I’ve been reaching for a lot of neon-like pinks of late and today’s choice is no different. The Essie Pink Parka was part of their Cuddle with Color Fall 2009 collection. I didn’t buy it then, but it has been sitting in my nail polish rack for a number of years and today is the day it is finally swatched.
Essie describes this colour as,
a piping hot pink.
Essie Pink Parka
Limited Edition | 1 x 13.5ml / 0. 4 fl oz
That is a super bright, neon-blinding, highlighter pink and I love it! The colour is louder than any word you can speak as this is definitely an eye catching colour. Unfortunately the formula was a bit trickier to work with. The first coat applied well but there were visible streaks on each nail. Two thin coats of polish later, I have solid blocks of neon pink on each nail. I was quite impressed that the streaks were covered easily and the formula levelled off nicely to hide any mishaps from the earlier applications. It dried to a semi-matte finish so I applied a coat of top coat to make it shiny and voila!
The Essie Pink Parka nail polish is available to purchase now online and in store at Boots, Superdrug, CVS or Ulta Beauty.
