Manicure Monday | Essie Fashion Playground

Happy Bank Holiday Monday!

I don’t know if it has been down the recent gloomy weather, but I’ve really found myself getting in a rut when it comes to painting my nails. Most times I would opt for a quick nude one-coater or nothing on my nails at all, but luckily these days I’ve been drawn to much more spring and summer appropriate shades that have really brightened up my nails. One of the more recent additions to my nail polish stash is Essie Fashion Playground, and boy is it a pretty one for this time of year!

Fashion Playground is a lovely mint green shade that is slightly lighter and more pastel toned than Mint Candy Apple, and one that I just can’t get enough of right now. I’m normally weary of wearing greens and blues as they sometimes don’t look right against my paler skin, but pastels always tend to suit so this was a no brainer. It applied nicely and gave an opaque colour in 2 coats, and lasted for about a week before there were any major signs of wear and tear. If you’re looking for a new nail colour that’s perfect for spring and summer, look no further than Essie Fashion Playground!

You can now find this shade on the Fragrance Direct website for just £2.99.
