NOTW: Essie Full Steam Ahead

Pastel purple is not perhaps the most flattering shade for me (Hello lobster hands!). But I love purple so I wear it anyway. I’m a rebel yo.

Essie Full Steam Ahead is a cream finish with very faint shimmer particles and it applies quite well and wears quite well.


This photo is two coats over a coat of OPI Nail Envy and with Seche Vite top coat.

Do you have certain colors that you like but that just aren’t good on your skin tone?

  1. Ah, I feel ya entirely on purple. I can’t wear purples, browns, blues, yellows, whites, off whites, peaches… can’t wear a lot of colours, actually. Taupes and reds are the only ones that look nice on my hands, lol. This is a lovely colour though, looks good on you! =)

    1. Thank you! ❤️Colors and what they do to our skin tones are so WEIRD! I can’t do taupe a if they’re too warm or too cool and blues are rarely amazing. Yellow? Forget about it! But sometimes I wear those colors anyway because I don’t care if I look dead or like a weird lobster lady 🙂 most if the time I skip my unflattering shades.
