Turquoise and Caicos via Essie

 It's hard to believe it's February when it's in the 70s and the palm trees are swaying here in South Texas.  It definitely feels very carribbean around here, but since I can't quite enjoy those turquoise waters, I did the next best thing : a mani using Essie's Turquoise and Caicos. 
It's a very fun color, and with all the pastels hitting the runway, it's an inexpensive way to get into that trend.  You know I am a big fan of Essie's beach inspired hues as seen here and of their nice selection of summer shades as seen here.   An since it's a holiday weekend and all, I thought I would channel a holiday state of mind with a little carribbean color.  
How do you channel a holiday state of mind?

very pretty color, laura. even though i don't wear color these days (unless you count my lavender hair, ha) but milky aquas lift my spirits, especially now that i am no longer literally surrounded by my favorite "caribbean blue" oceanic hues.
i suppose i get into that state of mind by using turquoise in my paintings.

I would buy that color in a heartbeat. Love it so much. I'm a fan of all shades of blue on my nails. It does look very tropical in your pictures. :)
