Essence has recently released their new Trend Edition, Floral Grunge. I’d like to show you the five nail polishes of this collection. When I saw the descriptions on the bottle caps I got very excited about this collection. For example, ‘The Rough’ and ‘The Suede’. But after swatching these, I came to the conclusion that nothing is what it seems like… Scroll down and judge for yourself 😉
Lily Bloom – The Pearl, an off white cream with shimmer. The description “The Pearl” made me think this would have a pearly finish, but it hasn’t. It’s a nice shade though. I needed three coats to get it opaque.
Be Flowerful – The Shine, a corally orange cream. Since it’s sheer I needed three coats for full opacity. Also, it’s streaky. But one coat of Seche Vite evened it out to a nice glossy finish.
Grunge Me Tender – The Suede, a soft mint green shimmer with a satin finish (not suede). I used three coats but I think it could be done with two 🙂 (no top coat)
Madly Purpled – The Matt, a matte dusty purple. This dried extremely quick. I used two coats here, without top coat.
Black To The Roots – The Rough, a semi matte black shade with silver glitter. As the description suggests, I was expecting a ‘rough’ textured finish. It is a bit gritty thanks to the glitter, but textured… NO. Still like this! You?This collection is available at stores until the end of this May.
