My Valentine’s Day Nails

Valentine's Day Nails-min

Yes, I know that Valentine’s Day was yesterday but as I do not upload on Tuesdays you’ll have to read the post about my Valentine’s Day nails today… Actually, just think of it as a very early post in preparation for next year 😉

As you will know by now, if you have read my blog before, I am a pretty huge Essence fan. I have loads of their makeup and I also have quite a lot of their nail polish. I love having my nails painted but I am not the biggest fan of the cutting, filing and mess that comes with it.

For my Valentine’s Day nails, I decided to use 2 of the newest colours in my collection. I chose the shades 52 – Amazed by You and 48 – My Love Diary. I got My Love Diary in my Essence Advent calendar and I got Amazed by You from my mum for Christmas. After painting my nails, I painted them with the top coat. I used the Quick Dry Top Coat from Essence as well as the Essence Express Dry Drops.

I love the Essence nail polishes as they all have very good colour and stay on quite well. My nails are still passable even though I painted them 3 days ago. Okay, so technically they weren’t just for Valentine’s Day but I went with the timing! Let’s also just ignore how short and stubby my fingers are…thanks ha!

    I love, love, love Essence’s nail polishes! They are cruelty-free and so budget-friendly. I have never used the Express Dry Drops before, is it any good? I use The Gel Base Coat and Top Coat.
