Essie is a brand that has never really caught my attention because I tend to gravitate to colors that are brighter and bolder when shopping for nail polish. Lately, I've actually been buying lighter shades and when I found this collection on sale, I couldn't resist. The only thing that kind of bothered me, was that the brush is tiny! It took me a few nails to get used to it, but it's actually not that bad.
This is French Affair in the shade. I used three coats, but if you have short nails, you can get away with two.
French Affair in the sun. I absolutely loved how this color looked on my skintone and I am looking forward to buying more pinks like this one.
Nice is Nice is a beautiful lilac, I used three coats for this one as well.
Nice is Nice in the sun.
... and my favorite of all... Coat Azure. Even though I liked the other two colors, I still can't help but love brighter colors. However, this one isn't a bright blue at all, it's more of a shimmery, dusty blue. Two coats on this color would have been perfect, but for consistency, I went ahead and did three.
You can see the shimmer in Coat Azure much better in the sun.
Overall, now that I own Essie polishes I wish I hadn't overlooked them because they really are great quality nail polishes. I just wish they would broaden their color scheme, but I'm sure I'm not the only one who thinks that.
