{Review} Some more new Essence Nail Polishes

Hi guys ! Happy Wednesday . How is your week going ? My last two weeks has been hectic crazy busy at work - so sorry for the lack of posts. 

As I mentioned, a little while back Essence sent me a cute Press Pack with a few new polishes - I got the grey at Dischem the same day too - so decided to throw it in with the rest.

So let's go onto those awesome polishes and swatches. 


Essence Grey Zone
As you know - I have a soft spot for grey and nude polishes - so when I popped into Dischem (after getting the press pack just as I was about to leave to go ) I knew I had to get this gorgeous grey. And let's be real ? Who pops into Dischem just for the medicine they need ? I can't.

This is the most gorgeous grey polish. When Essence All About the Grey came out I knew I would love the grey. Then I saw this gem on Instagram and fell in love instantly . This polish is a gorgeous light grey colour that is opaque in two coats. If you love grey polishes - you will LOVE this one too. It looks super gorgeous against my skin tone - which is a huge bonus. 
  


Essence Need Your Love
This is the perfect winter / cold weather colour. This is a deep reddish brown that looks pretty dark but when the light hits it you do see the reddish brown colour . Again - I love dark colours - and this is no exception. If you like dark vampy colours this is the perfect for you. I do think the formula is super shiny on it's own without topcoat. I used two coats for the swatch below. 




Essence Pink Lagoon
As I mentioned with the previous Essence New Nail Releases Post - I did get one colour to try with the silver base that time . I didn't try it with a silver base this time round too - but this jelly colour is definitely more opaque as the last colour I got. I can see myself rocking this colour in spring and summer. This is such a gorgeous berry toned pink - that was pretty opaque (not completely - but about 90% ) in two coats. This will make a gorgeous pedicure colour too. 




Essence Party Nights
I love purples ( It's strangely enough the colour I buy most next to nudes and greys ) yet I don't wear them enough. Essence Party Nights is a gorgeous deeper purple (but not to the point that it looks black ) . The colour is gorgeous and I'm sure if you are paler like me or even a deeper skin tone - this colour will suit you. It's a pretty gorgeous universal colour . The formula is buttery and easy to use . I used 2 coats in the swatch below. 


Essence Gummy Touch Top Coat
While the bottle does say it will leave you with a "Matt Effect" I will say this will leave you more with a satin Matt finish than a Matt finish . Essence does amazing satin / Matt polishes so I did go into this with extremely high hopes. The formula of this polish did dry a little streaky on me - which is a little bit of a downer for me. I'm not sure if the polish didn't like the colour I picked to try it on - but it also took quite a while to completely dry down and start looking Matt- but the end result is still pretty good .

How has YOUR week been ? Have you tried any new colour polishes I should look into ? 

All polishes apart from the Essence Grey Zone was sent for review. All opinions on the polishes are my own.

  10. I am also a fan of the grey polish. Grey is like black and white, it goes well with anything. It is subtle and work appropriate but still manages to catch anyone's eye. Thanks for the review!
