Here we are, first nail polish post of the year. I'm aiming to have Monday's post to be a nail polish of some variety, I like the routine, plus it means I can keep something regular going.
Starting off this year, I've got the gorges Luxedo from Essie. I have a lot of love for Essie, however in my head their still more of a higher end brand due to their price, but I think they are well worth the £7.99 price tag, plus it doesn't hurt to pick up a couple when their on offer in Boots or Superdrug.
Luxedo was part of Essie's Winter 2012 collection, so I was surprised to see it in Boots just before Xmas, it's currently out of stock on their website, so I don't know if that means it won't be here for long but I would recommend you pick it up!
A blackened plum colour, Luxedo is a gorgeous colour for winter. On my nails it can look blackmail in some lights it's plum and others a very dark chocolates brown - a really bad description but it is gorgeous. It's really glossy in two coats, plus it lasts really well on the nail, no chipping for over a week!
As it's the diffusion line, the brush is awesome, I find it covers my nails with one stroke, plus leaves a streak free finish.
As a lover of dark polish, this will be on my nails for a while, if not my fingers then my toes!
What do you think? A good colour for this weather or are you starting to crave lighter colours?
