|Essie A crewed interest £8.99/€12 - 2 coats|
The other day I was rummaging in my nail polish box and I discovered this little, still-untouched, gem.
A crewed interest was part of the Essie 2012 spring collection but it's still pretty easy to find online, in fact I purchased mine for a ridiculous 2£ price tag during a sale a couple of months ago.
It's a creamy neutral peach, very spring-ish and versatile. Definitely not a ground breaking color, but it's easy-to-wear and quite flattering since there's not too much white in it. What really makes it noteworthy tho is the brush.
I've heard my fellow British bloggers swear by the new Essie brush before but this is the first time I got to try it. It's very similar to the Dior one - which is the best nail polish applicator I've ever tried -, just a bit more flexible and slightly squared. I expected a creamy nail polish such as this one to apply a little streaky but the brush made application easy and even in pretty much one coat. Essie was already one of my favorite nail polish brands but with the new brush is seriously making a bid for the top 3.
To spiced it up a little I added a bit of Nicole by OPI Disco dolls - a fine antique gold glitter mix with bigger rainbow accents - and a light sprinkle of MAC Gold glitter but it's a really lovely shade on its own.
Are you still rocking your favorite winter shades or you're feeling the need for some spring colors like I am?
