When it comes to nail varnish shades I tend to be a bit boring. My collection seems to be full of different shades of grey, browns and beige’s, and other generally unoffensive neutral colours. Despite having already got hundreds of neutral shades I often find myself admiring others, insisting on the fact it is a completely different shade of grey, and of course I needed it. This of course happened when I came across Essie’s Cocktail Bling a few weeks ago.

I’m a big fan of Essie polishes, I think they are easy to apply, the colour applies well and it doesn’t chip for a good few days. There’s also a lovely large colour range, and if you’re a neutral lover like me, there’s a good range of neutral shades too! Cocktail Bling stood out to me as I was looking for a new grey shade, and all the ones that I could find were a bit too dark for my liking and Essie’s Cocktail Bling was the perfect light, neutral grey. I instantly fell in love with the colour, so much so that its the only nail varnish I applied for the best part of a month. I got some great compliments while I was wearing this as well, which isn’t something I usually get with my nail varnishes.

Once again I’ve fallen deeply in love with an Essie polish, I swear next time I buy one I’ll try to get something a bit more colourful..
