an Essie NOTD

 So the other week after a meal to celebrate the handing in of the dreaded 'd' word (im still having nightmares over whether everything's right haha) my friend convinced me that it was a good idea to take a trip to boots, how wrong was she, i only went in because she wanted to purchase a lip balm, however i left with two Essie polishes, my friend with foundation, and with her mothers boots discount card i was rather smug with myself. After posting the above picture of the Essie display i couldnt stop admiring all the lovely shades, and after continuously adding shades to my basket from ASOS in the past and forever removing them, standing face to face i just couldnt resist any longer (and i mean come on i had discount aswell).
So the polishes i left with were the infamous mint candy apple and tart. these polishes completely live up to the expectations i had and then some, with just one coat they were opaque and with a pretty large brush application is completely easy and streak free. At around £8 these aren't the cheapest polishes on the high street but my word they are totally worth it with gorgeous packaging and a range of shades. Tart is a gorgeous pastel peach/orange colour and i think mint candy apple just speaks for itself!! i think i may just have to avoid boots a little more after their newest addition to hit the shelves!!
have you tried Essie polishes? what did you think?

  1. Tart looks like such a pretty colour! I wanted mint candy apple but its always sold out! x

  2. its different isint it :)..if its any help there seemed to be loads in boots!! :) xx

  3. I love Essie in a overall, but I find their dark shades hard to work with because of the tiny teeny brush! Nevertheless, the brights and pastels are just stunning and I can name so many Essie ones that are on my top list! x


    1. haha thats dedication :) i think they've got bigger brushes to what they originally did now, not to sure though xx

  4. I really want to try out some essie nails! lovely colours :)
