If you haven’t heard or seen it, Essie recently launched a brand new line of quick drying nail lacquers in 2020 called “Expressie”! Expressie a One Step Color & Shine nail lacquer for all you on-the-go gals! Expressie polishes are an 8-Free, Vegan Formula with 40 Expressive, Trans-Seasonal Shades to choose from.
Besides the adorable name and narrow bottle each Expressie polish comes with a new angled wide brush making it easier to paint with your non-dominant hand.
I was lucky to receive 6 new shades from the line. Each of which i love.
Most of all the colors can be worn with or without a top coat and they last!
Watch my video and read my thoughts on each of the shades below:
saffr-on the move – a warm cream terra cotta brownish orange. I would recommend 2 coats with this shade. But if you’re in a hurry one coat can get you through. No streaking or bubbling.
seize the minute – A warm deep orange red. You can definitely get away with one coat with this shade, but i would recommend two, just in case you went a little thin on one or two strokes. Love this shade!
air dry – a cream slate blue. Probably my favorite of all the shades in this review. No need for 2 coats. Air Dry applies opaque after just 1 coat. A gorgeous shade for all skin tones! Obsessed with this shade!
precious cargo-go! – A creamy army green. A bit on the cooler side precious cargo-go will look amazing with any skin tone. I would wear 2 coats for this shade.
in a flash sale – a creamy bright orange. I would recommend 2 coats but you can get away with one if need be!
crop top & roll – a pale creamy nude. A pretty shade for all skin tones. I would use 2 coats for this shade. A tad streaky depending on how firm of a hand you have when painting your nails. Use lighter pressure to avoid streaks.
I tried these polishes with and without a top coat and i’m absolutely obsessed! They’re meant to be worn without a top coat and definitely dry faster without, with a medium shine. The best part about it is they’re long lasting! Totally Being Serious Here!!! I was able to get 5 solid days without chips! That’s with going to the gym and doing all of my daily activities!
If you haven’t tried them yet, definitely go pick yourself up a bottle or two! You can find the line of Expressie Nail Lacquers at Target, Walmart, Ulta, CVS and Amazon.
Suggested retail price per bottle is $9.
