Manicure Monday: My All-Time Favorite Neutral Nail Colors

My childhood Caboodle is stocked with Essie nail lacquers in every shade of the rainbow,  but these days all I want to wear are easy neutrals. They’re like the t-shirt and jeans of nail color: classic, comfortable, and er, polished (pardon the pun).

I love a good salon pampering sesh as much as the next girl, but I usually don’t have time to sit down for a professional manicure. {Sometime soon I’m going to make time for this cherry blossom mani.} Over the years, I’ve mastered the DIY five-minutes-or-less version of a basic manicure.

  • Today I joined @shannatrudell in downtown Lakeland after she finished a wedding setup at @thesommerbuilding. We explored all the cute shops, sniffed everything at @rafanatural, swooned over @scoutandtag’s beautiful vignettes, petted lots of dogs, and cruised through the farmer’s market (well, just the plant vendors). While we were there, I officially fell in love with the @topbuttons boutique: you can shop a curated selection of new pieces, or browse the [amazingly organized] secondhand section; and your purchase helps empower local women and girls through a variety of @topbuttons’ civic partnerships. Shopping for great style that gives back? Count me in! #shoplocal #downtownlakeland #boutique #topbuttons
