essence … & the lovely little things collection swatches
Essence & My Milky Coffee nail polish (above). I can’t even handle how splendid this white is. In 2 stupid-fast coats, you get this: totally opaque with a matte finish. It’s good for underpants and it’s also good all by itself. If you’d prefer a shiny white, hit it with top. Weirdly, it doesn’t say it’s matte on the website but the bottle does.
Essence & My Flaky Caty nail polish (above). I’m not going to lie – the cute factor just slays me! The 2-coat shimmery, semi-matte, pepper-esque flecked peachy polish-actual? Not so much. I had some trouble coming up with wordage so I asked RNK to write me a guest blob. She said “I'm not sure you want me to write the guest words for that one, bc the first thing that comes to mind is "it looks like nude polish with litterbox glitter" and people are probably gonna think that means I don't like it.” Yeah. That.
Essence & My Satin Puddle nail polish (above). I love it. I don’t know why it’s puddle and not poodle like the image on the bottle but I don’t care because this $2 polish looks like a million bucks on me!
Essence & My Matt Hat nail polish (above). That’s 2 coats of crazy smooth matte awesomeness. I can’t handle how much I love Essence polishes. I love them so much I have them shipped up from the US because I can’t get all of them here. I also love my mule (RNK) because she’s the best mule of ever.
If you live in the US, you can get your cute little online-exclusive, limited edition set of Essence & The Lovely Little Things polishes directly from essencemakeup.com. If you’re in Europe or the UK, I got no clue where to get 'em. If you’re in Canada, there are some Essence displays in Superstores or Shoppers stores but you won’t find these there – I know because I stalk.
And that’s it for me today! I’m heading to the interwebz to see what else I can find at Essence Cosmetics. I hear they’ll be having a smashing Black Friday sale and I like to make lists so I can stuff my cart with purpose and with speed.
