After using it on both my mom, a friend, and myself, I’ve come to the conclusion that I have good and valid reasons for liking this polish so much, besides aesthetic reasons. Its opacity was the most shocking thing because I initially thought Essie polishes were pretty translucent and needed at least three coats. I needed just one coat to cover my entire nail, but put two on just to be extra greedy (live on the edge or what?). I used a gel clear coat over it, and it didn’t chip for at least 6 days, that included washing the dishes on a weekly basis. It is easy-drying and has glossy finish to it. The Essie range retails at about R115 at all Dis-chem stores nationwide.
Just a Quick One
One more thing before I leave – I’ll be posting about my ‘nail tips’ pretty soon. I’ve been asked on a few occasions to create a post on strengthening and lengthening tips, so that post will be coming soon!
