Nails - Essie Luxedo

It feels like Winter is never ending this year, Spring is trying to break through, but the cold, wind, rain and SNOW is all around us.

For this reason, I am still reaching for my darker nail polishes. My normal go to would be 'OPI - Lincoln Park After Dark' but after I dropped it I needed a quick replacement. After having a look on the internet, people seem to compare 'Essie - Luxedo' to my firm favourite and I decided to give it a go.

I am a fan off Essie polishes, so I didn't have too much of a problem trying out a new colour. Essie describes 'Luxedo' as "suit up in this deepest plum and boldly go where no man has gone before" and with a description like that, who am I to say no.

This colour goes on smoothly and I applied two coats, when dried, even though it is described as a deep plum, it could pass for black in some lights. To finish this look I used a fast drying top coat to give the colour an additional shine and lasting power.

Overall, I like this colour and am happy to use this in the colder months, but Spring, I am ready for some colour.

  4. I'm not sure how this happened but Ive actually never tried Essie nailpolish. Everyone and their mmother has. Somehow I always seem to gravitate toward Revlon, OPI, and Maybelline. I think it's time for me to try Essie. What is a staple color of theirs that I NEED to try?

    1. How have you never tried it?? ;) For Spring/Summer I really recommend 'Tart Deco' it is described as: "chic and modern, this dreamy coral is an artistic burst of colour."

      Let me know what you think. x
