I now finally have a nail wheel to swatch nail polish on, so I can start making nail polish posts! I'm a real beauty blogger now ;) no really, my nails always look awful, so it's better to use a nail wheel. 
Anyway, today I wanted to tell you about one of my favourite Spring nail polishes - Essie Splash of Grenadine. I've been wearing it loads ever since I bought it about a month ago, I think it's the perfect shade for this season. It's what I call the perfect 'Barbie pink', a muted purply pink. Actually, it reminds me of the colour of orchids, too. Texture-wise, it's a creme nail polish with a shiny finish. It's perfectly opaque in two coats, with no streaks whatsoever. I also love the brush it comes with - like every nail polish from the diffusion line, it has a bigger brush which makes the applicasion so easy, even for a super clumsy girl like me.
The only thing I can complain about this nail polish is its price: as much as I love Essie nail polishes, at €12,50 they're just too expensive for me (and I just bought another one yesterday, sigh). It breaks my heart to think that they are only $8 in the UK, and even less in the US. 

What do you think about it? Have you ever tried any Essie nail polish?
