NOTD: Essie - Luscious Lips

Things I love about this polish

- The colour is simply beautiful.  A feminine, creamy baby pink.
- It applies so smoothly - no streaks in sight.
- It lasts!  Days and days!
- It's amazingly cheap when ordered from America.

The 1 thing I'm not so crazy about

- It is really sheer and therefore takes about 3 or 4 coats to get a decent colour pay off.

BUT, as it lasts so long, I probably still use less as I don't need to change the colour after 1 day.  Swings and roundabouts.. :)

A definite permanent feature in my collection I feel.  It's a perfect, every day colour that's always appropriate and classy - I love my greens and purples etc but I just feel 'polished' in colours like this.

I really rate Essie at the moment - my next purchase will definitely be Merino Cool from the latest Fall collection.

Any other Essie colour recommendations?  I can always be persuaded to buy more...


  1. That's a gorgeous colour-I want! x

  2. It's a pretty "neutral" pink. So soft.:D

    Merino Cool looks nice too.:D

    Happy Wednesday!:D

  3. Pretty colour!

    It's a bit old news now, but I love Van D'Go - definite must have! Goes on quite sheer but 3 coats = creamy peach perfection :)

  4. That is a pretty pink, that shall go no my wish list, as I haven't really got a pretty pale pink nail polish like that!

  5. I love that colour! so pretty :)


  6. love this colour, its so girlie!

  7. Marino Cool is a color I want to pick up too! Such a gorgeous shade, and Essie nail polish is a great, high quality line of products. Thanks for sharing!

  8. Ballet Slippers and Fishnet Stockings are 2 of my favs!!! They are worlds apart...Ballet Slippers is a sweet pale pink and Fishnet Stocking is a super sexy red!

  9. I like that color! I'm guessing that the additional coats are worth it. :)

  10. light pink is one of my fav nail colors, I think it's so gorgeous and simple at the same time ((:
