I decided to have a change from my usual (and much loved) neutral nail shades and went for something at the complete opposite end of the spectrum, a blue black. I bought this Essie shade last winter and was very dubious but after trying it again today I love it.
I think it is very difficult if you are a neutral lover to get used to dark nails and likewise if you love bright and colourful nails to look down and see a natural, pale nail but sometimes it's good for a change and Essie is a great brand to make that change with. I don't own many Essie shades largely due to the fact that they are a little bit expensive but boy are they good. The colour goes on super easy and the lasting power is better than most other brands I wear. It does make the price tag seem worth it and I am definitely going to get myself some more shades!
After School Boy Blazer is a great winter shade and looks really lovely on, if you are looking for a very dark nail colour that's not as harsh as black I would definitely recommend this shade! Are you a fan of Essie nail polish? What is your favourite winter nail colour?
