NEW TO MY WARDROBE

The Nails: Essie Master Plan

I've mentioned Essie's Master Plan countless times since I purchased it at the beginning of the year, but after a fair few of you tweeted me last week to ask what was on my nails I decided a full ode was on the cards.

I'm often told that my perspective on colours is rather off, but to me Master Plan varies from a taupe-y grey to a lilac grey depending on whether you're in shade or sunlight. As with all Essie formulas they dry super quick but the longevity of the formula is questionable at best - Seche Vite is a must I find. The taupe shade has been a go to recently with my monochrome outfits as it adds a different shade of grey, but with a little more colour than a bog standard grey. If I fancy wearing colour as well (on the off chance I'm feeling adventurous, y'know?) then it doesn't interfere with anything else I choose to wear, making it a pretty safe bet. For that reason I love it as it's brought me out of my nude nail rut.

If a more warm toned grey isn't for you then keep your eyes peeled next week as I have a little something up my sleeves with a tad more blue in it. Oooh, spoilers...

  2. This is a lovely colour and would go with pretty much everything. I don't own any grey nail polishes and although we are heading into spring and pastels are everywhere, I think I might purchase one anyway x

  32. I would love the shade, but my local drugstore doesn't stock it :( And I would prefer to see it before buying, as I don't want something too similar to what I already have.

  35. I've not been one for the grey toned nail polish, but having seen Master Plan being featured on many lovely beauty blogger's fingers, I think I'm starting to come around! It's just a shame that everyone else is also liking it, as now it appears to be sold out in all the places i've visited!

  36. I love warm toned grays! I'm surprised I don't have more of them in my collection - I went through a sad, sad neon phase. Can't wait for the blue though!

  44. This shade is super duper nice, I actually read a review on it about a month ago and ever since then I've kept it in the back of my mind. It's the type of shade I would like to wear.
