Essie's Sand Tropez

Hello there!

I've heard a lot about the polish I'm showing you today and wasn't sure I liked it in swatches seen on internet, but I finally picked it up and am so glad I did.

I present you: Sand Tropez.

What a silly name. For having been to St Tropez many times, I can assure you the sand's color over there is by far very different than what Essie supposes... It may look like sand on some of the Caribbean beaches, I'm thinking Barbuda, Antigua of Petit St Vincent, but in no means are the sandy beaches of France this color!

Anyway, I really like this polish and will wear it again soon.

Have you tried it?

Thanks for reading!

  1. I have this color too, and absolutely love it! It's a nice neutral shade that I could wear whenever. :)

  2. wowwow so pretty, I like it too!! how many coats did you have ?

  3. I have this too and like you, I wasn't sure I'd be into it but I actually really like it. It looks so pretty on you! Funny that it apparently looks nothing like St Tropez.

  4. I bought this but think I gave it away in a giveaway-too light and happy for me!

  5. I've worn this as a palette cleanser--liked that it only took two coats.

  6. Hi Ladies,
    Sorry it's taken me so long to reply to your comments :(

    @Holly: I agree with you and could wear this polish over and over again.

    @Cotton candy: I think I put 2 coats on, maybe 3 on a couple of nails.

    @Chelsea: Thanks! I don't know who chooses the names at Essie but this one is really wrong for this polish :)

    @Fingers: Too light and happy?! I love your comments, they make me laugh each time :)

    @KarenD: I agree with you, it's a great palette cleanser; just what I needed when I wore it.

    @Samantha: Isn't it? Have you tried it?

  7. I love this shade of white! Your manicures are so neat, how do you do them? :D
