Essie - School of Hard Rocks

The latest polish to grace my nails is Essie School of Hard Rocks, a dusty blue/green (according to my limited adjectives and poor explaining capabilities) or a "midnight malachite" (according to Essie's website) for those of you who might know what the hell that means.

This is definitely a shade I will continue to wear multiple times throughout the coming months as it was a nice statement color that also blended well into other outfits on the days when I didn't feel like having such bold, attention grabbing nails (I can't count the number of times my nails have been painted some awesome color for one particular outfit but then have clashed horribly with any other normal, plain outfit I wanted to wear. Talk about a nailmare. Am I right, guys?!). Two very prettily polished thumbs up for School of Hard Rocks!
