NOTD: Gimme MOOO-ARE Essie!

Hi everyone, hope everyone is doing well!  Pardon the pun above but it does seem like I've been using a lot of Essie nail polishes recently huh?  I have been really laggy with my blog posts and Youtube videos (surprise surprise).  I honestly don't know what happened to October.  I feel like someone has been messing with the time machine- making the days fly pass faster like in the Spy Kids movie where the kids face an evil villian who messes around with a Time Machine.

Anyhow, I'm here to clear my backlog of blog posts so that I can get to the really BIG blog post that I really want to do NOWWWWW.  This is a good incentive for me to clear up some of my backlog so let's get down to it!


ESSIE BANGLE JANGLE!  The colour is a lovely lavender lilac colour under the sunlight but it also borders on a taupey lavender colour without flash if that makes sense.  The formula of this nail polish is excellent.  The consistency is good- not gloopy or too liquidy/streaky.  It applies opaque within 1-2 coats depending on how you apply it.  I like to apply 2 coats for my manicure but that is my personal perference.  It also dries fairly fast which I really appreciate.  Combined with Essie Protein Base Coat and Wet n Wild Fast Dry Clear Coat, my manicure has lasted for more than a week without chipping!  The above photographs were taken yesterday which meant that my manicure was 9 days old.  You can tell that my nails have grown since then so that explains the part on top which is not covered by nail polish.  My manicure stands up to regular washing of dishes and cars (yes, I do household chores too!).

Overall, I'm impressed and I love this nail polish!  So far, I have had really good luck with Essie nail polishes that my manicures with Essie nail polishes last really long except one using a mini Lion Around from Essie's 2011 Far Game Resort Collection.  That particular manicure barely lasted a day.  I'm not sure if it means that the formula for the minis are different from the full-sized Essies because I've read good reviews for the Lion Around polish.  Oh well, I shall experiment some more and leave it for another blog post.

I hope you enjoyed this blog entry and stay safe wherever you are.  If you are in the US/Canada, I pray that you are doing well and that God will keep you safe from Sandy.
