Here is Essie’s ‘Cocktail Bling’ nail varnish – I go through colourful, bright phases and the times where I want a more neutral, dull palette. When I mean dull or neutral, I’m speaking grey, toned down blues/turquoises/berries and then the nudes.
I wanted a new colour that will go with anything and not be too outstanding. This is a perfect grey shade, which has a slight blue undertone/tint to it – it’s my ‘slap on’/’go to’ nail polish – I love it!

I absolutely adore Essie Nail Varnishes, although they’re £7.99 each I wouldn’t usually pay that for nail varnish as I buy so many – but Essie are definitely worth it! I can go on holiday to Florida, put this on before I leave and one and a half weeks later, I still have a few small chips on three nails!
I had this in Boots when the cosmetics were 3 For 2, but I recently went onto Fragrance Direct for a quick browse and I found that they have at least 25 colours on there now and this is in there – all a crazy £2.25 each!!! (Instead of £7.99 each in Boots).
You can find these on Fragrance Direct: HERE

I have bought many products from Fragrance Direct and I would definitely, definitely recommend them to everyone! They have so many brands, which are about 70% cheaper than Boots, Superdrug..


Although I wanted a darker, more dull shade on my nails – the weather turned for the worse. Coincidence? Hey, I live in Wales..DSC00204
