NOTD: Essie – Fiji

Essie Fiji3Nail of the Day: I’m just starting to try Essie nail polish and sometimes the formula is a little difficult to work with, but I love their range of colors. Fiji is a creamy, soft blush pink. It’s demure enough to be appropriate for any occasion and is still pretty and feminine. It doesn’t have any shimmer or glitter, which means it’s easy to remove. I find it’s easiest to apply in 3 very thin layers. I tried applying it in two thicker layers and it never dried – I mean never. I used my Orly quick dry drops and let it sit for hours before going to bed and by the following night it still hadn’t hardened. It was barely dry to the touch, which means it had all kinds of dents, dings, and smudges. I actually had to remove it and reapply before I could take pictures for this post. Overall, I like the color and the polish and will definitely continue to use it.
