Essie Allure and Eternal Optimist Nail Polish Review

Essie Allure and Eternal Optimist Nail Polish

When I went to the National Wedding Show at the end of February they had a Essie stand which was filled with more polishes than I have ever seen. It was lovely to be able to look at the different shades but I was instantly drawn to a duo packaged neatly in a box as they are my wedding colours – pink and white/ivory.

One of the polishes in the duo is a blush pink called Eternal Optimist which was the first one that caught my eye. It is a pale neautral shade which is described as spiced tea rose with a splash of cream. The formula of this one is lovely. With just two coats you get a flawless finish and when combined with Seche Vite as a top coat after five days it hasn’t chipped at all. This polish was worn by Millie Mackintosh on her wedding day and I can see why.. it’s  very pretty neutral shade which is perfect for Spring and Summer.

The second polish is Allure which was worn by Kate Middleton on her wedding day. I thought it was funny I unknowingly chose a nail polish Kate wore as of often told I look like her! Anyway, this polish is a very pale pink, in fact it is the palest polish I own. It some lights it looks off white but in others you can see the hint of pink which is very pretty. The formula of this polish isn’t as good as Eternal Optimist. It’s far thinner and even after three coats you can still see the white tips of my nails underneath which won’t appeal to everyone. Again, when combined with top coat it easily stays chip free for several days.

If you want to buy this duo which funnily enough is known as the bridal duo you can purchase it for £12.00 from Boots

    Ooh both of these colours are so pretty, and that's pretty reasonable at £12 for the two. I adore Essie polishes as they apply like a dream and are long lasting. Lovely photography! xx

    This duo is soo gorgeous. Allure does look super pale; I think it would look amazing on lighter skin tones. I'd be more inclined to purchase Eternal Optimist. I'm your newest follower on GFC, Bloglovin and twitter as I love your vibrant product photos and the feel of your blog! Feel free to stop by my blog sometime xx

    I do like Essie. I have acrylic nails so going to the nail shop I never need to buy nail varnish. They have a small range of Essie there that Im always attracted to because of their pretty colours. Lasts well too.
