Essie Nail Lacquer in Oui Madame, Review & Swatch

Essie Nail Lacquer in 032, Oui Madame
.47 fluid oz.-Made in USA-$7.99

Yay for my first Essie polish!
Oui Madame is a pearly, sheer white color that looks a little lavendar/gray in some lights.
When I did my nails, I had to put four coats of this polish on. Four coats. Now normally I don't mind putting 2 or 3 coats on, but I had to do four before the color really started to show. Just know that the color is very sheer-my nail line is pretty visible in most lights.

I also wanted to try out "Break the Ice" by Wet n Wild from the Mega Last line, so I painted that on my pointer finger, and it's slightly less pearly and more shimmery than Oui Madame is. But they go great if you layer them on top of each other.

Wet n Wild Break the Ice & Essie Oui Madame
The only problem I have with the Essie polish is that the formula is very thing and because of that, it's highly prone to chipping and cracking, which happened on my nails halfway through the second day.

The Pros:
The color is beautiful, pearly & sheer

The Cons:
The formula could be a little bit thicker to resist chipping.

The Bottom Line
I really like this color, and for the four days I wore it, I got a lot of compliments. I recommend it!

    1. It's the most beautiful when it's in the sun! Thanks for stopping by xoxo

  3. I totally agree with your review that Essie's formula is definitely thinner. I have two colours from them, my favorite is thigh high but man...once you put it on it chips and you see it right away since it is a metallic red! Visiting from the blog hop and hope you'll stop by. Would you like to follow each other?

    1. I know! You could totally tell it was chipping badly! But I got it on clearance so I wasn't too gutted xoxo
