Essie Bikini So Teeny & OPI In True Stefani Fashion - NOTD #10

Hello everyone! Today I'm here to talk about one of my guilty pleasures - nail polish! I've just realised while writing this and looking at my nails that this look isn't very summery, it's more wintery in my opinion.. And then I made the connection. I very recently FINALLY watched Frozen - which blew my mind on so many levels, it's one of my favourite films already - and I've realised that these nails are very Elsa-esque. So if you love Frozen, then you'll love these accidentally inspired nails!

I bought both these nail polishes whilst in Florida (post coming soon) last week and I just adore them. I'm an avid fan of sparkles as it is, but I'm surprised I love Bikini So Teeny as much as I do.

I've never really been a fan of light blue nail varnishes as I feel they make my hands look totally washed out and just a bit gross.. However this colour is an exception. It's not light enough to make my hands look really "cold" and white, and it's a pastel shade, which isn't overly bright and in your face.

This polish is opaque in two coats, which is what I expect out of an Essie nail polish to be honest, and it lasts a long time with few-to-no chips. To prove this, these pictures were taken 5 days after I painted them on (is painted the right word? I can't think of another one but it seems weird.. Like I'm painting a wall or something) and even though they show slight signs of wear and tear.. They look great!

Now.. I don't feel like I need to ramble on about how much I love OPI In True Stefani Fashion. It's an all round smashing sparkly top coat, that stays put and will look lovely over any colour. How can you complain?

I hope you guys enjoyed reading this and I will be back soon!

Have a lovely day, and don't stop smiling. :)

Hannah, xx

  9. We loved Frozen to! We've watched it 2 times already, and we still enjoyed it the second time round. The colour really is Elsa-esque. We love the way you've layered the glitter on top too
