I have been using Mademoiselle for over 25 years! Loyalty to Essie's Mademoiselle, to say the least. Not only is this color so flattering to my skin tone on my hands, but my nails always look classy, neat, and well "polished". Over the years I have been asked what color I am wearing many , many times. I get compliments galore. I now live in Sarasota, Florida (for the last seven years). I started using Essie at my salon in New York City. Unfortunately Essie nail polishes are not used at the local salons here in Sarasota, they foolishly use other brands. I always, always, bring my own bottle of Mademoiselle with me to the nail salon. Every, yes every time, someone will ask me what color and brand polish is on my nails. I treat myself to a weekly manicure always. I will never use anything but my Essie Mademoiselle.My nails always look perfect, and Essie never chips nor fades, that is why I am so addicted to Mademoiselle. I am so happy that I can purchase Essie at any number of local drug and beauty supply stores. Essie, Mademoiselle, I never will leave my house without my bottle in my purse. I really do believe that Mademoiselle is the shade that is elegance and refinement in a bottle!
