Essie Eclair My Love Swatches & Review

Essie Eclair My Love - Summer 2017 - Bottle and Brush

I will start by saying that I don’t know if I just got a bad bottle of Essie Eclair My Love.  Before I got it from Intense Polish Therapy’s giveaway, it was on my list to buy as so many bloggers recommended it as an almost one coater with a great formula.  For me, it has an almost crelly formula and I still have visible nail line showing with two and three coats.  So you may want to check your bottle before buying to see how opaque the formula is and decide which reviews work for you.

Essie’s Eclair My Love has an almost coral leaning berry colour in some lighting and more red under artificial lighting.  You can see some VNL here and this was after adding a third coat of polish.  Admittedly, it is under lights, but it was noticeable in natural sun too.  It reminds me of Sunset Sneaks from about two years ago, which had a better formula for me.

Since there was some visible nail line, I decided to go with some bolder black stamping.  I used Born Pretty Store’s BP-L041 plaid themed stamping plate with Mundo de Unas Black on all nails.  The stamping definitely improved the look of Essie Eclair My Love for me but not as in love with it as many bloggers who previewed the collection were.
