NOTD: Popping My Essie Cherry

About a month or so ago I bought my first ever Essie nail varnish! It was blogging that bought my attention to this brand. I wasn't quite sure what all the fuss was about with Essie - until I came across their stand and instantly fell in love with the amazing range of colours available! But at £8.00 each, I was sensible and picked up just one bottle... the absolutely gorgeous Lapis of Luxury. It is described as a dreamy, ocean blue and makes me think of some exotic beach location (take me there please?). 


Unfortunately when I applied this I only had time to apply one coat, but you will see from the pictures that you still get good coverage from it - though I really would recommend two as there were a few thin patches on a couple of my nails. 


I can see why Essie is such a raved about brand. It is a dream to apply - the large brush and thick formula makes it effortless. It also dries surprisingly quickly - my left hand was dry to the touch by the time I'd finished my right hand. I will definitely be going back to add more Essie to my nail varnish collection very soon, the problem is choosing which colour next!! 

What's your favourite Essie colour?

    1. Would really recommend paying a little more than normal and trying Essie. That's exactly one of the reasons I liked this - it's not like any other colours I have!x

  3. Wow that blue is gorgeous on you! Never tried Essie but sounds like they're fab, the fast drying time sounds like a big bonus, I always ruin mine:)
