Essie Nail Polish - Cocktail Bling Swatch

Superdrug - £7.99 | Natural Lighting
Thank you to everyone that wished me happy birthday, so sweet of you!~ ^__^

Today I felt like channeling my inner "Ice Queen" xDDD So I opted out for Essie's Cocktail Bling. A simple cool-toned grey with a blue base, that results into a lovely muted yet rich finish. The polish has beautiful glossy formula, with a perfect viscosity and wide flat brush that enables even coverage. I have used 2 coats to achieve a nice solid colour. 

Direct Light
Dim/Shaded Light
   
In direct light - the blue hue is more noticeable; resulting in a creamy colour that gives off sophisticated atmosphere.

In dim / shaded lighting -  a deep captivating mysterious vibe radiates. Subtly seductive colour - suit its name perfectly as it's great for those formal occasions / parties. Lovely as a everyday colour too.

This is one of my favourite go to colours for those days where I don't feel too bright yet want a bit of sophistication. 

What colour nail polish are you currently wearing? or currently loving this month? :')
Let me know below in the comments and thanks for reading~ ^^
