Essence – Oh My Glitter!

June 6th, 2013

And here we go again, yet another period of silence from me. It’s been a hectic period at work (and still is), plus the garden has been in need of maintenance. That means not much time left for blogging.

Anyway, here’s what I’m wearing on my nails at the moment, Oh My Glitter! from the Essence Colour & Go line. I fell in love with this polish when I first saw it at Nihrida. It’s a medium warm purple  with a beautiful pink and blue shimmer. With a name like that you would think that it’s a glitter polish, but it’s not. Not sure what they were thinking there… It’s a bit sheer but I thought it was enough with three coats plus Poshé top coat. The formula was great, it’s a bit thin but I prefer that to thicker ones. I did get some shrinkage, I don’t know if that would have happened on its own or if it was because of the top coat.

Unfortunately I didn’t get any good photos of this one, I came home late from work when the sun already had disappeared from our garden. So the first two photos are in the shade, and the third was me chasing the last rays of sun that was shining through the foliage of the nearby forest.

Do you see the pretty shimmer? You mostly see the pink shimmer and it’s really beautiful. And I love how the cap on the bottle is matching the actual nail polish.

I really wish Essence was sold here in Sweden! Ah well, at least I have a reason for visiting southern Europe again.. =)

    Riktigt snyggt! Påminner lite om effekten från Fantasy Fire faktiskt..

      Ja, det kanske det gör lite nu när du säger det.. Det är inte på långa vägar så glödande som Fantasy Fire ser ut att vara (har det inte själv) men det är ett tydligt skimmer i det iaf.

  2. Kul att du är tillbaka igen.
    Och med ett underbart vackert lack verkligen. 🙂

      Tack, det känns skönt att komma igång lite igen =) Det har blivit sena kvällar med jobb och då blir det inte mycket ork kvar till annat tyvärr.

      Ja det är ett underbart lack, jag önskar bara jag hade köpt en backup på det när jag hade chansen!
