I thought I was going to love Private Weekend. The description essie came up with is so lovely:
pristine and pretty. sparkling and crisp. infused with subtle shimmer, this radiant white is a lovely luxe getaway from the everyday.
Sounds gorgeous. Makes all my nail polishes senses excited. And the shimmer looks absolutely gorgeous in the bottle. So imagine how sad I was when I painstakingly applied 3 very streaky coats of Private Weekend just to end up with plain old white nails. It seriously looked like a white creme. Nothing special. No shimmer to be seen. Just…..white.
This is the only polish (so far…) to disappoint me from essie’s summer 2015 Peach Side Babe collection. I’ve really loved the other polishes I have tried.
I will link to the other polishes I’ve reviewed from the Peach Side Babe under the jump. There are also, of course, swatches of Private Weekend. Let me know if you can find any shimmer!
