Nail of the Day: Essie Fiji

Ladies, I welcome you to NOTD: Nail of the Day! Waking up today I was craving pastels on my fingers, so that’s what we went for.

Essie’s Fiji is a light pink, and even though it seems to be quite transparent after the first coat, I’ll encourage you to keep going, as it takes a couple more to be fully opaque.

It came with one of those itsy-bitsy brushes that takes ages to apply; well for me at least, but I’m the worst at applying nail polish.

I’ll advice you to go with two or three thin layers rather than one thick layer. With three layers you end up with a beautiful opaque light pink color on your nails!

  • Love that nail colour!! I’ll definitely have to try!! Xx

    • It’s indeed lovely! It’s a hassle to apply, but I find that it last a good while before chipping on me if I do it properly. 🙂 X

  • I adore this shade, especially when I want to boost the look of my tan in summer. But, the notoriously streaky formula does make it a chore to apply!
