I am back on track, finally feeling better. The weather forecast is looking good as well – not the 30 degrees they had in Southern Germany and around Vienna but good enough 🙂
To get back into the blogging routine I start with some new nail polishes I acquired over the last couple of weeks. To start off with I show you the ones from Essie (and a great new hand balm I bought with one of them).
The hand balm is from “I love…” and I love their products as they always smell amazing. For my birthday last year I got a body lotion and a shower gel from one of my best friends and it smelled delicious. Unfortunately I cannot get their products here in Denmark but only in Germany. And in Sweden 🙂
I love the combination of the two colors. Are they not looking too pretty next to each other? The pink is called “Cute As A Button” and I bought it in Germany over Easter. It was 7,95 Euro and has of course the new brush, which I am absolutely in love with. Ever since I got it I was sad, that I had not gotten more colors for that price.
The mint one is called “Mint Candy Apple” – a color I also wanted to get for ages but as mentioned above I was too cheap to get them in Germany (I wanted to try the new brushes first, because before I did not like Essie too much). But we went to Malmö in Sweden the other day and things are way cheaper there (in general and the Swedish Kroner is weaker than the Danish one). So I got this nail polish for around 15% cheaper than I normally would have paid in Denmark. I was also delighted to see that they actually exchanged the brushes here as well – I saw some in Denmark where they had not done it yet and the old brushes are really not good :/
I tried Cute As A Button out the other day and loved it. It is WAY more bright than expected but after getting used to it I really liked it. For people who like the new coral colors trend – give this a try! I will try Mint Candy Apple next, possibly with a coat of something glittery on the ring finger. But this has to wait until later this week as I start my new job tomorrow and do not want to show up with something too fancy on my nails.
Which other Essie color can you recommend?
