Essie Nail Polish | Maximillian Strasse-Her

ESSIE MAXIMILLIAN STRASSE-HER | BEAUTYBAY - £7.82


With a new season, comes a new Essie collection, Spring 2013 brings us the Madison Ave-hue collection inspired by the world's most fashionable shopping destinations. The collection is a eclectic mix of colours, but my eyes was firmly set on the shade Maximillian Strasse-Her.

This is totally unique shade to my current nail polish collection and I can't liken any other shade I own to it, I would describe it as a cool grey-green with a muted creme finish. This is a strange polish in the sense that it looks a different each time I look at it.. ranging from a pastel green to a cool grey creme shade.

In terms of wear this polish applies smoothly and gives a high shine full coverage after just two coats. My one slight issue I have is that it chipped after just one day of wear, but I'm going to give it the benefit of the doubt because this has never happened with any of my other Essie polishes and I was lazy and didn't apply a top coat.

    1. They are very different, Mint Candy Apple is lighter and brighter. I swatched both of them in my Top 5 Spring Nails post x
