The Start Of An Obsession With Essie

Until now, I’ve never tried Essie nail polishes and I’m totally shocked I’ve waited until now.

So you may have seen that last minute I picked up the Essie 2017 advent calendar which I got at a total steal, of just ten pounds.

T E N P O U N D S.

I saw someones Instagram story about it, called my local Superdrug and put one by to go straight down there to get it. It was a massive deal and these polishes I’ve wanted to try so long and man have I got a collection now.

Here’s what I have so far..

For the base/top coats/etc..

5ml Mini all in one
5ml Mini gel couture top coat
5ml Mini apricot oil – cuticle worker.
5ml Mini color corrector for nails
5ml Mini gel setter

Full size fishnet stockings – a dark red.
Full size disco doll – a pink glitter.
Full size luxedo – a very dark Burgundy.
Full size licorice – a dark black.
Full size rock the runway – a bright red.
Full size fifth avenue – another bright red.
Full size mink muffs – a nude brown.
5ml – Sil vous play hero – a shimmer pink.
5ml – Glow your own way – a gold glitter.
5ml – Bobbing for baubles – a dark blue/slate grey.
5ml – In the moon ring – black and gold glitter.


My only question is, why didn’t I try these sooner? I’ve never been the type of girl that cares about her nails, but I am now obsessed. I have changed the colour twice already, from a Christmassy red to a gorgeous shimmer pink/purple. I’d only recommend one thing, the gel setter is so much better than just the top coat. It’s so much more long lasting, and it doesn’t chip at all. My nail application goes ~ File nails ~ Buff, Shine ~ Add some apricot to your cuticles ~ Apply ‘all in one’ for a base ~ Apply choice of nail polish x2 ~ Add some glitter/shimmer if you want ~ Lastly apply Gel Setter. Waaaaalaaa. Your nails look as good as they did if you went to a salon. I’ve had the same amount of compliments on my nails as I do when I pay £30+ to get them done. They do these polishes in cute little gift sets which would be perfect for someone who wants to treat their nails better.


I cannot wait to add some more colours to my collection.


What’s your favourite nail polish by Essie or any other brands?!

    I only have one Essie nail polish to my name but I absolutely love it! I’ve wanted to pick up more for so long but everytime I get to the Essie counter I’m so spoilt for choice I just can’t decide! I wish I got my hands on this advent calendar, I definitely will if they bring it back this year! You’ve given me some colour inspo though so I might pick up a couple of these!
