NOTD: Essie Van D’Go

I LOVE this color but I hate pretty much everything else about this nail polish. 

The good… the colour! It’s the perfect light pastel peach with a hint of pink making it an awesome coral colour for summer. So very versatile that it changes shades depending on what your wearing – sometimes it’s more pink, sometimes more peach. It’s opaque and so creamy, looking at it definitely brings to mind visions of sitting at the beach eating waffle cones of ice cream (my ultimate weakness btw). Van D’Go is a warm color that will look good on most skin tones, perfect for sunny days but is wearable any season really.

Three coats, outside in natural light
The bad… the formula sucks. It’s thick, goopy and hard to work with! The first coat is super streaky so it requires epic amounts of patience to make it look nice. Things do look up at coat two, but you should add a thin third coat for luck! I will be wearing this polish quite often for the warmer months since the colour is gorgeous, but probably wouldn’t repurchase it because the formula is evil! lol

Bye bye winter… Hello spring! It’s time to bust out the bright, fun nail colours! Which nail polishes are you loving for spring/summer? Please let me know about any I should try 🙂
