Essie Expressie – 4 Shades, Swatches & Review

I actually still feel caught up and timely on my posts?? Am I a real blogger now? Should I not admit this and pretend I always have it together? How was everyone’s weekend? How did you spend it? I had a lovely productive time, and got a lot of swatching done. Weekends are where I catch up on a lot of stuff that got pushed back throughout the week, and they’re so relaxing and they’re just very important to me, okay. I need my weekend time. Are you the same way? Is it about being productive or relaxing?

Alright, onto the polish. Today we’re looking at something else that’s all about speed and time! Sorry, bad segue into talking about a quick dry polish line.

Essie recently released their new Expressie line, a new formula all centered around a quick dry formula.  There are FORTY new shades that they dropped, and they’re all available online at Ulta, Target & CVS, as well as being in stores at various drugstores. They seem to be mostly cream finishes with 4-5 shimmery shades. I only picked up creams to test out first, and of course, in some ugly pretty colors – my favorite.

As you can see, these are the same height as Normal Essie bottles, but skinnier. They have only .33 fl oz., less than the .5 fl oz that comes in normal polish bottles. For that reason, I don’t love that they’re priced at $9, the same as normal Essie shades but with less product. I do think the price should be lowered – or if you’re able to buy them at a discount would help. I had a bunch of Walgreens rewards that I used for these, so I got them all for about half off.
