There was a sale at Myers where Essie was buy 2 for $24.50. I bought the shades 'Jazz' (neutral) and 'Bahama Mama' (purple).
I didn't realise what all the fuss was about with Essie until I tried it myself. These nailpolishes are hands down amazing! Their application is amazing, goes on very smoothly with a nice consistency ( I did have to put a couple of coats for the colour to show).
The nailpolishes are naturally quite glossy, so no need for a top coat and they DON'T CHIP! That's amazing or what! I couldnt believe it, you'll see below where I am wearing the purple shade, its been a week and 0 chips!
I feel like going and buying all of the shades because theyre so pretty but unfortunately they are quite pricey :(.
I thought I had bought the same purple shade when I got home, but when compared the Essie purple is much deeper like a plum and at times looks red whereas the Zoya 'Demi' has a pinky tint to it and when applied is slightly on the 'grey' side.
Would I repurchase these polishes? YES I would, if I was a millionaire I would buy all the shades :)
Keep Smiling :)
