Essie - to buy or not to buy

Essie nail polish - to buy or not to buy
available from Boots

So it would seem that this is the week for purple nail varnishes on my blog, however this particular polish is right at the other end of the colour spectrum to Topshop's Wisdom which I featured earlier this week. I purchased Essie's To Buy or Not To Buy at the start of Summer and it has been my go-to pastel polish all season. It is a gorgeous lilac creme with tiny flecks of blue and silver glitter suspended in the polish. Sadly this lovely duo-chrome that shimmers in the bottle doesn't translate once you have applied the polish to your nails. It would have made this nail varnish extra special if the duo-chrome was visible on the nails but as it happens, To Buy or not To Buy is still a very nice colour and is lovely to apply.

What are you favourite Essie polishes?

I currently have Essie's 'Bikini So Teeny' on my nails, it's a lovely blue, like a cornflower colour and when I look at it, it makes me smile!

This is such a lovely shade, it would be even prettier if the flecks were more visible on the nails but it's still gorgeous & really suits you <3 xo
