First up is French Affair- a pretty pastel marshmallow lilac pink creme. I say marshmallow because there is something about this color that reminds me of those tiny mini pastel colored marshmallows. There was a little dragging with this polish, but after the third coat it looked alright. If i hadn't been in a hurry i probably could have applied it better to get a smooth even finish.
Cute As A Button is a bright coral pink, perfect for summer. This looks super cute with white polka dots from the BM plate on top! It certainly lives up to it's name. This is three coats.
Oh Lollipop, you are the perfect summer red- I'm so glad you came home with me! I love this color. It's a delightfully squishy, jelly, bright red-orange that just makes me smile. I originally saw this when my sister pulled it out of her little nail polish bag, and i had to have it after seeing it on her nails. If you aren't big on Essie's but want something fun to try, definitely snag this color.
Speaking of my sister's nail polish bag, this is one she gave to me! She purchased it only to realize that it was pretty close to another Essie polish she already owned, except without the shimmer. Of course if it had been me i would have kept both because c'mon- shimmer and no shimmer is totally a huge difference and it makes total sense to own both, right? right? just say yes. This is two coats of Big Spender, a bright fuchsia with grape undertones.
Merino Cool is just that- cool. I love this polish for it's effortlessly chic feeling it gives me when i wear it. It's a dusty purple gray, and i feel like it's one of those sophisticated yet slightly edgy colors. This is three coats. Please excuse how dreadful my cuticles look in this picture- direct sunlight is unforgiving.
Do you own any of these colors? Are you as drawn to the cute little Essie bottles as i am? Let me know in the comments! Thanks for reading!
