Essie No Baggage Please

I have no idea what possessed me to buy No Baggage Please (836) from Essie's Wedding collection this year. Maybe it was because the woman at Ulta put a piece of tape on one of my nails, then painted the polish on. It was nice of her, but possibly I felt guilty "using" the polish and ended up buying it. At least the trial run was more hygienic than her actually painting it directly onto my nail, yes?

 

As you may be able to tell from my lack of enthusiasm, I am not a fan of No Baggage Please. There's something about this light bubblegum pink- it's a little lighter than my pictues show- that I just am not a fan of. If you love this type of color and are looking at buying NBP, make sure you have a bunch of nail polish thinner on hand. It's one thick, streaky pain in the bottom. Even after I dumped a ton of thinner in, it's still a little streaky. And seriously, what's the point of having shimmer in such a thick formula? It's just going to be obscured. Even after my thinner party, the shimmer is still hard to find on the nail. Don't be fooled by looking at the bottle- your nails will not be that shimmery.

 

You don't really notice how bad the streakiness is from far away. This might look better on toes just for that reason. But when you look at your nails up close... hooboy. I did three thin coats over ridgefiller and I certainly could have used another coat.

 

Bottom line: totally not worth the purchase. Were I one to return nail polish, I'd be returning this one.
