Essie Nail Lacquer in Hip-Anema : Photos, Review, NOTD

Essie Nail Polishes were in my wish list but I never thought I would even try them once ! It all looked so distance and too pretty for me to be holding it. Finally, it did happen one day and I was lucky enough to get not just one but eight nail enamels with me !! Yippe !! I didn't know which one I should review first as each shade I own looked gorgeous in its own way. After a quick look I decided to start with the brightest and boldest of all shades I had - Hip Anema.

Description

The essie nail lacquers comes in the usual packaging with the name of the shade written in the shade color at the top of the lid. The brush is dense and broad like the ones found in L'Oreal Color Riche Nail Enamels and it fans out really well. The consistency is amazing and when it joins hand with the amazing brush it makes the application really easy. All I need is just one swipe for the color to show and 2 swipes to cover my entire nails ! When I am in a hurry I just pick up an essie nail color as it gives neat opaque nails in seconds. I never went wrong/ messy while using essie nail enamels.

Hip-Anema is a gorgeous red shade that looks more orangey red in pictures but it is a true red with orange tones to it that looks more red than orange directly. I love the color either way !

Price

The cost of Essie Nail Lacquer is $8.50 which is Rs.500 (approx) for 13.5 ml of the product. I got it for almost the same price or even lesser but I saw these being sold for up to Rs.2000 online !!


Verdict

The essie nail enamels are one of the best nail lacquers I have tried so far. Be it the formula, the brush, the bottle or just anything - it is just mind blowing. I could easily call this the best quality nail lacquer I have in my collection. I would highly recommend all of you to try these and if given a chance I would definitely pick up another half a dozen [or even more] nail lacquers from essie. I am glad I already have eight and keep watching this space for some pretty pastel shades.
