Essie 'Splash of Grenadine'  |  Essie 'Lilacism'  |  Leighton Denny Topcoat*  |  Revlon Base Coat*  |  Dotting Tool

Another night on the sofa watching Made in Chelsea means another night relaxing and painting my nails. This time I had no idea what I was going to do so I headed upstairs to my nail polish collection, picked up a few polishes, a dotting tool and headed back down to my sofa and my onesie. 

I ended up with something that I think is VERY Barbie-esque. Splash of Grenadine is one of my favourite Essie polishes because it allows me to wear pink without being too girly because it has a hint of purple in it so it's not quite bubblegum pink. I used Lilacism on my ring finger and then dotted on some of the pink using one of my beloved dotting tools

I got quite a few compliments on these nails... what do you think?

  11. This is adorable! I use a retractable pencil/pen to dot polish on my nails because I don't have a dotting tool - works just the same!

    Love your blog and videos. You're so calm and classy :)
