Essie Polish Swatches - Van D'Go, Pink Lemonade, Marshmallow

Here's part deux of my Essie polishes. I actually don't have a large collection of Essie and I've been eyeing their fall collection and thinking of getting a few. I tend to lean towards shimmers and glitters but definitely want to get more cream finishes.

Van D' Go is a pinkish coral with a cream finish. It looks pretty bright on my nails in real life but I still like it. 2 coats and it looks pretty opaque. I had a bit of uneveness so sometimes the 3rd coat helps.

Pink Lemonade is a shimmery coral. I probably like it a little more than Van D' Go. The formula is easier to apply and the color is not as bright. I did 2 coats on the picture.

I have been pretty pleased with my Essie polishes but Marshmallow has been more of a miss for me. I was hoping it would come out more opaque but instead, it's rather sheer and left a lot of streaking behind, as you can tell from the pictures. I did 3 coats and it still looks sheer and streaky.
I'm still searching for the perfect white polish that doesn't look like I applied white out on my nails. If you have any recommendation, please let me know.


  1. First of all, I love the shape of your nails and they're the perfect length! Second, I love Van d' Go. I don't own it myself but my friend swatched some shades for me to post on my blog and I fell in love with it when I saw it on her :D Thanks for the swatches! I always try to look for swatches of higher end polishes so this is super helpful.

  2. AngelicBetrayal - Thanks. I'm glad you found the swatches helpful. I can't keep my nails too long or they'll break, hehe.

  3. van d go is so pretty<3
    im hesitant to try essie though.

  4. Try Essie Waltz, it's really pretty bright colour. I made swatches on my blog;)|

    1. Thanks for the suggestion. I'll check it out :)
