The question of today: how many red nail polishes does a girl need? As far as my modest me goes, I'm fine with 5. Here's an introduction to my red nail polish collection, after some serious downsizing - all from Essie.

Essie Twin Sweater Set: one of the shades from the recent a/w collection, a vibrant crimson red with a hint of burgundy
Essie Jag-u-are: gleaming Christmas red with the finest shimmer, perfect for the up-coming festive season
Essie Lacquered Up: iconic bright red colour with a very glamorous Hollywood feel to it, makes for the most sophisticated manicure
Essie Hip-Anema: poppy red with a strong orange undertone, very bright & perfect for summer
Essie Chubby Cheeks: muted red orange, can look quite flat but with a bright make-up or outfit you don't need a nail polish that would clash too brutally

You can buy Essie in most Superdrugs & Boots, or if you're like me & refuse to pay the full price of £7.99, then you can grab them off Fragrance Direct or E-bay.
