Essie Nail Varnish Collection & Review

I am a huge fan of Essie Nail Varnishes and recently Essie released a difusion line of their most popular nail polish shades in selected Boots and Superdrug stores across the UK, when I found out about there release in the UK, saying I was excited was an understatement and I knew I needed them in my life. They have quickly become my favourite nail varnish company and my collection just keeps on expanding. I love absolutely everything about them. The colour range is phenomenal and there's a colour for absolutely everyone.

Midnight Cami: I absolutely love this shade and this colour is one of my newest additions. The colour is a beautiful dark navy shade and the formulation is fantastic, it's an opaque navy with two coats. The only thing I don't like about this nail varnish is the brush, I personally prefer the thick brushes rather than the thin brushes but that's just a personal preference. I wore this colour last week and on the 3rd day I noticed some very minor chipping and that was without a topcoat. 

Tour De Finance: This is probably my most worn colour out of my whole Essie collection. If I'm not sure what colour to go for 90% of the time I end up going for this shade. The colour is a gorgeous fuchsia with shimmer running through it. This shade is opaque with just one coat and it last's for 5+ days with a topcoat without chipping. It also dries super quickly.

Orange It's Obvious: This is definitely a summer shade. It's a a bright orange and it's a shade which I've only worn a couple of times but this shade will most definitely be my staple summer colour. This shade is like nothing I own, it is a very very bright colour and that's what made me pick it up. I love the thick brushes as it makes it's it really easy to apply on your nails and I find you only need 2 strokes per nail for a full coverage. This shade is an opaque orange with two coats.

To Buy or Not To Buy: I love this colour it's a gorgeous pastel purple, almost lavender colour with blue shimmer (which isn't as noticeable on your nails as it is in the bottle) running through it. It takes around 2-3 coats but because it dries fairly quickly how many coats it needs isn't an issue. This colour would be flattering on any skintone and it's lasts a long time without chipping.

A Crewed Interest: This shade is one of my favourites, it's a gorgeous peach shade that would suit any skintone, i've seen this shade on the darkest and lightest skintones and it really does look amazing on everyone. It's quite sheer so you need around 4 coats which can be a pain and it doesn't have the fastest drying time but it is a really beautiful colour so that definitely make's up for the formulation.

Muchi Muchi: This shade is a very very light pink and it's by far my favourite shade and most used nail varnish out of my whole Essie collection. Even though you need 4-5 coats to make it opaque because the formula is quite watery it's still my favourite colour out of the Essie nail varnishes I own, it's really flattering on the skintone and it would suit anyone. The formulation isn't the best but I love that this shade has the thick brush because the thick brush make's it much easier to apply onto the nails.

Mademoiselle: This is also one of my newest additions and I haven't tried it yet so I can't say much about it but I thought this colour would be fantastic for french manicures, after seeing FleurDeForce's french manicure video, this seemed like the most perfect pink base coat. I'm yet to try this but when I do I will definitely put up a NOTD.

Waltz: This is also one of newest additions (my newest additions are ones that I received for my birthday) and I'm yet to try it. I have only tested this shade out and it is a very very sheer white and it's another shade that will be perfect for a french manicure.

I couldn't recommend Essie Nail Varnishes enough, they are by far my favourite nail varnish company. Essie Nail Varnishes are available from Boots and Superdrug for £7.99

  4. I love the way the essie nail colors look and the packaging but I've never tried any because I'm not a huge fan of their price. But since so many bloggers rave about them, I think I need to give in and try at least one soon. :)
