Spice Up Summer with Essie Collection

Essie Summer Collection – Fear or Desire

a bright orange crush: DBP, Toluene and Formaldehyde free

This bottle of Essie nail polish goes for about $8 where all good nail polishes are sold. All I can say is what a difference a quality polish makes. I don’t spend that much on nail polish, and have only ever had Essie if I go for a manicure. Though I only put a base coat and 2 coats (no top coat) the polish lasted for at least 5 days. It is not a color I would have chosen myself, but I have to say it does suit me and I like it for summer.

Come link up with me over at Fabulous but Evil and show us your nail polish purchases or recommendations, pictures of your manicured nails (whether done at home or at the salon), your nail polish tips and trends, etc.

What’s your favorite polish brand?

I was given a free product because I’m a Klout influencer. I was under no obligation to receive the sample or talk about Essie. I get no additional benefits for talking about the product or company. As always all opinions are 100% my own and I only share details for products I truly like.

    I used to buy the $2 bottles of polish and rarely made it past 3 days without half of it chipping off. Since upgrading to Essie/OPI I sent a lot less time with chipped nails :)
