Review: Essie Nail Polish in Carry On


A few days before Christmas I was browsing the Fragrance Direct website where they have a few Essie Nail Polishes for £1.99. I ummed and ahhed over them and eventually bought two, one being Essie's Nail Polish in Carry On.

Carry On is a deep, dark, plum which looks almost black in some lights whereas when photographed using flash it looks more of a browny burgundy. It's a gorgeous colour and perhaps one of my faves. I always want to wear dark colours on my nails but get fed up with black so this is a great alternative.

Carry On was really easy to apply and as it's fairly opaque I only needed to use two coats. It's also incredibly shiny. I've never had a nail varnish as shiny as this one before - I could practically see my reflection in my nails. I found that this nail varnish lasted quite a long time without chipping. I went nearly a week without any chipping at all - major brownie points from me :-)
