I applied 2 coats on top of a base coat. I didn't use a top coat. I was pleased with the results.
It's a really pretty shimmery nude colour. It's perfect for every day use. I found that it lasted really well without any chips for 4 days. After the fourth day the chips began to appear but not to the extent that I felt I had to remove the polish. I was determined to keep it on for a full week.
Today the full week is up and here is the result.
All in all I think the polish performed really well. I've seen much worse after a week's wear. This polish had to survive an hour in the swimming pool, multiple hand washes and quite a few dish washing sessions. Not bad really.
I am beginning to really like Essie polishes and I have more to try. They seem to last well and they aren't too expensive. They retail for £7.99 and can be bought at Boots and Superdrug.
Have you got a favourite Essie colour?
