My Ultimate Summer Nail Polish Shade: Essie Fifth Avenue
You know you have a problem when people ask why you are repeatedly sporting the same nail colour. It's not a secret that I love Essie polishes and until I discovered L'Oreal polishes which I talked about here, Essie was the one and only brand I ever bought so you can imagine I have quite the collection. But there is one I shade I always go back and today I want to dedicate this entire (albeit short) post to it.
Despite offering a few miss shades, I generally find Essie polishes to be long lasting and I can wear some shades for about a week chip-free. And it is not any different with this gorgeous coral red colour, Fifth Avenue. I love all things red, and yes this polish is very bright, but it is also elegant and classy and if I may so, I think it looks really nice on my pale skin.
Fifth Avenue has been featured many times here on the blog and what can I say, I have yet to find a true red shade as gorgeous as this that works well for any season. Clearly a year round classic and one I gladly wear any time, nothing beats a coral red for a chic mani and, with the likes of Olivia Palermo wearing this on repeat too, you know you are doing something right.
Not only is this a key shade in your nail repertoire, coral red works fabulously with tanned skin (hello summer holidays soon in Algarve) and with just enough of an orange undertone to it, this is a colour that flatters every skin tone (no matter how pale you are because have you seen how white I am?!).
Bright red nails aren't for everyone but if you ever want to try red, I recommend this 100%. Whilst it may not be the cheapest offering on the high street, retailing at £7.99 at Boots (although sometimes cheaper on other websites), this season I am betting on striking red nails and thisstylish and creamy red orange blend lacquer does just the trick. This is one shade I will gladly be adding to my travel make-up bag. Imagine this on a beach, on one hand my sunglasses and on the other a cocktail...yes please!
