Essence: Hello Rosy

Back at the end of last year Essence came with three textured polishes (which are still patiently waiting in my untrieds pile… shame on me!), as known as the Sparkle Sand Effect line. Recently they added a few more textured polishes. One of them is Hello Rosy, a sort of vintage pink hue packed with matte pink glitter. I especially like this one for it’s unique color. essence - hello rosyI used two coats, no top coat. Formula is okay, not perfect but definitely nothing to complain about. I did a quick swatch with last years red polish from this line and this one dries faster.essence - hello rosy1What do you think of this one?

China Glaze: Wish On A Starfish – Sea Goddess Collection

Have you noticed that more and more brands come up with entire textured collections? They’re everywhere! I don’t mind, I love them!

Today I have Wish On A Starfish from China Glaze‘s Sea Goddess Collection to show you. This is a pale pink with golden shimmer running throughout. I’ve used two coats for the picture below:china glaze - wish on a starfishIt’s a pity that the golden shimmer doesn’t show up in my picture. It’s lovely!

How does this compare to Catrice’s Call Me Princess?catrice vs. china glazeWish On A Starfish is obviously a lighter shade of pink. Also I think the golden shimmer in Call Me Princess is slightly more noticeable than Wish On A Starfish. They’re both pretty! Formula wise they’re quite similar. They both need two coats for full opacity.

Do you have a favorite textured polish?

Gosh: Frosted Silver & Frosted Gold

Hi loves!

I hope you’re all enjoying a fantastic weekend! Today I’d like to show you two polishes that are perfect for the Holidays:Gosh - Frosted Silver GoldThe silver shade is called Frosted Silver and the gold one Frosted Gold (what else? ;)), both by Gosh. These polishes both have a textured finish. They’re slightly rough but not annoyingly gritty. The gold one is a little denser than the silver one, so you could get away with just one coat 🙂 I used two coats of both here with no top coat.

What do you think of these? Have you thought of what polish(es) to wear during the Holidays?
