My Experience with Essie Nail Lacquer – Sunday Funday:

The nail lacquer comes in a rectangular glass bottle with a white cap. The cap has a sticker on the top, with the shade name printed in the same color as the nail paint. The brush is a little bit smaller than conventional nail paint brushes. This means you might get streaky color if you are not careful, but on the other hand, it also helps to easily paint the sides of the nails with the narrow brush. I am quite happy with this brush.

The shade “Sunday Funday” is described as a “bright, tangerine-crush coral with soft shimmer.” It is a vibrant coral orange shade and contains minute white shimmer. It is a perfect color for summer! Under some lighting, this shade may border on neonish for medium to darker skin tones, which also looks very pretty.

The formula is slightly on the thinner side. It applies easily on the nails, but one coat is really very sheer. It may also come out patchy. But the second coat makes it opaque and you get the exact shade as in the bottle. I usually go for 3 coats.

The drying time is really fast. This is the biggest plus point for this nail lacquer. A single coat takes hardly a minute to dry. Even applying 3 coats does not make the nail paint look heavy.

The nail paint stays intact for at least 5 days, even with my daily dish washing and other kitchen activities! The shine is also retained as such for 5 days. After 5 days, there is some minimal chipping at the tips and the overall shine seems a bit faded. I can still keep it for a couple of days, until I have time to reapply, without it looking terrible!

Essie has some really good base and top coats, which can help you retain the nail paint for the full week, without any chipping. Even without this, it lasted me a decently long time. All Essie polishes are also DBP, toluene, and formaldehyde free, which is another major plus.

Pros of Essie Nail Lacquer – Sunday Funday:

IMBB Rating:


Would I Recommend Essie Nail Lacquer – Sunday Funday?

Yes, I would definitely recommend this nail paint. I am quite happy with this. I love this color which brightens up my mood instantly and also the staying power. I really do not have the patience to change my nail color more than once a week! So, this nail paint which can take me through the entire week is something I am thankful for!
