I only painted my nails a couple of days ago but never to be one to keep a nail colour for long I removed my new Disco Fever polish and went for a different colour entirely. It's the complete opposite almost, going from a bright magenta to a bluey-grey. I think the lovely British weather may have influenced me somewhat.
Essie's Cocktail Bling is one of my favourites and is one of my more subtle blue toned polishes. I usually love wearing it. It's one of Essies polishes that doesn't need to be coated over and over for a good finish (I'm looking at you Fiji!)
However, I painted my nails and immediately thought 'naa, not feeling it' but rather than removing it (waste not, want not) I dug out one of my trusty Nail Art Pens courtesy of Models Own and drew a criss-cross pattern on my ring finger.
It was only while looking up the colour on the website when I came to write this review (I was too lazy to get up and get the pen -judge me if you will) and I discovered that the tip can be flipped over and has a thin brush...which would have made my criss cross much neater and easier. It's a tad on the wobbly side! Oh well lesson learnt for next time! Now I know this I might do the whole hand!
