Review - Essie Neo Whimsical

Essie 'Neo Whimsical'

If you've been reading my blog for a while now, you should definitely be familiar with this nail polish. It's no stranger to favourites posts but, for some reason, I'm only just getting round to reviewing it. Essie's 'Neo Whimsical' is, without a doubt, my favourite nail polish and it has been for about a year now.

It's no secret that I love Essie nail polishes; the formula is gorgeous and the range of colours is unbelievable. Unfortunately, they're not the most affordable nail polishes ever but I really think the formula makes the price pretty reasonable. I have quite a few Essie polishes now but this one beats them all by a mile. The formula is just as brilliant as always - smooth, non-streaky and opaque in 2 coats - and it usually lasts 5 or 6 days on me before it gets properly chipped. Neo Whimsical has absolutely no shimmer and is an absolutely beautiful pale pinky-purple colour which, in my opinion, compliments every skin-tone and every outfit. I haven't decided for sure yet, but Neo Whimsical is a pretty strong contender for my prom nail polish. ^_^

Unfortunately, I couldn't find Neo Whimsical on the Boots website but you can see the full Essie range at Boots here, and you can see Neo Whimsical on the Essie website here (it's much paler in person). Essie nail polishes are £7.99 unless you're lucky and find them in T.K Maxx. :3

Have you tried Neo Whimsical? Do you have a favourite nail polish? ♥
Lots of love, Cat


  1. I love the colour :) It's not on the website like you said but I'm certain I saw this in my local Boots this morning and it looks really nice. I've never used an Essie nail polish before but they look great.
    I think my favourite nail polish would be Mind the Gap, Victoria from Rimmel London - I love the light blue colour and the name is just brilliant in my eyes.

    Great post :) xx

    1. I've seen Mind the Gap, Victoria in Boots before - it's gorgeous! I might buy it. ^_^ xx

  2. I've never been much of a fan of nail polish- it makes my hands feel funny (lame, I know!) but this colour reaaally makes me want to give nail polish another go!! Lovely review, it looks like such a nice wee polish!!

    1. You should definitely try Neo Whimsical! I can literally apply this nail polish in the dark (I have many times before) in 5 minutes and I feel more comfortable when I'm wearing this than I do when my nails are polish-less. Crazy but true. :'D xx
