Essie's 'Fiji'


I have heard so much hype about Essie's 'Fiji' and as a nail polish lover, I had to give it a try myself. I picked it up the other week whilst in Boots and I am SO glad I did! It is the most perfect baby pink colour and looks amazing against a tan which makes it perfect for summer . It can definitely be worn from day to night, I had been wearing Fiji in the day and was heading on a girls night out so added OPI Crown Me Already as an accent nail which is a combo I now adore. Essie are such great quality polishes, and I love the formula. Fiji dries opaque in two coats, which I didn't think it would when looking in the bottle as it looks quite sheer. I have been wearing this on my nails for a few days now and with the help of my Sally Hansen top coat, it is still looking as perfect as it did on day one. The only criticism I have is that the brush is slightly too big for my little finger nail, but that is me being very picky!

I absolutely love this colour and it definitely lives up to all the hype! Have you tried Fiji? What did you think? Or do you have another favourite Essie polish?

  4. I was impressed with the quality of Essie polishes too. Like you I thought it would take a few coats to become opaque but it only took two!

  8. These are sooo pretty. I want it so it can remind me of my holiday in Fiji...*SIGH*. I wish I could afford it, it's pretty pricey! The accent nail is adorable.

  9. Beautiful manicure, very stylish and cute ! I like Essie colors but when it comes to applying them I am not as good as when I am using OPI ! This color is very pretty and looks great on your beautiful hands.

  10. This is so bizarre. . . I just went out yesterday with the object of buying "Fiji," but my store was sold out of the colour! Another Essie polish that I own and love is "Angora Cardi." Like you, I like to glitz up my matte polishes sometimes so I add a coat of OPI's "Cozu-melted in the Sun" over "Angora Cardi."
    I just found and followed your blog, feel free to check mine out as well!
