Mani Monday! Essie Favourites to Fall For Duo Set

12:07:00 PM

Hello Chicsters!



Its Mani Monday!!! At least that is what I tell myself to beat my Monday blues. I had been wanting to try Essie nail enamels for the longest time and when I finally got them last Easter I loved them so much that I forgot all about reviewing them. I had gone to Debenhams to pick up the shade Sole Mate as I had heard so much about it but when I came across this gorgeous duo set without a doubt I added them to my cart.
Essie Favourites to Fall For Duo 

Price: £12.99 but sadly the set has been discontinued so the shades can be purchased individually for £7.99

Claims: Choose our two favourite essie shades this fall, so chic it's almost criminal.
Chinchilly: jet set cool. a sleek granite gray polish that positively radiates urban chic and subtle sophistication. this luxe of lacquers goes with everything.
Bahama Mama: anytime is the right time for warm deep plum polish. creamy and rich this tropical beauty works winter, spring, summer or fall – gorgeous is always in fashion.DBP, Toluene and Formaldehyde free

Results: The Essie Favourites to Fall For duo set comprises of two stunning fall/winter shades named Chinchilly and Bahama Mama. Chinchilly is a gorgeous cool toned grey shade. Though this looks like a normal gray shade in the pictures but somehow this is the first gray shade that I am really fond of. While as Bahama Mama is a rich and creamy deep berry shade. 
The nail enamels have the classic Essie bottle packaging as you can see in the pictures above. The brush is pretty good and doesn't leave strokes behind, it is a bit thinner than the other drugstore nail enamels in the market. 
The Chinchilly shade is bit sheer on the first application but after two coats it looks absolutely opaque. On the other hand the Bahama Mama shade is opaque in one coat itself. 
To increase the durability I always apply a base coat due to which it easily lasts for 4-5days. The fading is minimum and there is minimal chipping off after 4 days.

Overall Verdict: If you haven't tried Essie nail enamels as of yet you really ought to try them! The color options and the staying power both are lovely. I will most certainly recommend you to try these.
