Hello and welcome to a new weekly nail feature. I wanted to start with what is possibly the shade of the summer – Chillato by Essie.
I picked this up in Washington on the last day of our holidays when we were trying to use up all of our pennies. We must have fed about 100 coins into the self-service till machine so apologies to those in the queue behind us!
Essie is my favourite nail brand and I was fairly restrained, only buying three bottles when we were away, but this shade is the winner. Part of their 2015 summer collection, Chillato has been constantly popping up on my Instagram and Bloglovin feeds and, as I am prone to falling for beauty blogger hype, I just had to try it out.
I would describe it as pistachio green and it just looks so clean, fresh and summery on the nails. I had a quick look through my nail hamper (yes, I have a hamper for my nail varnishes, let’s move on) and I don’t own anything like this. It took three layers to be completely opaque and looked amazing with a tan.
…just don’t do what I did and put in your make up bag without tightening the lid or, like me, you’ll end up with it all over your favourite lipstick! x
