The muted nail trend is one of my absolute favourites – I’m a huge fan of anything grey-toned and am always looking for nail varnish that puts a different spin on the typically season-appropriate colours. Spring is usually when people unpack their pastels, maybe a few brights, perhaps some nudes. So I’ve picked some beautiful Morgan Taylor polishes that are unusual takes on the more traditional colours.

I have been obsessed with nail varnish for such a long time and I still get a little flurry of excitement when I discover a new brand or formula. But when I first stumbled across Floss Gloss I knew it was going to be a company to watch. Their Instagram account is bright, bold, and a little bit filthy – what more do you need?

You will all know by now that Essie are my favourite nail varnish brand. I love everything about them: the formula, the longevity, the colours. On top of this, I’m a sucker for anything limited edition. So the Essie Retro Revival 2017 collection was bound to catch my eye…

Party season is truly over: I never want to look at another Quality Street ever again, I can’t face the thought of any more alcohol, and it’s really flipping cold. After the OTT glamour of the festive season – all gaudy golds, rich luxurious reds and cosy greens –  I feel like I need a bit of a colour palette cleanser before I get into the pretty bright pastels of spring/summer. If you’re the same then you will be as enamoured with the Essie Gel Couture Ballet Nudes collection as I am.

P.S. There’s a chance to win two of the shades at the bottom of this blog post…!

You should all know by now that I’m a total Essie addict. They’re my favourite nail polishes by far: great colours, long-lasting and quick drying….what more could you need? I’ve been playing around with the new Essie Winter 2016 collection* and it’s pretty flipping Christmassy.

A quick update: Instead of ‘monthly favourites’ I’m going to shift to ‘current favourites’ to give me a bit more freedom with how often I can do them. Today’s video includes some autumn-appropriate make up, volumising luxury haircare, a brand new nail varnish, an unexpected fragrance and some great TV programme recommendations for you. I hope you enjoy my current favourites #1!

You all know that I’m a huge Essie fan but this collection… be still my beating heart! As soon as I heard that the Essie Fall Collection 2016 had taken Tokyo as its inspiration I was already over the moon, but then I saw the pictures. And I’m happy to tell you that this is – by far – my favourite collection from them.
