I’m just starting to emerge from under my inbox and am thrilled to announce that I now have about 20 times more headspace than I did one month ago. Yes!! In fact, with all this extra energy, I am machete-ing through messages like never before, and it is awesome. In also-awesome news, I was excited to discover that readers have begun to submit questions for the ASK column that I mentioned here. Double Yes!!!
We’ll start with an easy one:
Q: Hi Rachel, I came across your blog while looking for wedding rings…..love yours by the way. Silly question but your nails are always gorgeous gray colors, what are the names of a few of your favorites? Thanks! Stefany
A: Hi Stefany! Grays are always such a chic choice. I prefer warmer grays to cool ones and really love Essie polishes– they have a ton of great color options and are also “three-free” and all that jazz. From L to R here are the four I rotate: Armed and Ready, Mink Muffs, Mochacino and Chinchilly. Miss Fancy Pants and Master Plan are good ones too! I am not sure why these product images are not more color accurate– Armed and Ready is actually a shimmery gun metal, more like this, and Chinchilly is more of dusky lavender than the gray-green shown here. Mochacino would be so lovely for summer weddings as it has a nice bit of luster, and the rest will carry you right into the Fall. Hope you love!
Sidenote 1: Essie please hire me to name your polishes. It’s impossible to have a bad day while dreaming up adorable titles, right?
Sidenote 2: I am cracking up as I write this, remembering how upset my sweet friend Claudia (who is an avid vegetarian and runs and animal shelter in Mozambique) got a few years ago when a bunch of us were obsessing on Facebook about much we all love wearing “mink muffs.” HA!!
Looking forward to answering many more questions here on the blog. Keep ’em coming!
