Essie For the Twill of It

November 8, 2013

I’ll be honest, I’m not in love with this polish. But I heard about it online and people were going gaga over it. However, I don’t like metallic-ish polishes that show brush strokes. And this one, while very lovely, definitely shows brush strokes. Sad to say I took it off immediately after taking photos.

The colors are really cool, though. I think I’ll be giving it away to a friend instead of keeping it. :)

    Ugg I am with you about the brush strokes thing. I have found with a few of my essie that if I put it on super thick it will smooth out nicely, but not all.

    Brush strokes are the worst. I have some beautiful essie metallics and I can’t seem to get rid of the brush strokes. Ugh!

    You can send it to me! I think it is lovely! I just got devil’s advocate from Essie. It’s such a dark plum color that most people thought it was black. :-/ but I like it anyways!

    Aww I have been eyeing this polish for awhile and having just seen your swatch, I too am disappointed in how it looks outside the bottle. I bought the OPI Russian navy just cos I thought it looked (at the time) it looked just like this And purple orchid from sensationail. Looks totally different hah!
