How long has it been since I posted nails on the blog, you ask? Let’s not talk about that. Let’s just say it is so long I am no longer entitled to call these type of posts nails of the week.
In fact, I’ll touch on it. Known for my ever colourful nails, I took what can be considered a sudden turn for the worst for a nail blogger: I fell in love again with plain reds and nudes.
Yes, there you have it. And is not limited to nude and red. Any simple, plain, block colour I will be all over.
So I bring you my latest in a string of nudes; the pretty essence I ❤ Trends “The Nudes” pure soul (o5).
This is a fabulous very light peach beige has very subtle pink shimmer undertones that are way too pretty. It is however, quite sheer by nature, so I needed four coats to reach a deeper colour.
As most light nail varnishes, it stains a bit on the first coat, less on the second than pretty much nothing from the third.
It dries pretty quickly (especially taking into consideration how many coats I used) and last well. You wouldn’t believe this nail polish is only £1.80. Yes, you heard it.
To finish the look off (and take the edge of the plainness), I added some cute essence nail stickers which cost only £1.30 (!!!).
These are met’ addict and it is basically a pack full (more than 65) of tiny and delicate rose gold outlines of classic shapes like hearts, rectangles, circles, chains, stars, triangles and others.
I put a double heart on my ring finger nail and a single one on my indicator.
So there you have it. Nails. breaking the dry spell. I hope to post more from time to time, but only if they have anything interesting.
And while I’m at it, I must confess I had never before tried essence products. Have to say I am rather impressed by the quality and the value for money.
Their range is superb, covering most corners of beauty and there will be popping up on the blog soon.
You can get essence in the UK at Wilko. This nail polish is part of their “The Trends” line and it is limited edition, once it’s gone, it’s truly gone.
