Essence Candy Crush

This is okay to use and okay to apply. The formula is quite thick and prone to dragging, so be careful when painting the nails. I found thinner coats were better. Drying time is okay - about 4 minutes a coat. It's a pretty pink polish with a nice matte finish. Mr Economy (who also doubles as Mr Posh!) isn't that fond of matte polishes. Lasted well.

  2. I'm not crazy about matte polishes either, but it's a nice colour, and it's really easy to make it shine with a layer of topcoat! :D

  10. I like the colour! I do prefer matte polishes with some kind of shimmer or texture in them though, but this polish felt nice and summery to me :)

  12. cute color! i like how it looks kind of like a satin matte rather than a completely flat matte... although that could just be the lighting?
