One of my newest editions into my nail polish collection is Essie's Mod Squad which my boyfriend kindly gifted to me (you can read all about it here). Mod Squad is an amazingly vibrant hot pink which is perfect for the spring/summer. It's also the perfect shade for when I want to show off my girlier side or wanting to add a pop of colour.
First off I want to apologise about the slightly chipped nails. I took these photos after a WEEK of wear, which included working and going to a music festival. Considering all that, this polish has held up quite well. Usually any nail polish, no matter what brand will chip on me after 2-3 days max. So for this polish to last a week is quite astonishing!
I used two coats of Mod Squad and Essence's Gel Look top coat. As with all Essie polishes, application was amazing as well as opacity. For Essence's Gel Look, I do think it gives the nail polish a nice shine, however it makes drying time 100000000 times longer. So I definitely do not recommend this top coat for anyone who is impatient like me!
Essie is available in Australia at large department stores such as David Jones and Myer for approx $19. However, I buy mine from Cosmetic Fragrance Direct as it's about 60% cheaper than department stores - $6! Have an amazing day girls!
