Polish of the Week

Graduation tassel and Hip-Anema
Hi Everyone! Sorry for the short post, but I have been super busy. Definitely a bittersweet weekend: sisterhood retreat was so much fun but I also had my last chapter meeting as an active sorority girl :(  I'm getting ready for a busy week ahead as well. Just picked up my cap and gown for graduation next week! Now time to focus on my three final exams and then I'm done with my undergrad!

My polish this week is Essie Hip-Anema. My awesome friends got me some graduation presents and this polish was among them. I must say I am obsessed with this color. It is very similar to OPI MonSooner Or Later if you have that one in your collection. Shown here is 2 coats with 1 layer of OPI Top Coat. The formula is great and goes on very nicely.

Hip-Anema is part of the Essie Madison Ave-Hue Collection. Below is the whole collection with the exception of Bonding With Whoever. I just have so many pale purple polishes that I couldn't bring myself to buy it. Also, Go Ginza is already in the purple family so I definitely didn't need two purples from the same collection.

L-R: Hip-Anema, Madison Ave-Hue, Avenue Maintain, Go Ginza, Maximillian Strasse-Her

Let me know what you think! Off to study for finals! Have a great week :)

Loyally Lacquered,

I am interested to see Maximillian Strasse-Her! It looks so pale in the bottle but I bet its a nice green!

Maximillian Strasse-Her is an awesome color! Definitely in the grey family but maybe some green-ish undertones
