Top/Base Coats -Essie -Good to Go Rapid Dry + Shine Top Coat

foto

Great quick drying top coat! Get solid dry very quickly. The brush is wide and the top coat applies evenly and thick. The texture is silky smooth. So it doesn't disturb the polish underneath. Impressed.

Polishes -Essie -Angora Cardi

I first and last tried this color 3/2017 and was super disappointed. It pulls very dark brown on me after 2 coats (barely tinge of mauve) and applied streaky and clumpy. Hated it and the Essie brush.

Updating this review to add: if you want a dupe of this shade with a better formula, better brush, and the color runs more true purple mauve like you think it should-- buy Sally Hansen's Miracle Gel in shade Beet, Pray, Love. Absolute dupe and stays true to a purple mauve after 2 coats and drying vs. Angora Cardi that becomes so dark after 2 coats you think its blood brown. Looks a lot better in natural light than Angora. Love Beet Pray Love so much more!

Polishes -Essie -Secret Story

GORGEOUS!! I love this one! Essie's Secret Story (also sometimes called Secret Stash) is a vivid and punchy purplish-fuchsia with a jelly formula. It goes on sheer at first but is opaque after two coats. It looks fantastic on the nail, so cute and fun to wear.

I'd definitely buy this one again! Recommended!!

Polishes -Essie -Guilty Pleasures

Lovely color, lovely formula. No complaints about the polish itself, but this particular shade just wasn't flattering to my skintone. I think this would look great on someone with fair skin, but it looked blah and washed-out when I wore it.

Essie's Guilty Pleasures is a medium-pale, coral-tinged bubblegum pink with a crelly formula. Opaque in two coats, and no problems with application or wear.

Very nice but the color just isn't for me. I wouldn't buy it again.

Polishes -Essie -fall for NYC

Fall for NYC is a muted yellow/orange from the Fall 2018 collection. I am not even sure this collection is out yet but I found it at Ulta.
This is a very unusual color, on the nail I think it's a little more orange than yellow but reminiscent of natural pigments/earth tones.

The formula was quite good, almost opaque in one coat and easily opaque in two coats. It dried a little dull so benefits from a top coat. This also has the new paddle brushes which take a little getting used to. I think the wide brush holds a lot more polish so wipe off the edges well. My brush had been cut a little unevenly so it made application a little tricky and this polish was a little runny.

I think this is a very fall appropriate pumpkin pie kinda color.
