Essie It’s Genius Review

A picture of Essie It's Genius Nail Polish

I’m a big fan of Essie polishes and when I looked at my collection I came across one I haven’t worn for a while.  I guess the only reason is because I’ve been wearing more pink and nude shades during summer and ‘It’s Genius’ is more of an Autumn shade although it’s so pretty nothing would stop me from wearing it all year around if I remembered I had it.

‘It’s Genius’ is a gorgeous deep berry/purple toned polish that a subtle glitter running through it. This is one of my all time favourite nail polish shades.  It isn’t too bright or too dark, it isn’t plain but at the same time isn’t too over the top either., it is the perfect metallic shade.  The formulation is what I would describe as ‘normal’ i.e not too thick or thin so you get flawless coverage with only two coats. As with most Essie polishes I have been impressed with how long this polish lasts without chipping.  When combined with both base and top coat it lasts around 5-6 days which is plenty for me as I change my nail polish weekly anyway.

You can buy Essie It’s Genius from Boots for £7.99.

What do you think of the ‘It’s Genius’ shade?

P.S I have a different colour on my ring finger in the picture above.
