Essie nail polish in pound cake

I recently went to Luxe Den in midtown for a manicure. You would think it was easy enough to find a neutral color for my nails, but the manicurist and I found ourselves sifting through 10 different shades for something that was neutral but not sheer.

We finally found Essie’s Pound Cake, an opaque pale beige. I thought it turned out to be a very elegant color.

  1. I love that color!!! Luxe Den is right near my apartment.. I havent gotten a manicure from there, but never go there for haircuts!!! I went because its close by, and had two bad experiences with two different stylists..
