I’ve given Essie a bad rap so far thanks to the one bottle I owned previous to today’s purchase. My bottle of Fiji is…I don’t know how to explain it. I think I need to thin it. It doesn’t cover well, and is just an over all pain in the ass that usually requires 3 coats. I decided to give Essie another shot today when I saw this color in Target. The fall line hasn’t really struck me but seeing this one in person made me stop and reconsider. I’m so glad I bought it! This is seriously JUST one coat over my nail hardener (still trying to recover my nails from gels) and china glaze top coat. Coverage was phenomenal, clean up minimal (not much running to the edges, easy to keep away from my cuticles!).
Will be adding more Essie soon - I have a friend who can get it for me much cheaper than normal so I’ll have her stock me up! Going to add a konad full finger plate on my ring fingers. Trying to decide between zebra, leopard or the lace pattern, all in white. Suggest in the ask box!
