Day 16: Favorite Nail Polish: Essie French Affair


Hi lovelies! So, I’ve always been a huge nail polish junkie and I love experimenting with all different shades and styles. Sometimes, I go for super crazy, bold designs, whereas, occasionally I play it safe and I put on more natural shades. Honestly, it’s been quite difficult for me determine which is my absolutely favorite nail polish, but in the end I decided to go for my Essie “French Affair”. The reason being is that when it comes to my go-to mani that I obviously wear the most, I like to keep it classic and more elegant.

If you are like me and you like more ladylike shades, Essie’s nail polish is a great option. It’s light, baby pink with a tiny bit of purple undertones to it. I was quite impressed with its opacity, because usually with the light colors, I noticed that it’s quite difficult to get the opacity you need in just 1-2 coats. With this one, however, it was super easy to get it as opaque as in the picture with just two thin layers. 

It’s not the fastest drying nail polish, but it isn’t that bad, to be honest. I like that it dries to a nice glossy finish and it’s doesn’t chip easily. I can wear it for some good 5 days and don’t have a single chip! :)

Good alternatives to this shade are also Essie’s “Ballet Slippers” or My Very First Knockwurst” from the OPI Germany Collection for Fall 2012.

Hope you enjoyed reading! 

Let me know which your favorite nail polish is! I’d love to know! :))

XO,
Andrea

  1. That's a very pretty pink color! If you love pink polishes I would suggest Sinful Colors in Easy Going. Definitely my favorite at the moment. It's such a beautiful pale pink color. I have it on right now and I get so many compliments on it.
