Essie Pink-A-Boo

I received a full size Essie polish in my April Luxe Box, and I wasn't too excited about it, just because I thought it would be sheer. I decided to give it a go anyways!

Pink-A-Boo is from Essie's 2012 Resort Collection, so that was nice that Luxe Box included a recent release! Pink-A-Boo is a delicate light pink polish with blue undertones and shimmers throughout. I had to use 4 coats to get an opaque finish, which was what I was worried about. Because you do need multiple coats, application will take longer than normal. Pink-A-Boo is a very feminine, delicate polish, I think that young girls would really like this "princess" polish.





Overall, this isn't my favourite polish, and I probably won't reach for it again considering I have so many other polishes that I love more. I might be passing this one along to my mom who loves delicate pinks like this. What do you think about Pink-A-Boo? Let me know in the comments!

  1. Four coats is way to much even for a sheer polish. It's nice but not great.

  2. I found it too sheer for my liking as well. The flakies make it an interesting polish to have, but it wasn't my favourite pink that's for sure!

  3. It's pretty but definitely light.

  4. I'm kind of "meh" on this one, too. And if I don't LOVE a polish, it doesn't come home with me. I already have No More Film from this collection - LOVE IT - and I really want to pick up She's Picture Perfect.

    1. Ya, this is not a polish I would have bought myself, but since it came in my Luxe Box I decided to give it a chance. The other colours in this collection look great! :)
