A Valentine’s Mani Monday: butter LONDON Come to Bed Red and Essie Sugar Daddy

A tale of two Product Girls on Valentine’s Day, via our mani choices. One single and the other approaching five years of marriage. Both polish lovers. Can’t get enough of cheeky product names, especially when they help tell a story. With that, here’s a very special edition of Mani Monday!

Butter LONDON’s Come to Bed Red is a cherry red that reminds me of cinnamon red hots. It’s a little spicy, and definitely a sexy shade. But what I love about it is that the name reminds me of one of my favorite songs ever, John Mayer’s Come Back to Bed. In my 365/24/7 fantasy, John Mayer is singing this to me. But fantasties? Are just that. I’ll be spending my Valentine’s Day with my adorable husband and Boston Terrier. He happens to be very aware and understanding of above obsession.

I’m coming off a long weekend in Florida with my girls and as soon as I touch down in Chicago I am heading to a hair appointment. I can’t think of any better way to spend the day! Girl time, hair appointment, wine – now that’s what I call love. As a single lady on this romantic holiday, I’ve chosen to wear Essie’s Sugar Daddy – a sheer, understated pink that doesn’t scream “I’M IN LOVE!”  And let’s be honest, what girl doesn’t secretly wish she had a sugar daddy every now and then? Sugar Daddy is a nice change-up from the bold reds and bright pinks I’m known to wear, I feel very grown-up and polished.

With love, Emily

What are you guys up to this Valentine’s Day? And what are you doing with your nails? Sexy red or demure pink?
