Polishes -Essie -Forever Yummy

on 10/23/2018 5:43:00 AM


Forever Yummy is a blue based ruby-blood-brick-wine creme concoction; I say that because, like most Essies I've tried, the shade shifts in different lighting conditions. How do they do that? In any case, it should suit most complexions, except perhaps the very warm toned. This color is what I think of when I think about early movie stars trailblazing by painting their toenails red, or the trend of matching mani/pedis throughout the 20th century. I'll be honest, however: Forever Yummy doesn't excite me. It dries darker than it looks in the bottle, and it's just...lacking in any kind of glow, drama, or edge. I like the ruby shift in crappy artificial light, and even the deep wine shift in a dim room, but most of the time, it's just a "meh, at least my nails are painted" blood/brick shade. A safe, classic, no brainer polish; it's not going to change *my* life, but Forever Yummy is a deserved classic, nonetheless.

Polishes -Essie -Nail Polish - All The Wave

on 10/21/2018 7:16:00 PM


Very lovely! From their Spring 2017 Collection, Essie's All The Wave is a bold, saturated med/dark shade of royal blue with a creme finish. It looks beautiful on the nail, and I actually don't have anything else that looks exactly like it. Zoya Sia is close, but All The Wave is slightly darker and more vivid-looking.

Great formula as well. Opaque in two coats and no problems with application or wear. I like this polish a lot and I would definitely buy this one again.

Polishes -Essie -Nail Polish - Making Harmony

on 10/21/2018 7:00:00 PM


Lovely shade! From their Summer 2018 Collection, Essie's Making Harmony is a smoky, raisin-y medium purple with a creme finish. Color-wise, it's a lighter version of Essie's Smokin' Hot. Very pretty and flattering on the nail.

Great formula too. Opaque in two coats and no problems with application or wear.

I like the color and I like the formula. I'd buy this one again.

Polishes -Essie -Flowerista

on 10/21/2018 7:00:00 AM


I love all kinds of purple nail polishes, and am a huge Essie fan and was so excited to pick this baby up whilst overseas as it isn't available in Australia. I am so glad to have this colour in my collection. Flowerista is a bright shade of orchid purple, with warm pink undertones. It has a creme finish and an excellent formula. It is almost a one-coat wonder, but I did need 2 coats just to completely even it out and perfect the mani. It applies easily, the formula is smooth and easy to work with. It dries quickly and to a shiny finish. It wears well, lasting around a week when paired with base and top coat. It doesn't seem to lose it's shine during this period also. It removes easily without staining the nail, like some bright colours tend to do. This is the perfect Spring/Summer colour, and I believe it would look best on warm, olive and golden skin tones. I definitely recommend purchasing Flowerista if it is available to you!

Top/Base Coats -Essie -Gel Couture Top Coat

on 10/16/2018 9:45:00 PM


I have been wearing nail polish since I was in grade 8. More or less non-stop for many years.

This is the most perfect durable top coat. It gives nails the type of shine that used to only be achieved by going to a salon.

Since this line came out a few years ago, it’s the only top coat that I purchase. The polishes are also superb!!
