ESSIE NO PRE-NUP

I haven't done NOTD posts for over a week, because I wanted to keep my nails looking natural and give them a well deserved break. This week I want to show you swatches of some nail polishes I added to my collection. Although Essie No Pre-Nup  is a perfect pink shade for a french manicure, to get an opaque finish I needed 4 coats! This bottle came in a set and I knew that I won't be in love with the formula and coverage, but I bought it anyway... :)
It is a beautiful pale pink and the finish is very glossy, but I absolutely hate painting my nails with 4 coats! 2 coats for me is the maximum, anymore than that takes too long to dry and I don't want to spend an hour on painting my nails with one colour.

I really want to try more nail polishes from Essie, but I want the same colour outcome and formula as Mint Candy Apple. Any recommendations?

  1. This is a really cute colour after several coats which can be quite annoying. I've yet to make my Essie purchases seeing that the other day i opted for the Revlon colorstay polishes instead because they were on offer. I really like the finishes of the Essie polishes and i am lusting over the mint candy apple :) Thanks for sharing~x

  2. Takes 4 coats but a lovely colour! I have a nice pink called lovie dovie, which I would class as a bright baby pink. Only needs 2 coats and it is part of diffusion line so can get in boots. xx

  14. I love this colour! I'm always a fan of nudes on my nails, it's harder to see that they're chipped that way. I really love the Essie colour neo whimsical! It's so cute.

  16. Gorgeous colour! I completely know what you mean about not liking to apply too many coats, it can be a right pain!
    I love 'Fishnet Stockings' from Essie, as it is a deep red and needs only 1 or 2 coats! If you like those kind of raspberry red colours, you will love that one!
