Essie Muchi Muchi Nail Lacquer - Review

Saturday, August 25, 2012


In my opinion you can't beat a good milky pink for an everyday nail polish choice
it gives the impression of groomed nails/hands and pretty much matches every outfit.
Truthfully I blame the Kardashians for my love affair with square nails and light pink polishes
for a good few years now I have been searching for my perfect nude pink polish
and have finally found it in Essie Muchi Muchi!


Essie Muchi Muchi is a light warm toned pastel pink that is crème in formula,
admittedly it is not the most opaque of polishes but it does build up wonderfully 
without streaking or taking forever and a day to dry.
I have to admit that I am still struggling with the fan style brush,
my nails are a little narrow and I do tend to make a mess...oops!


One coat gives a sheer wash of pink that looks natural but does tone down the natural nail shade,
two coats gives the nails a pretty pink finish but the nail line is still visible and three coats gives
an almost opaque finish.
As the polish is crème in formula regardless of how many coats you apply the result is always
of a high sheen finish.

Essie Muchi Muchi is part of the diffusion line and is available from both Boots and Superdrug stores
for £7.99/13.5ml - link 

Nail Polish Disclaimer - I no longer comment on the wear time as we all apply polishes differently (top/base coats etc) and as I change my polish almost daily sometimes several times a day due to swatching purposes I do not feel that I can fairly comment on wear time

  3. I don't think I like it either, I've got the Essie Ballet slippers which I use for manicures and is a paler pink. I'm not sure I like this pink. Good review though!

    1. Not to worry we can't like them all :) I didn't get on with Ballet Slippers funnily enough, it doesn't sit right with my skin tone which is annoying as it is such a pretty shade.

  4. I use ballet slippers for my nude/ tinge of pink. It looks so natural and classy. I too blame the Kardashians for my love of nude polishes!

  5. I like the colour, its a lovely shade of milky pink, but I have a pet peeve about nail polish that doesn't go 100% opaque. For some reason it just annoys me if I can see the nail line through my nail polish.

  7. I think it's not so good... Its lack of coverage makes it very difficult to achieve a good looking nails. Not so good for the brand, I think :S

    1. Essie polishes can be a little hit and miss so I know exactly what you mean, I like this one but totally get that it's not to everyone's taste :)

  8. A beautiful every day colour for the summer. And it looks like you get good coverage from this without too many coats.
