My New Essie Favourites

Monday, 22 June 2015
I picked these up during the Priceline 40% off sale because I am a total sucker for Essie nail polishes. These particularly caught my eye so I figured I would do a full review with swatches for you guys because who doesn't love pretty nails?

Splash of Grenadine
I am IN LOVE with this colour. It is quite a unique one and a shade I don't necessarily go for but it kept seeing pop up everywhere on Instagram and YouTube so I had to give it a go. It is a bright light purple that is somehow really pretty and understated on the nails. It is one of those brights that you don't have to be super brave or adventurous to wear. I even wear this one to work all the time. The formula is typically wonderful and is opaque in two coats. It applies smoothly, dries relatively quickly and the application is really helped along by the new wider brush Essie has started to use.

I really love pinky, blue-toned reds in both lipstick and nail colours so I had to pick this one up when I saw it. Again, it is a really good formula that applies well, is opaque in 2-coats and is the same great quality.

Vanity Fairest
At first glance this one just looked like another baby pink in the store but when I looked closely I realised it has the most beautiful, sublte glimmer through it. Naturally I had to buy it and I wasn't disappointed! Unfortunately this is one of those shades that is impossible to accurately capture on camera but let me assure you, it is subtly gorgeous! It is quite thin and you will need 2 coats to achieve this level of opacity. If you need a pretty pink nude with something extra, defintiely give this one a go.

So there are the latest additions to my Essie nail polish collection. Let me know if there are any other shades you would like me to review because even if I don't already have it, I am always looking to expand with more gorgeous colours.
