Essie Poppy Razzi Polishes

Hey everyone! I'm a huge nail polish junkie and one of my favourite brands is Essie. When ever I got to Trade Secrets or Shoppers Drug Mart I cannot resist picking up a new Essie polish. So when I saw their Poppy Razzi collection I couldn't resist. I picked up the colours "Lights" and "Camera."

"Lights"

"Camera"


Both "Lights" and "Camera" are fun colours for the summer. Especially now that bright colours are everywhere. I'm usually a fan of Essie polishes but these two were not my favourite. I never have a problem with Essie polishes in regards to application but these two for me were hard to apply. They both were a thicker consistency then usual which made it hard for me to have even strokes. When I wore "Lights" I used two coats to get the colour shown in the bottle. But with "Camera" I had to do three coats to get an even colour. Also these are a creme finish, there isn't any glitter or shimmer in the polish. Though they dry almost matte and I would definitely use a top coat over these. I used Essie's "Good to Go!" top coat which gave the polish a nice shiny look. Another problem I have with these polishes is longevity. Usually I can get 3-4 days of wear with Essie polishes. These two colours chipped on the second day. Not good for someone that doesn't like to change their polish colour very often. 

Overall, these are a pain to apply and don't last long but the colours are beautiful. I will be wearing them again throughout the summer because they're lovely to look at.  

Have you had the same experiences with the polishes from the Poppy Razzi collection? Let me know in the comments! 

Have a great day!
