The nail polish I could wear for the rest of my life

Monday, March 16, 2015


If I were forced to only wear one shade of nail polish the rest of my life, Essie's Play Date would be The One. It's everything I look for in one little bottle. Opaque in two coats. Check. Applies easily, without streaking or leaving brush strokes. Check. I buy more purple-toned polishes than any other color, and this one is the unicorn of purples. You think the perfect purple doesn't exist, but let me tell you, it does and it's this one. It's just bright enough without being obnoxious, and it's not too light or too dark. This tone matches almost everything in my wardrobe, and is such a perky shade that I feel happier just looking at it. Last, but not least, like most Essie polishes, it's typically at least a full week before I get a single chip. Sorry, Mint Candy Apple, you've been bumped from the #1 seat in my rotation. 

I'd love to know what your absolute favorite nail polish is right now. Let me know in the comments!

  5. I tend to wear neutrals shades or red, not much color. But it's spring soon so I should pick up this shade and try it!

  6. I love neutral polish in the winter, but I'm all about the bright pinks, purples, and blues in the spring and summer! I hope you like this one if you try it!

  9. This is such a gorgeous colour - I love Essie polishes as they're all unique and have something lovely to offer!
    At the moment I'm loving darker shades but when the weather gets better I tend to go for pastel shades :)

  17. I love purple polishes too! Some of my favorites are Merino Cool from Essie, and OPI Planks A Lot. I have way too many polishes to justify getting another one, but once I clear out my collection Play Date is sure to have a spot!

  21. What a gorgeous color, I need to pick this up for spring! My favorite color at the moment is Nails Inc. Porchester Square, kind of a wintery shade I know, but it seriously goes with everything.
