Essie "Fiji"

Today's notd is Essie's "Fiji," a cool baby pink. Though I am a nail polish fanantic, I own the least amount of pinks and reds. Even though "Fiji" is slightly cooler than what I prefer for my skin tone, my hands feel elegant whenever I put this color on.

In the sunlight, the stark tones of "Fiji" really stand out.

The baby pink color is much more noticeable when not in direct sunlight.

  • Pretty color that makes my hands feel very elegant and girly.
  • Despite it's cool white tint, I still believe this color would be appropriate for the workplace.

  • Streaky polish that required 3 to 4 coats on most fingers to achieve opacity.
  • Slightly too cool for my skin tone. I imagine this to look beautiful on someone with cooler tones.

Final Verdict: Essie "Fiji," though not an original color, is pretty nonetheless. And though the formula is streaky, 3 to 4 coats isn't asking too much of me. My only gripe about this color is the fact that it is slightly too cool for my skin tone. For this reason, I don't wear this color as much as my current favorite pink, OPI "Bubble Bath."


  1. Very feminine and pretty! (I think I'm officially biased, no nail color looks wrong on you!)

    1. I still really enjoy this. There are worse colors on me. That just means I don't wear them often enough to photograph.
