NOTD: Essie Going Incognito

This is Essie's Going Incognito - a gorgeous deep emerald green.  It has a flat cream finish, and manages to look sophisticated and a little bit trendy all at once.  This is three coats; the third wasn't strictly necessary but did make the finish absolutely smooth and opaque.  Wear was fantastic - this photo was taken after four days wear, and as you can see the tipwear is minimal.  Very hardwearing!  This is also one of the glossiest polishes I've used recently: even without topcoat it had an impressive shine.

Whilst this is definitely a rich wintery colour, I didn't really think that it was particularly Christmas-y until one of my (male) colleagues pointed it out.  With a touch of gold or red glitter over the top, this'd be one festive manicure!

If you'd like to try it for yourself, you can find it at, where it will cost you £8.50 for 15ml.
