Essie’s nail polishes are not that expensive anyway (£7.99 each). However, every little helps when it comes to saving pennies on our wallet. The nail polish I am talking about is L’Oreal Color Riche Nails in Opera Ballerina (£4.99 each).

Compare to Essie Fiji, Essie Fiji has more pink in it where Opera Ballerina is more nude and has a peachy undertone, which reflects the soft leather ballet dancing shoes (which are peachy pink, not pink-pink)
I love the L’Oreal bottle too! It is slim and compact, easy to store and product won’t be wasted! Honestly, when do you ever finish a full bottle of nail polish, ever?
While Essie polishes is £7.99 each, L’Oreal Color Riche Nails is only £4.99 per bottle.
To conclude, taking into account the packaging, the colour, the finishes and the price, I am with L’Oreal Color Riche Nails in Opera Ballerina all the way!
