Have you seen that meme on Facebook that is like 'my wife just asked which one I like best' and it's a picture of three essie nude shades. Yeah... well this post is kinda gonna be like that. And I can totally tell the difference between those three nudes as well - just in case you wondering.

So basically, I am a sucker for a pale pink nail colour. Tbh, it's all I wear on my nails these days. It's quite classy, sophisticated but still young, I think. I have a few colours that I wear on rotation and I thought with pink being the colour of 2017 ( I have just made that up btw, but in all seriousness pink is everywhere is right now) I thought I'd write up about my faves.

So let's start with one of my ultimate faves, if not THE fave. And that is essie Fiji. Oh Fiji, you are a babe. My friend Sarah says 'it's the perfect mix of white and pink' and she totally hits the nail (HEH do you get it) on the head. I swear the formula has changed, cause it's not as streaky as it used to be, in fact I find it pretty easy to apply. I tend to apply two coats, then add a quick dry top coat, and non chip top coat (posts to come on my HG top coats very soon!) and voila, it lasts for a good week on my nails. I was so happy at Christmas cause Boots put all their essie Christmas gift sets in the half price sale and I managed to pick up Fiji and a pretty silver glitter for just £6.50, that's £3.25 each. Bargain of the century. I've lost count of how many Fiji's I've bought, but it's up there as one of my favourites for that pale pink look.

Moving on to a slightly cheaper alternative to essie now, is Rose Hip by Barry M. This doesn't last as long on my nails as essie does, but it's still very pretty. It's a pale baby pink that is perfect after two coats. Also because it's from the Gelly range, it's has a super shiny finish too, faking that 'I've just been for a gel mainicure' look.

That's essie Fiji on my nails in this pic... (also please ignore my dodgy nail painting job, I promise it didn't look as bad in real life!)


My other favourite pale pink essie is Minimalistic I may have told you before why this nail polish holds a special place in my heart, but I'm going to tell you again. So basically for some unknown reason, it's pretty hard to get Minimalistic here in the UK, so I have picked this up both times from America. However, it's definitely worth the trek. It's a pale pink which is slightly less white than Fiji. It's a thinner base, but still looks really good after two coats.

So why do I love it so much? Well because, I class it as my 'enagement nail polish.'

Basically I had no idea that my trip to NYC in August 2015 was an elaborate plan. I thought I was going on a trip with my Mum and that was that. So I painted my nails an aqua colour (essie blossom dandy if you're wondering) cause I was going on holiday. Then Henry turned up, surprised me, proposed and I was like 'hmm, this blue is not what I envisioned for my nails at this moment' so that night on the way home, we made a pit stop at a drugstore for me to buy an engagement polish. Yes I wish I was joking, but you should know me well enough to know that is what I do. I chose Minimalistic as I'd been eyeing it up anyways, and I bought it, painted my nails and then showed off my ring to everyone. So it will always hold a special place in my heart, maybe it will be my wedding polish too? But I think it might be nice to get a separate one for that.

So this post was probably very hard to get the point of if you're not a fan of pink nail polish, but if you're like me then you totally need all three for your collection, because trust me they are all different. I swear.

So now is the fun part, are you a baby pink nail obsessive like me? And if so, what is your fave? I'm always open to adding new pink polishes to my collection...
