Essie High Class Affair Nail Polish Review

The Essie High Class Affair is another shade that I picked up on sale for $2.25 last week. It’s from the Spring 2016 line and Essie calls it a amorous blush nude.

What’s to love?

I am really loving the light Essie shades I picked up for Spring. I also got Going Guru which is light green last week when it was snowing but luckily the snow is gone now!

The High Class Affair shade is neutral with hints of pink, peach and coral and it looks really pretty on my nails. I love this color for Summer. It’s also easy to touch up so I get long wear from this one. I like Essie because it doesn’t chip very much. I do use two coats as one is a bit patchy for me.

Essie Going Guru Nail Polish Review

The Essie Going Guru nail polish shade is from the 2016 Resort collection but I think it’s perfect for St. Patrick’s Day and Spring! However it doesn’t look too Springy with all this snow.

What’s to love?

Going Guru is a beautiful mint green. It actually looks like the green in mint chocolate chip ice cream. It’s light and looks like it has a white base. I feel like this a great Spring shade and I got great coverage with two coats. One coat looks a bit patchy so you’ll probably need two coats for the best look.

Essie is one of my favorite higher end nail polish brands and I was lucky enough to scoop up some 2016 shades for $2.25 each this morning at the grocery store. Essie retails for $9 so I felt like I hit the jackpot with this discount.

Essie usually lasts me 3-5 days with touch-ups and stays fresh looking while I have it on. It a nice medium consistency that brushes on very smoothly too.

Essie Imported Bubbly Nail Polish Review

I was in the mood for a light pearly polish today so I chose the Essie Imported Bubbly shade and it’s just beautiful!

What’s to love?

Essie is one of my all time favorite luxury nail polish brands. It always gives me long wear and a flawless look. The formula also has a very even consistency that applies without being goopy or sticky.

I chose the Imported Bubbly shade because of the pearl sheen and beautiful golden beige finish. I think it looks really nice for everyday wear and the color cheers me up in the cold weather. I also love that it goes with any color clothing!

It is also DBP, Toluene and Formaldehyde free and Made in the USA. It it on the pricey side so I tend to pick up a bottle when I have a coupon. I got this bottle for free with my Kohl’s $10 birthday cash.

Price $9

Essie Winter 2016 Nail Polish in Oh Behave! Review

The Essie Winter 2016 line is just calling my name and today I picked up the second color that I’ve been coveting…Oh Behave!

What’s to love?

I haven’t been a huge fan of matte light pink nail polish in the past but this shimmer shade is just gorgeous. Oh Behave is the perfect pink holiday shade because it’s light and pretty plus it’s got this amazing gold shimmery iridescence to it, you can see this in the photo below.

I love this lighter shade for Thanksgiving week because I’m going to be super busy and I find light shades to much easier to touch up. I think this is going to be a fun party color for the week ahead. I used two coats which covered great. I have always been huge fan of Essie, the quality of this polish high and I should easily get a week out of this application.

I also love the name…it reminds me of Austin Powers. Oh Behave!

The colors in the Essie Winter 2016 Collection are:

Getting Groovy – metallic gold palladium

Go With the Flowy – cloudlike dove gray

Satin Sister – sleek ebony peacock blue

Oh Behave – minx peach frost

Party On A Platform – london garnet red

Ready To Boa – glistening bronzed mahogany

Essie Winter 2016 Nail Polish in Ready To Boa Review

I’m continuing my Fall frenzy with a selection from the Essie Winter 2016 Nail Polish collection. Ready To Boa is my Fall favorite shade so far.

The theme of the Essie Winter 2016 collection is “I’m into love, peace and getting groovy” which has a fun “swinging sixties London” feel. Kind of like Austin Powers maybe? They even have a shade called “Oh Behave”.

What’s to love?

I chose the Ready To Boa shade because I’m really into the bronzy, coppery metallics lately and this one looks great with my new Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in Amulet.

The color of Ready to Boa is a beautiful multi-dimensional brown with shades of gold, red and bronze with the mix. It’s also got a great shimmer to it!

Essie is a super high quality brand too and this polish goes on very easily. I am wearing two coats but one coat gives great coverage too.

The colors in the Essie Winter 2016 Collection are:

Getting Groovy – metallic gold palladium

Go With the Flowy – cloudlike dove gray

Satin Sister – sleek ebony peacock blue

Oh Behave – minx peach frost
