I'm a little late to the game on this one, but take a look at Tour de Finance ($8) from Essie's Spring 2012 "Navigate-Her" Nail Lacquer Collection!

Essie Nail Lacquer in Tour de Finance is a bright fuchsia pink with finely-milled shimmer. The shimmer flecks appear to be a bluish purple color, which gives the polish an iridescent fuchsia glow that looks really festive and pretty. We've been seeing plenty of fuchsias lately, so this polish is definitely on-trend.

In addition to the lovely color, I am very happy with the quality of Essie Nail Lacquer in Tour de Finance. The nail polish brush fans out well and coats your nail effectively. Plus, Essie Nail Lacquer in Tour de Finance has great coverage. I applied two coats, but you could very easily get away with only doing one.

I've only tried one other Essie Nail Lacquer (Merino Cool, which I wrote about in May), but I've adored them both for their beautiful shades and stellar quality. Browsing Essie's website has me hungry for more! 

Do you love Essie? Or does your heart belong to another polish brand? Tell me your manicure secrets!

  1. I've not jumped on the Essie bandwagon yet but I think I definitely will soon with a purchase of Fiji - that colour owns my heart right now with all the swatches I've seen on various blogs! Opaque in 2 coats is pretty impressive for nail varnish nowadays - my usual is normally at least 3!

    1. I just looked at swatches of Fiji after reading your comment -- it is such a pretty pale pink! I really love the color selection that Essie offers. Hope you enjoy if you end up trying it out!

    1. I didn't even realize it had shimmer when I bought it (I wasn't looking closely). I was pleasantly surprised by the color & dimension! Love fuchsia.

    1. That actually sounds super amazing. I can never pull off blue on my nails, but that sounds like it might work. I love cornflower blue :)
      Do you wear a lot of Essie?

    2. Yes I do - the brush is really easy to control & their colours are so much nicer now that they've gotten a little more edgier & on trend.

    3. I really like the brush as well. Good brushes are so important for nail polish! I love how Essie's colors are on trend, yet still always pretty and fem.
