Essie French Affair

29 May

French Affair is a beautiful pink polish by Essie that I was quick to purchase after I tried it out at the nail salon. The best way that I can describe this color is to say that it’s a toned down version of Fiji which I love on other people but feel like is too bright and overpowering for my skin tone. It’s got a creme opaque finish that lasts for about four days which I find to be the norm for Essie polishes. Although I know that some people say that French Affair is too streaky, I found that the application was pretty straight forward and had no issues with it. It also dried pretty fast so I was able to move on to other things in a short while. Besides the color, I also love French Affair because I got tons of compliments on it and who doesn’t love those!


P.S. Please excuse my broken fingernail. It broke while I was typing this post.

    Oh I love this color! I’m definitely buying this, I think it’ll be good for all 4 seasons.
    P.S. Your nails still look pretty, didn’t even see the broken one.

    I love pink polish but find the pastel shades too ‘pastely’! I am keen to try out Essie though as its a brand I’ve never used before.

    Ebay here I come!

    Love this color! So many seem to be raving about it that it seems almost wrong not to get it. Hopefully this looks as fantastic on my nails as it does yours!

      Thanks for the compliment. I hope that you enjoy wearing it as much as I do.
