Ready to Nail Mercury’s Retrograde
Image source: Essie Twitter
Every few months, I get an ominous warning from my friend Kate of bad things to come because Mercury is in retrograde. I have to admit that I didn’t even know what it meant that Mercury was in retrograde until a few years ago when I finally Googled it after one of Kate’s planetary alerts. And even after that, I was a bit skeptical that it really did anything to affect me.
But with Mercury’s latest retrograde, I have noticed that things have definitely been on the fritz. Mercury is the god of communication, travel, technology and intellectual thoughts. So when Mercury is in reverse motion, these things are also in reverse. Maybe that explains why the MBTA has been a nightmare lately and technology has not been on my side…
To help get us through Mercury in retrograde, Essie released a new collection that features celestial shades. “Keep Calm…” and “…& Mercury On” remind us that Mercury’s retrograde will only last a couple of weeks and we hopefully will come out on the other side unscathed and with pretty, shimmery nails to boot!
Slick a few coats on your nails, so when things start to go to sh*t, you can look at your manicure, take a deep breath and carry on.
