I’m a big fan of Essie polishes, they always have the best colour selections, and the formulas are hard to beat. Now that you can pick them up in Boots or Superdrug, my collection has grown to far larger than I would like to admit! For Spring and Summer, Essie have released a new range for Spring and Summer which is the most perfect mix of soft pastels, a nude and a punchy pink-red (stay tuned …)
The polish I’ve been wearing this week has been Truth or Flare, which is described as a vintage blue denim, and it’s the most beautiful cornflower blue with a slightly grey undertone. It’s such a great alternative to my regular ballerina pinks and nudes, and I’ve been wearing it with jeans and oversize grey cashmere sweaters, and so many people have been asking me what colour I’m wearing. To get the shade fully opaque, I used three thin coats, but it dried quickly and evenly with no bubbling. A topcoat of my beloved Dior Gel Topcoat has sealed the colour, and I’ve had it on for three days without a chip in sight!
The polish costs £7.99 and is available from Superdrug and Boots
