Hey There Polished People!
I know you’ve heard/read me rave about Essence polishes lately. The more I try of them the more I just absolutely love them! I keep saying I think they’re the most underrated drugstore brand of polish and I’m sticking to it. Essence is a brand that’s HUGE in Europe, and it’s only now starting to become a much-sought-after brand in North America. Trust me when I say you wanna jump on this bandwagon. 🙂 I’ll tell you where you can find Essence products at the bottom of this post. For now let’s see the nail art I did with this polish and then I’ll tell you my thoughts on this particular color.
Essence Sweet As Candy
Essence Sweet As Candy is cotton candy for your nails. It’s a sweet baby pink color, although a bit sheer. For the nails I stamped over I think I applied 4 coats of polish. Granted, they were rather thin coats, but that’s still a lot and more than I expected. The good news is that this polish is perfect for a pink jelly sandwich. Who needs those Nails Inc sprinkles polishes when you can get the same look with this Essence polish and some glitter like you see in the second two photos? 🙂
Like I mentioned about, I thought Sweet As Candy took more coats of polish than I’d hoped but other than that the formula was great. Smooth, dried quickly, easy to apply all around. If you really hate VNL (visible nail line) you’ll want to use some undies with this or just apply a ton of coats. However if you’re looking for a soft, sheer pink perfect for french manicures and jelly sandwiches then this is your perfect pink polish.
Yes, Please! or No, Thank You:
I like this polish for jelly sandwiches and I think I’ll do some french manicure nails in the future, so for me this is a yes, please. That being said, this particular one isn’t my favorite Essence but that may be because I’m not THAT big of a “pink” fan, or a fan of VNL. 🙂
If I Named This Polish I Would Call It: Naughty Ballerina Panties
It’s baby pink but made to be sheer… you connect the dots.
How do you like this polish? Which nails were your favorite? Are you someone who hates VNL or does it not bug you? Also- have you bought any Essences? You can find them at Fred Meyer, Ulta and HEB in the US and Shoppers and Pharmaprix in Canada. 🙂 Go out and grab some, their new colors for fall/winter of 2012 are really pretty! Thanks for reading and till next time- Happy Polishing!! 😀
