essie, watermelon

Essie Watermelon, £7.99
A nail polish brand that I always lust over is Essie, with its classy bottles and unique shade range.

I have a few in my collection already, including Figi, Mint Candy Apple and Van D'Go but I was really attracted to Watermelon after reading one of my favourite blogs, gh0stparties.

It's between a pink and a red and it's obviously the colour of a watermelon inside! I love how fresh and unusual the shade is and it even has a slight shimmer to it, but not overtly noticeable.

The only gripe I have with this polish is that I have found it to chip really easily/quickly. I haven't found my other shades do this as much but I think I only applied one coat, so perhaps it needs that extra coverage to stay put.

Another thing that holds me back from building up my Essie collection is the price; although I had a £2 voucher from Boots this time round, making the polish £5.99 when it would normally be £7.99. I think the retail price is pretty steep but I think the cute packaging and the variety of shades just about makes up for that right?

Who else loves the Essie polishes and their originality?
