Summer seems to have missed us entirely in the UK, I know a few pockets have experienced good weather of late, however Edinburgh has been predominantly sun free and I've just not been feeling the summery nail shades, tending to favour deep reds or a plain french manicure.
However, I was in boots the other day and decided to pick up Essie Fiji having read many rave reviews about it, and the rest of the diffusion line in Boots and Superdrug. Priced at £7.99 they are a mid range polish with high end qualities - you can forget wasting your money on more expensive polishes from now on.
The brush on the new line is amazing! A flat, round tipped brush means Essie is super easy to apply and streaks are non-existent, it also makes application very quick and easy. This particular colour requires 2 coats for that perfectly opaque finish seen above and for extra sheen it is worth popping on your favourite top coat, this will also help prevent chipping!
It really is a beautiful polish and I understand why it has been so popular this summer, so get down to your nearest Essie counter and pick this up, you will not regret it!
