The Review: The Forgotten Favourite

It’s no secret that my February Favourites were put together in a mad rush – even so there’s still one product that I can’t quite believe I forgot! Essie’s Meet Me at Sunset is a gorgeous orange toned red that matched perfectly with Topshops Firecracker Lipstick – my other red/orange favourite.

Essie polishes aren’t known for their formulas, and although this one doesn’t quite match up to my all time favourite formulas in Accessorize and Topshop – it doesn’t fail as badly as other Essie polishes. It lasted a good 4 days with no chips, and even when a pesky little corner flaked off, it was easily filled back in using the outer corner of the brush.

It’s worth noting that this post has been typed out with completely un-lacquered finger tips. I’m a little run down and my nails are now flake and break city. Never fear, there is one polish that will make everything better and restore my nails to their previous state. What is it you ask? Maybe I’ll save that for another day…

    Gorgeous colour! I've never tried an Essie because of the hearsay about the chipping x

    Yeah, Essie is really hit or miss. People used to tell me to try the pastels or sheer colors, but I had trouble with them chipping or getting gloopy. They must do reds pretty well, because I have Garnet and that never gives me trouble.

    Pretty colour. Essie have so many gorgeous shades. I hardly own any. I need to add a few more to my collection, they're great quality and now that they sell them in Boots and Superdrug they're easier to get your hands on
