Essie – Lights

The perfect bright nail for Summer don’t you think? I love this shade so much! Such a beautiful bright pink just knocking on the door of a neon pink with a semi matte finish. I’m pretty pale still and it makes my skin look darker than it is which is always a bonus! This would look amazing when I actually have a tan though!

The formula of this Essie polish is somewhat runnier than the others I’ve tried and I managed to ruin a white rug applying this so I wasn’t a very happy bunny at all but the colour really is beautiful. It dries reasonably fast and other than the consistency it’s easy to work with and not streaky at all. Above I used 2 coats which is enough to make it completely opaque so top marks for that! The extra coat also makes it last a bit longer on natural nails as this chips like heck with just 1 coat but bear in mind I’m a Mummy and Mummy hands never ever stop moving and car seats and teeny tiny little poppers are a nails worst enemy. It lasted about a day before it chipped for me but that was without a base or top coat.

I really love Essie polishes as I have said many a time before but the consistency lets this one down ever so slightly for me but I love it all the same.
