I got this compliment set of three Essie nail polishes long time ago for buying some other Essie colours.
Stickers on the box say “not for sale” and “gift”, and the bottles differ from the regular Essie bottles: there’s less polish in them. Luckily brushes are the same, wide and easy-to-use.
Three colours in the Essie set are: Naughty Nautical (a green mint), Full Steam Ahead (a pastel lilac), and Sunday Funday (a soft coral). All 3 of them have some silver shimmer added that is almost invisible in daylight. The quality of the polishes is very good, they didn’t thickened, and the application was smooth and easy.
The pics show 3 Essie colours applied in 3 thin coats, without base/top coats. Just the polishes by themselves, with no additional gloss. If you apply them a bit thicker you might get away with just 2 coats.
I applied the polishes in no particular order and got an effortless and fun manicure. The trio of Summer 2013 polishes works fine for Spring 2016 :) I think my favourite here is Naughty Nautical: the cool mint green is great for the season. The other two colours are quite ordinary looking, but lovely never the less.
Thank you for reading! Which one of the colours do you like better? :)
