Raaaar! I always feel a little raaar when I wear red on my nails. My colour for the summer is Rock the Runway, right, €14.95, from essie’s new range, called Gel Couture.
It’s basically a gel-like formula that lasts for up to 10 days — depending, of course, on how raaar you get! Two steps is all it takes — the colour, then the quick-dry gel top coat that protects colour and shine — and that’s it, no base coat needed! In my picture, above, I was wearing mine for a week — and it’s still going strong as I type this, three days later. Essie is the brand leader in nail trends at fashion weeks across the world, so the twisty bottle is inspired by a dress twirling on the runway. The tapered brush is designed to hug the curve of the nail, so you get a really precise application. There are lots more shades to choose from, such as classic neutrals, darks and pretty pastels. They’re available in pharmacies nationwide from next month.
