NOTD: Essie French Affair & A Crewed Interest

So let’s preface with saying that these are my only two Essie polishes. They are both cream finishes, and are both light spring colors. I bought French Affair almost immediately after I saw it on Hollyannaeree’s video; I believe it was her March Hits & Misses of 2012. It’s the perfect pink shade and I’ve been tempted on multiple occasions to buy a back-up of it off of Amazon because it isn’t part of Essie’s permanent collection. The reason I haven’t? Consistency issues.

I had originally liked A Crewed Interest but didn’t purchase for the mere thought of spending over $7 on a nail polish is absurd to me. BUT OF COURSE ULTA PUT IT ON CLEARANCE FOR $3.99. So I bought it back in May, right before heading to NJ to watch/photograph my sister run the NJ Shore Marathon. She used it, and pretty much hated it. She didn’t like the color, and didn’t like… you guessed it, the consistency.
Nevertheless, I like to bring them both out when I’m in a relatively calm mood and now I love this combination on my nails!

This post may be edited in the future if I get bored and start messing around with that little baby bottle of Orly Glitter Polish that’s hanging out up there with the rest of them 🙂 Enjoy! xoxo
