Summer is in full effect in San Diego with palm trees and a beautiful breeze. I’ve been switching out my nail polish more often and have recently fallen in love with a polish in my Essie collection. For the most part, I love Essie polishes, although I’ve purchased some that were just too streaky. Mrs. Always-Right, on the other hand, is absolutely beautiful. If I could describe this polish in one word, it would be raspberry. Mrs. Always-Right is a gorgeous rose, yet neutral mauve that is very flattering on my skin tone. This polish is definitely one that I can wear year round!
Initial Thoughts: First off, this polish is part of Essie’s 2016 Bridal Collection. The formula for this polish is very opaque even with one coat of nail polish. Although I still prefer using a base coat, 2 coats of nail polish and a top coat for longer wear time. In these pictures, I’ve only applied 2 coats of polish, although I definitely think I could’ve gotten away with only 1 coat. This is definitely, hands down, one of my FAVORITE Essie polishes! The application was a dream!
I normally take pictures after I do my manicure and wait 1-2 weeks before writing a thorough review so I can state the pros and cons to the best of my ability. These pictures were actually taken after 3 days of wear and I’ve been doing some heavy duty housework as we are currently remodeling our kitchen. The polish wore pretty well with minimal chipping. Usually, I have found that Essie polishes are great in terms of dry time and longevity, which is absolutely perfect for me! I’ve been loving this color during the summer, but I’m sure it’ll be flattering as just as pretty in the fall or winter!
