Essie Fiji dupe: L'Oreal Color Riche Nails in Opera Ballerina

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).

It is their Spring Edition polishes (The lavender pastel blue called Nouvelle Vogue is gorgeous too! Check out my blog dedicated to all things pastel blue). This nudy pale pink colour is very pretty and soft. The brush is wide that makes application so easy and smooth. The consistency is quite sheer, I put on 3 layers to give an opaque finish.

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!

Budget Buy: MUA nail polish in Natural Days

When I was in Superdrug to buy the Tiffany colours (NYC nail polishes  - check out my blog post here ), as the offer was 3 for 2 across all nail polishes, I picked up a MUA polish as my freebie. I saw this pastel baby pink colour in Natural Days. The colour looks really cute in the bottle.
