Product Review: Essie Raspberry Nail Polish

Friday, 11 April 2014

Last week I was on a mission to find a deep berry coloured nail polish. I headed straight to the Essie stand at my local Priceline, as I hadn't tried Essie yet (cue gasp!). I am so glad I bit the bullet and jumped on the Essie bandwagon as my experience with the Essie Raspberry Nail Polish has been nothing but positive.

Essie Raspberry Nail Polish is a deep pinky-red berry colour. I can see myself wearing this quite a bit during the cooler months.

My Essie Raspberry Nail Polish experience:
  • Application was a breeze. The consistency of the polish is perfect. Not too runny, not too thick.
  • The colour pay off is fantastic. 2 coats provided me with an opaque streak-free coverage.
  • It took a good few days to chip. This is a big deal considering my nails chip easily and I am always using my hands at work.
  • It dried fairly quickly (always a plus).
  • It is so shiny you don't need a topcoat to provide shine. However, I always wear a topcoat anyway.

All in all Essie Raspberry Nail Polish is a great nail product. I can't fault it. No complains here, that is for sure. 

One I will be doing in the near future is picking myself up some more Essie polishes (especially when they are on special).

Essie Nail Polish is available from Priceline for $16.95 (13.5ml).
