Essie Obsessed

One thing I love about summer is getting to wear more colourful nail varnishes. I am completely obsessed with Essie and their new Summer 2014 collection. They are just amazing and I am already picturing what outfits I can wear them with. I have to admit I occasionally bite my nails due to a stressful day in work and I regret it every single time, as well as feeling that  utter disappointment in myself I have to look at them for at least a week before they look in anyway presentable again. Nothing worse than unkempt nails! I find it much easier to keep my nails if they are painted, I suppose why would you ruin them if they look pretty.I really think nails can take away from an outfit. You could be head to toe in designer gear and if you have neglected your hands or feet the outfit automatically turns grubby and unattractive,maybe I am being slightly dramatic, but I don't think it can be argued! Talking as an occasional nail biter I know the above is true.

Every girl knows that nails are a simple way of completing an outfit and showing off your jewelry. I also think that wearing bright colours like the below look even better with a glow. As the sun is yet to arrive in Ireland I have recently been wearing some tan on my hands to show off the colourful polishes on my nails. The one I find easiest is Rimmel Sun Shimmer, I use medium shimmer and find that this best suits my skin tone. It is easily applied and is also found on offer quite regularly which is great, it gives you the natural glow that everyone wants and not the fluorescent orange streaky look everyone wants to avoid.

Avenue Maintain

 I have found it hard to locate Essie polishes in Ireland and most of the places that do have them they are €15 while they can be bought through the Essie website for a lot less, the problem is they don't ship to Ireland. #firstworldproblems. I am determined to get my hands on the newest range. In the meantime this is what Essie Avenue Maintain looks like. A little weekday pick me up to me from me!

 I went to 5th Avenue on Wicklow Street, Dublin 2, their mini mani is only €10 and is a great little treat. I have been a few times to this salon and find that the girls are very good. I am yet to try the salon for a pedicure but when I do I will let you know how I get on. Look after your nails girls!


Hope you enjoy and thanks for reading.

Love BB xx
