NOTD: Essie's Snap Happy makes me Happy


By now every blog writer or blog reader has heard of the famous Essie nail polishes and their big choice of colours. So I decided to pick up a colour too: a bright red one (quelle surprise..) A classic colour that needs to be bought in every possible shade, right? Right?! RIGHT?!

Right. I decided to test it myself and see if the hype around the nail paint is really worth it.





The colour red knows many shades. I own quite some, but most of them are either deep red or dark red. So I decided that it was time to buy a bright red one: 244 Snap Happy. This beauty immediately caught my eye! It was a red with the right amount of POP. Perfect. 


This is a picture with flash. As you can see it's a really bright red, with a hint of orange undertones (only seen with flash or very bright sunlight). I think I'll call this colour a tomato red! Anyway, it's red and it's bright and it pops and it's classic. All I need. 



On the pictures I'm wearing 2 coats and that's enough for a good coverage. For perfect coverage I think you'll need a third layer. But as you can see 2 coats work fine too! Essie Snap Happy shines like no other! I love the finish and how smooth it applies. The nail polish dries incredibly quick, I couldn't believe it. I accidently touched my nail and panicked, but panic was soon over when I discovered it was already dry!



The formula of the nail polish is lovely too! Not too thick and certainly not too watery. Like I mentioned, it dries quickly. Also, the nail polish has a lovely brush that makes painting the nails easier. Unfortunately I didn't wear the nail polish long enough to know when it starts chipping.

I kinda get the hype and I understand why many bloggers are crazy about Essie. Did the hype get me too? Not entirely. I love it, don't get me wrong! I love the formula, the colour, the brush and how quickly it dries. But I don't love it enough to pay more dan €6 for it, to be honest. Sorry. I'm staying loyal to my Catrice nail polishes (but still trying other brands too!). Maybe if Essie has a unique colour that I need to have. Otherwise, not really. 

HOWEVER, Snap Happy does make me happy :) 
I'm glad I bought it! Pretty colour and lovely formulation.

The bottle of Essie nail polish contains 13,5 ml. I don't remember how much I paid for it, but I think it's around €10. 





What is your favourite nail polish? Brand + colour, please!
I'd love to read about your favourite(s)!
