Essie Punchy Pink 694 Swatch, Review & Dupes



This is probably my favourite pink nail polish of all time. Essie Punchy Pink 694 is a bright warm neon pink. It's lighter than most other neons which really sets it apart. I also like the way it makes me look a lot more tanned than I really am. It dries to a matt finish so you'll need a topcoat to get it glossy. My one is on the thick side but it's still easily applied.

Essie Punchy Pink (flash)

I used 2 coats here which is fine for real life (the camera picks up any unevenness). I get good wear out of these, approx 3-4 days before I get any tip wear. As for dupes Essie's Pink Parka is about the closest (a bit cooler in tone) or Models Own Bubble Gum (slightly darker and cooler in tone)



UPDATE: More Comparisons...

    1. Hi sorry you can't find any of these! You could try fuchsia rage by nina pro from Sally's. The formula isn't as good though but the colours are quite similar. Also you can get bubble gum from modelsownit.com. I'll try and do a photo of the comparisons when I can! Hope that helps!
