To celebrate my first official Fourth of July as a New York resident (got my license last week!), I’m either going to the beach or the Highline to watch fireworks. But no holiday is complete in my book without a festive new nail color to go with. After giving it lots of thought I finally decided that Sapphire blue would be just right (enter Essie Midnight Cami). It’s dark enough to be a good staple in my fall nail polish lineup, but sparkly and upbeat enough to perfect for this mid-summer holiday. Stick to two or more coats (fewer is too royal blue) and Thomas Jefferson would be proud.
