The Killer Essie Duo


I've only just started to dabble in the world of Essie nail polishes, and I have already found a pairing that is just perfect...

Here we have Essie's 'A Cut Above' and 'Fiji'. I chose A Cut Above on a whim a while back when I ordered four polishes from Fragrance Direct and boy am I glad I picked it up. I didn't know what nail polish to use A Cut Above with because I didn't really have anything to match the pinky glitter. Then I stumbled across Sally's Essie Collection post, and saw that she paired Fiji and A Cut Above. Thats when I popped out to Boots and snapped it up! 

Fiji is a very light pink shade thats almost white. Its extremely pretty and would suit anyone in my opinion. The lasting power of it is fab just like most Essie polishes. Even though its a very pale colour, I only needed two coats which I thought was amazing. Then with A Cut Above added on as an accent nail, well it just looks amazing. A Cut Above isn't chunky glitter at all, but quite fine. It applied onto my nails equally and just looks really dainty. I definitely need to pick up some more of Essie's glitter polishes!

Have you tried this combination?
