This week's manicure is brought to you by the Walgreen's in Town Center Plaza, Leawood, Kansas! I'm a California girl, but I was in KS last weekend for my boyfriend's sister's wedding. I missed the manicure I was supposed to attend with the bridal party, so I ran into the nearest drugstore and grabbed a bottle of polish from one of my favorite brands, Essie.

Essie Nail Lacquer in Russian Roulette($8) is a bright red cream with orange undertones. It's not a spectacularly unique shade, but I thought it would go well with my retro-inspired dress from Stop Staring Clothing. My dress is slightly above-the-knee, but the website seems to only be selling this longer version currently. You get the idea:

I paired this dress with nude, peep-toe wedges to keep the look summery. I was in such a rush to get ready that I smeared polish on my hands, as evidenced in the picture. I also only painted my first three toenails since they were the only ones visible in the peep-toes!

After I cleaned up the mess I made of my hands, Essie Nail Lacquer in Russian Roulette finished off my look quite well. The shade is nothing earth-shattering, but it is a great, reliable retro red. I will definitely be pulling this one out whenever red nails are needed, or if I get a chance to wear my Stop Staring dress again!
