We’re now well into the new year, we waved goodbye to Christmas and NYE long, long ago. That also means that we’ve bid our farewell to statement metallics, party glitter and deep burgundy nails (I have anyway…). Instead, it’s time to welcome neutrals and spring colours back into the palette, as well as toying with blue and green tints. I have to say, I’ve been loving them. Above are a few of my favourites this month (all pretty dark and grown up – perhaps I’m trying to echo my own reaction to the new year; bleak with sudden responsibility). That aside, my newest addition; Mind Your Mittens – Essie. Described as a blackened teal, it’s my shade of the year so far. Subtle, sultry and sophisticated: it’s blue tones are amazingly complimentary and stunning transition into spring!
