Essie – A Crewed Interest

I had planned to have Shellac nails done again this week but the nail technician gave out to me for (ab)using it too much (ooh-er), and recommended a regular manicure to give my poor paws a break. I was under the impression that Shellac was supposed to be somewhat good for your nails, but maybe I’ve been mistaken? I do love a good Shellac manicure, purely because it lasts so long without chipping but the downside of course is that the colour selection is rubbish.

Anyways, I wasn’t too bothered as I spotted this beauty sitting on the shelves. Part of the Essie Spring 2012 Collection, A Crewed Interest stood out against all the other shades. A delicious delicate peach shade that’s just so perfect for Summer, I just had to have it on my talon’s, and stat.

I know Essie polishes are prone to streaking but luckily there was none of that as the nail technicians at this Salon are super skilled. I’m hoping it’ll last longer then a couple of days, but I doubt it – especially as I have some packing and travelling coming up. Oh well!

What do you think of this shade, would you wear it? I think I’ve become a bit Essie obsessed lately..

      Yeah, I don’t know where I got that from. Maybe it was a rumour going around when it first came out!

    […] as I wore it pretty consistently for the last few months of  my pregnancy (see this old post on it here). The downside is, my nails are shit at the moment. Well actually no, they are just shit in […]
