Posted May 8, 2020 by shooting in Beauty, Product Review / 14 Comments

Happy Second Friday of May (crazy, right?)! It’s time for Glossies Made Me Do It – where you share what a magazine has inspired you to do, make, read, try, think about lately. Anything goes – so link up with me below!

Cosmopolitan Magazine: May 2020

This issue has Sarah Hyland on the cover (from Modern Family fame) and I found a beauty product to try out in their Beauty Awards section.

Glossies Made Me Do It: Expressie Nail Polish

I’ve seen this polish mentioned elsewhere, but when I saw that Cosmo awarded it the Best fast-dry nail polish, I knew I had to finally try it out. Why?

  1. I love Essie nail polish in general; I’d say it’s my favorite brand.
  2. While I love Essie – and nail polish – I’m not great at taking the time to actually paint my nails.
  3. I figured my favorite brand – with quick dry – would be amazing and I had to see if it worked!

While I didn’t technically time myself, I will say that this dried really quick, which makes me SO happy. Now I can paint my nails more often without waiting around forever for it to dry. You still want to be careful of course, but it really does make painting your nails an easier activity! And I could see this being great for younger kids who get impatient waiting for their nails to dry.

The polish color I chose is Misfit Right In, which Essie describes as a shimmering bronze, which is pretty accurate. This is just two coats of the polish and that’s it! It’s so pretty, don’t you think? I love that on Essie’s website, you can see how the polish looks on people of different colors – so it goes pale, darker, and black. It gives you an idea of how it might look on you and that’s awesome!

I know the color I chose might scream more Fall than Spring/Summer, but I think the shimmering aspect really lends itself to lots of sunlight. Don’t worry though – Expressie by Essie has all sorts of colors available, so you’re sure to find something you love!! I ordered my polish from Target, and it was $9 a bottle – so not too crazy, but about on par for Essie polish. I will definitely be getting more of this polish in other colors!

What do you think? Do you already use Essie polish? Would you try their new Expressie line (and what do you think of the color I chose)?Β

  1. I love Essie polish! And I have a color very similar to this one… I just can’t remember which brand it is/ love this color on you and you gave yourself a very nice manicure!

    Hope you have a great weekend, Lauren! Xo

  2. I am impatient for my nails to dry, too. I don’t paint my fingernails very often, like once in a blue moon because they’d be destroyed at work, but I do paint my toes a lot. I love Essie’s nude colors. I’ll have to check out their quick dry. πŸ™‚

  3. I have grabbed one of these several times and put them back. Truth, while I love Essie’s colors…their polish is not long lasting at all on me. I get so frustrated. But since this actually dries faster, I may do it!

  4. I will try any polish that is glittery or shimmery! i always go for something like that when I get my nails done — and I wish I could get them done right now, but I don’t think that’s going to happen any time soon πŸ™ so this colour is an excellent rec — I do believe I have seen them around in Sydney stores

  5. I still remember from being a kid how annoying I found waiting for polish to dry. How nice that this polish dries fast and looks nice.

  6. Essie polish is my favorite. I swear, the white Marshmallow one I wear almost every day. I need to try this quick drying version!!! I’ll look for it next time I’m in Target or Walgreens! πŸ™‚


  7. My 4 year old granddaughter has given me a manicure recently and she used some instant-dry polish but I can’t remember what brand. This Essie bronze is such a beautiful shade. Wish Lucia had it in her bag of polishes. She selected red for my left hand and green for my right hand. Glitter on both.
