Primped And Polished


I have recently developed a slight obsession with Essie, it’s now the only nail polish I buy. All of their shades are fashion forward and come in a wide variety of colours. Whether you are looking for matte, shimmer or fun glitter they have it all. With other brands I find my nails tend to chip after a day or two so I was pleasantly surprised when I tried Essie for the first time, it lasted for days (around five) with virtually no chipping!  These polishes work best when used with their base and top coat. Also, if you are trying to go for the gel or shellac look I recommend applying two top coats after your colour, works like a charm! I wanted to share with you my favourite Essie shades for summer:

1. Blanc

2. Ballet Slippers

3. Chinchilly

4. The Girls Are Out

5. Play Date

6. Butler Please

What are your favourite Essie shades?

    I am actually wearing Ballet Slippers right now! It’s the only polish that I’ve used up and had to repurchase! It’s good for everyday and when you just don’t know what colour to wear!
