I have this lovely little bottle here of Essence Color & Go in Sure Azure. Now I always think of deep sparkling sapphire blue when I think of azure, but this is a grey toned baby blue with a very delicate shimmer. The formula was easy to work with and went on without issue, and my pic is with just two coats. The first coat was a little streaky, but nothing to moan about, and the second coat evened it out anyway. It dried with a lovely shine too, the pic is without any top coat, just the polish, you can see how shiny it is! I love the colour and the finish, these essence polishes are proving to be rather nice additions to my collection.
Things were looking pretty at this stage, then I added a coat of Essence Nail Art Special Effect! Topper in Its Purplicious. This is tiny purple glitter with larger purple and dark pink square glitter, suspended in a clear base. This went on really well, and there is lots of glitter crammed into this polish! Again, it is very shiny and catches the light really well, and was a perfect accompaniment to the colours I was already sporting. I finished off with a final layer of NYC Starry Silver, and that was it done.
I love this mani, but I do love to experiment with these glitters, I can't wait to try them out over different colour combinations. When I do, you will be the first to know! I hope you like it, I only wish the sun had come out to let me show you the full sparkly nature of this lovely combination.
