Essie Neo Whimsical Review
Essie do pink polishes so well and this is a firm favourite in my collection: this is a very pale pastel pink with a hint of lilac. So pretty and perfect for spring-summer. It is such a flattering shade on anyone and, although it looks quite girly, it actually feels very fresh and modern.
These photos show 2 fairly generous coats of polish, topped with Essie Good To Go topcoat (which I am desperately trying to like as much as Seche Vite… but I just don’t! I’m sorry!)
You can buy this polish HERE.
OPI You’re Such A Budapest
This sexy little beast is from OPI’s new Euro Centrale collection – OPI You’re Such A Budapest is a lovely lilac creme with a subtle shimmer that you can only see in bright sunlight.
I love that this is a beautiful mix between a pastel purple and a periwinkle blue, it’s something a bit different for spring/summer.
Also, I think this name is definitely one of my favourites of all the OPI puns!
You can buy this polish HERE. If you want to see the other polishes I have reviewed from this collection you can check them out here: Polka.com, Vant To Bite My Neck, I Saw…U Saw…We Saw…Warsaw, Eurso Euro and My Paprika Is Hotter Than Yours.
Model’s Own ‘Utopia’
Can we take a moment to appreciate just how beautiful Model’s Own ‘Utopia’ is? MY GOD. I originally bought this polish when Model’s Own were having their amazing sale months ago (you need to watch out for those as you can get some serious bargains) and I am really regretting not trying out this polish until now. It is so incredibly beautiful and I have wasted so much time when I could have been wearing it. *kicks self*
This is a soft, pale lilac-grey creme polish. It only needed two coats and this is topped with Seche Vite.
Jan 2016 EDIT: I have just found out from Model’s Own that this shade is now discontinued *wails*. So gutted. This is such an incredible shade and became one of my ;go-to’ colours when I couldnt decide what to wear. It went with everything and just looked really classy and chic on the nails. LUCKILY it reminds me a lot of OPI’s ‘Steady As She Rose‘, which is still available. PHEW.
Illamasqua ‘Wink’ Nail Varnish
This is my first Illamasqua nail polish and I think I chose very well!
Seventeen Pastel Gradient Nail Art
These were done using Seventeen Lasting Fix polishes in ‘Woo Me’ (lilac) and ‘Fairy Cake’ (baby pink). I love doing gradients, they are so fun. You can treat yourself to some Seventeen nail polishes HERE.
Plus, I am LOVING my new shape. My nails are making me so happy at the moment (I am sad, I know. Don’t mock me).
I did a tutorial for a gradient nail art manicure, which you can find HERE.
