The Summer Nailpolish Edit.

Summer Flatlay with different Essie Nailpolishes in Nude and black tones 
During the last few months, I went through a bit of a 'nail polish detox'. I barely painted my nails and really focused on giving them the right care. However, recently I found myself craving some beautiful neutral nail polish shades. So, of course, I had to go on a little shopping spree and repurchase some of my old faves and discover some new shades to add to my collection. 

Today I want to share with you my go-to summer nail polish shades. And before anyone asks, yes: very obviously Essie is my fave brand when it comes to polishes and I almost never pick up a different brand. But please let me know if you have another brand suggestion I should try out in the future!

If I could only wear one nail polish for the rest of my life it would be Essie "topless and barefoot". For me, it really is the most perfect pinky nude. The pigmentation is on point, so I could get away with just one coat if I wanted to. All in all, I can't think of a better nude for me.

"Lady like" is another shade that I wear quite often, just not as much as "topless and barefoot". It definitely is a darker nude with a bit more of a lavender/lilac undertone to it. Again, I love how opaque the colour is, two coats should be fine with this one.

Essie "ballet slippers" is a less opaque, but just as beautiful nude with a more white-ish undertone than the rest of my collection. I love to use it on my toenails and sometimes on my fingernails. One coat gives you a polished but natural look, as you still can see your natural tips shining through. If you want a more opaque look, you should go for three coats.

I know, Essie "licorice" really stands out next to my nude collection. But what can I say, sometimes I just want to go for a classic and dramatic black. Especially in the summer I just love black nails. For some reason, black polishes don't want to last very well on me. But again, Essie really solved that problem for me and this polish lasts 4 to 5 days on my nails without any chipping. YAY.
