Essie Nail Polish in Lapiz of Luxury


What's that? Colour? On my nails?! Regardless of the season, I've been a strictly nude, black or white nails kinda girl in the last year, but there's something about this beautiful polish from Essie that's swayed me away from my usual neutral compulsion.

I haven't featured Essie on the blog in a long, long time and I'm not really sure why, as it's such an incredible brand that delivers long lasting nail colours in a whopping array of choices. Lapiz of Luxury (formerly Lapis of Luxury, but don't ask why the Z's a better option because I have no idea) is a bright and cheery periwinkle blue. Like all other Essie polishes it'll cost you £7.99, so it's neither cheap nor close to Chanel's consumer thievery.

I bought this little bottle on my latest trip to America but it seems they're slow on the uptake and haven't introduced the incredible 'one sweep' brushes you can find over here yet, despite Essie being an American brand. This meant application took slightly longer for me, but if you pick up a bottle from Boots then you shouldn't have a problem. The first coat is too sheer for you to be done with it, but it dries extremely quickly. Even after two coats some parts of the nail are visible so I like to apply three, which may sound daunting but each coat dries so fast that it doesn't take longer to apply than any other nail polish. It lasts for an age on the nail without chipping, even without a base coat or top coat, and it adds a nice pop of colour to an otherwise monochromatic look (that I always tend to favour).

What do ya think of Lapiz of Luxury?
