NOTD #14: Essie It's Genius

I bought this polish last summer and today is the first time I used it. *blush*.

Does that happen to you too?

This is why I'm so happy to be undertaking my mission to wear every nail polish I own at least once in 2012.

Essie It's Genius is a beautiful grape purple colour with lovely coppery/gold flecks. I absolutely fell in love with this colour when I bought it but I seriously cannot remember ever using it.

I adore the shimmer in this polish, it's a lovely combination and compliments the purple well.

It applies easily, too. It took two coats for an even finish.


  1. I just bought (and blogged) about the same colour over the weekend. I really like it, it's fun but not too crazy for work.

  2. I probably wouldn't have bought it for myself, but it's pretty.
