Mani Mondays | Essie Under Where?


When I found out that the Pantone color of the year was Radiant Orchid, I bought Essie Under Where? This polish is a pretty orchid purple color. Usually, I tend to put on two coats (which is photographed), but this nail polish also looks beautiful and soft with just one coat. My mom applied one coat and it is a nice sheer orchid shade. Very pretty.

The formula is not that streaky; however, if you are only applying one coat, make sure you apply an even amount. Then, it will turn out a softer version that is not as opaque. 

Under Where? was part of the Essie Resort 2013 summer collection and retails for $8. I'm so glad I was able to add this shade to my collection as I have nothing like it.
