Essie Luxedo- Mani of the week

 I picked this up earlier in the summer here . This is a deep, deep purple that looks black unless it's in direct sunlight. I think it's a shade that would be universally flattering. I'm guessing the name is a play on tuxedo black. I don't believe certain colors should only be worn certain times but something about this color says sexy date night to me.  I'm wearing two coats in the pics above. It applied without any problems.

I fully intended to continue with shiny, poppy bright nails until summer ended, but I woke up this weekend to rain and a flat tire. Also, the kids in my neck of the woods are headed back to school so that means more traffic this week, and did I mention it was raining. So this week I decided to go with something a wee bit edgier.

A fresh manicure in a great shade and all is well with my soul [even if i don't sound like it ]  :).

Have a great week !


  1. Ooooooh, I am loving that color! It just looks Rich, if that makes any sense! Great choice!

  2. @Lisa-respect the shoes:
    Thank you. I know what you mean.I think it's the deepness of the color. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. This is a perfect color for fall and I’ve been looking to add some new colors to my collection. I need to check this one out…Need to make a CVS or Walgreens run!

  4. @ Katie Mac:

    I agree. I think it will be in heavy rotation for me. Let me know if you get Luxedo.

  5. That shade is darker than anything I would personally choose, but it looks great on your fingers! Well, I recently saw buzz about the crackle/shatter look so I was thinking about trying that. Are you planning on doing a feature of those polishes?

  6. @Peculiar Virtue:
    Thanks for the compliment!
    I think the shatter polishes are a good idea for a post :)
