    I love your mani, its really cute, love the dotticure its simple but sweet. I have maybe a dozen essies and my experience with them has been mostly good. My main issue is you just don’t know what its gonna be like so like you I tend to buy them on special as they’re a lot of money here in Australia. Perhaps google individual colors before you buy them.

    • Thank you so much Anette. And thanks for there feedback. They are also quite pricey here, one of the most expensive brands (beaten by OPI and Zoya) but I completely agree. I think my main issue is the inconsistency with the brand. I like knowing a polish is going to have a good formula even if the colour isn’t always or if it is sheer. Definitely will have to google before I buy.

  2. Lovely manicure!! This would probably look good in matte as well 🙂

    Essie and me don’t go along very well. Other polishes (Zoya, OPI) can stay on my nails for at least 3-4 days without chips but Essie chips within a day…
    That said, some colors I really like so I buy them anyway, knowing I will have to paint my nails the next day or at least retouch them.

    • Thanks so much Joyce, I didn’t even think of matte but I agree with you.
      Essie does have some really nice colours but I don’t love the inconsistency. I also think Essie has more issues with body chemistry than any other.

    I’ve had pretty good luck with Essie. I like their brushes because I like small brushes. I think their collections are sometimes not the most exciting color-wise. I’ve also heard their formulas can be inconsistent, but I don’t think I’ve come across a bad one myself. My all-time favorite is a magenta called Big Spender and I also love Naughty Nautical (teal). I like Orange, It’s Obvious (orange, duh, haha) and Jamaican Me Crazy (raspberry), too. Some other “famous” good ones are Mojito Madness (green), Mesmerize (blue), and Bikini So Teeny (baby blue).

    • Thanks for the suggestions Lesley. I agree their collections aren’t always that amazing but every now and then they do have a really nice colour. I am not sure about the inconsistency though :/
