Essie Neo Whimsical - Mini Nail Polish Review

Essie Neo Whimsical
Good afternoon! I've been having a bit of an Essie obsession lately, especially with the crazy Fragrance Direct discounts going on. I'm still feeling a bit under the weather and all bunged up (I think there's a bug going round my family or something!), so Neo Whimsical - which is my newest Essie purchase - has been the perfect 'lazy nails' polish for me. 
The colour is a really pretty nude pink/lilac tone that is enough to show that I've made a bit of effort, but not so nothingy (is that a word?) that it doesn't look like I have a polish on at all. 
My favourite thing about Essie polishes is definitely their brushes, they're quite wide which makes them super easy to apply in a hurry; perfect for people like that me that find nail painting a bit tedious! 
As for the formula, it actually lasted a lot longer than Mint Candy Apple which only tends to stay perfect for a day or two on my nails. - It actually lasted a full week with only minimal chipping, which I was very happy about! ...Thank you Essie for yet another lovely polish.

Are you a fan of Essie, or do you think they're a bit over hyped?

  2. Must add this to my collection! I'm always hesitant to buy Essie polishes because of the price, but they have an incredible range of colours!

  3. That color is gorgeous! It looks like the color I'm looking for in a lip color haha! And speaking of lasting longer, I just bought Sand Tropez like last week, and it didn't start chipping until day 5! So, I think they've changed their formula.
