Here is one of the Essence polishes I received from my lovely friend in Holland. Glamorous Life is a red glass flecked polish with strong pink undertones. Like all the Colour and Go Essence Polishes, its a lovely little bottle holding 5ml of product, and is an absolute bargain for the price.
The formula on this one was a little bit on the runny side – careful application needed. However, after three thin and careful coats, you can see the results above. I used Essie Billionails as the undercoat and then used Seche Vite on top. Its very shiny when it dries anyway, but a top coat just helps to bring the best of the flecks out.
I’ll be honest here, wear was not like the other Essence Polishes I have. It was chipped within 24 hours. I may need to retry this with a different base coat and top coat as I did experience significant shrinkage and that may have contributed to the reduced wear time. The colour is FANTASTIC, I could not have asked for a better summer colour and I am definitely going to wear it again.
