Fast Friday mani, holaaaaa. Mashmallow by Essie is a sheer cloudy white polish with a jelly-like depth of colour. I think this is one of those nail polishes that looks quite nice in real life, but doesn’t stand up to this kind of close-up macro photography all that well. I know it was sheer when I was wearing it, but it didn’t look quite this uneven to my mere mortal eye. I’m rocking three coats and you can still see the white of my nail, so that should give you a clear idea of what kind of level of sheer we’re working with here.
Application was smooth as butter. The polish didn’t grab or drag, and if I was a bit more steady-handed I’m sure it’d look a lot more even. It’s not perfect, but as far as a white-but-not-stark-white nail polish goes, this is fine by me.
Essie nail polishes are AU$18.95 for 15ml, available from Myer and Adore Beauty. Happy lacquering!
