If you are a follower of my blog you will already know I love Essie nail polish, for its £8 price tag it is wonderful quality that provides a beautiful smooth high shine finish. They also have fantastic staying power, which is perfect for those of us who don't intend on having to re-paint their nails every couple of days, once a week or more is just right for me.
I often scour the shelves of Boots looking for new shades that take my fancy and recently I stumbled across Eternal Optimist. It's a gorgeous shade, a cross between a taupe nude with a dusky rose hue depending on how you look at it. I would class it as a very classic classy colour, the sort of shade that doesn't go out of fashion and you imagine adorns the nails of ladies who lunch.
I have been wearing it for over a week now and I've had lots of compliments on it, not only on the shade itself but also on how shiny it it. People keep asking if it's shellac because of the high shine finish.
I am so in love with this colour that I sporadically catch sight of my nails and think to myself 'they look pretty'.
