Blossom Dandy

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAYou know when we joke about needing 10 nude lipsticks that are all different, this is one of those situations. It’s the new mint blue from Essie which is dangerously close to Mint Candy Apple but just different enough to need both.. maybe. My husband definitely wouldn’t agree. It’s ever so slightly darker and more blue than MCA but if you don’t believe me I’ll do a comparison.. once I’ve made sure they really ARE different.

The formula is nice, Essie can be a little hit and miss but the pastel/creams are usually pretty good and this is no exception. You might not NEED this but it’s a beautiful spring shade.. maybe more ‘must have’ if you don’t have the original 😉 – As always I’m wearing my Seche Vite top coat. I’m not sure whether this is available in the UK yet as I can’t find a link for you and I did pick up while I was in America but if you spot anywhere let me know and I’ll edit accordingly!

    It looks like I need to put back anything I plan on buying by about a week.
    I buy a brush set – you do a video about brushes (I bought the real techniques kit you say you only use two brushes from.)
    I buy a baby blue varnish – you blog a nicer one.

    I plan on buying some suncream soon (my turn for vegas!) Any plans on a sun cream video???

      haha no but I’d recommend a strong one if that’s where you’re going 😉
      Preferably an oil since it;s so dry there x
