In September last year I tried Shellac nails for the first time and fell in love with having my nails done…so much so I have had shellac ever since!I decided to have a break and do my nails myself and I am loving it so much more.

I have only just discovered the Essie nail polish brand (where have I been!) and love it. I wanted a nice warm rose nude/pink colour for winter and tried Eternal Optimist. So many people have commented on it. I found you needed at least two coats to get good coverage but, it wasn’t streaky at all. It did however take quite a while to dry. On the upside it lasted a good 4 days before I got my first chip and that was because I was cleaning!

If you would like to know my nail routine and the other products I use let me know and I will do a post/video about it.
