Let me introduce you to my new lacquer love. A few days ago I was faced with the new Essie Madison Ave-hue spring 2013 collection in Boots and boy was it tough to pick just one colour (it’s a hard life, isn't it?). I had my eye on Hip-anema, Bond With Whomever, and Go Ginza but in the end I plumped for Maximillian Strasse Her and I’m glad I did.
This is such an unusual polish which looks grey in natural daylight yet leans to more of a green hue under artificial lighting. As with all Essie diffusion line colours application is a dream - this colour required two coats which went on really smoothly.
I also used the Nails Inc Kensington Caviar Gel Effect Plumping Top Coat which is apparently loaded with ‘Triple Polymer Technology’ to seal my polish and... it’s love! Whilst I wouldn't go as far as to say my nails look ‘plumped’, they are certainly super glossy and almost look gel-like which is good enough for me.
Have you got your eye on any colours from the Essie spring '13 collection?
