Essie: Case Study



Name: Case Study

Collection: Essie’s Fall 2011 Book Bag

Colour: Taupe/ Camel

Coats: 1 coat

Pros: This was the first Essie polish that I have ever tried, and I must say I am very happy with it. It was so quick and easy to apply! Only one, fast drying coat left a smooth and polished finish. I was impressed with how long it lasted (4 days) with only one coat.


Cons: This is not a high shine polish and the colour is a neutral so it’s not the most exciting look. Additionally, it can look a little dull on some skin tones because of its green undertones.

  2. I love the coverage with this polish as I don't have much patience for the drying in-between coats.

  7. What a lovely taupe colour! 3 days with only 1 coat? pretty impressive. I usually wear 2 coats + top coat so it lasts :) xx

    1. Thanks Judy, this is my kind of polish, long wearing, one coat and quick drying. I hope to feature more Essie polishes to see if all there polishes are similar.

    1. Thanks Alexa, yeah a neutral colour is great for those times when you have to look professional and not overstated! This one fits the bill.

  9. I like this colour. I am into browns these days and this would probably look great on me. I'd have to look it up and get it for myself.

    Thanks so much for the review.

  30. What a lovely, creamy colour! I actually like the fact that it has no high shine polish! So your con is actually my pro :)
    The colour suits your skin tone really well. With these colours it's kinda risky!
