Peachy nails

I usually don't have my nails painted as I work every weekend (where they don't allow nail varnish!) and I don't feel there's much point in having my nails done for just five days and then having to take it all off on a Friday night. This weekend, however, I'm not working as it's my buuurfday, so I decided to make the most of being allowed painted nails. I wanted a spring-inspired nail colour and thought that my Bourjois polish in Apricot would be a good choice. What I will say though is that Bourjois nail varnishes are crap. They stay on for about a day - that's with two topcoats on too - before peeling right off. Don't waste your money on them, I'm telling you now!

A couple of years ago, I got one of the No.7 "Stay Perfect" polishes in a shimmery-glittery pale pink colour so I decided to put that over the Apricot colour in the hopes of getting it to last longer (which failed) but also to give it a nicer finish. The "Stay Perfect" range is so great. It really does stay perfect and I love the subtle colours they come in. Sadly, the one I have doesn't have a name on it, but I've done a bit of hunting online and I think they've discontinued it.

(Love the webcam quality, yo)

Quick shout to anyone who's reading this; are Essie polishes worth the money? I don't actually own any but I'm thinking of getting some. Any colour recommendations?

  1. You know my answer anyway and YES. ABSOLUTELY YES. Don't get any of the lighter pink shades as they don't show up very well - I love all of the rest of my colours (range from pinks, greens, oranges and blues!) xxxxx
