NOTD | Essie Strut Your StuffFriday, January 22, 2016
It's time to bring back a series I've long been neglecting - the classic NOTD (aka. Nail Of The Day). I used to do these so often on CM (have a read of them here), and I want to revive it and post more of what I'm wearing on my nails. I am constantly changing my nail polish, basically every week I'll have something different on. Hopefully doing this style post again, I'll reach for shades I've not used yet or haven't used in a while. So here's the first NOTD of 2016.
Kicking it off I have the amazing Essie shade in Strut Your Stuff. I recently picked this up from Love My Makeup in Newmarket and I think it was around the $8.00 mark - a bargain for Essie! This cobalt aqua shade is from the 2014 Summer Collection and I can't stop staring at my nails. I found this needed two coats, the first coat was a little streaky and dried to a matte finish, which is quite typical of these really vibrant neon shades. After another coat it was totally opaque and with a lashing of the Essie Gel Setter Top Coat, it left a gorgeous glossy and professional looking finish. So far I've had it on for 4 days and I've got no chipping at all!
What do you think of this Essie shade? Do you own it, or something similar in your collection?
