Winter is well and truly here – my new woollen coat is a daily wear and my gloves make several appearances a week. On my nails I’ve swapped out red for burgundy and pastels and brights for deep and dark colours.
I have a bit of a love-hate relationship with Essie. I love the colours but I don’t always love the formula. The dark colours are gorgeous but pastels can be a hit and miss – which is such a shame because the selection of pastel colours is gorgeous! With that in mind, I find Essie is a brilliant nail polish brand for winter.
After School Boy Blazer is the perfect dark navy blue. The Perfect Cover Up is one of the most unique colours I’ve ever seen, I don’t even know how to describe it. It’s kind of a deep navy teal. Stylenomics is a stunning deep forest green. I just bought it recently – I’d been looking for something like it for months! Chinchilly is an Essie collection staple – it’s a wintery grey with a slight purple undertone. Skirting the Issue is a burgundy red – it’s a little lighter than I usually like my winter reds but it’s gorgeous all the same.
If you’re interested I buy most of my Essie nail polishes from Farmers.
