Essie ‘Good to Go’ Top Coat 15.00€
After a quiet couple of weeks I’m back with the namesake of the Essie Resort collection, ‘Resort Fling’. The shade is being marketed as a “coral peach” – a quite spot-on description. Being in a spring-y mood I figured it would make a girly, feel- good choice. Alas, I was bitterly disappointed. Applying this (very un-Essie like, ridiculously thin formula) was a nightmare… The 1st coat was all over the place – streaky & uneven- and even though the 2nd coat did improve things, it just didn’t improve then enough. I did not bother with a 3rd coat (since my nails would take forever to dry) & was left with many uneven patches – especially around the nail-bed areas. Conclusion? I wanted to give this a chance (despite the rather negative reviews) but I’m afraid I can’t in good conscience recommended it to anyone…
getting this color!
