Essie Nail Polish in Navigate Her

Product Breakdown:

Essie Navigate Her 1

A very pretty pastel that sits somewhere between pistachio green and pea-soup green.

Essie Navigate Her 2

Like most pastels, this was a slightly problematic formula. It applied a little patchy, and required minimal brush-strokes to avoid dragging.

Essie Navigate Her 3

Navigate Her is definitely a three-coat polish if you have good technique, and if you’re ham fisted like me, you’ll probably need 4 coats to cover up the bald patches. The images above show 4 coats over Seche Base with no top coat.

What they say:

​About the collection:

This spring, essie pays tribute to the beautiful, ambitious women of action. Not content to play it safe and hedge her bets during the wintry economic climate, the change in weather perfectly suits her sunnier outlook. In both fashion and finance, she’s ready, willing and able to strike out and try something fresh and new.

“Fortune favors the bold” says essie brand founder and Global Creative Director, Essie Weingarten, “I am so inspired by women who dream big, go with their instincts and always manage to put their best self forwa.” Never one to rest on her formidable charms alone, this self-made woman knows what she wants and exactly how to get it. She’s in the drivers seat navigating her way through life with daring, wit and fashion aplomb.

This supremely flattering collection creates the perfect spring wardrobe for every woman on a mission. With skin-flattering brights and power pastels to suit every occasion, she’s always at the top of her game with essie color.

​About Navigate Her:

Navigate Her: new growth green.

My verdict:

Like virtually every pastel polish on the planet, Navigate Her can be a little tricky to work with. I personally don’t have anything similar in my polish collection, and I love the colour – so for me, it’s worth the trouble of applying 4 coats.
