Essie 'Cute As a Button'

I don't own many coral colors, and I haven't owned this Essie polish for that long. But this color really won me over quickly, and like a parasite it wiggled its way into my favorites list. It is a perfect coral for me, and I ♥ it!

Price and Availability
About $8. This color is part of Essie's permanent line so you can find it in Rite Aids, Walgreens, CVS, and many placed online.

Formula and Application
This is sheer and a little streaky, and you need at 3 coats to make it completely opaque. But it dries fast, so the number of coats needed does not matter to me. After the application, it is a smooth, creamy coral. To me, it leans on the pinkish/reddish side, but it is still a gorgeous coral color. It wears really nicely too, I wore this for a whole week with no chipping. As you will be able to see from the pictures, I get really bad tip wear, and I guess I don't bother to clean up the polish around my cuticles either...LOL. I usually take a shower after I do my nails, and that extra polish comes off after I shower, so I don't bother to properly clean it up with acetone.

I have on 3 coats of 'Cute As a Button' and one coat of Seche Vite.
Thanks for reading :)
