Essie Mesmerize

Here's another polish I got a while ago and forgot to post! I'm not sure I want to keep it, though. I'm not a huge fan of brights like this! I like my polishes to be a bit dusty, or complex... know what I mean?

Essie Mesmerize - surprisingly opaque, almost a 1 coater, but the formula is not thick like most 1 coaters.

Comparison: Essie Mesmerize and OPI Dating a Royal - sort of close, but Dating a Royal is hard to photograph (for me) since it's a jelly.

  2. I was torn between these two, bought Dating a Royal, didn't much care for it and then received Mesmerize as a gift.  So somehow, despite not loving either of these infamous dup-ish polishes, I wound up with both.  I think they're both great formulas, and fantastic straight-up royal blues, the color just doesn't suit me.

  8. Weird question. when you say you aren't sure you want to keep it, would you sell it?

  9. Sometimes I do. I think I swapped or sold this particular polish quite a while ago!
