Essie Fondant of You

Essie Fondant of You Nail Art

For June, we are going bright for #CBBxManiMonday. I had planned to use this gorgeous coral with a bright green in a gradient. But Daisy decided that my makeup sponges are cat toys so that didn’t work out. The base colour is from the Essie Fondant of You from the summer 2017 collection. This is two […]

Essie Gel Couture Twill Seeker Swatches and Review

Essie Gel Couture Twill Seeker Swatch

Now that I know Essie Gel Couture have bigger brushes, I am excited to try more of them.  The first being Twill Seeker.  I thought that it would be close to For The Twill of It from their regular collection, but it is not.  Not a bad thing, it is a beautiful polish, just not a […]

Essie Gel Couture Find Me A Man-nequin Swatches & Review

Essie Gel Couture Find Me My Man-Nequin Swatches

I have a love hate relationship with Essie but I think their Gel Couture range may have changed that.  I have fairly big nails.  Not that they are extra long or anything, but they are not teeny tiny and that Essie brush drives me crazy.  Just requires too many brush strokes which can make some […]

Essie Summer 2017 Collection Drip Marble Nail Art

essie summer 2017 drip marble nails manicure swatches

When you get new polishes, you have to see how well they work together.  So I threw all six of the Essie Summer 2017 collection polishes together in a drip marble.  Sil Vous Plait really steals the show from the cremes with a bit of foil-y shimmer but I think they work well together. I […]

Essie Sil Vous Plait Swatches & Review

Essie Sil Vous Plait - Summer 2017 - Swatch

Essie Sil Vous Plait is a wonderful foil and the final of the summer 2017 collection shades!  A rose pink foil.  Now usually, this kind of colour would make me think of the polishes my grandma wore way back and still does.  But on the nail, it has some shimmery foilish goodness going on that I just […]

Essie Baguette Me Not Swatches & Review

Essie Baguette Me Not - Summer 2017 - Swatch Stamped MdU Fantasy - Creative Shop 59 Closeup

You having that weird thought that there is already a polish named Baguette Me Not and it doesn’t look like this?  OPI has one with a dusty salmony-dark pink colour.  I think Essie missed the mark on not naming this something macaron themed as it matches the purple-pink of macarons at my local bakery.  Anyway, […]

Essie Eclair My Love Swatches & Review

Essie Eclair My Love - Summer 2017 - Stamped BP-L041 Plaid MdU Black Swatches

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 […]

Essie Blue La La Swatches & Review

Essie Blue La La - Summer 2017 - Stamped with MdU Navy and BP-L060 - Swatch

A beautiful cool pastel Parisian blue for those hot days!  Essie Blue La La from the Summer 2017 collection was one of my faves when I first saw this collection.  I do love a good blue and in the bottle, it was close to the blue toned Mint Candy Apple.  A  touch less minty green […]

Essie Fondant Of You Swatches & Review

Essie Fondant of You - Summer 2017 - Gradient with Essie Eclair My Love stamped with MdU Bone and BP-L014 Swatches

The second of the Essie Summer 2017 polishes I am trying this week is Fondant of You.  A darker peachy-coral creme with a hint of orange shimmer.  It is described by Essie as a sweet shimmery apricot marmalade.  A bit deeper than Tart Deco, this is a great summer shade and the shimmer makes it […]
