#bigblogmasproject Day 17 | Essie - A Sprinkle In Pink

Who doesn't love a little bit of glitter at Christmas? 

Okay, so pink isn't the most traditional of Christmas colours but you all know how much I love pink!

This is one of Essie's Christmas collections and features Fiji (a beautiful pale pink) and A Cut Above (a sparkly pink glitter). Technically, you could use both of these as stand alone polishes as with several coats A Cut Above looks really pretty but I like to team them both together or use Fiji on the majority of my nails and then use A Cut Above on my ring fingers as an accent nail.

The set comes in a cute little box which you could easily give someone as a gift or use as a stocking filler. It is currently on sale for £12.99 which is really good value as Essie polishes retail at £7.99 each and these are both full size polishes. I was lucky enough to have a £10 Boots voucher so I managed to pick this up for £2.99 and I'm really impressed. I've heard several reviews of some Essie polishes being a little streaky and having only bought mine from Fragrance Direct in the past I was a little skeptical about purchasing some but I'm really glad I did!

Do you like glittery nails at Christmas? Would you wear pink or a more traditional colour?



  1. beautiful colours! I love them both :) I love a little bargain :P


  2. Fiji is such beautiful shade... and when I see pink glitter - I'm sold - gorgeous combo!
