NOTD | Essie ' Fiji'

Due to the fact that I can't wear nail varnish to work, I've taken advantage of my holiday and applied something quick and easy to apply. I picked a shade that would compliment my tanned skin, which meant that it's perfect for the Summer!

I'm a massive fan of Essie, at £7.99 a pop though, it does make grit my teeth a little, but I am just in love with their vast collection and the brush itself. 'Fiji' appears in the bottle to come out as a very light pink, however, on my nails it comes out as a white, with slight pink undertones. I feel that this colour really emphasises and highlights my tan, which is perfect! I also used the Maybelline strong lasting nail varnish as a undercoat and top coat; firstly to protect my nails and secondly to make the varnish stay on longer. 

It dries quite quickly, so I i'm not stuck in a position for too long, I had to apply 2 coats which is pretty standard and I'm fine with that. But, I'm sure plenty of people have this shade and I can see why!

Do you own 'fiji'? Do you like Essie?
