I think this color is especially perfect for teachers. It is a nude color with just enough pigment to look like you did your nails. It is a flat color with no satin or sheen to it so when your nails chip (and if you're a teacher I promise they will!) you can barely tell. I'm a no fuss gal so when I paint my nails...I am not painting them again for at least two weeks. It goes with almost every outfit you wear and is still a professional color for the fall and winter. Essie is now sold at so many more locations, Target, Wal-mart, drugstores, and Ulta - so pick yours up today and keep your fingers looking chic!
