Essie – Lion Around

a bit of a more muted essie polish from me today. after well and truly stocking up in the world of brights, corals and even hints of neons i was surprisingly enough drawn to this soft muted pearly pink colour. i have a few bright pinks and baby pinks but nothing in the pearl pink category.what i love about this colour is that its neutral whilst still being a colour. there are some days where i want just a neutral colour on my nails but you know me and neutrals i still need to sneak a bit of colour in there somewhere! even thought it is a soft peal colour it only needed a couple of coats to get a good opaque colour. the soft shimmer/peal finish to this nail varnish makes it a winner in my books.
