Essie released a new collection and formula of nail polish, so I had to try it out! Essie is my favorite nail polish to buy, they always have the best colors. I also love how well it stays on and the brush applicator.
The new formula is called ExprESSIE. Clever. It is supposed to be a quick-drying nail color that dries nails in one minute flat.
I chose this gorgeous pinky-purple color, called In The Time Zone, but there are 40 other colors to choose from!
The packaging is different, the bottle is longer lengthwise than the regular Essie bottles, and the wand is slightly bent with the same brush applicator. I love the brush applicator because it is thick, and only requires one or two swipes to coat the nail.
I swiped my nails with acetone (crucial to keeping polish on longer) and applied two coats of the polish. It went on nice and smoothly, and would have been completely opaque with three coats, but I stopped at two. It actually DID dry in one minute. By the time I started the second coat, the first coat was dry. It dries a lot faster than the regular Essie formula. Since I was trying this out for the first time, I didn’t apply a top coat, I just wanted to see how this would wear.
I really like this polish, and think that if you need a quick drying nail color, this is for you!
Have you tried this? Do you like Essie polishes?
