Nail Polish/Care

Essence Very Berry Nail Polish

Today’s nails a  bit of a failure to be honest. The skin-tone on my hands has lightened considerably over the past few weeks rendering my favourite Summer polishes useless. I now have to dig through my mound of nail polishes to find some that will look look on my fairer skin.

Today I hadn’t the time of the inclination to undertake such a dig. I settled for a shade that has been in my collection for at least a year and that I have yet to wear – Very Berry by Essence.

Essence 03 Very Berry

Every time I glance at my hands I sigh, I actually hate this colour on me! In the bottle it looks like a berry shade but on my nails it looks cerise! As much as I hate pearly pink shades I hate cerise more. I have nothing against those colours, they just do nothing for me.

It cost about €2.50 so it’s no big deal but I really hate when I polish is an entirely different colour to what I expect from the bottle. I applied two coats over a base shade, with no top coat so I don’t expect it to last. That’s not such a bad thing today!

What nail polish are you wearing today?
