Essie Cute As A Button

This didn't get released too long ago and it is one of my all time favourites. If there are shades I can't live without it's; corals, peaches, mint greens, baby pinks, baby blues and of course bright versions of all those :P

I used just two coats here miraculously. For some reason when I do a real manicure with Cute As A Button I always need to do three... Weird.

There is already a considerable dent in my bottle. I have forgotten how many times I have worn it since I got it. Just love it!

Also when I gave my nana a manicure, I was wearing this shade and it is her favourite colour so she chose it too. She now wants a bottle for herself :)

The formula is alright. Nothing special. I would love it if it was thicker so I didn't need to do 3 coats. Maybe ridge filler could help? It is quite easy to guide it where to go though.

I am contemplating on ordering another... or two... I can see that I am just going to wear and wear and wear this all throughout summer and spring.

*1st swatch is the most accurate


  1. Cool Steph. I went to ulta looking for this color but it was sold out. Now I can see from your swatch how the color looks. It's very pretty. Thanks!

  2. That color is gorgeous! I am going to have to check it out now, thank you!

  3. Denny - I hope you find it!

    Gildedangel - :D yes you must!

  4. Wow!!!
    Your nails are beautiful and that color is amazing, I will go and check it out.

  5. AHHH this color is perfect. I want it!

  6. I just got this color a few weeks ago and put it on my toes this morning. The color is stunning, coral a bit of pink depending on the light. And it can almost look neon at times, but not blinding lol

    I will say that the formula was a pain to work with and I needed 3coats to be happy with the opacity. But I still love it!!


Thank-you for leaving a comment, I read every one! :)
