glitter nails: essie and NYC


essie sand tropez: boots/superdrug (£7.99) 
NYC Expert Last Nail Polish in Lights Camera Glitter: super drug (£2.99) 

I often wear glitter nail combos, so I thought I'd start posting my favourite colour and glitter combinations on here! I recently have become a bit obsessed with Essie after hearing about their UK Essie diffusion line. I already have 6 polishes and have my eye on at least 10 more! I paired it with the NYC nail polish in Lights Camera Glitter, a clear base full of tiny particles of silver glitter with chunks of blue and lilac glitter going through it. I love the combination of the warm toned neutral of Sand Tropez looks with the icy coolness of the NYC glitter nail polish! I don't normally like to mix tones like this but for some reason it works really well!

  5. I'm very into glitter over normal polishes myself recently. It's so simple but I think it can make a normal colour look really special :)
    I swear by Rimmel Disco Ball but this one looks really worth a try!

  6. I bought Sand Tropez last week because I was looking for a substitute for H&M Nerd and I think it's just amazing. <3

  7. Lily, do you always wear false nails and how often do you change them? I had a pair on a few weeks ago but soaking them off and replacing them regularly seems like a huge hassle!
