Happy Thursday friends! I had hoped to show you my new fav lipstick today, but I have been suffering with one of the worst colds I've had in years since last Sunday, and so I thought I'd spare you all the trauma of my horrible chapped lips and generally ill face. I'm feeling a tad better today although not great, and I've been off work for the last 2 days and have been trying to pamper myself a little. On Tuesday, I found out the news that my partner would be returning from deployment with the Royal Navy a week early - despite being over the moon with this news, it was ultimately very stressful as all had been organised for the following week, cue panic with moving hotel dates, car arrangements, ringing up the cake makers to bring the cupcakes forward a week...aagh it's been stressful, along with a nice cold to go with it.
Anyway, taking the time out to make sure my nails were done this afternoon, surely the only colour I could go for with such an occasion would be navy blue?! Enter Essie 'Midnight Cami'. This has been in my collection for a month or so now as I wanted a nice dark Winter colour and this fit the bill for me. As with most Essie polishes, it goes on like a dream - it's very sheer at first, but 3 coats does it just fine and you soon have a deep dark blue which shines perfectly without additional shimmer or glitter. It actually looks quite shimmery and iridescent in the bottle but it's more shiny than anything.
