Essie "Pink Works"
Hi guys and happy June! This week I decided to try out a pretty pink nail polish by Essie named "Pink Works." "Pink Works" is from Essie's 2013 Breast Cancer Awareness Mini-Collection, which I purchased at Kohl's. Every once in a while Kohl's puts Essie nail polish and sale and if you can find a 20 or 30% off coupon then you can get Essie polishes for a great price!
Essie's "Pink Works" is a bright baby pink (if that makes any sense at all!) Unlike most baby pink polishes that are very pale "Pink Works" seems brighter and more vibrant, but I still would not consider it s hot pink. This nail polish also has a secret shimmer, which is almost invisible in the bottle but looks lovely on the nail. Formula wise "Pink Works" is somewhat watery and it made it difficult to put on in even coats. And after two coats of polish there were very noticeable streak marks on all of my nails. As for chipping it started after only a few hours, and it only got worse from there. In the end Essie's "Pink Works" lasted about one day before it looked so chipped it had to be removed.
Overall I am very disappointed in Essie's "Pink Works." The formula was difficult to control, it was very streaky and it chipped after only a couple hours. However the color is pretty and I like that Essie does a Breast Cancer Awareness Mini-Collection each year. I may wear this nail polish again, but probably not any time soon.
Thanks for reading my blog! :)
