I had to tell you all about my favourite nail varnish of the moment: Essie Flowerista. How perfect is that name?!
You see, the thing is, I don’t really do bright pinks or warm bright nails. Like the traditional oranges, yellows and corals that are usually on trend for summer. I don’t think they really suit me. I don’t know… maybe is just me, but I think they make my hands look a bit greenish-yellow so I tend to prefer cold tone varnishes.
Flowerista (276) is the most beautiful bright magenta shade or vibrant plum dahlia as the brand calls it. The perfect hybrid between fuchsia and purple. The colour can look a bit more pink or a bit more purple depending on the light. I love its versatility! Bright and deep, fun and understated depending on how you style it and the occasion.
Flowerista is such a fun shade. Different from all the corals around but just as happy and bright. I can’t stop looking at my finger tips. They make me smile!
As for the formulation, it is pretty much standard Essie. Easy to apply, opaque with two coats, a creamy finish, fairly long-lasting and dries up quicker than most varnishes.
