Essie 'Watermelon'

Afternoon Lovelies...

I'm just writing this quick post about a new polish I purchased at duty free in Tenerife. As we had time to spare before our flight we wondered round the duty free to see if there was anything worthy to spend my last euros on. That's when I found this little beauty...

When looking at the Essie stands I always feel overwhelmed and never know what colour to buy. But after seeing Gem's instagram photo (go see her lovely blog HERE) of her holiday nails using this colour I knew I had to have it.

Although I know Summer is quite obviously over, has it been freezing cold everywhere in the country? I still love to wear bright colours. It is a cherry pink/red colour with a shiny finish.
The one thing I love about Essie polishes (and I'm not sure if this was recently changed?) is the wide brush which means it only takes 1-2 strokes to cover your entire nail. Plus with this colour you can get away with only 1 coat which is nice when your in a rush to paint your nails.

I can't recommend Essie nail polishes enough and urge people to at least purchase 1 Essie nail polishes for your collection. I am going to be purchasing more in the future. What are your favourite Essie shades? Has anyone got any good recommendations for my next purchase?
Essie polishes are available from larger Boots and Superdrug stores or online for £7.99.
