Essie - Blanc

es2

A couple of weeks ago I was at my girl Tali's place and she had perfectly painted white nails, I knew I couldn't resist and had to get involved. I have always loved white on my nails, I know some people can't stand that tippex-esque look but me on the other hand - I adore it! I love the contrast of white with my skin tone and Essie's 'Blanc' is definitely the ONE! Now let's discuss white nail polish for a minute, I find it so difficult to find that perfect white polish that applies effortlessly  with minimal mess and streaks. From the whites I have used in the past I always find I have to apply one too many coats for it to at least look acceptable.

I must admit I was so pleasantly surprised by this Essie polish, I think Essie have a great variety of colours but I never really get on with the consistency of them. This 'Blanc' on the other hand is perfection as far as white polishes go. I also used Tali's topcoat the Nails inc. Kensington gel coat and I was so impressed. I didn't think I would find anything that would come close to my beloved Seche Vite but I have to say this one is definitely one to try. 

Oh and lastly, this didn't chip for days! I was so impressed! Love it.. 

What have you been rocking lately?

Lots of Love

  2. The nail polish looks amazing. I've wanted to wear a white nail polish for so long but I'm scared of the tipex look haha. Although it looks so good with your skin tone! Really tempted to try it now :) xoxo
