NOTD: Essie Angora Cardi

I don't usually do Nail of the Day posts, mostly because I don't often wear nail polish - even though I love it and own quite a bit of it. I have terrible nails - they're weak, they split easily, and they peel - and I've tried a million different treatments to no avail. That's why they're short - they grow very quickly but I always have to cut them back because once they get over the fingertip they just start splitting and peeling. Very annoying! Aside from that, nail polish always chips on me within hours. ALWAYS. See, there's a tiny chip on my index fingertip. Grrr.

However, sometimes I make the effort, and since I have the week off, I've had time to sit around fixing chips and whatnot. I find this is one of the better Essies - they're a bit hit and miss as far as formula, in my opinion. It's an overcast day here in Adelaide today, which may have affected the colour outcome in the picture a little. It's a wee bit brighter purple than that in real life.


  1. That is such a pretty colour Dee! Purple shades are my favourite :)
    Your nails look so good, a lot better than mine! I can totally relate, it really annoys me that I cannot wear nail polish.

  2. I love angora cardi! It's been my favourite colour for a while now. <3

  3. It's so pretty, a lovely cheerful colour for Winter. :-)
