ESSIE: Mint Candy Apple

Hi everyone, sorry the posts have been a bit thin on the ground, I have been really busy the past two weeks since my birthday with exams and assignment deadlines. It's been crazy to say the least!!
Anyway, I'm back with one of my favourite type of posts, nail polish!! 
I recently had a splurge on nail polish and have been working my way through them. Today I tried out mint candy apple by Essie. It is called mint but I would call it a pale duck egg blue. It took 3 coats to achieve the finish in the picture but if you were in a rush then two would be fine. I really love the colour as it is fresh and summery. 
I really recommend this colour and you can purchase it here for £7.99.

Thanks for reading!

Watermelon Nails!

Hi Everyone, 
I was feeling slightly creative today while painting my nails so I decided to attempt a watermelon design. It was really simple to do and I think it looks quite effective!

All you need is a bright pink polish, a pale lemon colour, a mint green and a black!

First give give all your nails two coats of pink
Then do a thick french tip with the yellow
Then do a thin tip with the mint green
Use a cocktail stick and black nail polish to create the spots

That's it! Simples!!
