Essie Cantaloupe is a color I snagged from my sister's small collection and I have to say that I'm smitten. It's the perfect "J. Crew-esque" warm weather shade with it's terra cotta pink color. Cantaloupe is sure to be in much heavier rotation on my nails this spring since I now know she has it! My swatch is shown with base and top coat.

Cantaloupe's formula was fantastic, applying evenly and smoothly in just two coats with minimal clean-up required. I'm still hunting for the perfect color to wear on my beach vacation this summer, and Cantaloupe's effortlessly classy, chic, and fun hue has definitely earned a spot for final consideration.
