Essie nail polish

Monday, 9 March 2015

I have only heard good things about Essie, about the lasting power and how streak-free they apply. However, I have their Fiji polish and it is the most streaky nail polish I have ever used. It is an absolutely gorgeous colour – almost white pink. However, it needs 4 coats before it is completely opaque. As you can imagine, it takes ages painting four coats, as you have to wait for each one to dry. As if painting your nails didn’t take long enough already, it also chips within three days with me. I really wasn’t very impressed and they are not cheap, so I expected so much more. I am almost too afraid to try any other shades!
