Essie Retro Revival
Although I do love an Essie polish for reliable and even colour, I’m not exactly blown away by the Essie Retro Revival collection. But, it’s interesting in that it’s a celebration of 35 years of Essie (who knew?!) with a re-launch of some of their best loved shades.
They’re all archive shades that have been best-sellers over the years although I cannot believe that For The Twill of It isn’t there – a duochrome that was a big favourite of mine (metallic greeny/red).
I haven’t swatched Birthday Suit becaue it just doesn’t show up (it’s a barely there nude). So from top and heading around we have: Bikini With A Martini (a pearly, peachy-pink shade and the only one I couldn’t get an even finish on after two coats), Sequin Sash (a silver sparkle shot beige/nude), Life Of The Party (bronzed red), Cabana Boy (pale pearly grey) and Starry Starry Night.
Starry Starry Night is from 1997, Life of The Party, 2002, Bikini with a Martini, 2006, Sequin Sash, 2005, Birthday Suit, 1981 and Cabana Boy, 2005.
They’re £7.99 each and in Superdrug and Boots.
