Taking the photographs for this blog post has definitely got me in a summery mood! Spring can now move over and make way for summery brights, ice creams and sunshine!
I picked up Essie's Watermelon on one of my blogging trips to London last year and have only worn it several times so far. It's quite a bright shade, that I only tend to bring out when the sun in shining or if I'm feeling ill and need a little pick me up.
Colour-wise, in the bottle it looks like a standard deep pink polish but as you can see from the photographs I have taken it actually applies slightly orangey/red (obviously try to think of the inside of a watermelon!).
Application is the same for all Essie polishes I have tried, it's fairly thick and you can definitely achieve the perfect mani with just two coats. I always give mine a spray with the Elegant Touch Rapid Dry Spray after to make sure it doesn't smudge or chip.
I would definitely recommend this polish if you like pinky/reds but if you're after the colour that you see in the bottle then you might be slightly disappointed.
Do you have Watermelon in your Essie collection?
What do you think to the colour?
