Wow. Where’s has the week gone? Suddenly Christmas has slipped away, sadly with 2 nail disasters too… That’s being back in the countryside for you.
So for this weeks #SundayNails I chose a luxe pearly shade with Essie Main Squeeze. This isn’t a new shade but a great staple. I love the iridescent nature of this polish. It was originally launched in their wedding collection but has since become a firm lust-have.
It has an amazing blue flash of colour through it which just creates an a luminosity that gives a true pearl glow.
I worked for a few years at the Chanel head office where pearls ruled and I have loved them ever since. The idea that wearing pearls radiated light up to your face and created a luminosity unrivalled by any synthetic makeup form. Mademoiselle Chanel of course was renowned for wearing multiple chains of pearls for this reason.
I’m a great lover of jewellery so the idea of pearlised nails excites me greatly.
I might change my nail shade for my new year festivities but for now I’m enjoying the shimmer and pearlised shine of Essie Main Squeeze.
