I love pink nails and the amount of pink nail polish I bought in the past to find the perfect pink for my skin one is just utter ridiculous (same story goes for finding my perfect nude nail polish). Everything looked perfect in the bottle, then you come home and it washes you out/makes you looked too tanned/makes you look stupid/makes you look grey and my favourite makes you look ill. Yep a nail polish can make you look ill. Happened to me numerous times!
Enter Essie Eternal Optimist; I picked this up randomly in Boots 2 years ago and have been in love with it ever since. Its perfect for my skin tone! I like this polish so much that we have 2 bottles of this in my household (the first one was
stolen borrowed by Nigar as she usually does and I just had to buy a replacement because I loved it so much). It's a cream finish and Essie nail polishes are generally really high quality and apply nicely. I've had it on my nails for about 5 days now and it has lasted very well by my standards! Minimal wearing at the tips and still on. These photos are from yesterday.
The accent nails are Barry M Majestic- My ultimate favourite polish; although I do hate removing it as it takes ages due to being a textured glitter polish. See how it sparkles?!
Essie nail polishes can be picked up for £7.99 from Boots and Superdrug. Liberty's and Space NK also sells them for £10.95 although I have no idea why the price hike so I won't link them. They tend to appear on Fragrance Direct every now and then as bargain and can typically be found on Ebay for less then £5.00
What is the one colour (or colours) that you've spent a lot of time/effort/money searching for?
