Monday Must-Have: Fall for nails…

After years of painting my nails in rotation, one colour off, another on, I haven’t painted them at all since I had Bea. I could find time, but I wonder how they would stand up to the constant hand washing I now do and half of me almost feels like gaudy nails don’t fit against her perfect brand new skin. However, I’m starting to crave seasonal rich jewel like tones, muddy autumnal shades and new textures like this leather effect polish. Here are some of the colours I’m coveting right now…


Ciate Fashionista Sister (Black Purple shimmer) // Essie Wrapped in Rubies // Topshop Nail polish in Exhibit
Essie Snake it up Snake effect metallic blue/grey // Topshop Matte metallic nails in Scream // Nails Inc Alexa (Black) Leather polish
Nails Inc Fouberts Place // Deborah Lippmann Laughin’ to the bank // Essie Armed and Ready

What nail colour are you wearing or wanting right now?

PS I love how unexpected the khaki looks. I’ve never gone for green before but I’m really into it right now.

Spotted: Essie in the Beauty Aisles

This morning I had to give a new find of mine a shout out… Essie nail polishes are now available in your local Boots, Superdrug, Debenhams and even John Lewis! This might not come as news to many of you and my apologies for appearing a little behind the times. Although an avid shopper, I rarely bother with Beauty Stores or spend much time in Beauty departments, apart from at the specific cosmetics counters that I like. I’d never make a Beauty blogger! Previously a salon-only brand, a few months back, Essie headed into high street stores and has stormed to the top of my favourite nail brands!

I absolutely LOVE the fact that there is such a huge range of colours, including many fashion and trend led shades – their range of blues and greens right now is second to none. I treated myself (and here’s the second thing to love,) for a very reasonable £7.99 to Lapiz of Luxury, a lovely cornflower blue and have been wearing it since last Friday. So far I’ve given it some real welly, scrabbling around setting up the Dream. Find. Do. shoot yesterday and at the weekend I helped my friend with some party planning that involved a fair bit of washing up, after heading to the allotment for a few hours. Believe it or not, it’s still chip free! 🙂

The current collection is the mirror metallics after a particularly ice-creamy selection of seaside shades earlier this season. Snap up a metallic and you’ll be ready equipped for the coming season – metallics are going to be HUGE in AW12.

So, have you worn Essie and what’s your favourite colour… I’m always in the market for a new shade 😉

Love,
Rebecca
