Mani Monday #1: Essie 'Fiji' and Models Own 'Disco Heaven'.
I wasn't really fussed when the massive hype around Essie's Fiji nail polish emerged a couple of years ago but curiosity got the better of me and I had to pick it up. There's something about the off white, pink ish shade that screams Summer to me. I don't know whether that's a subconscious think since it's called 'Fiji'?! Probably not.
Rummaging through my nail polish collection last night, I decided to apply fiji for the first time this year. The application itself is quite tedious since it takes about 3/4 coats to become opaque but I'm yet to find a shade similar that doesn't need as many layers. I really like the feel of the wide, great quality brush too which doesn't make the whole nail painting process all that bad!
I opted for a nice little topcoat of Models Own's Disco Heaven just to give it a little extra pizazz and I'm pretty happy I did as I absolutely love the combo together! Models Own is just the Queen of glittery nail polishes, I don't think there's a brand that will ever compare.
What nail polish(es) are you rocking at the moment?!
