NOTD: Essie "A Crewed Interest"

I currently have Essie's "A Crewed Interest" on my nails and I love it. It works for those moments when something like Essie's "Van D'Go" is slightly too bright, but I still want a peachy-cantaloupe color. "A Crewed Interest" is from the Essie Navigate Her Collection for Spring 2012. Did I mention the name is pretty hilarious?

Essie's "A Crewed Interest" is a soft color that would work for all seasons. It's a beautiful peach that can work with every season. The formula is a bit streaky and it can take about 3-4 coats to reach opacity. With my skin tone, the pink tones in this polish seem to really pop (though still not as pink as something like Essie's "Van D'Go."

I personally don't mind that this polish leans slightly pink. I'm still in search of a polish similar to this but slightly less pink, but I still like this polish a lot!


  1. I was looking for swatches of Essie- A Crewed Interest and I stumbled upon your blog. Our collections are very similar, you have good taste! Sometimes if you paint a coat of white polish on your nail first, it really helps the color pop, and you only need a coat or two for full opacity!


    1. Thanks! (:
      I will definitely look into trying that, especially w/ gel finishes. I hate how they always show visible nail line.
