Mollie King knows there’s nothing better than unearthing your new favourite goes-with-anything nail shade. And this time, she’s got Essie to thank…
Sharing a snap of her perfectly painted talons boasting a sea foam green gloss curteosy of Essie’s Absolutely Shore polish (£10.95), The Saturdays singer wrote: ‘My new favourite nail colour #AbsolutelyShore #Essie #Neutral #ManiMonday.’
Earthy, muted tones have been ruling the red carpet at Cannies this year (they’re the new French mani, don’t you know), so this subtle pale green shade is bang on-trend.
We caught up with nail guru Tom Bachik recently, who gave us his top tips for a flawless coat.
‘Apply a thin layer of polish, then wait a minute before applying the second’, he told us. ‘Yes, it sounds simple, but when I’m rushing before a big event like Cannes, layering up too quickly can be a nightmare.
‘Hydration is also key when it comes to healthy nails’, Tom added. ‘Polish is actually fairly porous, so apply a cuticle oil every day (only an oil can penetrate the varnish) to keep the formula flexible and to prevent it from becoming dry and brittle.‘
You’ll be a nail lacquer King just like Molls in no time.
