| Top 5 Essie Nail Polishes! | 

There's nothing I love more than an evening of self-care filled with back to back Gilmore Girls episodes, a steamy bubble bath, a large cup of tea, maybe a sweet treat or two and of course a little nail painting session. Since I've stopped biting my nails I've been doing everything I can to look after them so they can be strong and healthy. Painting them with my favourite Essie polishes during my self-care evenings has played a major role in enabling me to break the habit so for today's post I'll be sharing my top five shades.  

Tart Deco is a fun coral shade for the Summer months, although I'd probably still wear it all year round because it's such a cheerful colour! It's one of those magical shades that makes your fingers appear elongated as well as enhancing a tan.  

Peach Daiquiri is the latest addition to my Essie collection and this bright hot pink shade is the brightest statement hue I own. It has strong red undertones so in low lighting it practically looks red, so if you're looking for a more wearable hot pink shade then this might be for you. I could get away with one coat of this shade but two coats make the colour more vibrant. 

When I'm not feeling brave I reach for a more subdued nude option and my recent favourite has been Eternal Optimist. The nude pink hue is classy, sophisticated and elegant, and in fact, it would be a beautiful bridal colour. 

Lilacism has been a long time favourite of mine! The pastel lilac shade is my favourite Spring nail polish! I find the formula of this particular shade a little runnier than some of the others in my collection so I find that it doesn't last as long - I can usually wear it for three days before it starts to chip whereas some of the others in my collection can last for at least five days. However, the light pastel shade is easy to wear and suits my wardrobe colour palette.

A shade that can be worn all year long is In Stitches, a deep red-pink shade with brown undertones. The shade is quite muted so it's appropriate for work or school wear. The formula of this shade is spot on, non-streaky, opaque in one coat and the wear time is excellent.
