One Day Without Blues



Today is One Day Without Shoes, a campaign started by TOMS Shoes to raise awareness of the millions of children, growing up without shoes and therefore at risk for disease and infection.  To support this project, essie cosmetics joined forces with TOMS by creating this nail polish, aptly named "one day without blues" and no doubt helping everyone to go barefoot in style. I haven't been able to get my hands (or toes) on a bottle of this yet...but that didn't stop me from primping for today. Yesterday, I had a date with my favorite power couple:

{a combo of sugar daddy + mademoiselle for my hands}
{topped off with a cocktail of peach daiquiri for my toes}

Are you going barefoot today?

  5. I wish I could go barefoot...probably another boots day..ugh! But love Essie and use their products all the time, is the purple a new touch? Either it is and I am very astute or a total ditz for not realizing it sooner..lol. Thanks for making us aware of this wonderful cause. Love your "power couple".....

  6. I just put this on my toes.. It came in a Spring kit I bought and I thought it would be a fun change from what I normally wear. I would like to get a pair of Toms wedges for Spring! LOVE the purple background.... such a nice surprise. xo

  10. Not quite, but in open toe shoes, so it almost counts ;) Have mademoiselle on my hands, and "India love with you" (HOT pink) on my toes...

  11. I could have gone barefoot here on Sunday (80 degrees), but today it's back down to 40 degrees and unfortunately I have to go in a retail establishment where I think shoes are required. What a great cause though. My daughter would love that blue. I'm loving your peach daiquiri!

    Oh, and I love your new look - that extra bit of purple and the Greek key are perfect!

  15. I wish I could go barefoot but there's still snow here. I like the blue, might have to try it this summer but for now I'm more of a French manicure sort of gal...low key.

  19. First thing first....LOVE the updated look!!!!!!!! Perfection!!

    Second, my toes are definitely peeking out today....Essie Watermelon is my go to "toe" color!

    Love TOMS, their mission and all they do. Wanting some of their new wedges....as the only flats you'll usually seem me in are flip flops!

    Mwah!!!! xoxo

  24. This is so smart and fun! Showing off those painted to nails is a must if you're going barefoot for charity. And the new layout is fantastic!

  25. Yes- I happen to be barefoot today and loving it! I'm wearing Essie alligator purse but will gladly change to peach daiquiri once this rain stops!

  26. LOVE the new look, Sue! It's fantastic!

    And I just love that blue. I'll have to try to get my hands on it. I'm just wearing lollipop on fingers and toes right now. Loving the peach daiquiri. I'm in such a peach mood lately. Think I'll have to do this next pedi :) xoxo

  28. I love every single one of these colors!!! On one of the recent Ooh La Frou Frou posts, one of the girls painted her nails in an Essie color ... it was a lavender called "French Affair." Just love the names of nail polishes! Thanks, darling, for leaving a comment at Ooh La Frou Frou. A response is always left in comments and one awaits you for next time you're by. Just followed your lovely blog! So nice to meet you ;)

  30. I am barefoot right now - wiggling my red toe nails and thinking of all those little tootsies out there who are walking around without shoes.
    As a mother I know just how miserable little feet are when they are cold, sore or generally in need of some comfy socks and shoes. I learned early on that when I feel sad I instantly feel better after I put socks on. Isn't it strange..? But there is some real comfort in covering ones feet isn't there.

    Thank you for bringing this to our attention Sue.

    Big hugs

    xx Charlotta
