As some of you may know, Essie polishes have finally made their arrival in Australia! After waiting for the longest time to buy Essie polishes in stores, my dreams have finally come true. I've seen several places stock these little bottles of joy such as Myer and David Jones, but these two stores are extremelyyy expensive, retailing at the $19 mark. Fortunately there is another store that sells them for than half ($6) - Cosmetics Fragrance Direct! I did a little haul post on some goodies that I had purchased from CFD (can be viewed here), it is one of my favourite places for cosmetics, perfumes and other bits and bobs as it's extremely cheap! Anyways, enough of this pointless story, onto the photos:
Without a doubt, Essie polishes are one of the best nail varnishes. The consistency is amazing and is extremely easy to apply. I did question whether these two polishes, as they are quite light shades, would take a long time to build up the colour. To my surprise, Van D'GO only took 2 coats and Absolutely Shore only took 3 coats. So I'm very impressed with the opaqueness - but I didn't expect anything less from these polishes. If you're from Australia, I highly recommend you check out your nearest CFD store, so you can snatch up a few bargains for yourself! You and see the store locator on their website here. Hope you're all having a fun filled week!
