Essence Nail Polish Review: The Nudes

Do you remember me talking about the new nail polishes from Essence’s The Pastels range a few weeks ago? Today I have two more bottled goodies to show you! They belong to the other recent range of theirs called The Nudes. 

Essence The Nudes Nail Polish Review, Hope for Love, Pure Soul

Unlike The Pastels nail polishes, which are matte, these have a creamy, glossy finish – my fave! ‘07 Hope for Love‘ is a darker pink shade. It applies like a dream, requires two coats and has an average staying power. The only problem is that it doesn’t look best with my skintone, so I might be passing this one on to someone else.

05 Pure Soul‘, on the other hand, is here to stay. A light pink nude with a suble, barely visible irridescent shimmer will definitely be repacing my beloved Essie Fiji, which I have sadly just ran out of. Thankfully, there was no streakiness going on when I was applyin it, but it did require two to three coats. You should also know that it is not completely opaque. Even after three coats, my nail tips were still slightly visible, but since it is a classy, almost french mani type of a nude shade, it personally doesn’t bother me. Have you tried any of The Nudes yourself? Are there any other shades I should check out?

    I like the pink one, even though I usually choose red nail polishes 🙂

      You can't go wrong with a classic red! I haven't worn it in ages on my nails, though.
