NEW TO MY WARDROBE

Essie Maximillian Strasse Her


For the past six months the space in my local Boots for Essies Maximillian Strasse Her has been empty, I've checked every time I pass an Essie counter, and last week I finally spotted a full slot of the greeny-grey bottle of goodness.

I'm not sure what it is about this shade that made me obsess over it for a good six months, but since it's purchase, I've been finding this compliments a monochrome outfit rather nicely, and we all know how often I like to don those! As with all Essie polishes, the lasting power just ain't quite there unless you have a bottle of seche vite to hand, but it dries rather quickly and the colour more than makes up for a chip or two...

  1. That color really is beautiful! It leans towards gray but has enough blue/green in it to make it not quite a neutral. I can definitely see why it would pair well with monochromatic outfits! :)

  2. I can see why you wanted to get your hands on this colour, it's gorgeous. I'm a big big fan of blue shades when it comes to nail polish, they seem to complement almost any outfit. I will definitely be keeping a look out for this one! x

  26. This is one of my favorite nail colors - I love how it works so well in the transition seasons. It's one of my go-to's for fall and spring, but still feels like an appropriate winter shade as well.

  27. In love with this nail colour! It kind of reminds me of something tropical.

  29. Oh, wow, this is such a beautiful shade! I've made a promise to myself not to buy any new nail polish as I already own an excessive amount that my fingers and toes will never be able to cope with, but I just may have to break that promise because I think I'm in love! I'm so weak when it comes to nail polish and I'm particularly a sucker for Essie!
