Essie Leading Lady Nail Polish


 

First and foremost, I absolutely love this colour. It’s so different; a classic red nail varnish with an intense shimmery twist. It really makes a statement yet it’s not too glittery so it does not look festive and therefore is not limited to December!

I had not tried an Essie nail varnish before and was quite surprised at how big the brush was compared to others I’ve used. This was a good thing though as it meant the nail varnish took less time to apply and fewer strokes.

I applied a nail strengthening base coat, then two coats of Essie Leading Lady, then finished with a top coat of clear nail varnish to make it last longer. It stayed on for 4 days without chipping.

I would sum this up as: a glittery nail varnish for all year round. It’s unique and bold; I felt like I had false nails on. It’s definitely my favourite nail polish ever!

What do you think? Has anyone else tried this nail varnish? What are your opinions on other Essie nail varnishes?

Price: £8 (Available at Boots)

    1. Haha your comment made me laugh! So like me! It lasted about 3 and a half days until it started to chip- I put a clear top coat on to prolong it but its still longer than most! Xx
