Essie Nail Polish in Fashion Playground

Essie — Fashion Playground (Nail Polish) Swatch & Review

Collection: Essie Spring 2013

Essie calls Fashion Playground a “pistachio green shimmer”. Honestly, the shimmer is very subtle and this reads more like a cream. The shimmer is in the form of clear microsparkles, when you can see them. They do give the polish a little more dimension, though, which is not a bad thing.

We’ve seen loads of light green polishes over the last several years. Fashion Playground is a little different from the usual white-mint green in that it’s a touch muted, and reminds me of a pastelized arsenic green.

Application’s thin and a little tricky, fairly typical of a pastel. I used three coats, but you could ostensibly use four. Once it’s on, though, it looks great!
