Hello, everyone! I hope you’re all having a wonderful start to your 2020! This is my very first post of the new decade and I hope to blog more often in the new year. (I know I say that all the time, but I’m really going to try this year.) Anyway, today I’ll be sharing my review of these new Essie polishes. They’re called “Expressie” and they claim to be dry in “about a minute.” I thought these were super interesting, so read on for my full review. 🙂

These polishes retail for around $9 USD and contain 10ml of polish; a regular Essie polish is also around $9 USD and contains 13.5ml, so these details are definitely something to consider when purchasing an Expressie polish. As I said, these Expressie polishes claim to be 8-free, vegan, and “dry in about a minute.” I chose two polishes from a display I found at Walgreens; “All Things OOO” and “Taxi Hopping.” I’ve already put together a full YouTube video detailing my opinion on these polishes and showing live swatches, so you can watch that below.

Overall, I was pretty impressed with these polishes! I was not expecting them to dry as well as they did and I would definitely recommend these if you’re looking for a quick-dry solution. Here are my swatch pictures…

There are a bunch more lovely polishes in this line, and I actually did find an Amazon link for all of these polishes. So, if you’re interested in these polishes, I’ll link them just below here for you.

I was so surprised to find these on Amazon! They’re also available (as far as I know) at Walgreens and possibly on Ulta’s website. I know they’re definitely available in the US and I’m pretty sure they’re available in Canada as well.

This was a really fun post to put together, so hopefully you’ll be seeing more like this in the near future. If you like seeing blog posts like this, definitely subscribe to the blog over in the sidebar. You won’t be receiving spams of notifications, just a convenient link whenever a new blog post is uploaded. It’s not often, so I promise I won’t clog up your inbox. In this new year, I’m completely revamping the entire blog post email. So instead of receiving the same notification all the time, each email sent to you will be a thoughtful, detailed, helpful email with a direct link to the new blog post. Almost like a newsletter? We’ll see what happens. So, I really hope you choose to subscribe. If you have any questions, please let me know.

I hope you’re all having a lovely day. Let me know in the comments if you’ve tried any Expressie polishes or if you’d like to try them. See you soon!

Have a polished rest of your day,
