Happy Monday! I hope your weekend was as enjoyable as mine. The boyfriend was away which called for a girls night at my house, some retail therapy and a Sunday Funday/Father’s Day in the pool at my parents’ house. It’s a rough life, I tell ya!

Being out in the summer sun has me craving brights which led me to the new Essie Summer 2014 collection. As I was swatching Urban Jungle, I thought of what a great base color it is for nail art and so my #ManiMonday was born.

Essie Neons 2014 Too Taboo

Even though I own a bunch of day-glo neon polishes, I rarely wear them. They’re cool but the opacity issues and streakiness that plague traditional neons make them a bother to apply. Plus, they can be a bit too much for everyday life.

That’s why I find the Essie Neons 2014 so refreshing. They’re well pigmented and aren’t as in-your-face. That’s just two of the reasons it’s one of my Top 10 nail polish collections of the summer.

Multi-Color French with Essie Neons 2014 for #ManiMonday

I received the new Essie Neons the other day and couldn’t wait to play with them. So, as you may have seen on my Instagram over the weekend, I did a quick freehand, multi-colored French manicure with five of the six new shades and I’m still wearing it for #ManiMonday.

Of course, if you want a more consistent look you can use French tip nail guides or even Band-Aids but when it’s the freakin’ weekend, I ain’t got time for that! If you want to see how I freehand a French, check out my Roll Your Way To A French Tip video tutorial.

The base colors (l-r): Essie Sittin’ Pretty, Essie Chills  & Thrills, Essie I’m Addicted, Essie Vices Versa, Essie Too Taboo

A full review is coming soon but, in the meantime, you can purchase the Essie Neons 2014 at Essie.com and Beauty.com. Essie nail polish retails for $8.50/ea for a .5oz bottle.

What are you wearing for this #ManiMonday? Have you seen the Essie Neons yet?

My office, aka The Polish Room, looks out over the backyard and given that we live on a close-knit street filled with active little kids, it’s common to see them running by, playing games after school. Especially now that spring has finally sprung.

Seeing them streak across the yards reminds me of building forts and endless games of Tag with my neighborhood friends. With names like Fashion Playground, Hide & Go Chic and Truth of Flare, the Essie Spring 2014 collection takes me right back to childhood, making me nostalgic for summer days of playing from dawn to dusk.
