Blogger’s Beauty Brawl – Day 5

Day 5 of the Blogger’s Beauty Brawl is Nail Varnish – specifically Summer Colours. Today I have chosen to review the Essie Creme De Methe Nail Polish in the shade Mint Candy Apple.


I chose to purchase this Nail Varnish purely based on the colour because I just thought it was so beautiful. It translates really well from bottle to nail and it seems to dry quite fast. I don’t know weather or not it’s because of the colour I chose but it seems to go on a little bit streaky and because of this it requires a second coat. After a second coat it is pretty much streak free and looks lovely. I find this nail polish to be relatively long lasting and it doesn’t really chip until after 3/4 days of wear (and I have two kids so I think that’s pretty good going!). I have scored this Nail Varnish a 70 out of 100.


I like the packaging of this product. The brush applicator works well, holding just the right amount of nail varnish to work with, then fanning out nicely across the nail. I have scored the Essie Creme De Methe Nail Varnish an 87 for Packaging.


You can buy this Essie Nail Polish for £7.99 from the Superdrug website and whilst there is cheaper nail varnishes out there I don’t think this is a bad price. For that reason I have scored this an 82 out of 100.

Now head over to and see what Kim chose and what she thought of it!

Thanks for reading and don’t forget to pop back tomorrow for Day 6 of the Blogger’s Beauty Brawl 2017
