Essie and Models Own Pastels

I know it's September, I know we are meant to be embracing the berry nails, the plums, the navy.... but no matter what time of year I will always go back to pastels at some point. They just brighten my day, ok.


It's been fairly bright out there anyway so my nails just aren't ready for the Autumnal tones just yet.

Recently I've rediscovered the much coveted Mint Candy Apple by Essie. It's a firm favourite of mine for sure, I love anything with a minty-turquoise hue to it.

I didn't want Essie to take centre stage this time so I combined it with Models Own Grape Juice and left MCA on the ring finger and I added some glitter in the form of Rimmel's Finishing Touch Glitter Top CoatI think it gives the mint nail a bit of a mermaid feel - and mermaids are about all year round ...probably 


I love how packed with glitter this top coat is, you only need one coat and your nails are good and covered! For £4.49, you can't go wrong really.
Lilac and mint is a lovely combination and it has a fresh feel on these bright chilly mornings. I like it anyway.


Anyone else still  wearing pastels?
