Essie 在台灣好像比較少看到, 在國外它跟OPI 差不多是屬於指甲沙龍常看到的專業牌子, 色系沒OPI那麼鮮艷, 淺色系蠻多的, 要不就是鮮紅豔橘亮粉紅, 偶爾有些深色系的, (OPI 可能有些特殊一點的顏色, 如叢林綠,泥漿色等等). 在國外的價錢跟OPI差不多, 可能便宜一點點.
這色是'Tennis Corset', 透亮象牙白帶著均勻的金色碎亮粉(沒到亮片那麼大), 比較透一點的安全色, 不過最大的問題是他的金色亮粉會有時讓指甲看起來有點黃~ 皮膚偏黃的要注意些.
我的指甲上擦三層, 外加Seche Vite的快乾top coat.
First mani review will go to Essie Tennis corset- I believe this was a 2006/2007 release. It's a beautiful sheer to medium-sheer ivory based polish with tiny flecks of gold sparkles (small shimmers, not glitters, the shimmers also reflect pink and a pale golden green at different angles).
I need to apologise to this polish! I've previously worn it multiple times in two coats, (how I normally do 99% of my manis), and never liked it much- it turned out to be too sheer and the golden sparkles makes my nails seemed yellow. I've also tried layering it as a coat on other polishes, still didn't like it- one coat doesn't give enough shimmers to the underlying base color.
Then finally, last night I did a 3 coat manicure since I was sitting in front of my laptop waiting for some downloads to finish and had plenty of time to kill. Wow it was exactly what I wanted, an clean, ivory tip with subtle elegant gold sparkles. The 3 coats give enough opacity to the ivory base to make the gold shimmers not become neutral. Makes my fingers look lean and very clean, polished, great for the office!
Indoor, flash, macro, 3 coats, no base coat, topcoat was Seche vite.
