There is no need to repeat myself, but I’ll mention it one more time: Essie is the absolute winner when it comes to nudes and pastels. My recent love is the shade Sand Tropez, which is a very flattering creamy beige with a slightly yellow undertone. Needless to say, it’s longevity is as good as with any other Essie nail polish I own – I can easily go for a few days with a chip or two (and nudes make them harder to notice!). Two layers are enough to completely cover the nail and it dries relatively quickly. What’s not to love?
