Essie "Madison Ave-Hue"
Hi everyone! It is still October so I am still wearing pink nail polish in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month! :) This week I decided to wear Essie's "Madison Ave-Hue" which is a hot pink nail polish with a silvery shimmer! (Which you can kind of see in the picture.)
"Madison Ave-Hue" is a blue based hot pink, which is my favorite kind of hot pink nail polish! Formula wise "Madison Ave-Hue" is a bit watery and because Essie has a pretty small brush I find it very difficult to control the nail polish. Which means it goes all over and I end up spending 20 minutes trying to get it off my skin and I don't enjoy that. As for chipping "Madison Ave-Hue" lasted for about three days. After that it chipped off the end of my nails and many of my nails had scratch marks on them. The scratch marks made my nails look rough and not shiny. As for removing "Madison Ave-Hue" I was worried that it was going to be hard because of all the glitter. But I was surprised and after about fifteen minutes all of the nail polish was off and it did not stain my nails!
Overall Essie's "Madison Ave-Hue" is pretty good. The color is fantastic and reminds me of Barbie pink (I was a 90's child so Barbies were my thing!) and I like the surprise silver glitter. But the formula was not very nice and it was a bit difficult to handle, however the brush did not help. I will wear "Madison Ave-Hue" again and maybe with a little practice I can get better at using Essie's tiny brushes.
Thanks for reading my blog! :)
