So yesterday I was extolling the virtues of my newest Essie manicure, so I thought it was only right to do the same for my pedi too! I’m a little obsessed with The Perfect Cover Up, which is one of the new shades in Essie’s Fall Collection.
Like all of the polishes in the range, it’s inspired by crime, and it’s the most beautiful inky forest green. When the weather starts to turn, I dig out all my darker polishes. I think they just look so pulled together, but I sometimes tire of just plain black. That’s where colours like The Perfect Cover Up come in. On my nails it looks almost black, but when the light hits it, you get a subtle flash of green. It’s absolutely stunning, and it looks as amazing as a pedicure as it does on short, filed nails. I can’t get over how great the formula is with all of Essie’s new releases. It’s perfectly creamy when applied, and you could easily get away with only wearing one coat if you’re in a rush! For the swatches, I’ve used two, and it dries to a perfect opaque with a super glossy finish.
The polish costs £7.99 and is available from Boots
