It's no secret I love Essie as a nail polish brand, I have used Essie polishes for many years and they are definitely one of if not my favourite nail polish brand, they have a fantastic range of polishes in their permanent line and they also launch collections throughout the year and this years summer collection drew me in as soon as I saw it and I knew there were at least 2 of the shades I would definitely be purchasing.
One of those shades was Peach Side Babe a gorgeous peach shade and one I felt would be perfect not only for summer but also for my holiday to Greece in August, my favourite summer nail polish shades are corals and pinks and although Peach Side Babe is as the name suggests peach and not coral it is a beautiful shade, when I bought it as hard as it was and boy was it hard, I resisted and put the polish away with my "things to take on holiday" beauty products and didn't use it until the second week of my holiday.
Peach Side Babe is beautiful and a shade I think that will suit many different skin tones, I first wore it at the start of the second week of my holiday and have worn it since I have been home with a much deeper tan and it looked lovely so I imagine it will be lovely on both paler and deeper skin tones.
I used the Gel Setter top coat also from Essie (review here) to get the amazing shine and before that I had used 3 coats of the Peach Side Babe, the polish applied well and looked beautiful, I love the shade it is a perfect spring/summer shade or holiday shade and one I will get a lot of wear out of and will continue to wear over the next few weeks until my darker shades for Autumn make an appearance but I'm sure by then Essie will have a new collection I'll be loving so watch this space for reviews of their Autumn/Winter 2015 collection.
One of the things I was super impressed with and thought I would mention is that I took Peach Side Babe on holiday to Greece, it travelled really well and my daughters painted their nails poolside in 40 degrees of heat and sunshine. The polish is now back in the UK in my nail polish collection and perfectly alright it didn't go thick and gloopy in the heat and travelled really well and although it's not a huge thing it is something I thought was worth mentioning as so many nail polishes don't travel well or they go thick and gloopy in hot weather but this is absolutely fine and is just as it was when I bought it.
I love Peach Side Babe and would highly recommend it, it applied beautifully and the wear time as with all Essie polishes is amazing, it didn't stain my nails and doesn't contain any DBD, Toluene or Formaldehyde which is another bonus, it is a stunning shade and one I will definitely be re purchasing once my current bottle runs out.
If you would like to try Peach Side Babe, you can find it at Superdrug for £7.99.
