Essie Using My Maiden Name review

Too many obsessions this month I tell you! Here’s yet another review of an Essie polish I have been loving in April. 

Using My Maiden Name is not a 2015 collection polish but is a part of a previous year’s bridal collection. It is described as a pretty blue hydrangea shade which also has a bit of iridescence to it.

As I’ve said before, application is pretty simple and straightforward. Two coats does the trick to reach full opacity. The thin brush applicator makes it easy to apply well on the corners of the nails.

I think personally this is a shade one could wear every spring and even summer regardless of when it was released because it is a fun yet pretty colour on the nails. You need to necessarily wear it while you walk down the aisle but even for a casual day to day occasion.

OPI Samoan Island

Yes, I’ve kind of gone bonkers over OPI nail polish this month.  This is my third review of yet another nail polish by the brand and I have to say, I’m loving it.

What I have on my nails in the above picture is the colour Samoan Island.  Again I don’t know from which year or range it is from because I happened to just pick it up at the Sephora counter at a mall in Jeddah. It might seem like nothing but actually is a very beautiful colour. A very neutral taupe is how I’d describe it.

The opacity is not as bad as you’d think on this one. I only had to apply two coats to get the colour right and it left no streaks or bumps whatsoever. I love the way the application brush glides on the nails and give it an even application.

Great job OPI! Xoxo
