Random Essence Color & Go swatches: Prom berry, Absolutely blue, Chick reloaded and That's what I mint

148 Prom berry is a blackened purple with a pretty shimmer. It’s very opaque in one coat, but this is 2 coats without a top coat.

Absolutely blue:
125 Absolutely blue is a slightly dusty pale blue, cornflower blue leaning. This is 3 coats, but for most 2 coats would be enough. It's discontinued.

Chick Reloaded:
122 Chick reloaded is a duochrome shifting from a dark teal green to a burgundy, slightly brown shade. In direct sun light it’s dark green with loads of shimmer, so the duochrome shift is happening in less strong light. It's discontinued. This is 2 coats without a top coat.

That's what I mint:
146 That’s what I mint is a light Tiffany box shade. This is 3 coats, but for most 2 coats would be enough.
Did you like any of them?

Essence Color & Go swatches: A Hint of Love, Over the Rainbow and Oh my glitter!

In this post I’m going to show you three random Essence Color & Go polishes. I used 2 coats for each color and no top coat. The application is easy and the dry time is good.

A Hint of Love:
169 A hint of love is a gorgeous red loaded with magenta-pink shimmer. It’s very opaque in one coat, but as mentioned this is 2 coats.

Over the Rainbow:
173 Over the rainbow is a pale blue duochrome with a light shift to purple and teal. It’s pretty, but not really my color…

OH my glitter!:
133 Oh my glitter! is sadly discontinued, but if you are dying to get it, I have a spare, if you pay the shipping… It’s a pretty medium purple with gorgeous shimmer in pink and blue. This is 3 coats, but for most 2 coats would be enough.
What do you think of these..?

Essence Beach Cruiser (the Sparkling Sand) swatches: I heart summer break and Keep calm and go to the beach

Today I have two Essence the Sparkling Sand polishes from the Beach Cruiser collection for you. I bought them without noticing they were texture polishes (not a favorite of mine) – I just fell in love with the colors :)
Both are easy to work with and are almost opaque in one coat, but I show then both in two coats without a top coat.

01 I Heart Summer Break:
01 I Heart Summer Break is a beautiful coral red, and it is truly sparkly… I chose to add top coat to the ring finger to show what that looks like…

03 Keep Calm and Go to the Beach:
03 Keep Calm and Go to the Beach is a pretty, cold toned green turquoise. Not as sparkly as the first one – but still OK in the sun.
I'm probably one of the very few who doesn't like textured polishes - but I love the colors of these.
Do you like them?

Flowers in the new wave

Normally I hate fall and winter, but this year I actually have been looking forward to it and consequently I have been craving darker colors much more than ever before, weird right?
But this mani is from when it still was summer :)
The base color is the beautiful sky blue P2 New Wave from the Pool Side Party coll. From the cuticles and down I added Essence Special Effect Topper in It’s Purplicious unevenly, like it’s dripping down the nail. Then I painted my flowers with acrylic craft paint, and the top coat is Seche Vite.
Normalt hader jeg efterår og vinter, men i år ser jeg frem imod sæsonen, og derfor er min lyst til mørke farver også steget markant i forhold til tidligere år, mærkeligt ikke?
Men dette design er fra da det stadig var sommer :)
Grundfarven er den smukke blå P2 New Wave fra Pool Side Party kollektionen. Fra neglebåndende og ned lagde jeg et ujævnt/foskelligt fra negl til negl lag af Essence Special Effect Topper in It’s Purplicious, som om det dryppede fra neglebåndene. Derefter malede jeg mine blomster med akrylfarve, og toplakken er Seche Vite.
