I've read such great things about Essence polishes on both agirlandherpolish and Sweet Sugar so I decided I'd have to give them a try.
They can be found in most Dunnes Stores and Penneys (Primark) around Ireland. Retailing at the fabulous price of 1.29 per bottle!
I went to purchase one and was overcome by the assortment of colours, shades, glitters!! So I settled on four bottles for now!
Modern Romance, Fateful Desire, Space Queen, A lovely Secret.
The first colour I tested was 'A lovely Secret'. Here's how it turned out!
Base Coat, 2x A lovely Secret, Top Coat.
Next I to tried out 'Modern Romance' with 'Space Queen'. The manicure worked out lovely, sorry the pictures aren't great!
Base Coat, 2x Modern Romance, 2x Space Queen, Top Coat.
I was very happy with the Essence polishes and will definitely purchase more, I think i've started a new obsession! The only downside I could find to these polishes was, they tend to dry very quickly, guess this can be a good thing, but if you're a bit of a slow painter, like myself, you may run into some difficulty.
