It’s Worth the Money
Instead of just grabbing a cheap color, I bought some by Essie. I’ve read some good stuff on Pinterest about this brand and wanted to test it out on pools and beach sand to see if it really is worth the money.
At any rate, the Essie ‘Smokin’ Hot’ (dark grey) has really stood up to the elements here, even without a topcoat. It’s still shiny and hasn’t chipped. I really like it, but will probably only buy classic colors. Buying crazy/bright colors will still be reserved for Wet n’ Wild.
