Review: Essie's Flawless

I can't remember exactly when, but a few months ago, Essie nail polishes became readily available in the UK. I was very very very excited to try them. Firstly, because I have heard amazing things about them and secondly, because Kate Middleton wore a mixture of Essie's Allure and Bourjois' Rose Lounge on her nails for her wedding.

I quite literally sprinted from my house to the Essie stand knowing for a fact that I would buy Allure, but when I got there, the colour did not appeal to me. At all. I was going to head home and have a good comfort binge, but then, Flawless, No. 21, caught my attention. There was only one bottle left on the stand and admit it- we all know how we get when there is only one left of something!

It took me less than 10 seconds to cave and pick it up, much to the dismay of the girl behind me. I went to the till and paid the eye-watering £7.99, unsure of what to expect.

I am pleased to say, I ADORE IT! I can completely and utterly justify the money I spent because I have repainted my nails over and over again. The brush is phenomenal- I only need one sweep to coat my whole nail, and only 2 coats for full opacity. The polish lasts a good 4 days WITHOUT base coat or even topcoat, which to me is amazing. I will definitely be picking more of these up in the foreseeable future.

The Essie polishes are available in the larger Boots stores, and have been available in the US/Canada for quite some time.

So there you have it folks, my first proper post. Hope you enjoyed!
