NOTD: Fiji

fiji essie swatch review

I’ve been trying to capture the shade of this nail polish for months now, but I give up. My camera just doesn’t want to pick up the slight pink undertone, which makes this nail polish super chic. Unfortunatelly, my swatch looks plain white, so please check google if you want to see the right colour. Ok, enough with the rant. Essie’s Fiji is definitely one of my favourite shades. It is the perfect nude for my nails! It looks very classy and has all the positive features of Essie nail polishes. The shade is opaque with two coats, it lasts long on my nails and applies beautifully! It is one of those shades that you can wear all the time and also one of those that you end up repurchasing. 

P.S. I’ve heard that Essie nail polishes are now finally avaliable in Slovenia! I don’t know if this is good for me or not. I can totally see myself purchasing the whole stand and then going broke…

    I've always wanted to find a good white polish! The cameras sometimes fail to show the beauty of a colour.

    In every swatch I've seen the polish does look nearly white! But I have seen the bottle in person and it's definitely more of a light pink. So pretty and delicate. I was tossing up between Fiji and Revlon's Pale Cashmere. I opted for the Revlon but I wish I had picked up Fiji as well (even though they are practically the same colour, lol).
