Essie Nail Polish in Peach Daiquiri

Hey y'all.  I thought I would share the nail color I am wearing and loving - might I add - this week!

If someone would have recommended this color to me merely a few months ago, I would have told them no thanks. It is too coral! It is too bright! It doesn't suit me. It doesn't look natural. Yep! Debbie Downer I know. 

At present, I am thoroughly enjoying the coral trend. Of course my liking is definitely limited, but I am definitely testing the new waters. 

Essie's Peach Daiquiri is not really a peach in my opinion.  I would describe it as a bright and vibrant, deep coral pink with a reddish-pink undertone.  This color looks bright fuchsia in certain lighting. 

Obviously, I purchased mine at Kohl's using the much-appreacited 30% off coupon. Y'all, well at least my trusted readers, know this fact pretty well. The nail polish retails for $8.50 without any discount and minus sales tax. 

I would definitely recommend getting this shade, especially because this Essie polish has a nice formula. The formula is great, not thick and not thin. The perfect medium. The first coat is fully opaque and not at all streaky, but I added a second coat to even out the appearance. On some nails I added a third coat. The reason being that this polish can apply minimally patchy because the polish gushes off the brush. I recommend wiping off the brush and taking a breath between coats as to not drag the first coat by the second coat.  I know my description might make y'all think this polish is a tough one to apply, but it is not at all. Trust me! I don't have a good threshold when it comes to formulas and application. 

The staying power is typical. Typical, eh? Well, I wore the polish on Friday and it is now Tuesday.  I have minimal chipping on the index fingernail of my right hand. So, five days and still looks very nice. 

I hope this post was informative and helpful. Your friendly comments are much appreciated. 
Come back soon. Thanks!

  1. Lovely color!! I hardly ever go out of my nail color comfort zones lol! Essie is my favorite though :)

  2. Great color! Your nail beds are gorgeous. One day I want to do your nails!!

  3. Such a pretty shade! I would definitely agree that it is not peach at all. They should have called it Strawberry Daiquiri, but who are we to tell them that lol. Its so funny because I never use to like coral until last year when EVERYTHING I had needed to be coral lol. What inspired the "coralism" in my life was the Tarte Aqualillies palette.
