I first saw the Essie collection from Sandra- she has a Youtube channel so GO AND SUBSCRIBE TO HER PLEASE!. I've been following her ever since day one. She is a fellow Canadian and I absolutely love hair and cheek combinations.
Long time no blog. I'm back with a tiny teeny nail polish haul to share with you.
Anyways, I'm on a Nailpolish Out 2011 and that means that I can only buy 5 nail polishes for the entire year. I ordered the Essie 4-pack mini bottles from Transdesign, but the day after I ordered it my friend gave me 3 bottles of Essie polishes from the French Affair collection because she didn't like it. Now if you read my giveaway post, you know that I added the Essie 4-pack mini bottles as a prize. So Don't forget to join!!! :)
The Essie polishes that I have are as follows:
> Nice is Nice(cream no shimmer)- Pastel pale lavender with a touch of pink (Think OPI Rumples Wiggin' or Lucky Lucky Lavender. but a little bit brighter)
Essie Nice is Nice and OPI Rumple's Wiggin'- I don't have Lucky Lucky Lavender, but I saw swatches and it's a very close dupe
> French Affair(cream no shimmer)-Light pastel pink (think OPI Mod About You, but a tad pinker)
Essie French Affair and OPI Mod About You.
First 2 fingers- OPI Mod About You
Last 2 fingers- Essie French Affair
> Coat Azure- Bright blue with blue and silver shimmers(Reminds me of Essie Lapis of Luxury and OPI No Room for the Blue, but with shimmers ).
Essie Coat Azure and OPI No Room for the Blue
First 2 fingers- OPI No Room for the Blue
Last 2 fingers- Essie Coat Azure
Conclusion: Amongst the 3, Coat Azure is my favorite because the formula is amazing and it is not streaky- needs only 2 coat for the perfect look. Both Nice is Nice and French Affair are perfect for spring and the finish result is pretty,but application for these are a little bit tricky and they need at least 3 coats.
Hope you guys enjoyed this post.
Did you purchase any Essie French Affair collection polishes? If so, how do you like them?
Sorry for the lack of blogging, but I have lots of hauls to come and that means that my bank account is going down the drain. Yikes!
Don't forget my giveaway :)
