Essie – It’s Genius

Quite honestly when I was editing these photos and even as I was painting my nails with this I was wondering what came over me when I chose it. I don’t have many shimmer/chrome formula’s from Essie perhaps that’s why it jumped out as me from the stand, that and the fact it was 3 for 2 and I only really wanted 2.. I don’t know. It’s so not a shade I would choose, I think i might have a had a bit of a personality crisis in Boots because a shimmery wine colour is so utterly un-me. Granted in the bottle it does look a touch more interesting with flecks of gold that promise a duo chrome that the nails don’t really deliver but I have no-one to blame but myself for this poor colour choice. There’s nothing wrong with it of course and if your like shimmers/frosts this is very season appropriate (maybe that’s why?) and the formula is as good as any of my favourite Essie shades but I would doubt I will ever reach for it again so 3 for 2 or not it was a bit of a waste to say it will likely sit in my collection next to it’s brothers and sisters indefinitely.. oh well at least it fills a gap.

Now available at Boots and Superdrug stores nationwide.

    I haven’t seen this Essie shade before! I have to admit it isn’t my favourite colour but it is seasonally appropriate. I have made some terrible nail polish choices lately and compared to those this polish is great so don’t feel too bad that you don’t love it because you could have done a lot worse! xx
