Essie Nail Varnish


Essie is a nail varnish brand that carries a very good name within the blogging community, alongside the loved O.P.I. However until recently it has been very hard to get a hold of. However they have now created a diffusion line that retails in both Boots and Superdrug. It took me forever to find a store with a stand, so I took advantage and got three. 


Cute as a Button
This is definitely my favourite shade out of the three. A classic Essie colour, a nice pink toned coral which is just so lovely and girly when on. It was pretty much opaque in one coat, but I put two on just to be safe. I really, really love this colour and think I'm going to be wearing it a lot these coming seasons.


In a Stitch
I like this colour, it has come off slightly darker in this picture. It is a nice pink/brown colour that could look very sophisticated.  Again this opaque within the first coat, and I actually left it at the one for this picture.


Mademosille 
This is a very nude, almost your nails but better colour. Unlike the other too this one is very sheer, and even with three coats you can still see the natural nail come through. This would be perfect if you aren't allowed nail colour at work or school.

Overall I'm very impressed with the quality of these polishes. They lasted around three days on me, which is amazing, and they are so simple to apply, which I hear is something to do with the diffusion line.

I haven't done a NOTD for a while 'cause I've been using the Nail Envy from O.P.I and I couldn't recommend it enough. It has done wonders for my nails. They are so much stronger now, and polish lasts so much longer.

What are your favourite Essie colours?

  5. I think I need Nail Envy, my nails have sustained quite a bit of damage from my nonstop nail polish wearing! Glad to hear it's been working really well on you :) Lovely colours, I haven't tried Essie polishes before but they do make some gorgeous shades.
