Recent purchases: Essie

The Essie diffusion line recently hit the shelves at Boots and Superdrug and I couldn’t be happier, Essie is definitely one of my absolute favourite nail brands. The combination of shade range, quality, names of the polishes and the style of the bottle just works. Plus, even better than being on sale in Superdrug/Boots – they’re on 3 for 2 in Superdrug… cue spending spree.

I picked up two colour polishes and a new nourishing base coat. The colours I chose are Masterplan and Cure as a Button. I do love a good murky grey and I’ve wanted Cute as a Button (which looks brighter red than it is in real life here – it’s a bright coral-ish pink) for ages – I also wanted to pick up Lilacism, but it was out of stock. I spotted it in stock in Boots the following day, but decided against buying there as they didn’t have the same promotion going on. But they have stock on line, so tempted to order – but then worried I’ll exhaust my picks from the range we have here…so I’m hoping there will be new shades released too!
Have you picked up any of the diffusion line Essie yet? Is so….what shades? Go on…tempt me!
Essie is available online from Superdrug (£7.99)

Bought by me.

    I’ve never heard of Masterplan before, but I do like it! The one I want these days is Sand Tropez 🙂

    Those colours are so pretty, i’ve been looking at cute as a button for a while, but when i was in the shop something just drew me to fifth avenue.
