essie X Rankin Photo Shoot #essie

Remember back a little whilst ago when I shared the fact you could win the chance to have your photo taken by THE Rankin as part of the collaboration with essie? Yep, well the shoot for the winners just happened and I thought it would be a good time to share my own little snap as captured by the very famous photographer himself. 160404 ESSIE BTS 173160404 ESSIE BTS 372

The shoot itself was so much fun – getting hair and make-up done along with some of my favourite blogger friends (Lily Pebbles and Zoe London) and then having a moment in front of the camera where you have to try and nail a pose showing off your nails. Mine was a sort of ‘raahhrr’  my nails are fierce one…but of course I couldn’t resist cracking a smile.

Nail shade wise, I had to go for what is almost certainly my all time favourite essie shade – Mint Candy Apple. I wore it on my toes on my wedding day and it was the first minty one I really fell for. Of course I teamed it with a striped top – a go to for me if I know I’m having a photo taken!

I love the final shot – and even have a print of it to pop on the wall of my office! Is it odd to put a picture of my own face on the wall of my office?!

I hope the winners of the competition who got to have their photo taken had a fantastic time – Rankin was great. Really helped direct how to pose and made little old awkward me feel comfortable in front of the camera. In fact when it was over I wished it had gone on for longer!

Thank you Essie for inviting me to take part in this shoot! You can see more on the #essiexrankin (on Twitter & Instagram)

FYI This post is not sponsored. But I was a guest of essie at the photo shoot.

    What a great opportunity! I think if Rankin took a photo of me I would put it in my office too! x
