Did you have a good weekend? Mine was busy but not bad. I wouldn’t mind another day of weekend though 😉
I am sure you have all seen the Essence Merry Berry collection. I’ve seen everyone lusting over it and posting photos of the collection. It is one of the prettiest collections for sure! So of course when I saw it in the shop I just had to grab them all. Before I show you the polishes I have a few things to say about the collection that is applicable across the board.
First of all, I heard all along that this collection will be available at Dischem. I actually bought these at Clicks. I assume they will be available at both stores so have a look at both if you are struggling to find them. I will probably mention it for each polish again but I was so impressed by how opaque they all were. All f them could probably be one coaters. Super impressed! Ok, let me show you the polishes.
Essence – Pink & perfect
This is 2 coats with no topcoat. The name suggests pink but it’s more of a plum colour. It does have a slight pink undertone though. Very opaque and really nice formula. This is such a pretty creme and I can imagine it will be a popular colour.
Essence – Red rocks
This is 2 coats with no topcoat. It’s a very pink toned red creme. It’s a nice bright colour too which makes this collection a nice variety of brighter and darker shades. This one is also very opaque and really nice formula.
Essence – Purple with purpose
This is 2 coats with no topcoat. This might be my favourite one of the collection. This is a purple with a stunning blue & violet ish shimmer. I took a million photos and this is the best I could do to try and get the shimmer. It’s absolutely stunning! Very opaque and great formula. If you only get one of these polishes – and I think you should get them all – then this is it.
Essence – The masked ball
This is 2 coats with no topcoat. This is a gorgeous dark dark purple creme. It’s quite dark and a nice addition to a christmas collection. Very opaque and great formula. Just look at how shiny it is too.
Essence – I love my golden pumps
This collection also comes with a gold glitter. I was worried it would just be another gold glitter and didn’t think it would be anything special. I was so wrong! Let me show you.
Over Purple with purpose
Over Pink & perfect
This is one coat of I love my Golden pumps over each colour. This glitter is like foil shards in a clear base. It it absolutely stunning! I actually really like it over the darker colours but it is so pretty over anything. I actually tested it over a turquoise and it looked just as stunning. This is definitely a great topper. Not your average gold glitter.
What do you think of this collection? Are you also eager to grab it? Have you picked up any of these polishes? Which one is your favourite? I am really impressed with the whole collection. The colours are stunning. Let me know which ones you picked up or would pick up.
Thanks for reading,
