Daisybutter - UK Style and Fashion Blog: nail varnish, essie cocktail bling, notd, summer nails
Essie Cocktail Bling, £7.99. Available in Boots and Superdrug nationwide.

Today's challenge: how many words can Michelle write about the latest nail polish push in her ever-expanding collection? Challenge… accepted.

My current lacquer obsession reigns in the form of Essie. I've never been a stickler for nail polish labels if I'm honest, flitting from brand to brand in search of my perfect seasonal hue that I won't want to switch out for a while. (We'll forget about my bi-weekly 'must do' self-manicures for the purposes of this post.)

Enter Essie's Cocktail Bling, a muted smokey charcoal blue. Buy one get one half price at Boots got me hard with their Essie diffusion range - more on that at a later date. This shade is the perfect balance of blue, grey, lavender and something extra. Whilst not a traditionally spring/summer shade, there's something so chic about a blue nail amongst the pinky corals and tomato reds. It applies like a dream with a hi-shine finish, although I do drop some Sally Hansen top coat on top because my nails are prone to chipping. 

Challenge complete: 153 words. Notes from the editor: Must try harder.

  6. That's quite a nice shade that will look good in any season! I like Essie's "Bikini So Tiny" for summer.
