Essie Cute as a Button and Play Date

SAM_2068
These are the first Essie polishes I have bought. I always thought they were a bit expensive for nail polish, even though I adore the amazing bright colours in the range.

I finally took the plunge and went for these stunning polishes:

Cute as a Button is an adorable, vibrant coral colour. It’s absolutely perfect for Spring and Summer and it’s really versatile.

Play Date is a deep lilac. I don’t think you can go far wrong with lilac, it looks great on everyone.

I’m so impressed with the quality of these polishes. They are super easy to apply as they have nice, wide, flexible brushes. The polishes are fast drying and really pigmented. Just two coats will give you a deep, even colour. I’ve also found the polishes to be quite long lasting. They don’t seem to chip very easily, which is a miracle for me.

Essie has the most amazing range of bright colourcoloured polishes, so I will definitely be looking at getting more now!

July 2014 Favourites

SAM_2073

I’m a little bit late on favourites this month, so apologies for that, and without further ado, here’s what I have been loving through this lovely warm July we’ve had in England!

Midi rings – I know I’m really late to the party with this one, but I spotted these adorable little midi rings in Dorothy Perkins the other day and I decided to take the plunge. I’m not sure why, but I think they are a super cute edition to a Summer outfit and I love how delicate and feminine they look.

Revlon Highlighting Palette in Rose Gold – I didn’t think anything could drag me away from my beloved L’Oreal True Match blush in True Rose, but I’ve been reaching for this more and more recently. I intend to write a full post on it shortly. It adds a beautiful shimmer to your cheek bones, and it has a little pop of rosy colour which gives a beautiful healthy glow to the cheeks. I find it works perfectly well by itself and I don’t need to use blusher with it.

Clinique Age Defense BB Cream – Since the weather has been warmer, I’ve been using this lots instead of foundation. It gives a really light, healthy, natural look.

Mac All Fired Up lipstick – I’ve pretty much fallen in love with this lipstick. It is one of the best quality lipsticks I’ve ever had; I can eat and drink and still barely need to reapply. It doesn’t smudge or bleed, even though it’s a dark, vibrant colour. It doesn’t need a lipliner and is super easy to apply so its perfect for Summer wear.

Essie Cute as a Button nail polish – I bought my first Essie polishes the other day and I’ve been really enjoying them. Cute as a Button (adorable name) is my favourite so far. It’s the perfect Summer coral colour. It’s really good quality and long lasting.
