Hi everyone! I hope everyone has been enjoying what is left of their Summers! I cannot believe how fast time is flying by! The local schools are getting ready to start back in another week or two and it seems like just yesterday it was May! So after wearing some super bright nail polish the last couple weeks I decided to go a little lighter and wear Essie's "Fiji." A lot of people online talk about Essie's "Fiji" and say it is one of the best Essie nail polishes out so I couldn't wait to try it out!
Essie's "Fiji" is this gorgeous pastel pink/ baby pink nail polish! It is just lovely and I feel very girly when I wear it! Formula wise it was okay. It was a tiny bit watery which meant that my coats of polish were thicker than I would have liked. As well as being thick coats they are very uneven and my nails have a ton of streaking! Also the thick coats of nail polish took quite some time to dry and even though I used a quick drying topcoat I still ended up with smudges on several of my nails. In terms of chipping light pastel colors often seem to show chips easily, so I wasn't surprised that after one day I noticed some tip chips. The chipping did continue to get worse but managed to look okay until the end of day four.
Overall I don't understand all the hype about Essie's "Fiji" because it chipped so quickly and since I couldn't get even coats of polish on my nails so the very pretty pink color didn't come out as much as it should have. That being said "Fiji" is a very pretty color and I am willing to give this nail polish a try again!
Thanks for reading my blog! :)
