Swap Swatches: Essie

* * * Make sure to check out my birthday giveaway here * * *

There are a few brands here that are hard to get for me here in the Netherlands. Sometimes not that hard to get, but I happen to live in a country where everything is expensive. Essie is one of those brands where I can get my hands on, but they are ridiculously expensive. The cheapest price is € 9,95, just a little $13,35. The most expensive is € 12,95, which is around $17,38.

In a swap a while back with Nory I received the gorgeous School Of Hard Rocks, but in my last swap with Iris I could add 3 more Essie's to my stash.

The first one is In Stitches. The color will look different in some lightnings. It looked like a brick color at first, but it's actually a kind of old pink color. Really nice!

Tart Deco. This one was on my wishlist for a long time! For some reason I expected it to be more pink, but it was actually more of an orange color. A really nice color orange :)

Last but not least: Sand Tropez. I remember seeing this one on Tumblr and on the girl it looked like a lovely nude color. I guess the girl was pale, because on me it's far from a nude color :P On swatches on Google it looks a bit sandy, but on me it doesn't. Still a pretty color though and I would definitely wear it!

From these 3 colors Tart Deco was the most pigmented. I did wear 2 coats, just like In Stitches. I'm super happy Iris gave me these Essie's :)

Did you notice my pics aren't square anymore? I like it better this was :)

Have a nice day!
