Review | Essie A Crewed Interest

Hi lovelies!

Sorry for my quietness recently, I have been so busy getting ready for moving to University on Saturday and seeing some friends for the last time in a while, scary stuff! The other night I discovered by browsing on Fragrance Direct that they were selling Essie polishes for £1.99 each. I have never tried an Essie polish before and was not going to spend over £6 to buy them, so I may have accidently purchased 10 bottles, I am a sucker for a hyped up product.


 Some of the polishes from Fragrance Direct website have the thinner brush and some have the thicker brush. I do not know much about Essie but from what I have heard the range sold in UK drugstores is a diffusion line, so some of the polishes I have bought come from that, which is why there is a difference in the brush size. I love the bottles, they look so cute lined up together.


This brush is thick and easy to cover the whole nail in two strokes. I found the formula to be slightly streaky and not as opaque as I wanted, but after applying three coats and a top coat it was fine. A Crewed Interest is a gorgeous creamy peach colour, perfect for the last few days of sunshine we may have. It is similar to Barry M Peach Melba, which is a favourite of mine!


It lasted pretty well considering I have been at work and packing up my room. It started to chip after the third day, but that is usually the time I want to change the colour anyway. I love the creamy colour and shiny finish. It is elegant and flattering even on my pale skin tone. I was impressed with the wear, especially considering I had three coats on, however it was fairly streaky and I would have been disappointed if I had paid full price for it.

Have you tried any of the Essie range?

  5. the colour is lovely, but i think i'd be a bit disappointed with the application too - always imagined essie to be really good quality so might have to try one for myself and see what i think - what a shame for a nice colour!

  6. I picked up 4 colours from fragrance direct, I got this one but haven't used it yet. The one I used was called Navigate Her and it was a really nice colour and only needed 2 coats.
