Essie "Bangle Jangle" NOTD

I'm really loving Essie nail polishes at the moment. I first got into them when I was pregnant because they were 3 Free (i.e. free from DPB, Toluene and Formaldehyde) and have slowly added to my collection. Bangle Jangle is my latest purchase, which was reduced down to AUD $6 from $18.95 at a discount cosmetics store at Sydney's Birkenhead Point.

Essie "Bangle Jangle" swatches

It's a greyed mauve colour which goes totally opaque in 2 coats. You can even get opacity with a single thicker coat. Day 4 and it's still going strong on my nails with only minor chipping on my index fingernail. I've heard people complain about the quality of some of the Essie shades, e.g. that they require multiple coats to get opaque, they chip, etc, but I'm yet to meet an Essie I haven't liked.

  3. Very nice pastel shade. I love the formula of Essie polishes. The brush is a little skinny but I still love them. I feel like no matter the color the consistency and opaqueness of the polishes are always good.

  4. I agree with you on that, I haven't met an Essie polish I haven't liked :) This is such a beautiful colour, I am obsessed with lilac toned anything right now.
