April 20 2018

There’s just something about coral nails that screams summer and holidays and vacations! I’ve been allowing my nails to rest for a few weeks, and I’d been digging the natural look. But today I felt like freshly lacquering them up, and decided on this coral by Essie called “Tart Deco”. They always have cute and witty names for the colours. Do you use Essie? What are some of your favourite nail polishes? xoxo

EPARA x SHIRLEY B. ENIANG EPARA is a luxury skincare brand, founded by Ozohu Adoh. Ozohu discovered organic ingredients from Africa, and has carefully curated each product. It brings me great pleasure to know that this brand had someone like me in mind to create for, as a woman of colour.
