why I love it: I've loved navy polish ever since high school, when I was attracted to dark nails, but I didn't quite want to go with black polish for fear of the associations is used to bring. A lot of times, they add some sort of shimmer or too much blue to the formulas, and they just aren't right. I was at CVS the other day to pick up something that wasn't even near the nail polish, but naturally I passed the nail polish and this color from the Fall 2013 collection caught my attention. It's a cream formula and in the bottle it's the type of navy that look almost black, exactly what I look for in a navy. I talked myself out of buying it considering I already own at least 3 navy polishes, but I don't know if I'll be able to continue to talk myself out of this one.
where to get it: CVS (and wherever they sell Essie), $8
