Since there is a holiday or celebration for just about anything these days, it makes complete sense to praise our current or forever favourite nail polish colour or formula on one specific day out of the year: June 1st! Founded and invented by everyone’s favourite drugstore brand: essie. While you ask yourself why June 1st, essie has a theory that this is the date where everyone is choosing to show off their pedi’s and mani’s at the beach or around the city! Tis’ the season to paint your nails a vibrant coral red, or a classic off white. Nonetheless, essie believes summer is when most people cater more to nail care.

This year you can join essie in celebrating the universal love of nail polish on National Nail Polish Day by sharing your manicures/pedicures, favorite shades, and or even some personal #essielove stories! Use #NationalNailPolishDay to share on social media.
