Essence Festival is a mood. For anyone traveling to New Orleans for the party with a purpose next week, be prepared to be consumed with excitement. You’ll find everything from the acts on the main stage to the food on Bourbon Street enticing. It’s undeniable. The energy in the Big Easy is pretty intoxicating. This is true for the beauty looks too. There’s a surplus vibrant hairdos and manicures in electrifying hues. Neon colors tend to stick out, so if standing out from the crowd is your goal, then try one of the pretty polishes ahead—but warning, these colors are festive and loud.
