A Longtime Lemming Acquired: Essie Play Date

Base: one coat CND Stickey
Color: two coats Essie Play Date
Top: one coat Essie Good to Go
Application: good (out of poor, average, good, excellent)
Essie Play Date was purchased by me. All opinions are my own honest thoughts.

I've wanted to pick up Essie Play Date for a long time. It seems like every time I ask someone wearing a cute purple polish what it is, they say "Essie Play Date". But, it's in the Essie permanent collection, and I always tend to skip over purchasing permanent items in favor of grabbing the seasonal LE stuff. However, I went looking for Naughty Nauticals the other day (with no luck I might add), and I really was in the mood to buy something. When I saw Play Date sitting there, I finally brought it home. I'm glad I finally did! It's such a perky purple creme! Bright, but not crazy bright, and fun!

The formula is pretty good. It's not quite "paints itself on your nails" quality, but I don't have any real complaints. This is two coats, the pigmentation was good too!

Sometimes I should remember that permanent polishes are pretty too! If you've had a longtime lemming like this, just go get it! You'll be glad you did!

Essie Play Date is available at a CVS near you.

I purchased this color recently as well, and it shot straight to the top of my "favorite purples" list! It's really fun to wear, and like you said it's just a perky, happy color!

What took us so long to buy it Abby? I'm glad we finally got it anyway, I really enjoy wearing this color!
