Essie 1000th Shade - Aim To Misbehave Nail Art + Review

Hey everyone! Hope you've all had a lovely weekend, we had a bank holiday weekend in the UK and it was so great to have 3 days off. Less than two weeks now until my holiday where I'll have a whole 9 days off and not have to think about anything. This weekend I spent time with my friends, shopping for my holiday and of course doing tonnes of nails. In fact I feel like I've wasted my day off today in a way because I've been inside catching up on reviews all day instead of enjoying the sunshine - the sacrifices I make eh? Haha.

Anyway, today's nail art is something fun and bright to match the weather we had here today, even if I didn't get to enjoy it. Essie recently released their 1000th shade: Aim To Misbehave*, which is this gorgeous fun and shimmer golden yellow shade. It's such an honour to be able to show their 1000th shade on my blog. Whilst I don't have a tonne of Essie polishes, I love all the ones that I do have, and they were some of the first polishes I ever owned (thanks eBay!) so the brand holds a special place in my heart. Especially as they organised for me to have my photo done by Rankin!

Aim To Misbehave* is, as I said above, a beautiful golden yellow shade. It has a bright shimmer to it which really stands out and really reminds me of sunflowers. This was 2 easy coats, shown without topcoat

Aim To Misbehave* retails for £7.99, or you can find it for £6.79 (currently) on Amazon.

For the nail art, I knew I wanted to do something floral-y because the nails seemed to scream for that, but I wanted to keep it monochrome to make the yellow stand out as much as possible. So I went for these black and white flowers. I started by drawing out the white flowers using Essie - Blanc, and then I outlined with black acrylic paint. Then I added studs to my accent fingers and finished with a coat of Seche Vite.

What do you think? Let me know in the comments!

  1. Love the bright color! And the flowers are so cute!!

  2. Cute polish! Congrats to Essie.))) I would think that 1000th polish was going to be some classic red. Yellow is unexpected.))

  3. What a gorgeous shade. Not sure it would work with my skintone but I love the fun vibe of the colour and the look you came up with. Raspberrykiss xo

  4. I think it's really pretty! Perfect for summer but also for autumn :)
