I've always wanted to try Essie, but didn't really want to spend out £7.99 on a nail varnish I wasn't sure I liked. I have ummed and ahhhed about placing a Fragrance Direct order for a while, but whenever I came to look, the shades I liked were always sold out. One Saturday morning I was up early (for some unknown reason!) and decided to take a peek, and to my surprise they had the shades I wanted in stock so I placed my order straight away!
I chose the shades Bikini So Teeny, a light lilac/blue colour and Off the Shoulder, a pretty pink shade. Fragrance Direct sell these for £1.99 so they're a bargain price to see if you like them. I guess these are ones that have been discontinued or are no longer part of the current Essie line. The packaging is slightly different to the once in the shops but I think they have only updated this recently.
As soon as I got the parcel home they were being swatched! How pretty do the colours look?
I know i'll be buying more of these, I've got my eye on Candy Apple and Watermelon next!
