Essie Nail Polish 

The other day, I was in Walgreens, and I noticed that they had a few essie nail polish colors on clearance, so I bought two of them! I went for a dark pink and a bright red because these are shades that I use all the time.

Essie nail polish will typically set you back $8.50 per bottle, which isn’t terribly expensive, but it’s still way more expensive than my favorite brand Sinful Colors (which you can get for $2). I remembered trying this brand several years ago, but I couldn’t remember how I felt about it. I wanted to give it another try because this is such a popular brand.

Unfortunately, I really hated the formulation of these nail polishes. First, I found the brush to be way too narrow for my liking. I much prefer a broad brush, but you might like this product if you prefer something very narrow. I also disliked the texture of the formula – it was almost too sticky and it was very difficult to apply. Now, to be fair, I did get two clearance bottles, so maybe they were so old that the formula was starting to go bad? In any case, they ended up looking kind of gloopy and they took forever to dry.

I think I’ll be sticking to Sally Hansen (they have broad brushes) or Sinful Colors (they have a very smooth formula that is easy to apply and dries quickly).

Have you used this product? What did you think? What are your favorite nail color brands?

Thanks for reading!
