Sometimes, I like to pretend I'm a sophisticated French woman who has it all together and always looks perfectly disheveled but still soigné.
Spoiler alert--it takes a lot of pretending. Thankfully, I've got a bottle of Essie's Headmistress to help out. It's a glossy red that's neither too dark nor too cherry-bright, so it's just right for fall.
Of course, it doesn't really keep me from immediately smudging and chipping it--but those just make my manicure look that much cooler. (That's what I'm telling myself and I'm sticking to it.)
