Those who know me, or those who have ever looked at my nail polish collection, have gathered that I have a thing for Essie. And by thing, I mean I buy a new colour (or colours) monthly. Like lipstick, nail polish provides instant mood and confidence boosters, and there aren’t that many limits to the colours I’ll try and wear.
Essie’s new-for-South-Africa fall and winter range (it launched a while back in the US) is divine – my best are Style Cartel and The Perfect Cover Up. I foresee that nail polish will once again be one of my biggest mood and outfit-lifting accessories this winter.
From top to bottom:
style cartel – inky cobalt blue
the perfect cover up – powerful peacock teal
partner in crime – rich dark chocolate
dress to kilt – seductive red
fall in line – enigmatic jade green
