NOTD - Essie Flirt

2.22.2014

I have a quick NOTD post for you today.
The weather is finally warmer and it feels like spring is just around the corner!
(I am aware of that another snow storm is coming next week, though...)

Essie Flirt is a classic Essie shade that I can recommend to everyone.
Such a gorgeous pick-me-up color that flatters nearly any skin tone!


Essie Flirt




Essie Flirt is a hot coral with gel-creme finish.
This is similar to OPI Cajun Shrimp but has more pink, which makes it more wearable for me.
Essie Watermelon comes to mind when I think about a "hot" shade, but Watermelon is more of a true hot pink.




It applies flawlessly with two coats and lasts on me well over one week with minimal tip wears.
I am wearing this over Seche Vite base and top coats.


Thanks for looking.
Have you tried Essie Flirt?
What is your favorite pick-me-up nail polish shade?


Wish everyone a happy weekend!

  5. Love how bright and sunny this color is! :D I'm kind of loving the sheer pale pink/nude stuff lately. So tame, but so sweet.

    1. It seems a lot of people love this for summer, too. I'm drawn to the softer shades as well influenced by the spring trend. ;)

  12. This is such a punchy and happy color! Definitely a mood lifter :) The warmer weather this weekend has been such a relief. I can't believe there's more snow on the way.

    Hope you're enjoying the weekend Lena!

    1. Hi Rowena!
      Yeah, I much enjoyed the mild weather last week. Hopefully the next snow storm isn't too bad! It's just too much this winter. ;(

  13. Dammit, why don't I have Flirt? LOL I really get into these shades when the weather warms up, around late April/early May. Gorgeous colour and application!

      This is totally your color, actually. Late spring into summer is a perfect time to wear this gorgeous shade. :)

  14. Love that shade!! The color looks really flattering. Beautiful. The finish is super glossy... I see that you used Seche Vite on top. Do you change up your topcoats or is that your go-to?

    1. Thanks, Mary!
      I have this salon size of the Seche Vite fast drying top coat, so I'm stuck with it for a while (not that I'm complaning. LOL)
      Poshe fast drying top coat is my other favorite, btw. ;)

  15. I haven't tried this but the shade looks similar with what I'm loving right now. I love this! That gloss on top makes the shade more pop, gorgeous! <3

      Yeah, the top coat is really something. No wonder all the salons use this one. The initial shine is unbeatable! :D

    1. It is possible this color has been discontinued..but I still see this color at nail salons all the time. You can find many dupes as well, but I'm happy my bottle is still in very good condition. :)
