This is a second purchase, guys. And even though this is not an affordable nail polish (at least for me LOL), I think it is worth it! And I have bought this at a discount on both times so it is a good deal.
Essie is not a brand that is always available in retail stores here in Rome that is why when I saw it at Acqua e Sapone, I didn’t want to miss the chance.
I went to their website and found out that this particular shade is not available anymore so I am kind of disappointed. I am not sure if it is only temporarily sold out, if it will ever come again but I think this is so pretty and delicate.
I will classify this as a particular shade, which at first I didn’t know was a topcoat at first. LOL
I practically just use this as a transparent polish if I want something simple on my nails, I love applying this even just alone!
Other than that, I use this on top of any other plain colored nail polish and they all transform brilliantly.
This is under the category metallic and glitter. But in my opinion this is not your usual chunky glitter that is why it stands out to me. I am not a fan of chunky glitters so I appreciate this a lot!
Essie enamel product benefits according to their website are:
extensive color palette with hundreds of shades
high, glossy shine finish
provides flawless coverage along with outstanding durability
brush fits every nail size for streak-free application
Essie named the polishes with wit and charm and that is also amazing, whoever is behind each name is really smart. They have got a hundred of nail polish shades in an extensive palette of iconic classics to a huge collection of colors plus nail care items as well. It is the go-to nail brand for salon professionals, beauty junkies, industry insiders, celebrities and fashion icons around the world. They are the leader in nail luxury. So it makes sense, I mean the price tag. For me, it is kinda up there. I wouldn’t be able to afford this if not for the discounts.
Essie is founded by Essie Weingarten in 1981, who flew to Las Vegas for her 12 original nail polish colors ‘blanc,’ ‘bordeaux’ and ‘baby’s breath’ – timeless shades still in the collection today.
A year after, Essie went out with both base coat and top coat introducing a variety of nail treatments
Essie is hailed to be Best Nail polish Colors in Allure Magazine’s first “Best of Beauty Awards” in 1996 and continues to garner prestigious industry, fashion and beauty awards worldwide.
In 1999 the brand expands into a line of Essie spa treatments lotions and nail care systems. and started to expand going incide salon and professional spa
Essie finally launched in Europe in 2012! And in 2013 ‘bikini so teeny’ becomes the number one selling trend nail color of all time.
In 2016 Essie celebrated 35 years, the brand opens its color vault by reintroducing six cult favorite shades, including ‘starry starry night.’ And the brand introduced gel couture collection these are long wear shades, it is an easy 2-step system of color + top coat for gel-like shine and lust-worthy color.
Finally in 2017 Essie color + care category is created with its new TREAT, LOVE & COLOR shades. the brand’s first 1-step advanced care system in perfect Essie shades strengthens nails in just 1 week.
Essie already captured my heart. the shade, the packaging, the brush.. all so amazing! And I will not forget to mention of course that the formula is one of the best I have ever tried. I have worn this for days and days and it doesn’t come off easily. If I use this on top of any other nail polish it turns out even prettier and long wearing too!
I am glad to share this find. And I am content that it is somehow available here in Europe although not easy to find.
