Lovin' Essie Nail Polish

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...

  4. I'm obsessed with Essie polishes since they're easier to get hold of now. My fave is Good as Gold which is a bit similar to the second one you reviewed?
