Literally - naked.
I haven't had my toes unpainted in about two years - and before that it had to be about five. Two years ago, over Christmas, I decided to figure out what my toes actually looked like "in the nude" for more than just the quick polish change I usually do.
They looked awful.
I hated it.
I always wore socks - except in bed (yeech - hate that feeling) so I would jump in and hide them under the covers as fast as I could so I didn't have to see them. It's not that their bad toes - not to brag, but I've actually been complimented quite a few times during a pedi and a latte (My mom says they say that to everyone, but I choose to believe that's just not true) - it's just that I'm not used to seeing them without polish and and I feel like I don't recognize them without it - they're not my toes anymore.
Fine, think I'm a weirdo.
But that lengthy intro is all to say that I've found a new nail polish brand to love. In elementary, it was whatever my mom had on hand - probably Sally Hanson. In high school, it was Nicole. In college it was OPI and now in working-woman life, it's Essie.*
Don't get me wrong, I'll use any polish available to keep my toes clothed, but Essie is my new go-to. It's thick, has a skinner brush than most brands (for those hard to reach edges), and I love the colors.

Am I the only weirdo out there that has to have their toes painted?
