My Essie Nail Polish Haul & Swatches / DJ Play That Song, Resort Fling, Guchi Muchi Puchi & Mint Candy Apple


When I was younger, being a larger lady, I'd always miss out on grabbing bargains in Topshop, being plus size even 10 years ago meant I needed to be more creative with my outfits. I discovered Accessories. Now your average fashionista may think of jewellery and handbags and I do indeed have too many handbags and farrrrrr to much jewellery for every occasion but one " accessory " surpassed them all. That's right my sweethearts, Nail polishes :D

I STILL have yet to do a complete post on every nail varnish in my collection, I'm sure it pales in comparison to some but I think I have a rather healthy selection and today I'm excited to grow that collection by 4 with these 4 colours I got at the Professional Beauty Expo in London from the Essie stand at only £4.50 each!



Are these the magic words to kickstart my spring / summer? Yes, I do believe they are! I have loved the Brand Essie for some time now and I think I have maybe around 10?.. ish? *pauses to think* Yeah lets go with 10 ish haha. DJ Play That Song is a gorgeous vibrant plumb purple colour. It's eye catching and like the other 4 colours, will look amazing with a tan! Apply a white varnish and layer DJ Play That Song as a second coat to really make the colour pop! Resort Fling is this bright lovely peachy coral colour that everyone is loving at the moment. Orange and Coral lips are in this season so I'll be doubling up my lips with this gorgeous colour on my nails and toes! Guchi Muchi Puchi is a soft pink with just a hint of mauve tones. The colour is perfect for that sweet and flirty manicure that you want to stand out from the rest. A gorgeous pastel colour to complement your look this season! Mint Candy Apple is another pastel favorite and its not gone unnoticed for my collection. A beautiful true minty colour, light and creamy and perfect with any bold look to create a subtle softness!



What colours will you be rockin' on your nails this Spring / Summer?

  3. I had never tried Essie before until a recent event where I was given a little manicure - not only did it last for ages, but the colour was this pale purple grey and was so beautiful… I may need to get more. I noticed at Boots they were 3 for 2 the other day :) x
