Essie Bahama Mama
I've found my new favourite nail polish brand; Essie. After years of looking at the stand, admiring the vast array of nail polishes, and then walking on, I finally decided to try an Essie nail polish. What shade did I go for? Of course, I picked up Bahama Mama as it's the perfect shade for autumn and winter - a "warm, rich, creamy deep plum" is how this nail polish is described on the Essie website.
Essie nail polishes are slightly more expensive than the nail polishes I usually buy, but they're totally worth it! Before applying Bahama Mama I coat my nails with the Essie All in One Base (and I also put this on top of Bahama Mama) because I believe this helps to prolong the wear of the nail polish and prevent it from chipping. This nail polish has lasted longer than any other nail polishes that I've tried; I wore this for about eight days and it didn't chip at all - impressive stuff!
To make this nail polish more festive, you could add one of Essie's glitter nail polishes - such as Rock at the Top or Summit of Style - to one finger on each hand or layer the glitter nail polish over Bahama Mama. This is something I will be doing nearer to Christmas. What is your favourite Essie nail polish?
