My first experience with Essie..

Sunday, May 15, 2011

Hey everyone,

Hope you're all having a nice Sunday, I have been chilling so to say and I'm not going to lie, I'm a little bit bored! So decided to cure my boredom by painting my nails. I love Barry M polishes and most of my collection is consumed with old Barry M treats. However after browsing Ebay, I came across this seller beautyzone2007 and decided to order a Essie polish.

I have heard alot of good things about Essie, but I've always found that they are quite expensive compare to a £2.95 bottle of Barry M. However, this ebay shop is based in the USA so the prices are remarkably cheaper. I think for this Essie polish it cost about £5.00 for the polish and packaging. Not bad eh?







I ordered this last Sunday and it arrived yesterday which isn't bad when it's came all the way from America! The shade that I went for is Mint Candy Apple. This is a gorgeous pastel apple green which is a really lovely spring/summer colour. It's a more flattering version of Barry M's mint green, as I do find that polish does make your nails look quite witchy!

The polish was nice and creamy and went on like a dream plus dried really quickly! I'll be examining for chips and see how long it lasts though! I would definitely recommend this ebay seller as they tend to dispatch on the same day, considering what time you order though and everything is well packaged. If you're after high end polishes such as China Glaze, Essie or OPI then head to beautyzone2007!

As for Essie, I am definitely going to be trying some more shades out ( not that I need anymore nail polish though!)

Hope you all enjoy the rest of your afternoon :)
