I am up in New York for the week, trying to get the most amount of wedding planning accomplished in the shortest amount of time.
Of course, I am also trying to squeeze in a few recon beauty missions to the Big Three under the guise of looking for wedding shoes...
So the first thing I did when I hit the streets was to indulge in one of the greatest New York pastimes.
No, not giving the wrong directions to confused tourists...
I got a cheapie manicure.
In oh-so-super-duper trendy Essie Wicked.
Wicked is a dark plummy red, as opposed to my current dark polish favorite, Sephora No. 11, which is a much brickier red.
I'm really liking the color on my skin tone, but as also with dark nails, they must be kept super short and not chipped, lest you look like a low maintenance vampiress after her Thanksgiving meal.
Now I can sit and admire my nails while flipping through invitation books and pretending I understand all the nuances of the different fonts...
