A ready for summer colour

Wednesday, 7 September 2016

There is something about a new Essie Nail polish that makes me so extremely happy! I have always loved the way the nail polish comes out. The bottle is simple but elegant and the colour always looks fantastic. Personally, Essie nail polish always lasts longer on my busy nails than other brands which is great.

The newest addition to my Essie collection is an electric blue shade called ‘chills and thrills’. I have been searching for the right blue and this one automatically caught my eye. Today, I decided to try this colour.

I am not a fan of very long nails, they just are not practical for me. So after preparing my nails to the right length and shape, I painted them this fantastic colour.

The pigment in the nail polish was so strong that if I wasn’t a manicure snob, I would not even need a second coat. The second coat, however, just confirmed the beauty of this colour. I decided to accessorise my nails with some white chevron strips and dots.

What I am loving about this colour is that although it is an electric blue shade, it has a lilac tinge to it which makes it feel a bit mysterious. Is it blue, is it purple? Who knows, but I know that ‘chills and thrills’ will certainly be one of my go-to colours for summer!
