Essie Truth or Flare Essie Truth or Flare Swatch Essie Spring 2014 Confession time: I am obsessed with this nail polish color. Last week I saw it on Lily’s blog and then on Tamira’s blog and I had to have it. Normally when I see something I like I add it to my wishlist (aka Pinterest) and then maybe I’ll buy it down the line, or maybe I won’t. This was different though- the very next day I went to three different drugstores until I tracked this polish down. I think it’s the prettiest shade of dusty blue and *I don’t have any other color like it (*justifications of a nail polish addict). I did really nice, thin layers and it took me three coats to get it look like it does in these pictures. I said it on my instagram, but I’ll say it here too- a new nail polish is my go-to solution for a quick pick-me-up. A fresh manicure is always an instant mood booster for me!

Tell me: What’s the last color you painted your nails with?

    Hmmm….I think I need to have this one too. I appreciate a blue like this. The last colors I had (and still have, though it’s currently chipping) were OPI Malaga Wine and OPI Metallic 4 Life on my ring finger.

      Oh, those are both such pretty colors (and I love the name “Malaga Wine” which reminds me of Spain :)

    Essie is 100% my go-to for nail colors, and I’m loving this one!! Such a fan of pretty blues for spring and summer. It’s fun having some pop when I’m in office-wear during the day :)

      Thank you Natalie! Yes, I love having a pop of color on my nails too :)

    Love this color, but I just bought “find me an oasis” so I should probably calm down on the blue nail polish.

    • http://starcrossedsmile.com/ Nnenna

      Ahh, that color’s so pretty too! I say you can never have enough nail polish ;)

  • Jenmarie

    Ha! I definitely know the feeling of having to go out and buy something! The color is beautiful, glad you were able to find it :)

      Thank you! Essie has so much lovely colors, it’s hard not to buy all of them! :)

    I am so guilty of seeing things on bloggers then running out and buying them – this is a great color, and for a polish addict, I can see why it was so easy to pull the trigger.

    I just spotted this picture on your instagram, by chance I used the exact same essie color last night while I painted my nails. And I loved it, I usually lean more to pinks, reds and purples, but I am loving this blue!

    • http://starcrossedsmile.com/ Nnenna

      Cool! I really do love this color. Blue is my favorite color and I don’t have any other polish like this one!
