NOTD Essie - Jamaica me crazy


I don't know about anyone else but I find that when I'm trying to choose a nail polish to buy and there are whole lines of the same colour in various shades (and I'm talking about when there are 10+ bottles of pink polish all varying ever so slightly from each other), I just find myself overwhelmed and I find it very difficult to pick out the one I like the most. This is exactly how I felt while I was standing in front of the Essie stand in Boots. So I tend to gravitate towards the colours that stand out most to me because they aren't grouped with other shades that are basically exactly the same colour.

This is how I came across and decided to buy 'Jamaica me crazy'. It's a beautiful purple colour which has a very deep pink tint to it and has silver micro-shimmer . I like that the shimmer transfers well enough on to the nails that it can be noticed and because it's just a shimmer, it isn't a pain to get off.

What are your favourite Essie polishes that are perfect for Autumn?

    1. I've been hearing a lot about Carry On recently. Did you get it from Boots? I've been wondering if they are going to carry all the collections that come out..

  4. Agree with the shimmer point! Most glitter nail varnishes are absolute hell to get off...! :P
    It's such a beautiful colour too! :)

    1. It's definitely more purple than pink so I think you'd probably like it if you like purples :)
