Essie Cute as a Button

Ok, so I’m picking up the pace with the nail polish backlog – it’s either that or stop buying them and that isn’t going to happen!

I ordered this online last week without actually seeing it in the flesh; Always a risk, but one that paid off because it was love at first sight – I actually shrieked when I opened the box. You see, I actually searched all last summer for a shade just like this one, which I would call the perfect bright coral. I came close with Revlon’s Tropical, but that airs more towards the orange side of coral, whereas this little gem is a pinky coral – unfortunately my camera doesn’t agree! It’s much pinker than the pictures reflect and brighter too.
Out came the sun on Sunday and out came my newest, brightest, bestest nail polish... Essie’s Cute as a Button.

Application was fairly easy, I like the brush but the formula did go a little glupey, maybe that’s down to the heat but I had to be quick to prevent it drying before I was finished perfecting my strokes. The shade is fairly opaque with a decent colour payoff with just one coat, but it look a further two coats to get an even coverage.
This is only my second Essie polish. I like the brand, I love the colours but I don’t think the formula is quite as good as OPI but I love this shade, it’s an instant hit for me and my go to nail polish for the summer!

Essie 15ml polishes retail for £9.95 in the UK. Check out the LookFantastic sale, this was £7.95, some shades have been reduced to £5.95!
