Manic(ure) Monday: Essie VIP Blogger


Subscribing to the newsletter of your favourite brands has a lot of advantages. For example the last newsletter I got from Essie introduced a new program for bloggers interested in nail art. Unfortunately I don't know if such a program exists in other countries as well but in the German-speaking region it does and is about press releases and nail art contests. The first 100 bloggers entering the program were promised an Essie present and as I was lucky enough to read the newsletter quite early I found a little parcel waiting for me when I came home yesterday. As a present I got the nail polishes Recessionista and Miss Fancy Pants and a glass nail file.



Today I will show you the first nail polish I got: Recessionista. I think it's an amazing colour, perfect for those who like darker shades that still look really elegant. In fact it's even a shade that has been on my wish list for so long and when it comes to the nail polishes I already own it can only be compared to the Bourjois Rouge Obscur which is a bit more reddish though.






As you can see the nail polish looks even darker on the nail than in the bottle which I totally appreciate. It is covering right from the first layer and dries really quickly. The only thing I disliked was the fact that the brush isn't quite rounded which had been the case for my old Essie polishes. I don't know why they changed it or if they just changed it for certain collections but I definitely perfered the rounded brush.

Next week I will be showing you the Miss Fancy Pants nail polish and also talk a bit about the new Essie collection. If you can't wait to see more Essie shades why don't you just take a look at my nail polish swatches list in the sidebar to discover the nail polishes I already tried?

  7. Is Essie from Germany? I never buy Essie polishes because they're $8 a bottle! I do adore their shades, though. Very lucky you got free polish!!! :)
