I don’t have a huge Essie collection but Go Ginza, Tart Deco and Bikini so Teeny really stood out to me this year and I believe they were one of 5 nail polishes I took on holiday with me for five weeks. They are to me the perfect summer colours which really make a good tan look amazing. Other brighter favourite are Barry M Gelly in Papaya which has a beautiful glossy finish, Bourjois Adora-blue which is slightly paler than Bikini so Teeny and Nails inc Baker St which is an all year round favourite (did you know Beyonce wore it when Blue Ivy was born?!).
My go-to pale colours were Nails Inc Porchester Square (a must have in any collection), Barry M Mushroom which is the easiest to wear and Barry M Gelly in Lychee. In the winter I reached for Models Own Mushroom as although it’s dark it’s a little more flattering than black and Barry M Berry Cosmo for the same reason. Although I only discovered it towards the end of the year my favourite white is Morgan Taylor All White Now which was a life saver for all my Christmas Nails.
Which nail polish was your favourite during 2013? Have you tried any of my picks?
