It’s showtime… with essence!”
Let’s take a closer look!
First up, two favorite colors of mine… pink and purple! The pink one is called Best Pop and contains lots of pink and gold shimmer, fleck like. Yummie! The formula is nice and the pigmentation of this one is good. I used two coats plus top coat here.
The lilac one, Best Female, one the other hand is extremely sheer. It also has lots of gorgeous shimmer but I did needed three and a half generous coats for full opacity. And still I have some visible nail line.And here we have Best Hip-Hop, a very sheer gunmetal base packed with fine multi colored glitter. I’m doubting if this is buildable to an opaque finish on it’s own so I layered it over a grey base color. On my accent nail I’m wearing two coats of Best Rock, a metallic silver base with a hint of fine multi colored shimmer.
Last AND least… Biggest Fan, a glow in the dark top coat with silver holographic stars running throughout. Honestly, I threw away my photo’s as soon as I uploaded them because this is a huge disappointment to me. I added one coat over a white base because glow in the dark top coats work best over lighter colors. Getting a nice amount and placement of the star shaped glitter was almost impossible. I didn’t needed to fish them out of the bottle, that’s a plus. But they just don’t work well with this polish. At the end I just dabbed some on my nails which resulted in a gooey uneven finish. Ugh. This isn’t for me. So, sorry guys I only have a bottle shot to show you:
Thanks for stopping by! :*
