Essie After School Boy Blazer & A Base Coat Find

essie after school boy blazer

I recently took advantage of one of OzSales many Essie sales they seem to have (full size polishes for $5.00AUD).

In my little Essie order I picked up After School Boy Blazer which i’m pretty sure is from a Autumn collection in 2013. It’s Navy, almost black… Could we call it Blavy? lol! This “Blavy” shade applied amazingly to my nails, I was in a bit of a rush so only did one coat. You’ll see I probably could have done with 2 to even things up but the coat I did do was quite opaque, something i’m not really used to from my other Essie shades.

Now onto the amazing base coat, I’ve had Orly Bonder* sitting in my stash for quite some time. My nails have been shit lately with ridges, peeling and all those attractive things that make polishes look gross. I figured I better start looking after them a bit more and decided to finally try out this base coat.


I am honestly getting 5 days out of my mani’s with minimal tip wear; this stuff just makes your polish stick. It’s brilliant. LOVE!

On a side note – I’m thinking of trying Revitanail to revive my nails, anyone used this or have any other recommendations?
