Cripes! It’s been ages since I’ve done a nails of the day post! I recently bought a new one though so popped it on and thought I’d share. It’s Essie’s Coat Azure from the Spring 2011 collection. A very beautiful bright blue with shimmer.
Indoors (and the most accurate representation of the colour)
It’s a very lovely mid blue with very subtle shimmer, not incredibly different to last summer’s (?) Lapis of Luxury, its a bit bluer and the shimmer does set it apart really. One coat was streaky, two was perfection.
Having said all that, I have no idea why I bought it as I really don’t like these shades on me. I love the colour and it looks gorgeous on the nail but I can’t help feeling like this is a colour for teenagers and that it makes me a bit mutton-dressed-as-lamb-ish…
What say you? Can 36 year old mum’s wear these shades or do they look a bit desperate?
Anyway, my insecurities aside, if you like blues, you should probably get this, it’s lovely.
