      I have always used OPI, but fell in love with Essie color "cailifornia coral". Polish went on smooth and has kept glossy shine for over a week now. I will buy Essie in the future.

            Every time I try a new Essie color I fall in love! I've used this so many times in the nail salons that I decided to buy it myself. Fiji is such a classy pink color. I love how it looks on my toes!

                  This is the only nail polish that doesn't take forever to dry and I only need two coats and dries beautifully. My favorites are cabana and California coral. The only thing is the price but its worth it. I love the colors!

                    I saw a fashion blogger rave about this color and I had to have it! I have been looking for a blue nail polish for Spring that isn't too crazy for work. I am in love. It says it is sold out online but I was lucky enough to find it at my local Ulta store. A MUST HAVE!
