Lockdown had been a brilliant excuse to give myself a little pamper more often. Painting my nails is something I love doing but never seemed to have the time for but since being at home I’ve made an effort to do it more often. A brand that dominated my nail varnish collection is Essie. It’s the best high street brand that beats most high-end brands in my opinion.
I first discovered Essie when I was choosing my wedding nail colour. I picked up Ballet Shoes, which is a gorgeous sheer pink, and I fell in love with the colour. The formula is lovely, the colour applies evenly with no streaks ( I always apply two coats to get the true colour). One tip I have is to always use a base coat and a rapid dry top coat, this will make your nail polish last that little bit longer. I’ve always found Essie Nail Polish lasts at least 7 days before any chips appear, beating other brands I use. This is definitely a high street gem and easily stands out for the crowd on quality and price.
Have you tried Essie or is there another brand you swear by?
