Essie Nail Polish - Buy me a Cameo

Hey Everyone,

I am back with a new post again.. I usually review Indian brands, but this time the product under review is  the most popular "phoren" brand  Essie... Whenever I watched you tube videos about home manicure, nail arts etc, I used to wonder when these brands would be available here!! Thanks to online shopping, that most of the sites have international brands from OPI, China Glaze, Essie and even Zoya are accessible.. UT has all 4 of them now :) Just that are a little expensive for a nail polish (500 INR for one nail polish, I can get 5 Colorbar/Revlon/ Maybelline).. But I always wanted to have atleast one from these brands.. So you can expect to see reviews of international brands soon :)

Talking about Essie, it costs around 450 INR at Urban Touch and 475 INR at 365gorgeous.com. But I got mine at a blog sale for 200 INR


The Shade under review is Essie's "Buy me a Cameo"

Buy me a cameo

Buy me a cameo is beautiful shade suitable for daily office wear.. You can go for this if you don't want any drama on your nails and prefer neatly manicured nails, may be for an interview or so..  I am sure this will suit all skin tones :)


It looks a little pink here, but it has brown undertones.. Gawwddd!! I am unable to explain the color.. I think I can sum it up to light brown color with bronze touch which has pearly finish.. Please correct me if I am wrong also comment if you know how to explain the shade :)

A few more pics should explain..



I love the nail polish mainly for the texture and finish.. There are few things that I unlike.. Read on..

I expected a flat brush, what I got was a thin normal brush.. The application goes a little streaky which is kinda okay for pearly and shimmery nail polishes, but would ruin the mani for a creamy finish nail paint!!!

Overall, I am very happy with the product as such and will add may 1 or 2 Essies to my collection.. I am not very sure about lasting power , I am not gonna keep them for a long time and I am expecting my UT parcel anytime.. I am sooo excited to stamp my nails :)

One other pic :



Once again guys, thanks for your comments and support.. It really means a lot to me and encourages to do at-least 1 blog post per day...

Please do let you know your comments and feedback.. Also let me know if you'd like me to swatch any shade for you.. Will be more than happy to do that.

Have fun and keep smiling..

Cheers,

Amrin
