Essie's Smooth Sailing (#756)


For my NOTD I used Essie's Smooth Sailing, a periwinkle blue with light silver, blue and magenta micro shimmer.
The silver shimmer is the most obvious but isn't very visible on the photos, whereas the electric blue and magenta shimmers are barely noticeable as they are so fine. You need to look really close in order to see them, so get your magnifying glasses out!

Shimmers apart, this color is very similar to China Glaze's Secrect Peri-wink-Le as you can judge by the photo.

The formula was a bit streaky and left some bald patches for the first 2 layers so I applied a third coat followed by Sèche Vite to even the polish out.

Thanks for reading!

All photos were taken in natural daylight (late PM).
