The Nail File #9: Essie Topless & Barefoot

Thursday, 7 March 2013

The other week I posted my Essie Collection and in a bid to restrain myself from buying any more polishes (although seriously lusting after Chanel’s Western Lights…) I thought I’d go through my stash and dusted off Essie Topless & Barefoot.

This reminds me of Essie St. Tropez, nude but not too beige with a bit more pink.  A chic manicure look without any fear of mannequin hands.  As the number of varnishes in my drawer with little white lids will attest to, I’m a huge Essie fan but this one is not part of the diffusion line so comes with the thin brush which makes application a little more tricky.  Also, I find that I need to lacquer on 2-3 coats to get perfect opaqueness.  

Application issues aside, I love the shade and this lasts several days with a base and topcoat before there is any tip wear.  You can buy this from Beauty Bay for the random prices of €9.42 or £7.91.  

The Essie obsession continues…
