This week I’ve been romping around the Cotswold countryside, so being warm and cosy was high up on my list. With that in mind what other #SundayNail shade could I choose than the gorgeous new Essie AW13 trend shade Cashmere Bathrobe.

Like most girls I love cashmere and most of all love feeling Snuggly ideally with a big mug of hot chocolate in front of a log fire too. Today’s photos also feature my favourite cashmere blanket with fur edging. It has sadly been attacked by moths over the years but it can’t be beaten on the snuggle factor.

So I chose to add a touch of neon to the look inspired by my love of this blanket and lift the dark grey. This is a really intense yet slightly shimmery grey. The texture is quite watery so did make application on the harder side especially with dark shades, two coats were certainly required to give full coverage. The formulation has a slight graphite shimmer which does leave an uneven texture so again a good top coat is required.
