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 polishes look worse.  They have some great colours, good formulas but a brush makes all the difference.  Which is why I have not tried the[Read more]

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 am loving smoosh manis and drip marbles right now.  So easy but looks pretty (as long as you make some extras to replace the ones[Read more]

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 love.  A real foil, not the streaky metallic stuff I expected.  It is quite unique, for both Essie who don’t have a pile of foils[Read more]

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, on to swatches and review of Essie Baguette Me Not.  It is a light purple with just the right amount of pink and blue.  Not[Read more]

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 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[Read more]
