So I grabbed this new Essie nail polish a couple of weeks ago, but have not had the opportunity to actually wear it. This summer I seem to be really drawn to blue shades, which is not typical of me at all. I am normally a red & pinks kind of girl unless I am getting a french manicure which is rare.
Once Sophia was in bed last night I decided to give myself an at-home manicure, and boy was I in need of one. I was rocking the “A la chip,” look which I refer to as “my nail polish has been chipping for the last week, but I am way to busy to remove it.”
This lovely color by Essie is called “Buttler Please.” I think the color suits the name. My first coat went on matte, like really matte. There is no indication on the bottle that says matte, but nonetheless I loved the color. This would be an awesome fall color, with a silver glitter accent nail. I love an accent nail.. I seem to talk about an accent nail every time I do a Essie review.
The first coat seemed to go on a tad streaky, but once you do a second coat the streaks are no longer apparent. I am somewhat particular about the appearance of an at-home -manicure, if I am going to take the time to do one I want it to look good by the time I am done.
Essie is my favorite brand of nail polish. I have a good relationship with Essie, I have never been dissatisfied with the outcome of a manicure. If you are looking for a summery blue that isn’t baby blue or a aqua colored blue than you will be satisfied with the Essie Butler Please.
In natural lighting it is a darker shade of blue almost a navy blue, but once your are out in the sunlight the blue is much brighter dark blue. I can be a little deceiving at first but look at the color in different lighting. It’s so pretty.
As always, at the end of my manicure I always seal the deal with two coats of the Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat. It is a miracle worker, and it gives it a gel-like finish.
