Review | Essie It's Genius

Essie It's Genius

When I was re-organising my makeup collection last month I came across some nail polishes I forgot I had and one of these is this beautifully rich shade It's Genius which is by Essie. I was so excited when I saw it because even in the bottle it looks lovely and I couldn't wait to apply it. In fact, I did that same afternoon.

Essie polishes are one of my favourite brands of nail polish because they have a huge range available, most of the formula's are consistent so you know what you're getting when you purchase a new one and the price is reasonable. It's always fun scanning the shelves in Boots or Superdrug to find a hidden gem and this shade is definitely one of those.

It's a Genius is is a stunning violet quartz which has rich berry tones and a subtle shimmer running through it. The formula is smooth and you can easily achieve a flawless finish with just two coats. When combined with base and top coat this shades lasts around 5-6 days without chipping and is very wearable throughout the year but particularly in Autumn and Winter when this type of shade is most popular.

Since re-discovering this polish I have worn it a lot. Instead of switching my polishes weekly like normal I have just reapplied this one and wherever I go someone seems to comment on it. This shade is definitely a winner from Essie.

Essie It's a Genius is available at Boots for £7.99.

  2. I LOVE this shade! Your post popped up in my Bloglovin feed and I actually said 'oooooh lovely' out loud and had to see what shade it was. 5-6 days wear sounds great, although I have to admit I am pretty bad at applying top coat. I get impatient with waiting for it to dry!

    1. Thanks for your lovely comment Samantha, I'm glad you like this shade! It's so pretty! I sometimes skip top coat too if I'm in a rush but always end up regretting it when I get chips! x

  3. Gorgeous color of nail polish. I love it.

  5. this is such a pretty shade! Essie polishes are definitely my favourites, I don't know why all polishes don't have the same wide brush it makes it so much easier x

    1. I agree! They are so much easier to use and the selection of shades is amazing! x
