Essie Haul

So I decided to treat myself to some new nail polishes (like I need anymore)

Photobucket

I placed an order from a fantastic eBay seller who sells OPI, Essie, China Glaze, at bargain prices (we're talking £2-4 a bottle and the same for shipping) For the four polishes I bought including shipping it cost just under £20. (Amazing considering Essie is about £10 a bottle in the UK) The order came within less than a week and I can't recommend the seller highly enough. The seller is beautyzone2007 and you can find it here.

So here's the line up!

(L-R)
Demure Vixen, Knockout Pout, Pretty Edgy, Haute as Hello

I've swatched them all and love them all equally.
Demure Vixen is a classic mink with a twist. It has the most gorgeous pink and blue microshimmer running through it which is just gorgeous.

Knockout Pink is the ULTIMATE Barbie Pink. Word. It looks different in the bottle compared to how it looks on the nails.

Pretty Edgy is an excellent dupe for OPI's Jade is the New Black. A welcome break from my "safe" colours

Haute as Hello is a lovely coral. Just the right mix of pink and peach. A definite winner. I've got a feeling though that out of all 4 of the polishes this will be the worst to apply. I can imagine it being quite thick with a tendency to go streaky.

Will upload pics of me wearing them as an when I wear them :) I'm hoping these are all "good Essie" as we all know theres Good Essie, and Bad Essie, heres hoping they aren't the latter

  5. Hi, I haven't bought any Essie since Tart D'eco seriously stained my nails despite using base coat. Did you notice any staining with these colours?

  6. I've been doing swatches of these all week on my blog! Today's was Haute as Hello, which is so gorgeous, but the formula is really streaky. Essie sure isn't worth the money they charge, but they do have fantastic colours! I need to check out that Ebay seller to see if I can get some bargains!
