The Perfect Spring Shades From Essie

The Sunday post with lots of Essie.

Hello everyone! I’m back (guess who’s back, back again, Our Dreams of Fashion is back, tell a friend… okay enough of that!). But, yes, I’m back to blogging after taking a much longer than expected break due to lots of Uni work and deadlines etc. During my blogging break, I was still reading and catching up on my fave blogs (when I wasn’t in the library… urgh.) Anyways, Becki from Beauty and the Brunette (go check out her amazing blog for all things beauty) brought my attention to Fragrance Direct. This gem of a discounted website has some incredible bargains, including Essie polishes for only £2.49 instead of the usual £7.99 retail price!  What an absolute bargain! So, naturally, I couldn’t say no to buying a few new shades…

Since spring is almost upon us (finally), I decided to invest in some gorgeous new shades that are perfect for that springtime manicure:

Left to Right:

Warm & Toasty Turtleneck:  Such a cute name for such a cute colour. A lovely greyish-lavender shade: this is the most perfect purple shade.

Take it Outside:  I’m all about the taupe this season. This taupe shade also has just the slightest hint of dusky lavender.

Mademoiselle: Okay, I’m not really a fan of pinky-neutral shades as I think they can look a bit too girly. However, Essie describe this shade as ‘the most-classic grown-up pink’ and it definitely got my attention. This shade definitely has that Parisian-chic vibe and it totally has converted me to neutral shades.

Parka Perfect: A beautiful muted-blue/grey shade with a hint of shimmer. A really unusual shade but it is definitely one of my favourite ever Essie shades!

Sew Psyched: Khaki green is everywhere this spring and I’m totally loving this colour trend. This is a gorgeous shade and perfect for the 70s trend. This colour is going straight on my nails when I finish this post!

  3. I'm ashamed to say that I've never actually tried an Essie nail polish... and I call myself a nail polish addict!! *hangs head in shame*. I love the look of Take It Outside though, I might just have to try it... x

  4. It took me ages to try Essie polishes too! They do apply like a dream and last for ages- I totally recommend them. Take it Outside is such a gorgeous shade and I would definitely check out Fragrance Direct because the £5.50 saving is difficult to resist! xo
