Essie - Exposure | Swatches & Review

You'll have to excuse my wonky nubbin' nails - they're STILL recovering after having acrylics back in the beginning of June. My poor nails just haven't been the same. And even when my nails look like poo, I can't resist painting them fun, bright colors. So despite my funky fingernails, I had to show you this  polish. (It's not new to the polish world, but I picked it up only recently -- I'm always so late on the polish game!)

Say hello to Essie's "Exposure", a hot pink cream polish. There's no shimmer or glitter to this beaut, it's just plain ol' hot pink and I absolutely love it. I also used Exposure on my toes too, and it is the perfect summer pedicure color.

For this manicure, I used two coats for full opacity and topped it off with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri top coat. I have experienced some chipping along the tip of my nail within just 1-2 days, however I do think that's because of the top coat and not a testament to the staying power of this Essie polish.

While I'm not sure this color can be found in stores anymore, I do know you can find it on Amazon and eBay so if you love it - go get it! 

What are you wearing on your nails? Let me know!


  1. I may just have to get this - hot pink is my fave nail polish shade, especially for my toes! x
