NOTD #1: Essie Fear & Desire

For some odd reason I’ve alway loved reading and looking at NOTD’s (which stands for nail of the day if you hadn’t figured that out yet). So I thought, why not do one myself, and have decided to do a weekly NOTD post!:-)

Today I’m wearing Essie’s Fear & Desire. It’s a polish from their limited edition summer collection. When I was in Hamburg I looked in all stores for this color, but it was sold out. Also in the drugstores in Amsterdam (where I work) all polishes were sold out already. A few days ago I went to my local drugstore in the town I live – not worth mentioning because I had to pick up toothpaste and some other boring stuff. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw they had a €2 off deal on all Essie polishes. Ha!

I think the advantages of living in a town is that most people don’t really care for trends, limited editions, and just think it’s not worth splurging for a nail polish? Well, thank god they think like that because I was able to pick up 2 limited edition polishes and I absolutely love them both. One of ’em is of course Fear & Desire, the other is Bikini So Teeny. I’ve been wearing these two non-stop! Fear & Desire on my hands, and Bikini So Teeny on my toes:-)

I really love the applicator brush of these polishes. As you can see it’s kinda broader than the regular polish brushes, so it’s easy to apply the polish on the nails. They are quite opaque as well, 2 coats did the job for me. And the color is just gorgeous. It’s a bright, not neon, orange. Not really red-orange-ish, but more cold toned I’d say? I’m so bad at describing colors ha ha. I have the polish on for a few days already, no chipping, and I just had a cheapish top coat from Catrice on!

What nail polish have you been wearing lately?
