I usually love me my essence nail polish. I love the brush, I love the quality – and all for a price that won’t make me worry a lot about “hm, do I really NEED this polish, should I really buy it?”. With essence, and for 1,55 Euros a piece, I just do.
This polish, however, was a bit of a let down. It looked amazing in the bottle, a dusty dark blue, leaning a bit to purple, AND glitter to top it off:
Lovely, isn’t it?
Unfortunately, and I have no idea why, it turned to a simple midnight-blue on my nails, the glitter only visible if you looked very, very close.
I intended to wear it on its own, but then got so bored with it, that I just had to spice it up a little, in this case with a stamping:
And this I like quite a lot. I think I will try this the other way around someday, with an off-white as main color and a dark blue for stamping, going for the “delicate china” look. 🙂
