Essie Cute As A Button

Colour- This pink is so beautiful. I wasn’t actually expecting to love it, I just bought it because I’ve heard so much hype about Cute As A Button. It’s so popular it’s almost a chiche. The colour’s really beautiful fluorescent pinky-coral, the only drawback is that in the pictures above, I’m wearing three coats and I still think it’s not completely opaque. I’m a one-coat-of-nail-polish kinda girl, so this isn’t great. But the colour is great, and I will still use it. The formula actually seems a lot thinner than the other two I’ve tried. Those two look almost shellac-like, a lot like the Barry M Gelly Hi Shine range with only two coats, but this one is three coats and still really thin. 

Price– £7.99 from Boots or Superdrug, well worth the price.

Quality&Application- As I mentioned in the Colour section, it is really thin. But it doesn’t highlight imperfections as much as the other two I’ve tried, and it’s still gorgeous.

Packaging- I love it! It’s a really gorgeous 13.5ml bottle, I like the white polish top, most of mine are black so it really stands out. Love:)

Lasts for- I normally only wear nail polish for a day, I only get two days a week to wear nail polish and I aim to use as many colours as possible!:) From what I’ve read on other blogs and seen so far on my nails though, it seems pretty chip resistant.

Overall- I love this polish just as much as I’ve loved the other two. The colour is stunning, and I’ll definitely get a lot of wear out of it. Take a look at the blue and orange I tried!:)


I’m actually really sad I’ve run out of shades to try, but I’ll definitely be getting more. Let me know what your favourite shades are! I’ve been looking at Mint Candy Apple because that looks lovely too.

Essie First Impressions | Tart Deco


Another little mini-review today:) I like doing mini reviews. I’ve got a few new things to blog about, and I’m thinking about doing mini-reviews rather than one big post? Let me know what you’d rather read:)

Essie Tart Deco

Colour- It’s actually not as orange as it looks in these pictures, k? The fourth picture is probably the most accurate representation. It’s an almost florescent orange-y peach colour (yes. Another one. I know. I have a problem), which is beautiful. It would look absolutely amazing with a tan, which unfortunately I will never have, but it’s lovely all the same.

Price– £7.99 from Boots or Superdrug, well worth the price.

Quality&Application- The quality is brilliant, I have two coats on in the pictures above, and looks surprisingly shiny. It dries fairly quickly too. The application was really easy, the brush is brilliant and really wide, so you only have to do two strokes across your nail. The only drawback is that it will highlight imperfections on your nail, but I think that has more to do with the colour than the quality of the polish.

Packaging- I love it! It’s a really gorgeous 13.5ml bottle, I like the white polish top, most of mine are black so it really stands out. Love:)

Lasts for- I normally only wear nail polish for a day, I only get two days a week to wear nail polish and I aim to use as many colours as possible!:) From what I’ve read on other blogs and seen so far on my nails though, it seems pretty chip resistant.

Overall- I am loving this polish, another Essie in my top 20!:) I’ve only got one more colour to try, sadly, which will be posted tomorrow. You can have a look at the first polish I tried here.
