Essie Nail Polish Haul + Swatches

Hello everyone,

Recently one sunny Saturday afternoon I headed into Myer to have a look at what I could buy with a Myer Giftcard that was soon to expire. I wanted to take full advantage of the End of Financial Year sales so I had deliberatly left it to the last minute. Along with two amazing new pairs of vibrantly coloured bras I also ended up at the Essie stands (of course). Then out of the corner of my eye I saw big baskets of heavily reduced makeup/polish, and what did you know - I found ESSIE!

After at least a good 15-20 minutes of trying to decide which polishes to choose I ended up buying:
    • Essie 'Tie The Knot' (640)            RRP= 18.95 AUD   I got it for = $9.45   AUD
    • Essie 'Sand Tropez' (745)             RRP= 18.95 AUD   I got it for = $10.00 AUD
    • Essie 'Spaghetti Strap' (560)         RRP= 18.95 AUD   I got it for = $9.45   AUD
    • Essie 'Mint Candy Apple' (702)      RRP= 18.95 AUD   I got it for = $13.26 AUD
    • Essie 'Knockout Pout' (723)          RRP= 18.95 AUD   I got it for = $10.00 AUD
    • Essie 'Sexy Divide' (666)              RRP= 18.95 AUD   I got it for = $9.45   AUD 

    • Essie '3-Way Glaze' (6023)           RRP= 18.95 AUD   I got it for = FREE
    • Essie 'Top Coat' (6020)                RRP=18.95 AUD    I got it for = FREE

TOTAL SAVING OF = $89.99 AUD   (including FREE items)

 What is Essie's secret to its success?
“The polishes satisfy two needs,” says Essie. “They’re classic yet fashionable. You can be a little bit more daring on some days, or more elegant on others. But the beauty is, no matter which color you choose, if your nails are done, your look is finished. It pulls everything together.”

What are your thoughts on Essie polishes? How do they compare with other higher price polishes on the market? Are they worth the hype?

Have a beautiful week!
