Happy Monday! I hope you are well rested after all the public holidays we have had lately. Just one more to go on Wednesday for the elections so another semi short week for everyone. I love public holidays 😀
I was beyond thrilled when Thea from Madness Nails told me the Essence Vintage District collection was out at Dischem. Unfortunately I didn’t get to Dischem until recently. Dischem is quite out of the way but recently Dischem opened at Pavilion, which means it is now just around the corner. Anyway, as luck would have it I wasn’t able to get the one I was most looking forward to. I could only find 3 and the one I couldn’t find is Essence – Vintage pink. Let me show you the other 3.
Essence – Vintage peach
This is 2 coats with no topcoat. This is a peachy orange (almost mustardy) creme that is very opaque. Great formula made for easy application. I wasn’t sure this was going to be a favourite but I actually really really like it. It’s a little different.
Essence – Shopping @Portobello road
This is 2 coats with no topcoat. This is a teal-ish creme. In the photo it leans more blue but in other lighting it leans a bit more green. It is really quite pretty. I did have some staining of the skin but it didn’t stain my nails. I didn’t wear it for very long though so I would double up on base coat just in case. Also very opaque.
Essence – Get arty
This is 2 coats with no topcoat. it is a really pretty grey packed with pink / coppery shimmer. It has a nice density of shimmer but in the sun this really shines. It is a little more subtle indoors or in the shade but still quite visible and gorgeous. Definitely a favourite. Once again, very opaque.
What do you think of this collection? Do any of these stand out for you? Do you have any of them? I am a little sad I don’t have the Vintage pink.
Thanks for reading,
