Essie Eternal Optimist

I am too tired to take pictures and upload so this is Eternal Optimist from last week or so. Gosh it's getting harder to type everyday. I am really bad at typing as some of you know already, nails make it impossible to not typo!


I like the color, but I don't think it suits my skintone. It's a pinkish nude that made me look sallow in person. Does that mean I'm warm tone?


I think this indoor shot came out too dark, but you can really see the pink! I am wearing 3 coats, sorry about the cut too.

  2. I too like it on you, it's subtle and classic, and every now and then we need a shade like that. I never could be clear on the whole warm/cool thing, but I'd say you're warm.

  3. The name makes me think of Charlotte's character in SATC, I think Carrie calls her that way during an episode. The color would suit her terribly well, it is classic and elegant.
    I think it looks good on you too.

  4. I actually like Eternal Optimist with your skin. I would say your complexion would fall into the warm category. I am not the best typist either, but I can't blame my nails. I've never been good at typing no matter the length. ;)

  5. I love nude pinks. I think they are so classy and I still just can't get over your nails. I don't care to have long nails, but gorgeous!

  7. I think we all are in agreeance on this Kae - because I too think it looks lovely on you! It's nice to switch up with neutrals every once in a while, hence my obsession with the khakis and browns lately. You have such lovely nails!

  8. Okay, here's the real story. You are a "winter". Whether it's nail polish or clothes, no earth tones, no yellow-based colors, only blue-based colors. Jewel tones are your friend. Jewelry....white gold or silver are best(although I love my yellow gold--great with a tan. I know this from personal experience. Enjoy your blog!!

    I feel like I've been wearing nothing but sutble! I need to get some more funky brights. Yeah I'm confused too, I guess I never really notice how a color looks on my skin. I either like the color or not lol.
