Good morning, friends. I hope you’re having a good weekend so far. I’m sitting here at my desk, playing with nail polish and surfing the Net for beauty news.
Check out Essie’s fall polish line ($8 each). Keeping in character for fall, the collection features deep plum, berry and cherry shades that look good enough to eat (I’m always hungry, LOL!).
Sometimes I shy away from uber-dark shades because of how obvious it can be when they chip, so I’m glad Essie decided not to go too vampire dark with these colors.
- Big Spender: Light purple
- Forever Young: Vivid orange-red
- Lacy Not Racy: Deep burgundy
- No Boundaries: Dark plum
- Swept Off My Feet: Rose pink
- Tomboy No More: Deep red
Essie Weekend Giveaway
This should be fun. I’m giving away a full set of all six shades of Essie Fall 2008 this weekend. To qualify, just leave a comment with your favorite nail polish shade of all time and why you like it. I’ll choose the winner at random after I get home from work on Monday afternoon.
UPDATE: Entries are now closed. Congrats to reader Lucky for winning! She chose her nickname well!

I’m so glad it’s Saturday… Later this afternoon I’m heading to Bloomingdale’s in the City for a MAC Studio Talk session/class. I expect to hear plenty about the Cult of Cherry collection and can’t wait to see all of the quads and lipsticks.
I hope it’s a hands-on class like the Chanel master class a few weeks ago. If you have any MAC questions about Cult of Cherry or anything else, leave them for me in the comments, and I’ll do my best to get you an answer from the MAC people while I’m there.
