I can’t really believe that it’s been a year since the last round up, but here we are! If you want to see what made it into 2017’s favourites post you can read it HERE (spoiler, there may be some repeats as we all know I’m a creature of habit!) But let’s crack on with my 2018 favourites!

If you’re a fan of the way nail art looks but lack the time, patience, or skill for anything too complicated, this pink gradient manicure will be right up your street. Carry on reading for information on the beautiful Essie shades I chose for this pretty pink nail art.

It’s currently 6.30pm and it is still light outside. I left the house in a jacket (rather than my enormous winter coat) the other day. It’s apparently going to be 24 degrees in London on Thursday. I’m calling it: spring is finally here! I’m choosing to embrace the new season by updating my manicure and what better way to do that than a clashing spring pastels manicure?

Today I went outside and – for the first time in about two weeks – I didn’t feel like my extremities were going to fall off. It’s a miracle! I’m so ready for spring, but until we get there I’m still embracing the cool tones and colours of winter. So I’ve picked out my Essie favourites for winter/spring – the three colours I go back to time and again to help me through that awkward bit between the dramatic vampy winter shades and the fresh pastels of spring.
