There’s nothing to get you in the spirit of a new season quite like the launch of a gorgeous nail polish collection from Essie. This autumn (or fall if you’re American) feast your eyes on the trendiest hues to send you into the cooler weather in style.
‘I spy with my fashionable eye, a seductive new Partner in Crime. Mysterious and alluring, she knows exactly how to Dress to Kilt. My sources in the Style Cartel tell me that this season, shades with a splash of intrigue are The Perfect Cover Up. Oh, you beg to differ? Well, darling, you’d be wise to Fall in Line or we’ll just have to Take it Outside.’
There are are six shades in this limited edition collection (R124,95 each).
♥ Style Cartel ♥ Take it Outside ♥ The Perfect Cover Up
♥ Dress to Kilt ♥ Fall in Line ♥ Partner in Crime
Take a look at my three favourites below, as well as two nail care products that’ll really seal the deal with your mani or pedi.
Prep and Perfect Nails
If you want your nails to last, and look as good as possible, there’s just no compromise when it comes to applying a base coat before your colour and a top coat afterwards. I love the smooth finish of this one from Essie and the top coat provides the most gorgeous, glossy shine on my nails.
Tip If you’re really in a hurry and using a paler colour, you get get by without a base coat but don’t make the mistake of skipping this important step when using dark hues on your nails like reds and blues. You’ll end up with stained nails that’ll take days to recover!
