In honor of my trip, I decided to show you the shade I am going to wear! It's Essie Breezy Beach, an opaque in two coats peachy pink with pink-violet shimmer. It wears fairly well and doesn't look awful once it starts chipping, since it's not too far off from my skin tone and nail color. Plus, it's a princess-y pink; it's my perfect low-maintenance Disneyland shade.
It doesn't seem like Breezy Beach is available any longer, and I honestly can't tell you much about it, other than that I bought it on clearance at a beauty supply store in San Jose several years ago. However, wear and application are good!
Sorry about my dinky middle finger... My stupid nail was peeling and the nail polish was lifting. Not the nail polish's fault... I didn't have any chips for a few days with this, which is great for me!
If you enlarge the pictures, you can catch a bit of the subtle pink-violet flash that the shimmer gives this shade!

Do you guys ever re-discover things you've owned for years and fall back in love? Or even more in love than you were the first time around?
Now, I'm off to try to finish packing before I head out tomorrow morning for the first leg of our journey... I'm going to spend the night at my friend's house a couple of hours south to break the driving up a little and extend the vacation, should be fun seeing my old high school-era stomping grounds! Hope you guys are all enjoying your summer and are looking forward to a nice weekend!
