Essie Fiji

After years of being a hardcore OPI fan, I have finally found my new nail varnish love - Essie. These used to be quite hard to find where I live (Holland) so imagine my joy when they started selling them in local chemists/drugstores here! Reasonably(ish) priced, gorgeous colours and they dry really quickly to boot.

After lusting after Essie Ballet Slipper for what seemed like an eternity (umm-ing and aah-ing over whether I could justify the price for a 'barely there'/nude nail varnish, when I spotted Fiji next to it. Whipping out my phone to do a quick Makeupalley check (MUA fiend here), I not only noticed the ratings for Fiji were slightly higher than those of Ballet Slippers, but that the swatches were amazing, the colour described as 'the perfect pale pink' and 'makes you look tanned'' (definitely a bonus in my book!)

When I applied it, it was love at first sight. Here is a swatch on my nails:

I love this colour, but knowing me I will probably purchase Ballet Slippers as well some time in the near future. I love me some Essie :)

What's your favourite Essie colour? Any I should definitely check out?
