Essie Nail Polish: Boots/Superdrug (£7.99)

Essie is an American salon nail polish brand that honestly I didn't really know much about. I'd seen it on American nail blogs, and I think you could buy it at Libertys in London but other than that I didn't know much! Thanks to recent rumblings in the blogasphere, I heard you could buy the recently launched Essie diffusion line in Londons's Marble Arch Superdrug "concept" store. The full collection is to be launched in larger Boots and Superdrugs towards the end of April. My small local Boots (Boots Balham) doesn't currently have them, but when I visited home the Hereford Boots did have about 30 of the most popular shades on sale. I can't seem to find any information about Essie UK Stockists after a quick google but they should be starting to become more available from now on.

The Essie nail polish diffusion line has a whopping 70 different shades to choose from. Essie has taken some of their best selling colours and reformulated them for quicker at home application. They have also changed the brush shape so it's slightly wider which is said makes application much speedier and completely effortless.

Priced at £7.99 they are pricey than your average drugstore polish, Personally I think between £5-£8 for a decent nail polish is a perfectly acceptable price. I'd rather pay extra for a one or two coat quick dry polish than £3 for a three coater and terrible drying time! I tend to judge most nail polishes based on Models Own polishes as they are the ones I tend to use the most. I haven't tried these just yet so I can't confirm if they are worth it or not, but I shall update you with some proper swatches and a full review as soon as I try them!
Essie will be rolling out in the UK from the end of April in larger Boots and Superdrug stores, priced at £7.99 a bottle

  23. I went to the Boots in london colney and did a little dance of surprised joy when I saw them there. I've loved Essie for a long time but they were always so hard to get hold of. Needless to say I had a good splurge along with a backup of my beloved mint candy apple

  27. I'm curious to see what you think of them. I find them to be rather hit-or-miss as far as the shades go: Some shades only need a coat or two, and others are still streaky after three. It isn't even an issue of opacity — the consistency of the polish varies greatly from bottle to bottle, at least for me here in the U.S.

  33. I'm shopping tomorrow so need to check if any of my local Boots or Superdrug have them in yet!

  34. I was really happy when I heard that they were coming to Boots and Superdrug as it meant they'd become more available, an I'm an Essie polish devotee, but went back to sleep again when I found out they were a different formula. I love Essie polishes as they are a fantastic formular that are great to apply, durable and long lasting. I think it is a mistake to water them down for the mass market.

  35. I've only got one Essie polish, but I find the consistency really think and it takes quite a few coats to make it opaque, I don't know if it's just that colour though. I can't wait to find out what you think of these though because they're such lovely shades!

  40. I own one mini Essie polish after receiving it in a beauty box and just tried it the other day, really liking it! I did find the scent quite strong though which can be quite off putting and usually it wouldn't bother me that much! I love the shade and the staying power though!
