NOTD/Review: Essie Fiji

Essie – Fiji (“an opaque creamy pale pink”)
Seche Vite Topcoat

I bought this without reading any reviews… and as far as nail polishes go, this rates poorly on makeupalley. I read the reviews right before trying it out and I was a bit scared.

Most negative reviews mentioned how streaky it is… but I feel like the color is worth the pain of application and number of coats. I had to do 3 coats per nail and I think if I did 4 it would look even better. It is difficult to find a light pink that is opaque. This is a truebaby pink (SO light pink I’m sure you can barely tell in the photo)

It’s not chalky enough to wash you out..Some reviews also mention how tanned it makes your hands/feet look… which is a plus for Spring/Summer. This polish reminds me of asian strawberry milk drinks! :) If you’re comfortable with a tricky application I recommend it… the color is so feminine and pretty in the end.

Rating: 3.8/5
