The other day I was just casually popping into a drugstore to pass some time waiting for an appointment when I stumbled upon probably the best Essie display I have ever come across. Instead of the usual vertical display that is in all the Dutch etos stores, this particular DA drugstore had a gorgeously bright lit built in display. And the best part, I saw some bottles from my favorite nail polish brand with a nice red little sticker saying '50% off'.
I checked out the bottles and to my joy I saw that they were colors from previous collections that I had actually wanted to buy, but it had proven to be impossible, because they were always sold out.
I bought five essie polishes, because I totally needed them, right? From the older collections 'Poppy-razzi' and 'Bikini so teeny'.
Clockwise, starting at 9:45.
Lights / Cascade Cool / Fear or Desire / Camera / Action
Each of them brilliantly bright summer shades, that I personally cannot wait to wear around town. (I might be going against the winter rules by wearing Lights right now). You can tell from Lights and Action that the pigment has seemed to drop down a little bit. This worried me at first but after a good shake of the bottle before application the colors have mixed and it still applies beautifully to the nail. As do all of Essie polishes.
Mrs. Weingarten sure knows how to design her colors and I'm so glad her hybrid brand has come to drugstores across the world.
