Essie's Chubby cheeks

Hi lacquered ladies,

Are you all having a nice Saturday? Mine has been pretty busy; I spent most of my time food shopping, polish hunting and translating a coptic text dated back to the 5th century AD. This text was a bummer but I made it! Hurray!

I still have OPI's gorgeous My Private Jet on and didn't want to remove it so I decided to post a couple of pictures of a beautiful polish I had on the other day: Essie's Chubby Cheeks.

I not only love the color of this polish but it's name as well. Chubby cheeks used to be my nickname as a kid, at least the one my parents used to call me; but I'm sure many of you bore that nickname too!

Colorwise, Chubby Cheeks is a vibrant coral whose shade was hard to capture on camera as is the case with similar colors. It does lean more towards red than orange or pink though.

For full opacity I applied 2 rather thick coats as the formula wasn't as opaque as expected. Nevertheless, there were no application issues and this polish glided on easily without any streaks or bubbles.

I then topped this beauty with Essie's Good To Go topcoat.

Thanks for reading :)
