Essie – Under Where?

Essie - Under WhereDue to a series of unfortunate nail disasters this weekend,  I had to cut down my nails to a painfully short length. They’re not quite ready for public consumption so, let’s take a trip down memory lane. Join me?

Under Where is from Essie’s 2013 Resort Collection. While Alli picked up half of the collection: First Timer and In the Cab-ana, I passed on it entirely. I ended up getting Under Where? in a swap a few months ago from my awesome polish pal Amanda.

Essie describes Under Where? as a “wildly flirtatious orchid.” Gotta watch out for those flirty polishes, they get into all sorts of trouble… But really, it’s a really understated, classy light purple. I found it to be super flattering. The formula was lovely. I applied two smooth coats for my swatches. I love it.

Make sure to check out the pictures below!

Happy Monday!

  1. Katie, I love the length your nails are in this picture. I am forever clipping mine, trying to keep them that length! (I know, you hate me because my nails grow so fast!) Hope yours are ready to show off new polish soon.

    1. I love this length too! I am hoping they speedily return to that length!

      I’m a bit jealous of you, yes 🙂 But how lucky to have such fast growing nails! Woo!

      My fingers are crossed for a new post on Monday 🙂 Short or not..

  2. Sorry to disappoint, Katie, but we are more interested in the polish – well, I am! – not so much in the length your nails… Lovely lilac, by the way. 🙂

What do you think?
