Review: Essie Nail Polish in Madison Ave-Hue


I bought my first Essie Nail Polish a few months ago during a shopping trip. I was after a relatively inexpensive pastel shade but then this gorgeous purple-pink colour caught my eye as I walked past the Essie stand. This was Madison Ave-Hue..... and it was the last bottle left in that shade. So I bought it. 

I love this colour - it's pink enough to look girly but it has a slight purple tint to it to avoid looking Barbie-pink. The Essie website describes this shade as a "chic upper east side pink"

I have to say, I can totally see why this is such a popular nail polish brand. The formula applies really smoothly and the brush is a decent shape & size to get smooth coverage. In the image above, I've only used one coat of polish - I think that's all you need with this one. The glossiness gives a really professional finish. Providing that you have a steady hand, you should get yourself an Essie nail polish instead of spending money getting your nails done by a manicurist.

 You can purchase your bottle of Essie Madison Ave-Hue from Debenhams for £8.
