Speckled Egg Nails

Paul & Joe A Midsummer's Night Polish in Faerie Queen
L - R Essie Polishes : Lapiz of Luxury, Lovie Dovie, Mint Candy Apple
Wanted to show you the nail polishes I got yesterday :) I've wanted to try out Essie polishes for ages, but didn't really know where to get any! I normally pick up my nail polish from TK Maxx (so much cheaper!), but hadn't seen any Essie in my local one before. Anywaaaay, they've just been stocked in Boots & Superdrug, for £7.99 each. I didn't think that sounded too bad, when the RRP of a lot of my other polishes is about £11. Plus, they were on offer 3 for 2, so only cost £5.33 each anyway!

The other polish I picked up on a whim from ASOS, was just browsing the new in beauty section & saw this lovely Paul & Joe flakie polish. It wasn't cheap, (£10.50), but the bottle design & nail polish itself was so pretty I couldn't resist! I think it makes my nails look like (sparkly) speckled eggs! Sorry my pic isn't brilliant, it was pretty hard to get a decent one.

As for performance, I've only been wearing them a few hours, so I can't comment on lasting power yet, but the Essie brushes are probably my favourite out of all the brands I own, I could do a nail with pretty much 1 swipe! Lovely & wide, with a curved edge, instead of a flat one, so much easier to apply. Also, no mess! Normally I do end up with at least one blob of polish ending up on my skin, but I didn't have to do any cleanup with these. Plus the colours are lovely, Lovie Dovie is the perfect Barbie pink. Would definitely buy more!

The Paul & Joe one is pretty gloopy, but I suppose it has to be to suspend the glitter flakes (I've tried mixing my own glitter polishes before & the glitter always sinks to the bottom!). It is easy to apply though, although you have to kind of dab it on if you want the flakes in specific places. You'd need another coat for fuller coverage, but I definitely love it & not owning any flakie polishes, it makes a nice addition to my collection!
