A Little Summer in your Winter

Since it's only been, you know, two-thirds of a year since I last posted - I thought the most appropriate way for me to make my comeback would be to do a NOTD post.

Now, I know some of you will look at my polish of choice and shudder. Some of you may even roll your eyes in disgust at the fact that I'm so blatantly bending one of the unwritten rules of the beauty community.

Yes, I do it. I wear traditionally "summertime" polishes in the winter.

Case in point:

Polish: Essie's Van D'Go
Rating: 3.5/5

Van D'Go was one of the go-to polishes of this past summer for a whole lot of people. It's not hard to see why. It's this gorgeous peachy-pink sunrise kind of colour that has a brightening effect when applied to either the fingers or the toes. The three-and-a-half rating for this polish stems entirely from my love for the colour. Other than that it was an absolute horror to apply: streaky beyond belief and drying much too quickly for my slow-and-steady application pace.

So now, the question remains..... am I alone in my rebellion? Do you tend to stick to the typical vampy reds and deep, mysterious maroons at this time of the year, or do you branch out and wear whatever colour that happens to tickle your fancy at a particular moment in time?

  1. This is, without a doubt, one of my all time favorite polishes. I am okay with wearing it year 'round as well. I usually turn to vampy hues, but 'Van D'Go' has my heart!


  2. It's a gorgeous colour for sure! As much as I too love deep and dark fall/winter polishes, I'm happy to hear I'm not the only one adding a bit of brightness to my fingertips during this time of the year! =) xoxo
