Essie’s Go Ginza | The Perfect Summer Shade

If you follow my instagram, you will know that I am constantly changing up my nail colour but for spring and summer I have been leaning more towards the mints, blue, and lilacs. There is just something about a good pastel that really brightens my mood and gets me into the summer spirit. One of my absolute favourite shades for this sunny season is Essie’s Go Ginza. At first glance it seems to be a pretty lilac creme but it is really quite deceiving. Under the right light, this beauty becomes the slightest bit paler and then under direct sunlight it becomes a bright purple. I’m not sure if I got a wonky bottle or if it is widespread but I am in love with its versatility. As with most Essie polishes, the formula is a dream. It glides on smoothly and is opaque in two coats.

You can buy Essie at most drugstores and online at

Have you tried Go Ginza? What polishes are you loving?

    I love lavender/lilac; this particular color is soft & mild. I'm really into bold, bright colors at the moment. :] // ☼
