NOTD Essie Fiji


This is the first Essie nail polish I have ever bought and I love it! I think it may be the start of an obsession. Although at €12.99 a pop I will probably have to refrain myself. I have lusted after Fiji for some time now but Essie is particularly hard to find in Ireland, but low and behold Boots have now introduced the entire Essie line into their stores which is amazing. 
Anyway back to the polish. The formula makes it a dream to apply and it gives a beautiful finish. In the above picture I have applied two coats for full opacity. The shade is a lovely soft pink which would match any skin tone. I did find that it chipped after about 2 days wear but I think I am rough on my nails because unless I have gel nail on my polish never lasts. 

What are your favourite Essie colours?

  5. I just found your blog through the beauty blog hop. Love it already. While I love this color I cannot paint my nails with it since I find it so streaky. This is a salon only color for me.

    1. Really? Its strange that I can apply it then because I always find nail polishes streaky even when they arent :) OPI Mod About You is my nemesis! I adore the colour but can never ever apply it streak free so I have to reseort to using it on my toes xxx Thank you for your lovely comment xxx

  13. OMG this is just the one I´ve been looking for! Recently I´ve bought two Essie polishes, which on the testers was just like I wanted it, but when I tried it on at home they were just clear with not even a hint of color.. Such a disapointment.. Guess I should go get this one then!:)
