Essie Nail Polish Twinkle-Belle Duo Kit (£12.99)*
Hello lovelies! I'm very happy to finally show you this lovely little duo in all it's glory, now that my colour wheels have finally arrived. The days of stressing out trying to take pictures of my own hands are over! So I picked up this Essie duo as part of my birthday outfit for the St Enoch Centre magazine (see that post here). Mint is my favourite summer colour, by far, and I'd heard a few people recommend Essie's 'Mint Candy Apple' as a favourite. I was excited to try it, but even more so with this beautiful sparkly top coat, 'Sparkle on top'. The sparkles are silver with a mint tinted shine to them, and together they somehow remind me of a mermaid's tail (you know,because I see them all the time..). The top coat would go nicely over any summer shade, and similarly the Mint Candy Apple is gorgeous on it's own too. I've always been a fan of the Essie nail polish formula but, as you'd expect from any pastel shade, it takes about 3/4 coats to get a good, opaque coverage. When you add in the top coat, it's quite a timely exercise! I'd recommend tackling this duo when you have at least an hour that you can afford to go hands-free, because you will need the drying time! Trust me though, it's all worth it :)
Do you like this duo? What's your favourite Essie shade?
