Current Nail Favourite




Since first applying Essie’s Trophy Wife, it has very rarely left my nails. This varnish is one of the few that I find myself reapplying as soon as it starts chipping, as my other polishes seem boring in comparison.

When I first spied this polish on countless beauty blogs, I knew that I had to bag it, as the beautiful ocean blue/ emerald shade is among my all time favourite colours. At this time of year, I usually gravitate to the more spring-like pastel hues, however this shade is a decedent and more striking alternative.

The formula lives up to the usual Essie standards, with the chunky brush and opacity making for an easy and quick application. I apply two coats because of my obsessive strive for the perfect finish, but even after one coat the colour looks beautiful. I personally like to wear dark colours on my fingernails, but for those who prefer more neutral tones, this would be a lovely choice for toenails.


What is your current favourite nail polish?

    1. The finish is gorgeous- Essie polishes are always so glossy even before a top coat :)
