What's in a name?

Hey y'all!  Happy Monday!  I picked up a little something while shopping the other day, and just wanted to share :)

So I don't know what motivates you when you are out shopping, but I'm a little all over the place.  Sometimes, I have a specific color, or 'vibe' I'm going for.  Sometimes I just want a top, but I'll go with whatever strikes my fancy.  Or I'm in the mood for something sparkly.  It just kinda depends on the day.  Well, last week Target had my favorite Essie nail polishes on sale, so I knew I wanted to get one.  Let me just pause here and say that Essie makes gorgeous nail polish!  The colors are so beautiful, and they really last.  For someone who's hands are always in dishwater, or bath water, thats super important.

Anywho, I knew I wanted some new polish, and that I wanted something pink.  Oh and something that would be a good color throughout the fall.  So not to neon or bright.  Normally when I put this many guidelines on what I'm looking for, I'm just not going to find it.  Like how hard is it to find an orange maternity shirt?  Apparently impossible when I want one.  But I digress.

I went in search of my perfect fall pink, and started picking things up off the shelf and casually reading the names.  Essie always manages to have cute names for their polishes :)  Which is when I found this gem.

Eternal Optimist.  I almost just tossed it in the basket after seeing that, without even really looking at the color.  I mean, who doesn't want a little optimism right on their fingers?!  But I stopped to check out the color.  Because at almost $8 a pop, this is not the cheapest nail polish.  And guess what?  Its gorgeous!

I gave myself a little mani/pedi yesterday, and I'm in love!  Its a beautiful neutral dusty pink.  Like a pink nude.  Love!  And every time I glance at the color, I think 'eternal optimism', and it makes me smile :)  A little reminder to look at the bright side!  I may start picking nail polishes purely by name from now on :)
