French Affair by Essie

Despite the cold weather in Australia (yes my dear readers, Australia is now well and truly in the middle of winter), I'm dreaming of springtime. Springtime in Paris to be exact. But since Paris is more than 10,000 miles from Sydney I can get my French cravings with French Affair by Essie.

French Affair is a cool toned baby pink that's neutral enough to be worn with most outfits without clashing. I found the formula of this colour much runnier than all my other Essies, and 3 coats was required to get opaque coverage. On the plus side I've got them on 4th day in a row, without any top coat, and there's no chip in sight.

And if you're thinking I'm obsessed with Essie at the moment, you'd be right, since all my recent nail posts have featured Essie. That's because not only do I love the colours and formula, the fact that Essie is free from Formaldehyde, Toluene and DBP means I can put my pregnant mind at ease that I'm not doing harm with any nasty chemicals.
