This was one of my favourite summer manis. My really good friend works for L’Oreal and L’Oreal owns Essie or distributes Essie (I’m really not too sure). Anyway, I told him I wanted to try Essie and he told me he’d grab me a bottle. So, naturally, I thought this meant one bottle. He picked me up for our monthly dinner date and surprised me with four bottles and an all in one base and top coat. I LOVE MY FRIENDS!!!

So anyhow, this was the first one I tried and it’s called ‘Secret Story.’ I absolutely love this colour. It’s really fun for spring or summer. I would call it a candy pink. It reminds me of candy. Not a true hot pink. The application was almost flawless. I was really surprised about this due to the tiny brush and handle (unlike Orly, who’s brushes I love so much). The formula was thinner than I would’ve liked, but somehow it worked. Sometimes I hate really thin polish because it’s almost water like and you have to apply at least three or four coats in order for it to look like it does in the bottle. This was thin and applied evenly and well. Over all, I would totally recommend this colour. I put it back in my stash, but it’s one I’ll take out and wear again J
