Essence – A Hint of Love

Catching up with the lovely Essence polishes I was lucky enough to pick up from the bloggers event a few weeks ago.  This is shade called A Hint of Love*

This is a good solid red shade with a bit of a shimmer…. lovely isn’t it?  You can see its one of the favourites (handy stick on the bottle!).  What you see here are two coats over a base of Essence Anti Split Nail Sealer and a top coat of G&G HK Girl.  The Essence bottles have a lovely brush, its tapered akin to the Dior brush so you can get close to the cuticle.  Formula is good, not too thick or too runny, it will flood your cuticles if you overload the brush.  Drying time is average but you can pop on two coats quite quickly if you wanted to.

Hopefully you’ve started to see these stands pop up in your local Wilkinsons and they handily now have it all online (and there was a 3 for 2!).

Let me know what you think in the comments – what Essence shades do you have?
