Essence Lime Up!

Only recently were Idahoans blessed with an Ulta so before we had one I never got the chance to test out any Essence polishes. These polishes are available on and in Ulta stores. The polishes run $1 for .16fl. oz. 

Lime Up! is a very vibrant yellow based "lime" green. It is a cream finish which is one of my favorites. These polishes come with a flat style brush. Some flat styled brushes are too wide for people but with this one it fits just right. These polishes claim to be quick drying and opaque in one coat. With this polish you actually need two to three coats and even then it is a bit streaky, however the coats do dry pretty fast.
The staying power for this polish is neither here nor there. It will stay on for longer than a day but it didn't last longer than 3 to 4 days. I also noticed that when it started to chip off it would come off in big pieces rather than small flakes.

Overall I will give this polish a 3.5/5 because the fact that it did take so long to get the polish opaque and how badly it chipped in such a short time.

Thanks for reading my first "real" polish review.

Enjoy yourself
