Hi everyone!

This year was the year that I heard of Essie nail polishes and considering all the hype they received through blogs and YouTube videos, it wasn't too hard to find out about them. I've never really been that into nail polishes, yet when I saw them, I immediately wanted every single colour. Then, to my complete surprise, as Luxembourg isn't really known to stock many decent products in the shops, I came across Essie polishes in Auchan (they can also be found in some Cactus shops, for example in the Belle Etoile). I bought two that day, and have kept buying more ever since (and when my purse allows!).

So far I own nine colours and three nail care polishes. They cost 9.98€ each, which, for a nail polish, seems like a lot, to me, but that could be because I'm a bit of an amateur when it comes to nails. However, I love the quality of them, and they are very easy to use, so I do recommend them. And the names are all really fun and cute.
Nail Polishes:

Peach Daiquiri: a peachy coral

Buy Me A Cameo: a frosted, satin mocha

Which are your favourite Essie polishes? Have you tried any of these?


  1. Mademoiselle and peach daiquiri look like they need to join my collection haha! I'm always tempted by these everytime I spot them in Superdrug but they're so much more expensive over here, they're like £8, who would have thought that Luxembourg would be cheaper?? I'm hoping to do a bit of shopping in America so will scout them out there ;) xxx

    1. Who would have thought Luxembourg would have even heard of them? haha I think in America it works out to £5 ($8) or something, so that's probably best! It's so annoying that they're so expensive here. But you should look at the website and pick which colours you want, that always helps me :) xxx
