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.

Nails Inc Optic Wave

How happy was I this week to see that there was a free Nails Inc polish in Boots with every purchase of Colgate toothpaste?! The colours available were blue, green, pink and red. I chose the green polish which I think is called Optic Wave.

Optic Wave is a weird shade in that, it looks mint green in the bottle but goes on a kind of light duck-egg blue. The formula of this polish is quite runny which made it challenging to paint my toes, although with care it was achievable.

It was opaque after one coat but photographs show a base coat, 2 coats of colour and a top coat.

Thanks for reading!

   
 

Rimmel Out Of The Blue

I’m clearly in a teal mood at the moment as this week I have chosen Rimmel Out Of The Blue for my manicure and pedicure. This colour is hard to describe, it’s a dark teal green with blue undertones. These photographs don’t do it justice at all as I was wholly unable to capture a true likeness.

Application was easy due to the flat brush, I really much prefer a flat brush when applying nail varnish as it just makes it so much easier to achieve smooth, clean lines. What is even better about this nail varnish is that I picked it up for just £1 in Pound World in South Shields!

Nails Inc Queen Victoria Street

This week’s manicure and pedicure will not be everyone’s cup of tea! Queen Victoria Street is a bright emerald green and I just love it! I bought this nail varnish last year and I’m already half way through the bottle, which, considering how many nail varnishes I have, is a massive achievement!

Application is easy, the formula of the polish is consistent and perfectly opaque after one coat. Photographs show a base coat, two coats of colour, and a top coat. Although these photographs are not wholly colour accurate as the polish is slightly darker and brighter in real life, but my camera refused to capture this!

Nails Inc Green Park

I’ve been a massive fan of neutral colours recently (last week I wore Nails Inc The Thames) and this week’s manicure and pedicure does not disappoint. I’ve chosen Nails Inc Green Park which is hard to describe as a shade, it looks green in the bottle but goes on kind of a slate grey; with a hint of teal green! Maybe I’d best let the photos do the talking!

Application was smooth and easy, the formula is perfect and the colour is opaque after one coat.

Nails Inc Battersea Park

This week’s nails come from Nails Inc’s autumn/winter trio, Battersea Park is an olive green which is described on the website as khaki.

Application is perfect due to the newly redesigned brush and the opaqueness of the polish. I’m really pleased with this colour as it is slightly unusual yet still very pretty. This polish is available to buy here
