Essie released Expressie a new line of nail polishes late last year, however they didn’t exactly land on my radar until social distancing took place and professional manicures were no longer an option.
This nail polish is advertised as quick drying, requiring no base coat or top coat, and is an 8-free vegan formula (which means it doesn’t include all of the bad chemicals found in a lot of polishes). The nail polish also features a new style of brush that is both wide and angled, and makes messing up nearly impossible. At first the new brush threw me, but I quickly realized it is genius and I wish every nail polish would make the switch.
I personally like to top mine with a top coat, even though it is not required. I have done two at home mani’s in different colors using this technique, and both times I was able to go a full week without any chipping. You don’t have to be a professional to have beautiful nails, and at only $9.00 a bottle, you can experiment with different colors. I also really like some of the oranges and blues in this collection, its a quick and easy way to change things up and add some color to your life!
