Hellooooo! How are you keeping? It’s Friday! Hope you all have a lovely weekend. I’ve got another gorgeous springtime nail polish to share with you! This is Essie’s ‘Virgin Snow’ (although I’d personally be a bit worried if newly laid snow was pale lilac…. but nevermind!) I’m really enjoying my pale, pastel colours at the moment; a bit of a change for me as I definitely opt for bright, bold colours most of the time!
Isn’t ‘Virgin Snow’ a pretty, delicate shade? This is one of Essie’s mini polishes, from a previous set, but it is available to buy as a full sized one. As with most Essie nail polishes, it is pretty opaque within the first coat, but definitely needed a second coat to even out any brush-stroke lines. It has a nice consistency, bordering on being quite thick but not so much that it’s difficult to apply. I always use a top coat with my nail varnish to try and persuade it to last a bit longer (!) but this leaves a lovely, glossy finish so looks fine without, if you prefer not to use one.
I used my usual Nails Inc Kensington Caviar Base Coat, then two coats of the Essie polish. I topped it off with a coat of Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy Diamond Top Coat (AKA the world’s longest-named top coat!!) It lasted really well without chipping – I’m impressed! Nail polish can chip on me within the first day, and often doesn’t last past 2 days without getting damaged. This was looking good for about 4 days! I’m impressed!
You can find the full sized version on sale here. I love this nail varnish and will definitely be wearing it again soon. What do you think of it? Have you ever seen lilac snow?!
