Essence Out Of Space Stories – 01 Outta Space Is The Place

OMG! I’m not sure how to describe this nail polish! It’s kind of an iridescent white/pink/green/purple colour. It reminds me of the opal ring I got for my 21st birthday. It’s perfectly pearlescent.

I’m so impressed with the quality of these Essence polishes, this one was only £2.00 from Wilko, and I personally think it’s comparable to the Nails Inc unicorn polish which is priced at £14.00.

Application was easy due to the shape of the brush and the quality of the polish which meant it was opaque after just one coat.

Photographs show a base coat, 2 coats of colour and a top coat.

Essence Christmas Party Nails

I thought I’d share with you the nails I wore for the Christmas party. I created this look using Essence Engaged and On Air!.

Engaged is a very delicate creme baby pink with a hint of shimmer. It was opaque in one coat but as usual I applied two. It dries to a satin finish, however, after I added a top coat it is shiny the way I like my nails.

On Air! is a fully coverage gold glitter polish and I think one of the best glitter nail polishes I’ve used. It is opaque in 2 coats which is what I applied.

I really can’t rave enough about the quality of these nail polishes especially for their low price! They are so easy to apply due to the flat, square brush and I am developing quite a collection!

Photographs show one coat of Essie First Base, 2 coats of colour and one coat of OPI RapidDry top coat. These nail polishes are available to buy here and in Wilkinsons stores in the U.K.

Let me know what you think!

Essence Party Princess

OMG, I’m so in love with my manicure and pedicure this week. Essence The Gel Nail Polish in no.07 Party Princess is, as the name suggests, a pink, sparkly delight! I’d not used any of the Essence nail polishes before, but I saw them in Wilkinsons the other day when I was buying bubble bath, and because they were so cheap and so cute I had to buy one. Obviously, being the girliest girl in Newcastle I was immediately drawn to this one. I think if my personality was bottled and sold in nail varnish form, it would look a lot like Party Princess.

Essence party princess is an opaque, jelly nail polish with flecks of multicoloured glitter. You could probably get it to be full coverage if you applied enough coats, but I applied it over 2 coats of Nails Inc Fiesta (a bright, showstopping pink). I really love the way the flecks of glitter look as the catch the light, all different colours as apposed to a uniform silver glitter you might find in similar nail polishes.

Application was really easy due to the flat, wide brush. I much prefer a flat brush to a round one, so that was a bonus in this nail polish. Party Princess is available to buy here, and is priced at only £1.60! Photographs show a base coat, 2 coats of Nails Inc Fiesta, 1 coat of Essence Party Princess and a top coat. I hope you like it as much as I do!
