Review Post #008 (a re-review)

I feel like I never gave Play Date by Essie a fair review because the photos I took then didn’t do it justice. I was in a hurry while applying the polish as I had several different kinds to try out and was a bit too excited. I’m sure you all know how that goes! Because of this I decided to sit down and show you how this polish actually looks when applied correctly (or at least as correctly as a beginner like myself can apply it, haha).

The first three photos used artificial lighting and the rest used natural sunlight. To the naked eye it looks more like the last few photos but in the right lighting it certainly appears to be a neon purple [as it looks in the first two photos]. Enjoy!

I would also like to share an update on a polish I applied a few days ago, Essie’s Fishnet Stockings. I wore it for two days and this photo was taken at the end of the 2nd day after hand washing a sink full of dishes. As you can see there is only one teensy tiny chip on the tip of my ring finger but the rest of it still looks absolutely flawless. I am becoming more and more convinced that my Essie polishes might just be the most superior brand in my quickly growing collection. At first I balked at the idea of spending $7.75 a bottle (you can get it for this price at Wal-mart which is as cheap as you’ll find it unless you have a card for a beauty supply store that carries it or find it online for a cheaper price) but then I realized it’s worth every penny. I would rather buy one bottle of Essie than two bottles of anything else. It’s about quality, not quantity, amiright?

Expect more posts as the day goes on!
