I have always wanted to try Essie Nail Paints because the reviews on Essie nail paints have always been tempting. So I picked up two nail paints – Master Plan and Turquoise & Caicos. And I for sure now after using these nail paints that I would be addicted to Essie forever. 😛
Price : USD 8.50 / RS 540 approx
Master Plan : It is gorgeous taupe grey color. I absoooolutely love these kind of neutrals. Although the men in my life absolutely hate it whenever I wear shades such as these. loll!! Although personally I feel colors such as these look very sophisticated. And especially for office wear think they go very well with the ‘I mean business’ kind of a look. 🙂
With just two coats it gives an opaque finish. And it stays on for good 5 days on me until I see any chipping around the edges.
Sally Hansen Wet Cement could be a good dupe.
Rating : 5/5
The brush for Essie nail paints is flat and a little broader. So it fans nicely on the nail and with just two strokes you are able to paint your nail.
The bottles are small so they are easier to carry around.
Both the nail paints also dry very quickly. Barely minute or a two and you can go on about your business.
Turquoise & Caicos : It’s a stunning sea foam color. It is a little sheer color and I always need 3 coats of it to make it look opaque. Infact two coats sort of look a bit streaky. That siad, it’s such a pretty summery color. I always keep coming back to it every few days. Dries quickly and stays on for good 4-5 days without chipping.
Rating : 4/5
Overall, my experience with Essie nail paints have been fantastic so far and I can’t wait to include more of these in my collection. You mostly find Essie at airports as well so keep a look out for these. You won’t be disappointed. 🙂
