Hey, how’s it going today? I’ve been having a pretty uneventful time lately which can either be good or bad depending on the person. Since my idea of fun is having a quiet time to lounge, read and read a good book, I’m quite happy right now. Today I have an Essie polish that I had high hopes for when I first saw it at my local beauty supply: Essie Dressed To The Nineties. Let me show you some swatches before I tell you what I thought of it.
Essie Dressed To The Nineties
When I first saw this polish, I was so excited to see all that shimmer in the bottle, but I felt like it largely disappeared on my nails. Essie describes this polish as a “dark purple with blue-green shimmer.” That is a good description, but it was so hard to see the shimmer. I also wanted to point out that the polish applied incredibly patchy as you can see on my nails. I thought the polish was fully opaque but once I looked at my pictures, I could see some pots were not completely even. And this was after I applied 3 coats! I was very disappointed with this. I do think that the shimmer will show up more in sunlight conditions so I will definitely wear it again. I also thought that the formula was very thin and runny. I flooded my cuticles multiple times while trying to swatch this polish so I was losing all my patience. This was basically the only polish I was really interested in from the Fall 2017 collection so I’m a little disappointed by it. Let me know what you think about this polish in the comments below. Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I will talk to you soon.
