NOTD: Essence Forget-Me-Not

I'm a big fan of Essence nail polish. I'm not into their other products at all but their nail polishes are one of the best I've tried so far. They're long-lasting, fast drying, come in fun colours and they're cheap!

I've had Forget Me Not from the Blossom Etc collection sitting in my drawer for quite sometime. It has shimmer in the bottle but when applied, it looks creme. The application was very easy - no streaks, two coats and I finished it with Essie Good To Go top coat.

I was wearing this colour for 3 days without chipping. I was really impressed. I only changed my nails colours today because of a business meeting. One of my male colleagues jokingly asking me if I was cold yesterday. Cold? It's freaking 28°C outside.'Oh, your nails are BLUE. I thought you're cold...'

I just picked up some more colours from Essence latest collection 50's Girls Reloaded yesterday. Will post the swatches soon :)


  1. Well, men just do not get it! :) Wonderful colour, really suits you.

  3. Yarisse: Indeed. :D My husband said the colour is blue too. Haha.

  4. speaking of which, i should probably get to painting my nails soon.. it's starting to look rather boring. :P i love this color on you! definitely not "cold" looking! haha!
