Essie | The Pastel Edit



Hello Lovelies!

I hope you are all having a brilliant Bank Holiday weekend! I am in complete chill out mode at the moment! This morning I was reorganizing my nail polishes, I just put all of my Essie polishes together for organisation and realised how pretty they all looked together so I thought I would talk about my favourites for Spring. 
So my three picks are Bikini So Teeny, Mint Candy Apple and Fiji. First off I just wanted to say how obsessed I am with Essie nail polish. I find them to be brilliant quality, they don't streak on me and I find that they last ages on my nails. They are on the pricier side but in my opinion they are definitely worth it! 

In Ireland the weather is (slowly) getting better so I have been trying to break out the brighter nail polishes for my fingernails  I have been so loyal to my Maxfactor Midnight Bronze the past couple of months but I am trying to add a little bit of variety! I have been obsessed with pastels lately! I love them in clothes, accessories and nails! I think that they are the perfect colours to wear during Spring and they look gorgeous with a little bit of a tan!

Bikini So Teeny
This polish was so hyped up all last Summer so when I spotted it on Fragrance Direct a couple of months ago I instantly ordered it. (For £1.99 may I add!) and to be honest I haven't really worn it much up until lately. I would describe it as a very light periwinkle blue with a slight shimmer to it. I think it is like the baby version of Lapis of Luxury which is a stronger blue. I think this is so nice with a tan, one of the more unusual nail colours that I own and whenever I wear it somebody always asks what it is! 

Mint Candy Apple
One of the most hyped nail polishes of all time, and rightly so in my opinion!  I think it is the most perfect mint "Tiffany box" colour ever. It looks lovely with a tan and it brightens up any look. I definitely think this is a more Spring/Summer nail polish and last year it was constantly on my nails. It's not to everyones taste but it is certainly to mine! Plus it has been worn by both Millie Mackintosh and Beyonce and if it's good enough for them! 

Fiji
I won't go into too much detail about this nail polish purely because I wrote a whole blog post on it last week which you can read here. I do really love this nail polish and it is one of the most recent additions to my Essie collection but has fast become one of my favourites! 

I hope you liked this sort of post. It was kind of one of those randomly planned ones, I put a picture up on Twitter of how pretty these three looked together and it kind of went from there! Let me know if you have any more pastel nail polish recommendations for me and I hope you all enjoy the rest of your long weekend!

  17. Love your blog!! anyway, I am not sure pastel color will suit me, since I have a medium skin tone, and my hand is kinda dark shade...but I love Essie Nail polish, I've been trying their other shade, and they are great!
