This week I've bought two new Essie nail polishes and I've been absolutely loving them! They are both from the diffusion line and I really like the brushes as they make it so easy to apply the polish. The end result is a streak-free perfect application on the nail.
The first polish I bought this week was Bikini So Teeny after seeing so many bloggers raving about this. It's a gorgeous cornflower blue with a slight shimmer to it but the shimmer isn't massively visible on the nails.
I applied two coats for a beautiful opaque finish and I was well impressed with this shade. I wore this for 3 and a half days this week and couldn't stop looking down at my nails! I don't tend to wear base/top coats so my polishes often chip really quickly but this one was really long lasting. For the first 2 days there was no chipping at all. Even when I went to remove this, there was only a small amount of wear at the tips of my nails.
The second polish is Penny Talk, which I bought from Alice's Blog Sale for a very good price and it arrived super fast and in perfect condition. I would definitely check out her sale as she always has lots of fab things to buy!
This is a gorgeous rose gold/copper colour, which is a shade I've been after for a while and almost bought one from Topshop the other week. I'm so glad I held off as this Essie polish is amazing. I only had to apply one coat for an opaque finish and it leaves your nails shiny but not super glossy. I really like the effect. My camera isn't really showing the true colour or finish to be honest so I'd take a look at this colour as this is closer to how it looks on the nail.
What are your favourite Essie nail polish shades? I think I need to build up my Essie collection and Mint Candy Apple may be the next on my list...
