Nail it

Rusty red, petrol, grey, peach and brown are some of the top colours the best dressed nails will be wearing this spring.

And if you want to be creative be sure to buy a nail art decoration kit to marry style with individuality.

That is the message from Essence Cosmetics. Its latest collection draws on the vintage influence. The four retro colours of its nail polish (€2.29 each ) will put you in the mood for a trip to the past. Peach, rusty red and turquoise are plain while grey comes with a light shimmer. Applied on their own or as a base for the decorative elements of the nail art decoration kit, they conjure-up a hint of nostalgia on your nails.

To achieve shiny nails opt for a high-shine top coat (€2.09 ) which gives a popular gel-like finish and is ideal for sealing individual nail-style creations.

If you are keen to indulge your inner artist buy a nail art decoration kit (€3.09 ). It’s easy to create unique nail designs with the two versions of this kit. Whether you go for glitter, flakes or pearls, there is no limit to your imagination.

Essence’s “vintage district” gel eyeliner set (€3.09 ) comes in turquoise and grey. The gel-cream texture of the eyeliner ensures an accurate line and is easy to apply thanks to the brush included.

The duo lipstick and gloss (€3.49 ) come in vintage peach and antique pink. The creamy lipstick texture can either be used on its own or as a basis for the gloss.
