essence Humpty Dumpty

essence Humpty DumptyI spotted the new Spring 2011 essence Limited Edition Fiarytale collection at Ulta and everything was just SO CUTE! I picked up Fairy Berry along with Humpty Dumpty (as well as the matching eyeshadows with the same name).

Humpty Dumpty is a metallic purple silver with silver microglitter. This is basically what OPI Not Like the Movies would look like if it was not a duochrome. The formula was great. Two coats were plenty for opaque coverage, though as usual, I did use three.

The only thing that was disappointing about this polish was the wear. The nail polish on my pointer finger just randomly disappeared! And soon after that the other nails started chipping away quickly. This was all on day 1 of wear.

When I use Fairy Berry I’m going to use less coats to see if it helps. I hate it when polishes wear so poorly! I can’t do much with a polish that won’t even last a day.
