Fall Beauty Essential #4: Red Nails

Last year I would’ve said red lipstick. This year it’s all about statement nails. Barely there nude shades are still around, but do your mood a favor and paint on something punchier. A glossy, classic red like Essie Too Too Hot on short nails can make you and your outfit look instantly more polished and pulled together.  Admittedly I go through shamefully long periods of bare nails. Who has time for a manicure?! My version involves keeping a couple bottles of polish in the car so I can slap some on at stop lights in the parking garage before heading into the office. This fall I am DETERMINED to do so more regularly.
