NOTD: Essie Maximillian Strasse Her

Sunday 19 January 2014

I always say I don't tend to stay true to seasonal shades with my nail polish and this week is prime example, this polish was from Essie's Spring 2013 collection and is possibly one of my favourite polishes I have.

Maximillian Strasse Her is a pastel greeny grey with a slight hint of blue; it manages to be a very modern shade but not lacking in sophistication, I think the main element that connects my favourite nail polishes are that they seem to look different colours in different lights and this is very true of this polish; in some lights it looks like a pale khaki colour and in others a very light grey blue. It is very unique and I don't think i've seen a nail polish of a similar shade.

Of course because this post is approximately 12 months late you can't just nip into Boots to buy it but it's still available online (Link), well worth the purchase.

Are you looking forward to Spring and the lovely pastel hues?
