NOTD - Essie Fiji

TGIF everyone!  Was this the longest week ever or what?  Maybe because I didn't have Monday off and was jealous of everyone who did.  :)

Today I'm doing a nail of the day post.  This is the first time I did a "trendy" look and painted one nail on each hand a different color.

Ok I know this NOTD is not "fall" or seasonal in any way, in fact, it's super summery but I don't care!  This nail look includes Essie Fiji and Sephora by OPI in Looks like Rain, Dear.

I feel like I'm the last person on the planet to get Essie Fiji, and I think it's one of their best sellers.  I actually got it during the recent 20% off sale, which I may do a haul post for.  The first time I ever heard of it is when I saw Emily Maynard wear it on the Bachelorette.  Actually, every color she had on her nails that season was sooo pretty! 

To get this look I applied a Sally Hansen top and base coat, 2 thick coats of Fiji, and 1 coat of Looks like Rain, Dear on my ring fingers.

Fiji is beautiful!  It's very girly and kind of a cotton candy pink.  But to be honest, it's a very fussy nail polish.  It's VERY streaky.  I used 2 thick coats but I can still see slight streaks on some fingers.  I could have easily used 3 coats.

The fussiness of this polish is not going to stop me from using it.  I definitely think the color is well worth the trouble of applying 3 coats.  I would recommend this for sure.

Anyways, I hope you enjoyed my NOTD!  Here's to hoping it lasts me through the weekend!  :)

I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!!
