I’ve only recently gotten into Essie nail polishes. I’ve known the brand for a long time but I never purchased one because of the price. They’re not the cheapest out there and I tend to gravitate towards inexpensive polishes because I never finish them and they dry out anyway.
However, I couldn’t resist picking up this Essie nail polish in e-nuf is e-nuf. This nail polish is so bright which is perfect for the upcoming summer months.
I bought the Essie nail polish from a makeup sale a while back. The price was significantly less than what you’d pay for if you buy them in Farmers. I can’t exactly remember how much but they may be around $8 in the sale.
e-nuf is e-nuf is this bright pinky coral shade. Essie’s website describes this as a subdued creamy coral. It is more of on the red side though and appears orangey-red.
I love how bright and pretty it is on the nails. It is pretty spot on from the bottle too.
I love this colour so much, I had it on for more than two weeks as I reapplied it straight away after it chipped the first time.
I also added an accent nail with some glitter polish on top.
If you’re wondering about my jewellery, I have my Karen Walker rings in the daisy, heart and cat. My ring in the middle is from Equip.
The nail polish I used for the accent nail is L.A. Girl Splatter in GNL356 Spatter. This polish has white and blue speckles which is really nice.
Because of this e-nuf is e-nuf nail polish, I bought more Essie nail polishes to try out. The brand has so many bright shades so I was spoilt for choice.
This polish has also appeared on my Instagram:
As for the lasting power, Essie nail polishes aren’t the best. The consistency of the polish is thin and runny but I found it easy to dry. I usually add a top coat and I also have been using the OPI Chip Skip I got from NZ Fashion Week goodie bags. This helped the polish last longer but without a top coat or the Chip Skip, my nails chipped within the second day which was disappointing.
It’s definitely not as long-wearing as the Revlon Colorstay nail polish that I’ve tried but it’s not bad that I’m put off from buying Essie polishes again. I love their colour selection and the brush is pretty good too.
Overall, I will be using this nail polish a lot this summer as it’s currently one of the top bright polishes in my collection.
If you love Essie, tell me what your favourite shade is that I need to have. I only have four Essie polishes at the moment but I want to try more.

Love the nails & rings!
I love Essie, I have quite a few of them. I bought some online from sellers in the US on ebay, and others are from Farmers sales. Watermelon is one of my absolute favourites

Postie+ has them too which is cheaper. I think I’ve seen Watermelon and really like it too.
Shame about the chipping. It’s a stunning shade nevertheless. Even I tend to buy OPI and Essie from makeup sales. Can’t justify buying them at full price.

Yeah I don’t know why it just doesn’t last as long on my nails but I love Essie nail polish shades. I actually don’t have any OPI. I can’t make myself buy it for that price. I’m the same as I can’t justify paying that much for nail polish.
