Essie Nail Lacquer in Avenue Maintain : Photos, Review, NOTD

After reviewing a stunning red nail enamel from Essie [see HERE], today I chose a parisian blue shade called 'Avenue Maintain'. Both the shades are a part of the Essie Spring 2013 Madison Ave-Hue Collection. Yes, I bought all the 6 shades from the collection and after the bright shades all pretty pastels are lined up for the review. Be prepared to see only Essie NOTDs for the next 6 months here ;) If you don't know which is parisian blue then this shade is exactly the one ! Hats off to Essie for bringing out the shade perfectly.

The quality of these nail lacquers are one of the best I have tried so far. Irrespective of how the brush is these nail colors would do magic on your nails. Even the most shaky hands would be able to apply perfect coats of nail color with this nail enamel. One coat of this nail color gives a nice opaque finish, however I have gone with one more coat in the NOTD pictures shared here. This is another product that no one can have just one and I am glad I got eight of them !

The shade Avenue Maintain is a blue color nail enamel and the shade is the perfect parisian blue shade. If you google for parisian blue then you would know how exact and clean the shade Avenue Maintain is.

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.

Essie nail polishes are the best of all the nail enamels I have tried till now and there is more than a single reason for me to love these nail polishes. One would be the formula and second would be the color options available - it is enormous. I am sure you will love their pastels, blues and greens a lot. I definitely need a white and black from Essie and I will buy them soon. I highly recommend all you girls to try the Essie Nail lacquers.
