essie - bikini so teeny

Bikini so Teeny - £7.99

Essie nail polishes are highly raved about within the beauty blogging community, I first heard of them when literally everybody went mad for 'Mint Candy Apple'. Of course, I was drawn into the hype & when Essie released their diffusion line in Boots & Superdrug I soon snapped up my first, reluctantly paying the slightly scary price tag. I say it's scary, as the most I used to pay was £5, so almost £8 for a little glass jar of a pretty colour was a tiny bit off putting! However I have absolutely zero regrets spending the extra few pounds on Essie polish because I can't fault them. The consistency is smooth & creamy, it glides onto the nail so well, especially with the rounded brush, literally 3 strokes across the nail & voila! I can also get away with one coat & wear time is great, it rarely chips for me & can last around a week, even without a top coat! 

Bikini so Teeny is a cornflower blue, with a slight shimmer to it. I cannot get the true colour to show up on photos properly at all. How annoying! Although you can see the shimmer quite clearly in the bottle it doesn't really transfer to your nails as much. I love wearing this colour with a glitter accent nail, Models Own Disco Mix is a perfect combo in my opinion! I'm wearing it in this outfit post. A better picture can be seen on my Instagram web profile, here! As Christmas is approaching I'm also going to try out some nail art with this colour, perhaps using this as a base colour with tiny white snowflakes on top!

Lastly, I stumbled across Fragrance Direct which often have various shades of Essie, for only £1.99! Only yesterday I was browsing & noticed Bikini so Teeny was available for this price, sadly it's disappeared but I'm going to keep checking back as they update their colour range quite regularly.

If I wasn't such a poor student I know my Essie addiction would have spiralled out of control by now, have you tried Essie polishes? Which is your favourite shade!?

    Not like many diet plans in existence, these types of hypnotherapy don't last for years. If possible let your dietician review your journal. Intake of at least 8 glasses of water a day is one of the most efficient ways to detoxify your body.
