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.
