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?
