Essie – Snap Happy

Here’s the second of my Essie Winter Collection swatches.. the 3rd I think will come closer to Christmas Eve as I plan to wear Leading Lady for the big day. I’m not usually a big fan of opaque red shades, I think red looks best of super short nails but my nails always look long and I’m of the opinion that long red nails can read a little trashy. That being said this is the happiest, Christmassiest red ever so I will definitely revisit before Winter is over, I only wish I’d had it earlier in the month. I have a sheer black glitter top coat from NYC I’m dying to try over this to create a little more of a vampy effect but alone it’s very pretty and super glossy. As with most of my Essie opaques it chips pretty quickly so I only wore this for a couple of days but I will reach for it again. Two coats with the super wide brush and I’m done. perfect for last minute party nails.

Available from Boots stores nationwide, I bought the mini’s kit which includes 3 for £9.99


I wanted to make special mention of the previous swatch ‘Beyond Cozy’, it lasted on my nails a whole week before chips appeared. I wrote it up too soon and wanted to let you know while it’s still available that if you love glitter and you love gold that is an absolute must have!
