The Nails: Essie Luxedo

I may be on my sick bed yet again, but I still can’t help but feel fantastic every time I look at my nails right now. Luxedo by Essie is a super dark purple with a creamy finish, and looks perfect with a gold accent. I’ve owned it for a while now, but have only just started using it after filling my nail polish storage boxes to the brim – I can feel a nail polish ban looming *cries*!

I paired it with a cool toned gold glitter by accessorize, and the combo is fast becoming one of my favourites (I’m especially fond of the one index finger, one ring finger accent). Essie’s aren’t known for their lasting power and this polish is no exception, but with my Rimmel topcoat, chips are rare. As for tip wear, I’m hammering away at a key board constantly for a good 10 hours a day, so its never fantastic, but so far, so good!

    I love this colour, paired with the glitter accent nail it is the perfect manicure!

    After getting my nail varnish collection down to 43 from 83 last night I feel as though I need to document these shades that were saved from the bin/my sisters grasp on my blog!

    The war between humans, orcs and elves continues. Lead your race through a series of epic battles, using your crossbow to fend off foes and sending out units to destroy castles. Researching and upgrading wisely will be crucial to your success!
