Essie Fun In The Gondola Nail Polish Review and Comparisons

Essie Fun In The Gondola was originally called Fondala Gondola, was released in the Fall 2002 collection called GoGo. I am not sure why Essie changed the name. When I was searching the internet, with this being an old collection, the only information I found out about this collection, was it consisted of six nail polishes and the names of those polishes as well.   

Fun In The Gondola is a gorgeous rosy pink shade, which I absolutely love. This is one of my favourite shades from Essie, as the colour is just so stunning. It’s a shade that I wear mainly in the Spring and Summer, but would look lovely in Autumn for a pop of colour. 

It is a cream formula, which has a lovely consistency. On the first coat it was so easy to apply and you could still see my nail underneath a bit. On the second coat it was fully opaque.

Essie Gel Couture Stitch By Stitch is not as rosy pink and is a lighter shade. Zoya Brandi is a darker pink, which is more of a berry shade.

This is a nail polish that you can find on sites like Ebay and Amazon. It is also available from Ella Gray for £6.50 (I have previously spoken about this site before. It’s a website in the UK, but are shipped from the US, so I only order two polishes at once, so I don’t get custom, etc charges)

Leave me a comment below. What do you think to this shade?
