Product of the Week for this week is Essie Navigate Her nail polish! I absolutely adore this color. It’s bright, it’s light, it’s pastel and it’s very Spring! I bought this at Trade Secret in Canada last year for about CAD$ 8.99. This color was from the Spring Collection 2012. I’d say that this nail polish is light green with a yellow undertone.
I applied two coats of the nail polish to achieve an opaque finish. The first layer might get streaky, so definitely apply 2-3 coats for a beautiful opaque finish. The consistency of the nail polish is quite runny compared to OPI. I find that most of Essie nail polishes are quite runny, anyways.
Regarding the longevity of the nail polish really depends on where you are and how much work do you do with your hands. When I was in Canada and it’s cold, and I’ve to apply a lot of hand lotions, do the dishes, showered with really hot water etc, the nail polishes usually lasted for about 3-4 days. In Indonesia, since it’s warm, showered with cold water, not much lotion etc, the nail polishes lasted longer usually for about a week with minimal chipping.
