After the glamour of the BAFTAs and Fashion Week full steam ahead, I can’t believe we are still in the grip of freezing temperatures. Apart from deliciously hot baths with happy-scented aromatherapy oils, there’s little good to be said of this winter. I’ve noticed though, that beyond the nude nail trend there are some ultra brights heading our way, the loveliest of which have to be the hot red/oranges which are so Mediterranean and cheery. My money is on this deliciously vibrant shade from Essie, in Tangerine, that makes me feel holidayish and warm just looking at it.
