Essence ~ It’s My Party

Essence ~ It’s My Party
Dark pink metallic shimmer


First of all I want to wish you all a merry Christmas. I hope that there will be something shiny for you underneath the Christmas tree! 😇

Today I’m going to show you the other polish that I bought from Essence’s “Crushed Metals” collection. I already showed you “I’m Cool With It!” – click here to be taken to that post if you missed it.

The formula is good. I used two easy coats for full opacity and the drying time was good. I could have got away with one coat because this polish is really pigmented.

Here’s the mani I made with it:

The skull is a water decal from Evilbay.
I used the brush strokes technique on the middle finger. The base is white and I made the brush strokes with the two Essence Brushed Metals polishes.
The dots on my pinkie and my pointer are white and the blue Essence on top.

Here are the water decals before I started. Aren’t they just cool? I love them all!

And here are the three polishes I used today.
