Enter Essie's Sugar Daddy (does the name annoy anyone else but me? oh well).
Even though it might not be worth it since the world may end afterall, 2012 has definitely been the year of nail experimentation pour moi. First discovery was my love of orange-reds, now pale pinks. Pinks?! I've been a strictly purple girl since birth, but for some reason I decided to give one of Essie's numerous sheer pinks a try. Of course, I first did my homework via MUA and learned that unless you have the patience of a saint (I do not), Sugar Daddy is better match than the likes of Ballet Slippers and Mademoiselle. Pains me as those names are more up my alley, but I love the effect of this one. Three coats and it delivers a glossy, pinky natural nail. A "your nails but better", if you will.
Hence this post's title, both my mom and I deemed this polish quite "grown up". So if you're on the hunt for a shade suitable for an interview, the office, or just as neutral as it gets, I highly recommend Sugar Daddy (again, the name though...need to get past that).
What are your favorite sheer pinks or nudes? I feel an obsession coming on...
