Essie No More Film

Essie No More Film is the polish I wanted the most from Essie's new resort collection ever since the preview pics first came out. It's a rich indigo creme that reminds me a lot of one of my absolute favorite polishes, OPI Road House Blues from last year's Touring America Collection. No More Film looks to have just a hint more purple to it but if you already have Road House Blues then I'd say you probably don't need No More Film. But I totally needed them both...yeah, that's the logic we'll go with. ;)




The formula on No More Film is perfection. It's a one-coater with smooth, worry-free application. When Essie gets their cremes right, their formulas are practically beyond compare. I love this polish! I find these indigo shades so chic yet extremely wearable--maybe even a little sophisticated too.


Did you get any polishes from Essie's resort collection? This is the only one I picked up. I was extremely tempted by She's Picture Perfect, even though I have a ton of pastel purple Essies that I'm sure are fairly similar to it. Still, I may have to go back for that one...

    1. I love it too! I wouldn't say this is an exact dupe for Road House Blues, just based off eyeballing the two polishes rather than doing an actual comparison, but they're definitely in the same neighborhood. So that makes it okay. :)

  5. I have both. I think Road House Blues is a little darker. Also I think the finish on the new Essie is a bit more modern - not just a typical cream. It has more of a flat (not matte), less shinny finish kind of like some of the newer finishes that look more rubber like - taking a opaque cream to that new area. Of course with a clear coat over it, it turns very shinny on me and I always use a top coat (usually SV). I was trilled with it when I got it. I like the green in this collection (Incognito) as well too and also 'She's Picture Perfect.' The iridescent in it is wonderful without being too much. It's also got gray to the shade so that it does not look like so many other Essie pastel lilac shades. Great collection on a whole.

    1. Oops - mixed up (it's late) no Incognito in Resort - Incognito was in Essie Winter 2010 - a great green cream if you don't have it yet - worth looking for.

    2. the color is too purple to be a true indigo--OPI doesn't have a color or finish combination that's comparable right now. i usually don't buy Essie--i think the quality is inconsistent compared to OPI--but i bought this yesterday, and the one-coat option, the color, and the feel is better than any OPI i've bought in a long time. really great color and composition.

    3. @beachgirl: I never really noticed it but now that you mentioned it, I'd agree there are some textural differences. I've been lemming Incognito for a while but whenever I see it I never pull the trigger for one reason or another--usually there's something newer that I want, I guess. But it's a seriously lovely color and Essie greens are so few and far between that I want them all haha.


      @Amy: I'm not sure if this would qualify as a blurple then? I almost called it that in the post but it didn't seem quite right to me since it's on the darker side. Essie formulas are hit or miss, I agree completely. But when they really get it right, they are AMAZING to work with. But conversely they've got their fair share of nightmare formulas too.

    1. I bought it for the same reason. :) I don't think you would regret getting it at all. It's got such a great formula and the color is so beautiful!
