Essie Trio Review (great for a 5 minute manicure)

I have no time this week for a proper home manicure and my nails are a mess! Between swimming and sandals and digging for beach glass (my hobby) my fingers and toes look like something out of a horror movie. I’ve also been doing a “paint over” on my toes this Summer to save time so I had to remove 3 layers of polish which was so much fun!

Anyway a few weeks ago I picked up this cute Essie trio from Kohl’s and it was a perfect 5 minute fix for my nails.


What’s to love?

First up I really love Essie as a brand, their colors and staying power is amazing. I also loved that I found a trio for $9.99 +30% off at Kohl’s. So I got 3 bottles for the price of one.

This set has Forever Yummy (red), Mademoiselle (light pink) and Second Shine Around which is a polish refresher.

I quickly applied the red on my toes and light pink on my fingers and I now look human again! Nothing fancy but it only took me 5 minutes and my feet look so much better in sandals.

On a side note it’s getting harder and harder to paint my own toenails as I’m getting older and I like to do them at home. Anyone else have this problem? Oh the joys of aging.

  1. I’ve heard sir great things about Essie and have yet to purchase one bottle! Lol I definitely have my eye on their fall collection of this year.
    Check out my recent blog post! I hope you’ll enjoy it. I’m just starting out and greatly appreciate support from other fellow beauty bloggers! 💕

  2. I put my feet up on my make up stool when I do my toes. Makes it much easier. I can relate with the many layers of polish on my toes. Seemed like it too forever to get it off.
