While I’m typing this I’m seriously sleep deprived, so excuse me if I make no sense. More about that in an update soon! Let’s talk about nail polish right now, and the Essence nail polishes in particular. I’ve always liked their cheap little bottles. They came in a great colour selection and the quality was really good! Essence is updating their nail polishes now, so before everything goes, I wanted to share two of my favourite shades. They both are so nice for the great weather. If you can get your hands on these don’t hesitate!
The Colour&Go nail polishes come in little bottles of 5 ml and they go for around 2 euro if I remember correctly. That’s really cheap and you get to play around with some fun shades. They have a classic brush, and I do really appreciate the size of it, because despite the rather small brushes, the brushes are not too tiny.
C’est La Vie is a warm orange with a salmon pink to it. It’s not too bright, but it’s slightly muted. The finish is non glittery and rather glossy. I’d say that the formula was a bit on the thick side, it applied a bit streaky, but once it dries the streaks disappear. It’s really well pigmented too, two coats for a nice finish! What I love about this shade is that it’s in between bright, but slightly muted. It’s a very positive colour too, it says fun and bright to me!
Choose me is a jelly with a medium teal base loaded with golden and teal shimmers. It applies rather sheer because of the sheer base, so I decided to experiment with it. I absolutely adore the glitters, the combination is just pure love for me. It’s very sparkly and I love how the shimmers add lots of dimension to it. The formula was really good, but sheer. I need three layers for an opaque finish. I did experiment with two other nail polishes as a base colour. On my ring finger I used an opaque aqua blue, it gives an instant opaque effect when you layer ‘Choose Me’ over it. On my pinkie I used a blackened blue base, result was a very deep teal colour. I love that the darker blue brings out the teal glitters out more, so yeah you can make interesting combinations with this shade!
I love both shades, They each have their own appeal to me. I do love to experiment with glitter nail polishes, I love layering them and make interesting combinations. You should try it if you didn’t already!
