I hope you loved my post yesterday with the first batch of the new Essence polishes. Because today is time for the second batch! Same thing: I loved them all. I will try to not say it over and over with every one 😉
Essence – Splash!
This one should’ve been included in yesterdays post as it fits in much better with those colours 😉 This is 2 coats with no topcoat. It has the same shimmer that Over the rainbow has. The kind that looks like it in glass. You know, like when you look into a marble. Anyway, the colour of this is tricky. It seemed blue in some light and in some light it is more green. There is also a purple / violet tone to it. I think you can see it best in the bottle than on my nails. It is a teeny bit brush strokey but with a topcoat it is much much better. I would be interested to see how it stamps.
Essence – Purple sugar
When I first saw this polish my first though was “another weird name, its pink not purple’ but I was wrong. Once I applied it to my nails its pretty obvious it is purple. It is a pink toned purple but definitely ‘purple’. This is a gorgeous colour. This is 2 coats with no topcoat but it is so rich and beautiful it is almost a one coater. Great formula, great application, great colour. Definitely a favourite creme!
Essence – Be berry now
Isn’t this a beautiful colour? Rich, beautiful berry pink creme. This is 2 coats with no topcoat and as you can see, also the glossy finish. Great formula on this one as well. Of course, it makes me think of Tip Top – Pot – o – berries. (I haven’t compared it but I suspect this is a little bit darker)
Essence – a hint of love
This is 2 coats with no topcoat. I must say this photo does it no justice. It is gorgeous. It is a berry red base packed with a gold shimmer. It might not be the most unique in idea but it definitely is gorgeous. This is 2 coats with no topcoat. It probably could do with a third but it was absolutely good in 2. As beautiful as this is as is, with topcoat it goes to another level. It is gorgeous! You want this!
Essence – Once upon a time
I wasn’t sure about this one initially but I actually love it. It is like a pink toned copper with shimmer. This is 2 coats with no topcoat. It just screams ‘antique’ to me. I have an idea with this in mind and if it works out I will be showing you soon!
Essence – Be my lucky star
When I snatched up the Rimmel Space dust I was so excited to have a silver texture and looky here! This is 2 coats with no topcoat. I was a little worried on the first coat as it looked a bit sheer but looks how great it builds up in 2 coats. Bonus is that there are some big holo hexes in here too. See in the bottle just under my fingers? So gorgeous. I know you love it too yes?
Essence – Hello Rosy
Ok, remember my camera and pink? Well this looks a bit peachy here but it is a bit more pink. This is a texture dusty rose colour with red / dark pink glitter. It looks like my favourite strawberry smoothy to be honest. This is 2 easy coats with no topcoat. Really great colour on this one. I am so in love with it. I was actually stopped in the shop wearing just this. It is really pretty and unique. Remember that it is a little more pink but a dusty pink. LOVE this one!
Yesterday I showed you the black and white glitter topper over some of those polishes and I also have it for you today over 2 of these. So,
