NOTD: Essie Ballet Slippers & Essie Eternal Optimist


With all the beautiful weather we've been having recently I've finally broken out of my I-only-want-to-wear-dark-colours fixation and have started reaching for pretty pastel colours.

Essie are one of my favourite brands for their great formula and easy application and for this look I used Ballet Slippers with Eternal Optimist on my ring finger. Eternal Optimist is a really lovely nude colour which is great for days when you want something on your nails but nothing too dark or distracting. 

I also love the milky colour of Ballet Slippers but I forgot how sheer it is. In this picture I had applied 3 coats but the whites of my nails were still visible underneath so I think next time I use it I'll apply a layer of an opaque white polish before I add this one on top to give it a bit of a helping hand.

Are you a fan of Essie nail polishes?
