Yummy Mummy - Essie Goodies

I have been wanting to try Essie Nail varnish for a while now just to see what all the fuss is about but there is no way I would spend £7.99 on one single nail varnish. So when I went in to my local TK Maxx for the first time in absolutely ages, I don't even know why I went in. I never go in because it just seems to be like a jumble sale to me and I never find anything remotely nice. I just headed over to the 3 stands of messy beauty items (Seriously nothing is laid out nicely there are things knocked over and with dirty packaging its awful!) I was just about to give up and leave as it was all crappy stuff by brands I had never heard of when I spotted a pack of Essie nail varnishes.

I got these 4 varnishes for the bargain price of £9.99. Now the only colour I have heard of is the one on the right which is Ballet Slippers so I don't know whether they are old formulas or discontinued colours but still.

From left to right the colours are Orange it obvious, Lollipop, Bordeaux and Ballet slippers. I really love the first 3 colours they are really glossy and you only need 2 coats of them to get a really good colour, I'm sorry but the picture of the swatches really don't do the colours justice. I had high hopes for Ballet slippers as I had heard so much about it via other bloggers but I was really disappointed it is basically just a clear varnish with a very, very slight pearl colour to it. I would never ever spend £7.99 on it that is for sure.

Overall I really like these nail varnishes they apply really nice and you don't need loads and loads of coats but I still don't know what the big fuss is about. I don't think they are any better than cheaper brands like Barry M.

What do you think? are you an Essie lover or do you not see what all the fuss is about?

  1. I have never tried Essie, but I always want too! I love there colour range and I think some of there polishes are just gorgeous.

    I will be heading into my local TK Maxx a little more often now to hunt some down, I know the shop is hit and miss with there stock so I guess you really have to rummage and keep going in there..
