Festive nails combo – Essie Summit of Style & Sole Mate

Essie Christmas nailsI might hate how much of a pain it is to remove glitter nail polish but I do love it at this time of the year. My new favourite comes from Essie (surprise surprise) – Summit of Style is one of their Luxe Effect polishes, with multi-sized bits of glitter which look gold in some lights and bronze in others. It’s really lovely and goes on surprisingly well, needing none of that annoying dabbing to get the glitter pieces to stick. If you wanted to use it by itself, it only takes 3-4 coats to be opaque, and is super twinkly.

I’ve paired it with Sole Mate, another much-loved shade from Essie. It’s a rich plum cream and is one of my staples in the colder months. I was going to stick with glitter just on my ring fingers but the two shades looked so great together than I whacked the top coat on them all, for full-on festive sparkle.

Find Sole Mate here and Summit of Style here, both for £7.99. Boots are have an offer at the moment, with a free trio of mini festive Essie polishes when you buy two full-sized bottles.
