Perfect summer nail polish: Clambake

I may have stumbled on the most perfect summer polish color, ever.

This weekend I had my nails done at a friend’s second baby shower. It’s that perfect for a second baby? Lunch and mani/pedis. Just something simple to celebrate the mama before things get crazy for her.

And first time since January I’ve had my toes properly painted. Why don’t I do this more?!? Just the foot massage is totally worth it.

Say hello to Essie Clambake. The most delicious creamy red-orange summer toe polish, with an even more delightful name. Makes me feel like I’m spending the summer wearing boat-neck striped tees and bikini bottoms and big straw hats on a ritzy east coast beach. (Which I am not.) (But still.)

    talk about mind-reading…
    i’ve been thinking about needing the perfect summer polish (deep thoughts, i know) and this may have just taken the number one slot on the list!

    Looks really close to OPI’s Cajun Shrimp that I got a few weeks ago before a trip out to CA!

    Love! I always get overwhelmed by the Essie selection and can’t choose. I might have to look for this specifically.

    I love, love, love clambake. I don’t know if it’s the glossy texture or what but it’s the color that lasts the longest on me.

    love your blog! Essie’s Clambake IS the best summer color! Essie’s Geranium is also my go-to summer color!
