Mani Monday #6



This week I wanted something even lower maintenance than the last. I picked out this Essie nail polish in the shade Limo-scene because I thought the pale shade would look simple and clean. To be honest I was quite disappointed with the formula of this, it was streaky and with 2 coats you can see it still wasn't opaque. I still feel it looks pretty but it's not the solid colour I'd hoped for.

What do you think of Essie polishes? Is this one just a dud?

  2. That's a very pretty color. I've been into nude nail polish myself when i just don't feel like anything too noticeable or bright.

  3. That's a pretty colour, shame about the formula! I always wear Fiji and find it goes on perfectly opaque in 2 coats :) but that's more of an off-white pinky nude

  5. aw I love essie nail polishes, but I think you have to beware of the lighter colours as I have found you definitely do need to go over them quite a bit to get an opaque colour x

  9. It looks pretty - but it's really a shame the colour isn't more opaque because the bottle really does suggest it will be!

  10. Such a pretty colour! But agreeing with the fact it would be nicer if a little more opaque..
